I have been using these mixers for over 4 years now and can honestly say I have never had any problems with them. The units are simple to set up and control with 3 input channels plus mic. The inputs are set up as phono / line for Ch1 & Ch3 and Line A / Line B for channel 2, meaning that you can have up to 4 input sources connected at any one time. Connections for input and output are via phono plugs whilst Mic input is via 6.3mm jack plug. The only criticism that I have of these units is the limited amount of LEDs on the monitor section. A few more LEDs would allow finer control over input and output levels, but you cant really argue about this when you look at the price! These are great little mixers - easy to use and set up, good input options, sound great, good price point, reliable (after 4 years of use) - what more could you ask for. Recommended as a entry level mixer. Gets 5 stars from me.
This was my first newly bought stand-alone mixer and I'd recommend it as an entry-level product. It's solidly built, looks nice and most of the faders & knobs are nice to use. It sounds good too.
A few problems with this though. One being that a couple of the EQ knobs are a good bit stiffer than the rest; as it's the bass knob on one channel and the mid on another this is pretty arbitrary and so is obviously a fault in assembly. The crossfader is also a little bit too sticky to do anything nimble with it, if I were into scratching this would probably bother me.
The main thing I don't like is the mixer's Cue-Master fader. The output in the headphones is way louder when the knob is turned to master than when to the cue. I don't know whether this is intentional or just poor calibration but it makes it difficult to get a good picture of what's going on through your headphones. Not knowing where to set the knob for a 50/50 split means you don't know where to set it if you want to know what the mix will sound like when you push the fader of the cued channel up to max.
Great product, easy to set up, easy to use which is a bonus as buying/using Dj equipment is new to me. Arrived next day as promised. The staff member I spoke to was very helpful & I would recommend this company/website to everyone.
