    alright forum heads i know this topic has been covered left right and centre but i feel we've hit new financial times and some products are no longer available etc.

    basically its my 21st soon and im looking to get a new mixer, as im currently on a 70pound mixer from maplin that was bought about 7 years ago so u can imagine that its on its very last legs.

    im not fussed about any features except it needs at least 3 channels and have pretty good eqs. id prefer a new bit of kit as it seems a bit pointless to get a used bit of kit for my birthday. i was looking at vestaxs as i have friends who have them that speak the world of them as well as hearing a few of you on the forum saying theyre tidy mixers. they seem slightly out of my price range so was wondering if anyone could recommend discount retailers or just similar brands??

    i heard behringers are useless but was pleasently surprised when i mixed on a djx700 thats about 1-2 years old and found it fairly smooth and responsive, so opinions on this would also be appreciated.

    thanks in advance guys

    oh wicked so it sounds like its pretty sturdy then... i think itl end up being either this mixer or a vestax 185xl or whatever theyre called, although i cant seem to find a vesatx anywhere think they must of been discontinued. anyone know where they're available?

    I got the Vestax 185xl 3 channel before my current mixer as i heard they were good build quality etc.. but it was a heap of shit, 2 out of 3 channels broke and a couple eq nobs aswell, and this is technical problems not me snapping them etc. Dont recommend.. Probably why you can't find it anymore it may have been discontinued
