"Great Beginning Mixer or Workhorse"

This mixer is rackable, or the model that I had was at the time or purchase. They may have changed or upgraded design, I am unsure. It has analog connections and 2 channels, each with a line/phono input on each. The EQ is not parametric. Automation is not supported nor is any kind of synch. This is a basic mixer with no bells or whistles, making it ideal for a beginner or 'workhorse' mixer to use in less sensitive situations.


The functions are very accessible and easy to use. The killswitches and eq's are the only real feature, and they are the most basic of mixer controls. There should not be any problem with installation or use, and the manual is clear as there is not much for it to explain. The mixer is fairly small and easy to transport, making it ideal as a submixer or backup for live gigs or traveling studio applications.


Numark mixers are not the highest of quality. In my experience with the two that i
I've owned, the quality is fine but there is a deterioration in the quality of the crossfaders and volume faders relatively quickly. Even though the mixer is still great for a beginner, a more experienced dj would want to upgrade relatively quickly once the potentiometers and crossfaders started to deteriorate. On the other hand, it is doubtful that one would incur much cost in replacing parts for a mixer of this type.


I like this mixer for its portability and basic, bare bones functionality. The overall quality is probably a little less than what an experienced dj would want, but it does the job and certainly would not prevent one from rocking the dance floor if one were forced to use it at a gig. My first ever mixer was a barebones numark (it didn't even have kill switches) and it served me well for a few years. I would certainly recommend it for those who are on a budget as well.
