    I think it looks out of place cos its a cheap mixer but i have owned more expensive mixers that didnt feel as well made.

    Some would argue that cheap mixers have a shorter signal path and are cleaner sounding than expensive ones. I remember Reticuli doing an analysis of the Numark BlueDog mixer years ago along those lines.
    I've also seen performers from Eastern Europe turn up with bizarre cheap equipment and perform more professionally against more well equipped headliners.

    At the end of the day the best you can ever get from any mixer is to use it to its maximum abilties and use it like a instrument for your performance.
    Often its easier to get a better result from the simple things.


    btw: nice brew!

    That's absolute rubbish, the signal path in a dj mixer is short anyway so a few cemtimetres isn't going to make any difference, the main difference are the quality of the parts used.

    A short signal path doesn't mean the length of the path, it means going through less components. A simple mixer with fewer bells and whistles has a shorter signal path. Although simple doesn't alway mean cheap and there are also cheap mixer with a lot of (badly implemented) functions.

    I didn't have the heart to explain that design doesn't stop at the BOM. Because, absolute rubbish.
