    Surely its whatever you find easier to scratch on, regardless of which is the better mixer.

    For scratching you need a very sharp Crossfader curve and it must be smooth and light. the DJM-800 and Xone 92 faders are the don so get a feel on one of those if you can and make your mind from there.

    Just looked at both mixers but i'd say the Numark will be better. Adjust the CF Slope on the front all the way clockwise if you havent already (y)

    Then happy scratching!

    but if your talkin turntablism, then a 2 channel mixer is what you need. 3 channel will be a ball ache.

    if your talkin mixin with a bit of scratchin. stick to ya newmark.
