Not rack-mountable, it has a somewhat "mixed" format, but anyway...
2 lines, 2 phonos, 1 mic (on the rear), two outputs with independent volume controls (which is great), and a nice and very effective ultra-boost button (to amplify the low frequencies).

The connector for the deck's ground feels a bit crappy at first, but you get used to it.

High/Mid/Low for each channel + a gain control. The EQs reduce the level quite heavily (you can almost mute a sound entirely by setting the three EQ bands to the minimum!)

Built-in multi-effects (a KAOSS PAD 2 within a mixer. I love it!).
30 second sampler (four customizable samples).

BPM counter (for those who use it).

So, 9/10 due to the crappy ground connector (I would've given it 9.5).

USE

It's really easy to understand. Mine didn't come with a manual (but you can download it from their website).

The manual covers a lot of topics, but it's well organized.

SOUND QUALITY

Excellent!
High output level and very good effects (I'm repeating myself).

OVERALL OPINION

I've had it for two years and don't regret my purchase at all!
It only lacks a third channel to be the perfect tool!

Decent value for money (I got it for 550 euros, 300 cheaper than announced!).

BUY BUY BUY!
