    Depends on what you wanna do with it though. If you more than two channels, and used mainly for mixes and stuff, then the Allen & Heath, Pioneer and Tascam mixers are quality. However if you wanna go a bit scratchy, the Technics DMC mixer, or Stanton and Vestax do good turntablist mixers. At the end of the day, its what you use it for and what you're comfortable with. Personally, I have a Technics DMC Champoinship mixer, and used a Stanton before that.

    btw there is a mod you can do to the A&H Xone 62 to give it a sharp cf curve for scratching. All you have to do is remove a resistor :)

    Yes, they do. As does the 62. But the cf curve on the 32 and 62 is still pants for scratching. Dunno how good the 92 is tho

    Have you looked at the Vestax PCV275 3 channel mixer? Its a good mixer for the money (if you don't want to scratch), and I doubt you'll find a Xone for 250 quid.

    yeah i was lookin at the pcv275(vestax) and also considered the djm 500 pioneer, its a lot more money but a couple of friends said they'd all pitch in, how the djm 500 sound? its either that or vestax pcv275

    buy that! its he best for its price and comes with a lifetime guarantee, these mixers are gold trust me and the sound quality is really good. and they are good fro scratching, cheaper then those overpriced allen and heath bs mixers.

    yes definatly a perfect all around mixer except for those ones with the rotary knobs. i dunno about those, i dont like anything thats not already familar. I actually even prefer the tm56's or whatever. straight forward and easy, perfect for events cuz then djs arent trippin on tryin to figure out the mixer and focusing on mixing.
