    I have been putting together my setup for the last 3 months. So far I have:
    2 Technics SL1210MK2's
    Serato SL3
    I need a mixer and am looking in the $400-$500 range.
    I'm leaning towards the Pioneer DJM-400, I don't want to blow my whole wad on a super advanced mixer ATM since I'm somewhat of a beginner. I learned on my friend's setup:
    2 Vestax tables, vestax scratch mixer, torq mp3/vinyl interface.
    I wanted to stick with the feel of vinyl and still be able to use my mp3/wav's to mix which is why I have pieced my setup together like this..
    Any input on the DJM-400 or perhaps another suggestion?

    Any advice those with experience can offer would be greatly appreciated!

    I have a djm 400, it's great but I want to get a new one with at least 3 channels,

    if you're only interested on mixing with two decks I'd definetly recommend it,

    I'd sell you mine cheaper than a new one but the shipping from Canada is probably pretty expensive

    Ya it'll be 2 channels for a while I'd assume. Still in the learning process so 3 tables sounds like a bit much. Resale value on the DJM400's seem to hold pretty strong so I could always sell it and upgrade when I'm ready. Keep them coming and thanks for the quick response Marky
