    xone 22 in that price range (ish)
    haven't used but reckon it will be better than unmark denon or behringer

    I'd say it's between the Behringer and this one...

    Performance wise they're gonna be very similar at the same price. Personally I'd choose it on looks but then I'm a bit shallow like that. Plus the reloop has three channels just in case...

    behringher dont have a very good rep, sound quality is a bit shoddy..i know i have one: but for a first time mixer they are solid and do the job well

    frankly if you get seriously into your djing i suspect you will want to upgrade anyway (i want a new mixer) so i suggest just make sure you have one with low mid and high trims, and for a decent price, the brand is probably immaterial

    For around the £200 mark I would suggest trying to get a used Pioneer DJM-500 on ebay, I got a Behringer djx700 about a week ago even after reading all of the bad things about it, and what a mistake that was....

    Dont go for Behringer, and personally Im a fan of getting used equipment that is better quality, got my whole setup apart from headphones used as you get so much more for your money!

    Xone 22.

    My mate just sold his for £180, boxed like new.

    IMO, with mixers you really do pay for what you get. Had a shoddy Numark mixer for ages and when I decided to get myself a pioneer the difference was unbelievable.

    If your keen, save your pennies, itll be worth it in the long run 100%

    The thing you have to think is do you want to pay the extra 100 or so quid for a better bit of kit, or pay 100 less, then either have to replace it, or buy a better bit of kit.
    Then think Allen and Heath vs Behringer
    There is only 1 choice in my mind
    Dont be a dingbat
