Well padawan... i sense much anger in you....

fear is the path to the darkside... fear leads to anger... anger leads to hate... hate leads to suffering

welcome @ Dj Resource

pioneer is very expensive... but when i was sixteen i had one pioneer cdj 100... you can look on some internet site's if someone is selling an old cdj 100. In Holland you can get an cdj 100 for 200 Euro...

Hmm. I think you can buy the CDJ-200's. Have you figured out already what 1 CDJ 200 will cost to get it into your home? The Numarks are not a bad choice, although I have another model mixer of Numark than the ones you've mentioned. Also look at the 3 channel mixers of Stanton, if budget is a constraint to buy the 2 channel Pioneer mixer.

well and think they cost 400 each and the shipping would be something like 100 dollars with ups, which numark do u have?

I thougt it would be more expensive, only 20% added to the selling price in the USA sounds good.

I got the 3 channel DM3001X. I can clearly hear a little sound degradation, but its not so bad. Also because I have very good speakers. It features 3 band equalizers for each channel and kill switches. No effects. I guess it would cost around USD 275 at your door. The difference with the DM3002X is that it doesn't have separate channel VU meters. You would still be within your budget.

You should consider a 3 channel mixer if you also want to connect your laptop. Or you shouldn't mind using the input selector switches.

What soundcard does your lap top have? Only digital or also RCA outputs?

Also look at the Stanton C.303. It features a bigger jog than the CDJ-200, but it has no MP3 playback or effects as the CDJ-200. But it's a little cheaper.

You should also think about a headphone remember? And good ones are expensive, at least USD 100. Are you then still within your budget. I assume you already have decent speakers.

my real problem now is the mixer,  i cant decide, i want a 3 channel but i dont know which

If you will import from USA, your only choice for a 3 channel mixer will be from Numark or Stanton. Pioneer has no 3 channel mixers. Take a look at the specs of the model I own; it has all the basic features you'll need. Then make it as expensive as possible, thus what your budget allows. That is for added quality. Then you have automatically narrowed your choices down to a few. Then you can post again for a second opinion and finally make your choice.
