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.
The rotary kbobs worry me, I like a nice push up fade in and push down fade out... seems a lot more natural and easy to control than twisting two knobs at the same time (though I do do freq swaps on the eqs...)

Xone:92 has an adjustable fader doesn't it?

As does the Xone:32!
The 32 fader is still utter pap for scratching, dunno why they bothered with curve adjust.
Apparently it's all solved on the newer ones but I don't know anyone that has used a Xone 92 so who knows.

Sound quality is great on A&Hs but if you can't do the set you want then no amount of sound quality can fix it.

For the low budget people like myself The Numark DM1 gets my vote, it has a reasonable cross fade adjust, doesn't sound too bad and has USB outs and ins as well as the normal ones.
Used an Allen & Heath ( at a free party surprisingly) very nice, Pioneer is nice too. Vestax are OK, but sound a bit 'thin' not such a warm sound, Technics are great for crabbing, but hell if I had the money probblay a Pioneer.

I would say that there is one critcial feature I'd like to see on mixers...taht is pre fade levels for each channel..that Rane one don't have that...quite useful.

ive got the vestax pcv275 and i think its worth the money. you really have to get hands on with both though and see which one you prefer that way
recently sold my pcv275 to get a xone32. really glad i made that decision too. if your still after a mixer try pick up a second hand one of these :2thumbs:

depends whether you scratch or not dunnit.

ive got a tascam xs8 which is nice, but some times the fader curves are still a bit steep on scratch mixers for really smooth mixes (even with the adjustment)

i would like to have a go with rotarys tbh for some nice rolling liquid mixes :)

but i agree it would be very limiting

Allen & Heath is a great place to start. I got myself a Xone:02 professional battle mixer, some key features are:

-The EQ is all faders instead of knobs
-It has a proper power supply, that does not humm out your speakers
-It has XLR outputs so you can actually hook it up to a proper amp/power supply
-it has the fully adjustable fader curves.
-you can replace faders with Penny & Giles

Ecler Nuo5, haven't got one but they're a perfect hybrid between install style and an FXunit mixer also they have the Eternal xfader which is wicked for scratching. i've used this mixer loads and they're well worth the money
