Im looking at 2 CDJ-1000mk3's but am having trouble desciding between the Pioneer DJM-700 and?? Allen & Heath Xone62. If you were choosing between the two then which would you go for? I need to be convinced either way Cry
Of course if anyone has experience with either then it would be useful to know your thoughts.


Cheers DomCry

Hard choice!

The DJM-700 is more a club/house mixer.
The Xone-62 is more a minimal/techno mixer because of his awsome filters!

I would go for the djm 800 because if you can buy a djm 700 you cas possibly buy a 800, but if you can't i would go for the xone.

This is really bullshit...

I thought that with the Xone 62 you don't hear the EQ's on your pfl when you are pre listening a channel.

Some webshops (like new-line) can offer the Xone 62 with a modification.

I should place the newer DJM-700 above the much older Xone 62...
If I were you I would wait a month and buy a Xone92/DJM-800 Cry

Why is it bullshit? The filters are not really usefull with hardcore/hardstyle... with minimal end techno you can use them a lot smoother!
And it's my opinnion, you can try it yourselfs. The DJM-707 has effects what can be really usefull with house and dance things!

I've tried the Xone62 4 times and worked with the 92. they are really nice mixer but I can't remember that the EQ doesn't work on your phones.

Maybe you have to wait a few days! The Xone42 is out now!

3 band EQ
4 Channels
Filter

A lot of bullshit is posted in this thread. Happy, laughing
If you really want to know what works best for you, you probably could try to find someone who has one of the mixers to check it out. Or maybe there's a store near you which sells the wanted mixers.

Neither one of the two you doubt about is 'the best'. It's just what you like.
The DJM-700 has effects and midi-possibilities and looks (and works?) just like a DJM-800. The Xone62 has 4-band EQ and filters.  That are probably the most  important features which could  help you decide.

You write it down like facts.
And why can't you use filters with hardcore and hardstyle.
If you are creative enough you can use filters with every style of music.

Now on topic...
If I were you I would go to a store where they have both mixers and try them yourself.

Go for the pioneer(DJM-800 preferebly), club standard...

Although maybe a bit to much for the bedroom.

Whether its bullshit or not, the fact is that A&H is much more active in the minimal market than anywhere else. In my experience I've found that usually at tech/minimal parties you will find an Xone while for other styles pioneer is more of a standard. Furthermore, i would have to agree with tairip that the filters are best used for minimal/electro as long transitions generally sound better with more advanced filter options.

Anyways... to cut a long story short, when choosing between the Pioneer and the A&H, you're prettymuch making a choice between filters and all the rest. The xone 62's filters are amazing whereas the Pioneer filter is more of an effect rather than a device for creating amazing transitions like the 62. If, however, you just want to use the filters for an occasional LPF or HPF or something, definitely go for the Pioneer. Not only is it more up to date, I find that the level indicators on the A&H are lacking which makes it (in my experience) hard to set your gains propperly, resulting in the fact that you'll have to set them prettymuch on the fly while transitioning.
