Set-up: Crown 802 Amp, Sonic Maximizer BBE 882i, Behringer EQ, Stanton Dual CD Player, and Computer Laptop. This Numark is a good board to start out with. The only problems I have experianced being a "back-in-the-game" professional DJ is that I don't really care for the cue buttons on the bottoms of the volume slides for the headphones. Those will be a pain for some of you. Also the integrated EQ is nice to look at, but it is not dependable. I found that out last week when I was tweaking adjusting it and the low Hz shorted out and scared people half to death in the bar. I would recommend considering a rackable EQ if you are going to use this. Other than that, this is a good mix board. I am satisfied with it; for the money. Once you get into the business you will upgrade later. The better boards are up in the thousands so go with it, it will get the job done. 2 Microphone inputs also work good.
If you are looking for a quailty mixer with plenty of inputs and outputs, this is the one! It is really quiet, almost noiseless. The mic has a dual XLR/1/4 in put which is really cool. I like this DM mixer over the other ones because it is straight forward.
This mixer has very smooth fades, a nice weight, and looks slick in a rig. The downside is that the knobs are a little flimsy for the EQ. Granted, I work the EQ's pretty good, but they tend to pop off at the most inopportune times. I love the sound. No line bleeds that I have heard. The talkover is pretty much useless. Might as well just turn down your line and speak. I would love to see better lighting on the board, although the optional light (sold seperately)is good. Overall a great board for the price I paid. Had I not been more strapped, I would have grabbed a Pioneer. Recommended for mobile rigs.
ive had this mixer for about 7 months now and its been great I still remember the first time I turned it on and great clear sound came out I was amazed but I had some troble with the knobs are too tight right now I want something with more functions like effects and sampler's if you are just looking for str8t foward mixer this is the one.
I've had this mixer for a few years to play with as a hobbyist DJ. It's nice to have all the inputs. You can hook up a couple turntables, your iPod, and a laptop.. etc. You can use either 1/4" mic input or XLR without an adaptor. It also has balanced XLR outputs. The cross-fader works great. Good action, no bleed that I can hear. The plastic knobs have popped off a few times on the fader and EQ, but they slide back on and I haven't lost any yet. Not a big problem. The cue fader is also very handy for previewing your mix. The LED level lights are very bright and easy to use to get your levels right.This is my first mixer, and I preferred it over my fancy Korg with effects and sampling until the EQ died. The Numark sounded better, and the fewer frills led to better mixes. Unfortunately, the EQ gave up the ghost after three years. I'm not sure if that's atypical. You can turn off the EQ so it's still a useful mixer when that component dies. The only other downside I can see is it's very large. It takes up a lot of table space.Overall, I recommend this mixer to beginners who want more channels. It's worked out great for me.
This Mixer really isn't 'ideal' for Hip Hop style DJing at all. It makes a good preamp for your home or if you are working on hybrid projects like myself that require turntablism/keyboards/drum machines/computers then this is an 'ok' choice.I have 3 computers, a drum machine and a keyboard sampler module hooked up to it right now. If you have as much invested into this stuff as I do you probably need or know you need a 'real' multi-tracking mixer like a Mackie for your recording and a seperate mixer for you turntables.The the cross-fader is assignable to any of the 4 input channels which also have a two way switch to increase your number of inputs to 8. These switching capabilities are probably not something you would want to fool with all the time. They are small switches on the back panel. So, if you are a sadistic, mobile DJ that insists on using turntables and CD's for your live gigs instead of something practical like Serato or Torq then this will work easily for you. Having said that, all the little "Battle Mixers" have Line/Phono switching on the 2 main channels.There is no way to enable/defeat band passes on any channel which is a nice feature that every DJing mixer seems to have these days. There are no effects or anything like that either. Just straightforward mixing.I have not had any of the problems with the EQ that other people seem to have had. It almost makes me wonder if they forgot/accidentally pushed the ON/Defeat button for the EQ.If you need a bunch of inputs in one box, this is your mixer.
The one & only problem is the fader is too loose.
I worked with this mixer for about three years, and didn't realize how bad it was until after I replaced it. Basically, the higher the master vol, the more hum, even if the only things connected are mixer, amp, speakers. 'Honky' sounding mids and harsh highs, no matter how the EQs are set. Right channel has dropped in and out since the unit was taken out of the box.
