    Beginner Help - CD Mixer with 2 x Phono Inputs

    Hi - New here and any help appreciated.

    Looking to start to DJ with vinyl, but my collection is limited. This will mean that at least for a while I will need to supplement by turntable with some CD's.

    I am wishing to buy a CD mixer with two phono inputs so that I can play both as seamlessly as possible.

    Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Thanks

    Well the basics first: what's your budget, and do you mean an all in one solution or separate CD players + mixer?

    Thanks for the response Manu. All in one ideally. Beginners budget really, but not something that I am going to want to upgrade in a few months. £200-500?

    That's a bit tight for a CD/all in one solution, I think you may be looking at the second hand market ie Ebay - if you're genuinely in London you may get a bit more lucky with local shops. Anyhow I would say something most likely to be like a Numark CDmix1 or 2 but be aware these are old units, be careful not to buy something that is ''spares and repairs'':

    Couple of examples:

    couple of Numark CDMix 2 from the same seller with good rep, price £100:

    All have 2x phono inputs at the back.

    You may want to skip the CD player and go controller with laptop. That will keep costs down... at first. You can also use a DVS once to get your TTs and still play your digital music.
