Very good mixer!

Pioneer DJM-500Published on 04/12/13 at 03:36
Yes, it can be rack-mounted, with the mod.

RCA, 1/4" jack and XLR connectors

4 channels, very practical

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).

USE

Very easy to use

SOUND

Transparent sound.

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...…

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).

OVERALL OPINION

I've used it frequently for quite some time.

I have lots of other models (freevox, pioneer, power france, ecler, soundcraft...)

Do not buy it

Pioneer DJM-500Published on 12/25/12 at 01:46
yes

UTILIZATION

faders go hard , great rustling background

SOUNDS

something very strange happens mixers Pioneer ...

not the first time I see that change their behavior as obsolete.

when are we going well, but as time passes, everything sounds worse.

It has high stinging and tiring to the ear, large distortions under 0 dB

OVERALL OPINION

do not buy this...old past time

Is it rack mountable? I don't think so

USE

Is it easy to make settings? It's like any other mixer, with some faders, some knobs and that's it ^^

Is it easy to access the main functions? Yes, if they are in the right mood. The electronics are of poor quality.

SOUND

Does the console sound transparent? Not really, it sounds terrible.

Is the EQ effective? It's only average I'd say.

Does it generate noise? Yes, lots

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you been using the product? I used it for 6 months in a PUB and was frankly disappointed

Did you try any other models before buying this one? Yes, Gemini, BST, Power, freevox, Equinox, Monacor, Soundcraft, A&H, and pioneer is the worst of...…

Which feature do you like the most / the least? I don't like anything about this mixer, the effects are nasty

How would you rate its value for money? It's too expensive for what it's worth.

Based on your experience, would you buy this product again? Never
