    My old mixer Numark DXM 09, has died and with around £150 to spend I'm now looking for a new toy. Anyone recomend anything they have used/own that has been really good for around £150 or under?

    I'm thinking maybe a Gemini PS626 EFX or USB version

    Any help?

    Are you looking for a specific number of channels?

    cheers for all the suggestions. I get put off by ebay because you never know what your getting really. Bought my orginal decks and mixer form there, the decks i still use till today but the mixer was completely fucked from the start. I am tempted to stretch to that vestax for £200 though.

    Has anyone experienced this Gemini PS626? for the price it looks quite decent.

    also any thoughts on a gemini ps-04

    Get one of the Vestax reccomended here mate - they're all really good quality, and made to last... If you go for another Gemini then you'll end up having to replace it in 12 to 18 months when the faders, knobs and switches are so worn they stop working...

    Get the Vestax and you'll still be sitting pretty in years to come, mines over 8 years old and works perfectly...

    Basically Vestax is a quality brand name, Vestax isn't - you'll often see proffesionals using vestax products (particularly scratch DJ's) but I can't think of one case where I've seen a pro choose gemini...
