Xone 92. If you want quality audio with no distortion stay away from pioneer mixers :p

I chose Pioneer for the effects and quallity. I think you won't hear any diffence between the sound quallity of a DJM or a Xone... You can only read those numbers on the specifications page but you wont hear the differenceWinking my eye. But the 4D is actually a very good mixer for a Xone:D.

Xone 92, great filters, faders, build-quality, sound-quality and a great 4-band EQ.

Of course you can hear it. I have a DJM-800 and a friend of me has a Xone (62 I think) 4 channels with 2 mic channels (didn't see the thing for more than 8 months). But the xone has a better sound quality and when you absolutely close a EQband than you won't here anything and with my DJM-800 you will always here something.

I think you don't use the same monitors as him? Difference in monitors and eq is also very important. It might be true about the EQ bands but it can't be a big differenceWinking my eye.

i'v had my eye on the DJM 800 for a while but dont think i can afford it, so i was looking at the DJM 700, is there another mixer that comes close to the effects of these mixers?

Maybe the Nuo 5... (999 euro)
Or the Evo 4 (1199 euro)
steve-wilson    posted on 28-07-2008 18:57
could the Nuo 5 be used as a MIDI controller also, like the DJM 800/700??
JollyJunkie    posted on 28-07-2008 19:00
I'm not shure but I don't think that te Nuo 5 can be used as a MIDI controller but the Evo 4 can be used as a MIDI controller.

The Evo 4 is even a very nice mixer with a lot of functions! The Evo 4 is also Midi compatibleWinking my eye.

You can't use a nuo5 as a midi controler, there's only a midi clock on it nothing else i thought.

dont think i would consider an EVO4, for that money i would rather have the DJM 700

With the Evo-4 you can do more! The DJM-700 is not bad but I would choose a Evo-4 Winking my eye
steve-wilson    posted on 31-07-2008 00:29
what more can you do on the EVO4?

With the EVO 4 you also have a good midi controller in your hands. An other advantage is thath you have two separte effect sections. If you would you could layer this effect sections. This way you can apply two effects on one channel.

The EVO 4 also has filters just like the xone. My advise: Go try the mixers, if you are willing to spend so much money on a mixer, test it. A mixer is next to your girlfriend the most personal thing you will have in your house Winking my eye

it all depends by the kind of music u play... the xOne's are made to play minimal & techno music, the filters are made to give the highest performance with these kinds of music..
the pioneer... dunno... never touched one.. i play minimal..
dondanielo    posted on 17-12-2008 16:41
well if you chose to buy a pioneer, I'd consider buying the djm 700 or the 800.
I would not go for the 600, because the audio as well as the gear quality is way less then the quality from the other ones.

I guess the evo 4 looks nice as well, especially the price, but I didn't try that one out yet..

ow dangerous...

I don't think they're made FOR techno (and minimal which is derivate of techno). The 92 series is developped with the help of techno and also minimal pioneer (not the brand) Richie Hawtin. They're very handy for techno. In my opninion because of the fact that they're very detailled, 4 band EQ, 2 superb filters, excellent faders, ... and I think techno dj's are also very refined and want to have every single thing under their control, every little frequency. I  think it's an aspect that techno dj's and the xone series have in common. Many techno dj's use the xone for this reason, (but not all of time like Jeff Mills, Carl Cox, Derrick Mayand Kevin Saunderson to name a few of the biggest who only seldom use a xone).

It's more inportant to know what kind of technology you as a dj use for dj'ing. The Pioneer is great clubmixer for dj's who like to play gigs with just cd's. The colour FX and the effect box have alot of options for creativity during the gig. 
But if you as a dj play at gigs with ableton or serato and etc, the xone and evo has alot of midi options which are very interresting to combine with the dj software on laptop.

That's not true.
The djm has more midi options than the xone. The evo has also al lot of efx, so wouldn't that be nice with a cd steup?
Can't you use the mixer's effects with a timecode setup or with ableton? sure you can.

By the way: effects are something you like or don't like.
