DJ Mixer Help?!
March 21, 2011 at 3:19 am #23139
My husband and I currently have a Numark DMX01 2-channel mixer for our home use, but the right channel is not working right now. Would it be worth looking at getting it fixed? Or would you recommend replacing it?
I had a look around for something on e-Bay and saw a few good looking deals for the Numark DM900 Blue Dog. I haven’t been able to find out much of anything about it other than Liam from Prodigy uses it, lol.
Any thoughts, advice?
Thanks.March 21, 2011 at 5:18 am #37501
unless one of you are tech-savy then no. Cost of repair probably be about new or used price of a mixer. Though I’m not familiar with which Numark is better. I would look at what they got now and see which feature/price point best suits you. I’ve seen people use Numark and hold up. If you’re considering other brands, Stanton makes good mixers as well. After that, its stepping up to Vestax, Ecler, Pioneer and beyond.March 21, 2011 at 9:18 am #37502
Yeh, that’s about what the husby figured regarding the cost of getting it fixed. We got it second-hand anyhow….
As regards to the Blue Dog, I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with it. The mixer doesn’t necessarily have to be a Numark, just working, lol. I have actually used a cheap little Gemini mixer that I absolutely loved, and I’ve also used a top-of-the-line Pioneer that I hated. It’s mostly for home use right now, so we’re not necessarily looking for anything fancy, just to get the job done but maybe with a little extra.March 21, 2011 at 1:10 pm #37503
I’m partial to Vestax products. Great quality equipment that doesn’t break the bank imho.March 21, 2011 at 8:27 pm #37504
I should mention i have a Stanton SK Six 2 channel mixer I’m willing to sell. It did me well for 5-6 years. Last time I used it beforehand, I replaced the crossfader with a much better fader called the Focus Fader by Stanton. If interested, I got pictures and probably google more info on it as well.March 22, 2011 at 11:26 pm #37505

Very right bro, i have a Vestax 275 with 3 channels and i have it for 4 years and still in excellent condition
They are great for home use..April 19, 2011 at 2:47 am #37508
I’m bought Numark mostly. My next mixer / turntable will not be a Numark brand. They are good for starter equipment. Not too reliable though.April 23, 2011 at 3:50 am #37509
allen and heath for the win!!! amazing amazing mixers….September 7, 2011 at 2:51 pm #37510
So much down to personal preference and the type of music you play. I’m currently running a Numark PPD01. It’s great for me as the crossfader is pretty decent quality and there’s a bunch of effects on there. Plus, it’s digital so actually sounds pretty crisp.
But, I’ve had Gemini and Vestax in the past and have been impressed by both, in different ways. I think it’s more a question of you get what you pay for. I’d definitely recommend Vestax, though, if I had to go with one of the three brands I’ve used.
