The Numark C1 is a rackable 3 channel mixer and at this price, this would be my first choice of a rackable mixer if I was starting all over. It is very affordable and has all of the high end features any DJ can appreciate. This was more expensive when it first came out but it has been reduced to around 100 dollars in most popular stores. There are two switchable phone/line inputs and a mic input that lets you connect this mixer to pretty much any other piece of gear the DJ has in their set up.
This mixer had all of the essentials that I needed and that was the reason that I chose to use it. I used it for almost a year and it never gave me any issues. I didn’t even have to take it off the rack that I had it on because the whole rack was portable. The sound that comes out of this mixer is also very clean and the 5 band EQ is a huge upgrade when considering other models in this price range only have a 2 band or 3 band EQ. If you ever have any issues with the cross fader you can easily replace it and put a new one on quickly and easily.
The stereo output for headphones on this mixer is very loud and clean. It is perfect to get your mixing under control. There are no effects on this mixer, and I actually expected there to be some with everything else that it has.
The XLR and RCA audio connections you can pretty much run anything in and out of this mixer. I highly recommend this mixer to anyone who has a rack because you pretty much will not want to have this mixer unless you want to rack it because it is large and made for a gig rack.
