    Default Djm 250 and efx 1000

    So i did search but couldn't find an answer.
    I'm thinking about buying a djm 250 and later a efx 1000 but my concern is if I can connect them both (probably the answer is through the aux) and how will be the sound quality.
    I want to play at clubs and I want to be able to bring my set-up to there so I really need sound quality on loud enviromnents.

    So how will be the sound quality and how should I connect them?
    (Sorry for begginer questions)

    for the EFX-1000 to work as intended your mixer would need to have send/return connections which the DJM-250 does not have.

    DJM250 > RCA cable > EFX 1000 > RCA cable > Club mixer

    Sound quality will be fine as long as you have a decent sound card/CDJs. You'll only be able to apply FX to the Master channel though.

    I have a pair of pioneer Cdj 800 Mk1.
    Could I use the djm 250 to be the mixer of the club? (a small club obviously, lets imagine for 500 people).

    Yes. The sound quality of the 250 is effectively the same as the high end Pioneer mixers.

    The DJM250 is NOT EVEN CLOSE to the same sound quality of the 800 / 900 / 2000.

    Skip the EFX-1000 & DJM250 and just get a better mixer with effects built in, such as the DJM800 or 900nexus.

    Looks like you're the one with a Z2, not the one with a DJM 250 and 900.

    The DJM 250 sound quality as a mixer is perfectly fine and not noticeably different from the 900. There are of course no FX on it.

    I do have a 900nexus, and have heard the 250 in a club setting. There is no comparison.

    Well I have both mixers set up right in front of me with the same song playing through both and can't hear the slightest difference through my HD 25s. Any club sound system will be of much lower quality than a decent pair of monitoring headphones..
