The EQ is all right. It was more than enough back then and even today.
Nice but limited effects section (although it's more than enough).
Very easy to use
To get a quality and clear sound, you must ALSO consider replacing the power and filter capacitors.
Use quality capacitors and you'll be surprised!!!
The same applies to the faders. Clean them to avoid having noises and crackling.
All electronics age with time and the capacitors age pretty badly.
Personally, after some modifications, my djm 500 produces no noise, no crackles and it sounds perfect (I also have the djm 600, djm 400, ecler nuo 5, power france pmp 403, freevox dj club, and american audio q2422...)
There are mixers that age better than others (depending on how much you use them and how you store them).
I've used it frequently for quite some time.
I have lots of other models (freevox, pioneer, power france, ecler, soundcraft...)
Im a very satisfield customer,i really enjoy this set up with the djm and cmx 3000.But ive had a couple of bugs in my board. Such as the beat counter button not fuctioning on time or skipping and the video you get with it is pretty cheesey. But warrenties are wonderfull..So I m satisfied even though its my first.
Price paid: $1000
Like i said cheesey video.
I belive its pretty good its got some nice features (BPM Synch) And relay play. But it kinda makes it too easy....
This thing wont leave my side till i get something like it with a sampler .
