thats a big price difference man. for like 50 you can get somethign that will just about do the job but for 200 you could probably find some pioneer rip off from behringer sp?

Don't buy a behringer, the build quality is really poor meaning that you'll need to replace it again in 18 months or less...

Buy yourself the best Vestax you can afford, it'll last you a lifetime and will have re-sale valuse if you decide to upgrade, unlike behringer which will be dead as a dodo

Buy something secondhand from Vestax/Technics/Stanton rather than new from Behringer.

Get a sturdy two channel mixer with lo, mid and hi equaliser knobs.

mine is well over two years old and nothing has gone wrong with it yet...

but then again these guys have probably been mixing a lot longer than me, so listen to them :p

It's not bad - but this is a mobile mixer intended for your mobile "weddings birthdays and bar mitzvah" style DJ, so it's got 4 channels, mic input, sound effects, all kinds of features crammed in, so there's a lot on there you're not gonna need...

For the same price you can get the VMC 185 XL....

3 Channels, much cleaner and more user friendly layout, and designed for the type of DJ'ing you want to do...

I've had one of these for the past 4 years or so
http://www.htfr.com/more-info/MR25393 which is really designed for scratching, but does me OK... I got it cheap 2nd hand...

I'd say the best one for you would be this:
http://www.htfr.com/more-info/MR241825 2 channels, versatile 3 band EQ on each channel, great build quality and at a good price

Hope this helps!

I recomend the kam kcm450, its only 2 channel but it got built in dsp effect an stuff, an its a stirdy as fuck mixer, I've ragged the thing about over the past year an a half an its still workin fine.

£175 from htfr - http://www.htfr.com/more-info/MR171422

I've the first version this is the mrk2. But looks very similar it seems you get a better crossfader now, so its defo worth buying

are gemini mixers any good? i used a PSO-2 (or something similar) at a party a couple of months back, it seemed pretty solid but i didnt get a chance to give it a good going over.
