    I know there are so many threads about mixers however I couldn't find one specific to my needs

    Sooo I would like a mixer that:

    Has 4 channels
    Has No effects
    High Quality make
    Reliable crossfade
    Under £150 2nd Hand
    The eqs actually cut properly not just -12db

    Any suggestions would be most welcome!

    Safe Peeps.

    Look at the Beat 4 by JBsystems. It's a budget mixer, but I've heard it's decent, especially for the price. But remember that cheap + high quality doesn't go together very well...

    If you find a high end 4 channel mixer for under 150 secondhand, you'd be lucky for it still to have some of it's quality left I suppose...
    I'd wait for some 2nd opinions though, I don't know all about UK's second hand market, being from Belgium.

    In the world of DJ mixers, 9 out of 10 times it's a "you get what you pay for" market. I would suggest hitting up ebay to grab a second hand mixer, it'll last longer than a new offbrand one IMO.

    i got an ecler nuo 4 for 330, i know that's a lot more than you plan on paying, but you won't have to buy another mixer again, if you spend 150 you'll be looking for a replacement in a year

    You sure I couldn't get a second hand one for £150? If the RRP is £500 for your average good mixer.

    Has anyone got any links to ideas?

    You might get lucky if you trawl the second hand sites long enough; Gumtree, preloved and ebay. Youre gonna have to be really patient, or really lucky to find an ecler/a&h for that price though. It took me about half a year to find my nuo3.0 for £300 on ebay.

    Hop on gumtree and hope theres someone selling one who doesn't know its real value. Ive grabbed a few sneaky bargains that way.
