    My old numark dxm has just packed in so im on the look for a new mixer!

    Ive been offered a pioneer djm 500 for 250quid in near mint condition!

    OR

    i have been offered a djm 600 in good condition for 320 but two of the volume faders have gone, but the lad whos selling owns a vinyl shop and he sed he would give the mixer a service and replace the volume faders for free!

    All about the Allen & Heaths. The only Pioneer I would consider would be the DJM800, and even then the Xone 92 is the same price near as dammit so I would choose that any day!

    If you shop on ebay you can get a second hand Xone 62 for around 400 usually
