    2 Channel mixer with XLR in/out?

    Been lurking for a while, this is my first post. I'm looking for a basic
    2 channel mixer for my turntables that has XLR out, and if possible
    an XLR in for the mic. (not required) All the ones I'm looking at have
    Line and RCA only. I want to be able to cue the next song on a album.
    This is for vinyl night, so no mixing/scratching. Thanks.....

    Remember that you can convert TRS (balanced 1/4") to XLR with an adapter and there's no difference; they're both balanced.

    The Pioneer DJM-250MK2 seems to fit the bill - but the mic is unbalanced.



    I didn't look hard for others, TBH.

    I have that one pulled up on zZsounds as I type. I would have pulled the trigger,
    but was hoping for for a XLR mic input. Could just get a different cable for the
    mic receiver, and run it unbalanced. If there's no better option, I guess this is
    it?

    Alright, so this Wednesday I'll be the proud owner of a new DJM-250MK2!
    Just in time, my gig is Thursday. Thanks much for the confirmation!

    It wasn't that, I had already placed the order hoping it
    would ship today. They were both pretty close, and
    well Guitar Center had a price drop on the Pioneer.
    zZsounds matched it.

    I actually liked that the Xone had the XLR mic input!

    I guess I jumped the gun, all I need is a 1/4" short
    patch cord.

    FWIW, many would say that the Xone 23 would be a better mixer... I'd get it over the DJM250MK2. Why? The Xone 23 can run 4 sound sources at once (1 line, 1 phono per side). It can be expanded with an effects processor (using the FX sends and returns), and is has the best filter.

    All the mixers mentioned are pretty good. But surprised Ecler was not mentioned, the Nuo 3.0 has everything you've asked for and the third (Mic) channel is a full fledged channel so if one of your other channels breaks you aren't out of business. The Ecler 2.0 also really nice, with a balaned 1/4 inch mic input. I have a Nuo 2 which I have had for over 10 years, actually it's on permanent loan now to one of my old party throwing buds, he loves it too and I have another Ecler I use at home. All Eclers have the same fantastic EQ's.. every DJ who's played on my Eclers have come to love them.

    Well I got the Pioneer that was first suggested, and it is a fine piece
    of equipment! Not saying the others aren't, but with a XLR/Unbalanced
    transformer, (just a Shure SM-48) sounds pretty good! Working out
    well for vinyl nights. Thanks!
