Well I am planning, in a few months to buy myself a set for bedroom DJing and perhaps some friends' little parties.
I have been doing research for almost 2 years now on equipment, theory, and techniques, but I've never touched equipment (until very very recently when I went to my local music shop and played a bit nervously with the equipment).
I am definitely getting a pair of these:
I am planning to add an external hard drive (linked to both players using D-Sync) or two good sized jump drives on each (8/16 gig or so..)
Now the only thing I don't know what to get for..is the mixer. Which is a shame because its the most critical part of the setup. I cannot seem to pick..I don't want to go horrible quality cheap (apparently Behringer)..nor do I want to spend an incredible amount (ie: Xone/Rane) ..Just decent. I dont want to be replacing my stuff every year..
A pair of those Players already cost me about 1k CAD...I don't want to pass 1.5K CAD..
So what mixer should I be getting? I cannot decide whether I really need 3 or 4 channels, or if I'd need FX on them or samplers. The players already have FX and I don't think I'd use a sampler much tbh..
I've been racking my inexperienced and ignorant brains for a long time..until I made this thread now.
Thanks for the help
