This mixer is amazing ! I like the ergonomic faders and the ability to switch Xfader extremes to different channels.
Price paid: £421
Once you get past the "OMFG" of all the knobs and stuff, it is all pretty much common knowledge really. Layout is pretty well designed, all knobs are in the right places, ie Gain, EQ's then effects, then PFL switch. All main volume controls along with the PFL control is at the top of the mixer as well. Headphones socket is on the front panel of the mixer so the cable does not get in the way of your mixing.
Sound quality is much better than my Vestax, but it is my amp that lets me down (DANG NABBIT !) The mixer is designed for all genres' really, with the VCA XFader control for people that do all that turntablism stuff, but also has all the EQ's for people who just do general mixing. No effects unit on this one, but it does have an effects send and receive. The only problem I have found with it is the kill switches all go one way. I keep trying to flick the left kill switch to the left instead of the right
Damn good build quality, no gimmicky silver metallic paints or stupid stickers and such. Also does not have a mounting flange, cos not everyone needs it... comes seperately tho :P The little switches are made of plastic, and look like they may break if some pressure was applied, but better than the pathetic little kills on my old Vestax.
Well, it cost me £420 so it is closer to my heart than my blood is. Third mixer I have had, and have been working towards this mixer for 5 months since I started DJing, and now that I have it, I aint lookin at another mixer :] Pioneer ? PAH ! :P

kjata's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
we will return pa thousand times on the table that everyone knows ...
very simple config, handling almost instantaneous nice kill function to send heavy.
transparant to death, to the end of analog knobs, no breath even after 10 years of use, it was a gift from my father when I start mixing on k2.
I since its 10 or so, it has not aged a bit, do not flinch uses, but from now it serves me for my delivery man outside my studio.
jme remember the price of this one, but even if it was costing € 1,000 jtrouve ben ten years after its not too expensive.
I have a cross fader and parts that have never served me .... a lil box flight own right that must be ...
sorites XLR! excellent
Lane 4, 3 phono, parameterizable curve cross, cross, although this is not an "eternal" from ecler works really really well in scratch, I have really been bluffing, you can get absolutely all sequences without prob
2 channel equalizer precise kill, nice
no effect but one that I send function return a trove personal shit, you can cheat by putting on a return path and c is not bad
config super easy, lots of button when you have same quick snap of a kill switch for phono or line in a pack but being put through two fader byzarre c is at the beginning then sy is then found exellent has the ca end
ben it sounds, I have direct xlr plug on two active alesis mk2 and it sounds really good, has rejuvenated my monitor that is starting to old (but they will tjrs as well!)
otherwise the sound is clear and clean AC sends.
ca is the 3 months I used it in conjunction with a sh technics dj 1200, bin j have unplugged the technics (a shelf in her decor
j waiting to see how it hold out solidity level (ca I should go out not in evening)
por the time / happy
