    92 has four-band EQ.

    Perhaps a demo will help you decide...

    I chose a 92 over a Pioneer because I don't see it as 'old' technology. More like good sounding analogue technology that doesn't go out of date. Digital stuff always has the next 'thing' round the corner. However, the FX might be pretty good on the PX5 if the DB4 is anything to go by...

    Default mid-low band is useless

    you don't usually move the mid-low knob while mixing.

    Not sure how you're mixing, but I use the mid low all the time for blending

    I use all four, depending on genre/blend.

    I'm in the same boat with my choices. The included audio interface for Traktor and my D2's would be great on the PX5. Only 1 send and return, for a delay pedal and no full EQ on the return channel. Unlike the 92 which has a great slider and full band EQ for the effects sends.

    Is it me or on the PX5, you can send the onboard FX to the send, the have a channel signal with the fx send and return up with the channel fader down to just have the full effects signal through like the 92?

    92 all the way. Only one filter on the PX is the one missing part that kills it for me. 92, DB4 and 4D are all equipt with it and their new flagship is simply missing a mighty tool.
