    Default 2 Channel mixers

    Right now I'm looking to get a 2 channel mixer with an X1 to compliment my soon to be acquired Technics. I've done a lot of research but I'm still not sure what mixer I should get. So far these are the possibilities i've concluded:

    -Xone 22
    -DJM 400
    -Vestax (i've heard their mixers are great but i don't know a lot about the models)


    Anyone have any input or suggestions?

    the market isnt overwhelming.. Rane got some. But they are expensive.

    Once I was looking for a worthy 2 channel mixer with dual effect processors(like the djm 800) didnt find anything so i ended up with a djm 800..

    That Audio Innovate unit I saw on the buy and sell forum is pretty nice.

    Mixing or scratching?

    If mixing, what style?

    Do you want to stay at that budget level? Save money? Don't care?

    Do you want effects/filters/etc.?

    Do you want exactly 2 channels, and if so, why?

    For mixing, not scratching.

    I'd like to stay under 500 dollars. Completely willing to buy used.

    Effects are unnecessary because I'm gunna use traktors effects with a DVS system. Filters would be nice (hence the xone 22 option).

    I say 2 channels because for one, they're smaller and two, they're generally cheaper. Also, I rarely use sample decks so I really don't need more than 2 channels.

    I don't think there are any 2-channel mixers worth buying under $500, but I also don't think about them much because "2-channel" means "battle mixer" in my head.

    That being said, I'd recommend the vmc-002xl over what you have listed, mostly because I'd expect it to be more reliable.

    I think Pioneer mixers suck, and the DJM 400 gives you even less for your money than the ones people like. But I'll admit that if they weren't so popular, I'd merely prefer other mixers rather than hating them so vehemently.

    And I've read a lot of horror stories with the xone:22's long-term reliability. I also think it's laid out horribly, but that's just me.

    I can't really give any other recommendations because the only 2-channel mixers I'd ever consider buying are the ttm-56s and the 05proIV. And while you can mix with them, that's not what they were made for.

    There was a review of two channel mixers on djtechtools main page about a year ago. The prices and availability are likely to have changed...but many (most?) of the models are still available new or gently used:

    Denon X1600, NI X1 Mk1 & Mk2, MF Twister
