IanLightsOut's review"A mainstay in the DJ realm"

Pioneer DJM-600
The mixer is not rackable without modifications. The main inputs are RCA, and outputs are RCA and XLR. It has analog connections and 4 channels, each with 2 inputs for phono and line. The eq is not parametric and simply has separate knobs for bass, mid, and treble. There is an integrated effects section, but it does not support automation. Synchronization is not supported on this model.

UTILIZATION

Functions are very easily accessible, and great fun to use once the user is accustomed to the unit. Install is very easy, and connection is straightforward. The manual is clear and does not leave out any important information about running the mixer.

SOUNDS

The sound quality is perfect without generating hiss or distortion. The sound of the mixer and effects are great, although sound a little dated now that we are in 2010. EQ's are great and still function very well after all these years.

OVERALL OPINION

The thing I like most about this mixer is the reliability, layout and use, and standardization. In clubs, this mixer or an updated version of this mixer is pretty much all you will see, so as a DJ, it makes it easier to play in strange places when you are familiar with the equipment. The mixer can be purchased for a relatively small amount of money as new models and updates have since been released. The sound is precise and perfect, with the only wear and tear on the mixer in my experience being the faders wearing out after many years of normal use (or a few years of rough use). Faders are inexpensive to replace and hardly a detractor as a purchase point. Before I had this mixer, I owned Numark mixers, which were good for starters, but as I became more experienced I wanted more options as well as a more professional feel. Moving up to this mixer was ideal because it did not involve a large financial investment, but the benefits were a large step up from the previously used Numark Models.

Pioneer DJM-600
IT FEATURES EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO PRODUCE QUALITY MIXES.3 OPTIONS ON THE CROSS FADER CURVE WHICH IS GREAT FOR SCRATCHING.AND THE SAMPLING AND RECORDING FEATURES ARE SIMPLE TO USE TO.

Price paid

£650

UTILIZATION

THIS IS AN EASY MIXER TO MASTER,YOU DONT REALLY NEED TO READ UP ON HOW TO USE ALL THE FEATURES AND SAMPLES,SIMPLY PLUG AND PLAY!THE SPLIT CUE IS EXCELLENT,IT ACTUALLY SPLITS LEFT AND RIGHT INPUT AS IT SHOULD DO IN EACH EAR OF THE HEADPHONES,NOT LIKE THE DJM300 WHERE IT MIXES BOTH INPUTS IN BOTH EARS.THE ONLY DOWNSIDE TO THIS MIXER IS WHERE THEY HAVE PUT THE HEADPHONE SOCKET,IT DOES GET IN THE WAY SOMETIMES AND IS PRONE TO YOU KNOCKING IT,IN MY OPPINION IT SHOUD HAVE BEEN MOUNTED ON THE VERY FRONT AND NOT COMING OUT THE TOP OF THE MIXER,WHERE ALL THE NOBS ARE.

THIS FEELS AND LOOKS LIKE A QUALITY MIXER.SO FAR IVE HAD NO TROUBLES AND IVE NOT HEARD OF ANY TROUBLES YET ON THIS MODEL.MOST OF THE CLUBS IVE PLAYED IN HAVE THIS MIXER,SO THAT ALONE SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.

SOUNDS

SOUND QUALITY IS GOOD,I FIND THE EQ VERY SENSATIVE,THE SMALLEST TWEAK ON ANY OF THE HIGHS MIDS OR LOWS MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE.

OVERALL OPINION

I LOVE THIS MIXER BECAUSE OF HOW IT LOOKS AND THE WOW FACTOR WHEN A FRIEND USES IT.UNLESS YOU HAVE A TOP OF THE RANGE ALLEN AND HEATH I DONT THINK YOU CAN BEAT THIS,ESPECIALLY IF YOU MIX HOUSE AND TRANCE.

Pioneer DJM-600
The features are amazing, I don't think they could have included much more. However, Being able to have more than one sample would have been nice, or being able to assign your sample to a channel and then be able to adjust the EQ on it......

Price paid

$850 usd

UTILIZATION

The interface is very easy to use and quick to pick up. The manual explains most things however, this is not for a begainner

The DJM600 is amazingly robust, I have used it manytimes and have not had any problems.

SOUNDS

The sound is quite decent, however, a broaded EQ would have been nice.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall I love this machine. I would reccommend it to any Serious DJ.... It is also good for use in Clubs or at Gigs.......

Pioneer DJM-600
Very well ...

UTILIZATION

Very well ...

SOUNDS

Good, but unless my table Ecler Evo4

OVERALL OPINION

Bought used there are about 1 year old, I know not the date of purchase, or in how many hands it has passed, but everything works as the first day she aged rather well!

Plus, the fact that this is a sustainable table, the evidence ...
Least, next to the master channel 4, what bullshit !! I removed the button to lower the risk of accidents!

Pioneer DJM-600
Is rack?

Not original.

What is the type of connection (RCA Jack, XLR ...)?

RCA inputs as well as RCA and XLR master.

Before this I had a table behringer DJX 700 (big mistake!)

UTILIZATION

The general configuration is it simple?

Yes.

The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

It's going.

The usual functions are they easily accessible?

Yes

SOUNDS

The console is transparent?

Yes.

Introduces it's breath?

No.

The equalizer is effective? ...

It is great compared to the behringer has to be better but more expensive.

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it?

One day and already hooked!

What is so special that you love the most, least?

The more that is EQs, effects and faders that are fairly linear.

(On the behringer sound starts at 7 ...)

