    Default Buying my first controller. Can used some experienced help :)

    Hey guys,

    I'm just getting into DJing and want to buy my first controller.
    Since I just want to figure out if I'll like it and don't have any ambitions of playing clubs anytime soon, I figured an all-in-one controller would probably be best to start with. The amount I'm willing to spend is 300 max.. I use a Windows7 64bit desktop PC, since I don't have a laptop.

    After some research I found these 5 controllers:

    - Vestax Typhoon 179 http://www.vestaxeurope.com/products...s&cid=2&pid=15

    - Numark Mixtrack Pro 2 210 http://www.numark.com/product/mixtrack-pro-ii

    - Reloop Mixage Interface Edition MK2 MIDI controller 189 http://www.reloop.com/reloop-mixage-ie-mk2

    - Reloop BeatMix MIDI-Controller for Virtual DJ 199 http://www.reloop.com/reloop-beatmix

    - Denon DJ MC2000 DJ MIDI controller 289 http://www.dm-pro.eu/en/denondj/Prod...00DJController

    A friend of mine recommended the Denon.

    Do you guys know if any of them really stand out? Or is there a way-better one that's a little bit more expensive?

    All the help/experience is appreciated!

    I have Mixtrack Pro I and its brilliant for its price. Definitely the best in its price range, if you want to spend more maybe the s2 or a VCI/s4 maybe

    The Traktor S2/S4 are out of my price range since it's limited to 300.

    A friend of mine recommended the Denon MC2000 over the Mixtrack Pro 2, do you know anything about that?

    And would the Vestax VCI-100 be better than the Denon MC2000?

    Hey! I'd really go for the Mixtrack Pro II. It's one of the cheapest,it has good controls, and very high quality, easy to understand layout. Extremely durable controller!
