    I leaning toward the Behringer VMX300 DJ Mixer w/ BPM, Kills, & Effects because it's within my price range. any opinions/advice?

    I'm a vestax man but I've always steered clear of Behringer. Not sure why though, i heard the sound quality aint that good.

    I used kill switches when I first got it with my mixer, now i NEVER user it. As far as beherenger goes, that is true the BPM counter doesnt go over 160, i bought the djx700. nice board! but really dont worry about the BPM counter at all...

    I used to live and die by the Pioneer DJM-600/500...but since I splurged and picked myself up an Allen & Heath Xone:62 and a Kaos Pad, I will never go back :)

    Here is the Xone:62
    http://www.allen-heath.com/xone62.asp

    Also of note, the new A&H Xone:92...which is also fly as hell lookin. My only beef with it is that the channel faders are not P&G, but it looks really clean. Nearly everything on it lights up, which is useful as hell in dark environment. Having two filter channels is also very very cool :)

    Check it:

    behringer good for the price imo, but the effects sound like shit compared to good ones. kills work for techno but not dnb i rekon and the eqs aint nothing to an allen & heath. a new one i havent senn metioned on hear is the denon dnx1500 which seems pretty much like a pioneer but you can hook it up with your comp ,by usb ,and download effects n stuff.i aint used one but they look sweet as you can see.also pretty expensive so start saving.

    yeah I discovered on weekend that kill-switches are great to fuck with randomly when doing quick crossfader cuts, like dropping the treble out when you cut over to a tune for one beat etc.
    fun. :bounce:
    carry on ...

    i reckon kills are sweet, its just a matter of finding a mixer with kills, which dont produce that "click" when flicking them fast, which is the case with most mixers. well..cheap ones at least..