The less that is to be careful not to manipulate the switches of the crossfader

otherwise it cracks but you really have to run both!

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

A behringer DJX 700 a table low cost with good effects and rotten pieces

fragile!

How would you rate the quality / price?

Excellent.

With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Yes it 's on!

Pioneer DJM-600
connection: we dream, not even a master XLR, so big loss in level and quality, and already it's not the sound ca ... Although its role is not used to making speeches, the microphones to allow designated

UTILIZATION

certainly well setup, functions of the simplest, I do not even have the manual.

SOUNDS

transparent console? but then not so! of breath? not had time to try and do not want

EQ? no fishing

OVERALL OPINION

I used it one evening, I ordered a vestax pmc280 who had not arrived so I got to pay the 600. I had only read some contradictory comments on the consoles pioneer, but then the AC has exceeded everything I could imagine.
level of power is the catastrophe. Gain background, I am sometimes just to 0dB. The diodes are ok, but honest, put a diode to 1 db is tellment useless. La presion tell me it does. bin and before thinking about the diode, should consider the console. The effects are generally pretty easy to use as the table that is very well organized, except the master Knob stuck to the line 4. Thank you!
is the sound of anything. Even my old AudioPhony done the same! and then I'm good so that FCR not tell me it's my system.

I do not understand how one can love this table, especially for what it costs! ... except for ergonomics / effects in a pinch.

anecdote: I make my microphone talkover engaged. I no longer think. I start the evening off microphone. Stress and pregnancy: everything thoroughly, I leave nothing. qq minutes after I talk over the pops and AC "Pete" (well as a 600). I see no point in this damned talkover which is supposed to act only when using the microphone! That would mean that every time they are used, there was a big flop musical. really great. Normally, it acts intelligently but must believe not.

pvesco's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)"not bad, not bad but ...."

Pioneer DJM-600
The characteristics and performance are average (see below and in the other post on the subject of the components)

UTILIZATION

The setup is nice, it's the highlight of the console except some points carément unacceptable.
In the super ago: Ergonomics, possibilities and effects commands, bpm double if necessary (it can work with CDJ 100 that are inexpensive and well used), relative strength, and fader operation and ease of crosfader dedicated controls the position and size of controls, ease of mix and opportunities, working comfort, the headphones and controls PFL, the meters that help clear the fluid mix well ... I certainly forget
In the medium means there are: the master output fader and we can hang straight (Grr, it m'arive almost every evening ...), which is not very precise. The low number of entries online.
In the bad: second mic unusable (not practice it requires cutting a stereo channel, its pathetic ...), not cross main mic and trimmings limited active crossfader on two channels at once what does not really a four-way effect. This last point is really annoying 2cd + configuration interface two channels, we all have a computer in today. For the last CD input for a misplaced extension microphone or another (it is more practical on a DJM 400)

SOUNDS

Not so transparent breath.
EQ well
Acceptable sound at medium volume, but once you turn up the sound becomes dry and poor draft. We joined forces with an external EQ, it is sometimes confused with a big sound system. If the sound is low-end, do not have ears hard. With good sound that goes into working a little overboard. What I say is related to the extent it is still not his "bottom line" is still above average. Still, for example, DENON DNX 500 Genre I like better and seems more "musical" (I tested blind EQ 0). Sound from the microphone means and the second micro carément below the average ... Help!
To suggest a function as void to be done. I understand why I saw some DJ unplug them to plug their main mike HF example for a presentation. But hey, this is not the main function of a DJ table ...

OVERALL OPINION

What I like most about it is the use and overall capabilities. Adapting to different styles make it a platform universally appreciated (see above). For my part, CDJ100S use with Denon 4500 and things are going well. The caretaking work reliably and efficiently is limited and this is my occasional use. About 1000 Euros plus two Mix cdj 100, interface board and fly Denon. (Not counting the computer) ...
I am extremely disappointed cons of other points that I find unworthy of a camera in this class (see above). Smooth the mix is ​​good but when it is necessary to facilitate or simply to be heard is not great sometimes annoying (see various issues of micro and I do not talk over you ...)... Anyway, this function is disturbing, and requires little concentration: we happen to another table better equipped in this respect. Using open mic permanently requires the use of a very good style Shure microphone. The weight and handling of the hose will not fail to kill very quickly input jack on the front.
Value for money carément exaggerated hand, there has seen the price of ads. They are often (very) old and all are sold "as new". At 500 euros opportunity, if we compare with a DJM700 for little more, the sound is better and the device is guaranteed. Between 300 and 400 seems a more acceptable price.
on the other hand, its universality that the store "local" know them and can fix or renovate for low prices. A council, think about ventilation Authorities closed, it heats a lot! Given the state of those sent in for repair, I think it must improve its reliability over time ...
Tried other brands? Yes, some (see my other post). With the experience: there's more in other brands, (there is also much worse) you win the microphones and sound, but you lose the starts, or effects, or both ...
At Pioneer, the 800 seems much better and there are 4 starts but it will be still some way off given the price of nine. The 700 remains as competitive with better sound and some small ergonomic flaws corrected.
I've tested and used more (DJM600) many were bad ... . It is nevertheless a good tool.
on the other hand for a first purchase or for the mobile disco, I strongly recommend. Better to buy an equivalent budjet Denon nine if we use some effects (DNX 1100 or 500) or DJM 400 second-hand property in two ways, offers more options and configurations with a reduced size. Repeat this choice? No, I changed to a 400 eventually.
