    Imo with a mixer you never want to make a step backwards with equipmen because you'll hinder you progress. Save up a little more dosh and buy this for £140, it'll be so worth it and you'll have so much more to play with.

    i had a look at that in your thread, but its a bit excessive for me, and way out of my price range unfortunatly. looks like a nice mixer tho

    that dm1002 looks like a beast, and havent found a bad review yet, and its in my price range. is the crossfader replaceable on it tho, it doesnt look like it and couldnt find any info on if it was or not

    Yeah it i. You just have to remove the entire faceplate to do it.
    to be honest my x fader has lasted for 6 years so you wont be replacing it any time soon.
