I could repeat the product specs, but i will just adress a few things that weren't mentioned.
-It's a budget rip-off of the vestax pmc 07(nicely done though)
-The line faders are 45 mm, not 60 mm
-The crossfader is super smooth (more on that later)



UTILIZATION

It's a straight forward scratch mixer.
everything is in the right place and there is enough space on the faceplate for all you scratch heads.
Didn't need the manual

SOUNDS

For a mixer in this price range the sound quality is superb.
The eq is effective and has full kills.

OVERALL OPINION

-The crossfader is super smooth for a mixer in this price class
It's actually the same crossfader that's build into the american audio qd5 scratchmixer. The qd5 was the so called best beginner scratch mixer because of it's optical crossfader. So i find it funny that this mixer didn't had the same succes. I had this mixer for 6 years now and there hasn't been a issieu with the crossfader since i bought it. Yeah it starts to stick a bit after a while, but after a bit of cleaning it's like brand new. The cut in of this crossfader is also really sharp. and you can adjust the lag of the fader if you take it out. Its already factory set to the shortest lag that's about 2 mm. I did a creditcard mod so my lag is about 1 mm now.

-the cross and line faders have full curve adjustments and hamster switches

-The potmeters feel good, but the minifaders ar a bit wobbly.

-The thing i didn't like about this mixer was the faceplate. It was way to rough one the fingers and acted like sandpaper on your nails. I sanded it down and now it's super smooth.

-I think the pricing on this mixer was absurd when it came out. I don't understand that it didn't get any recognition. A lot of beginning scratchers discarded it and got a american audio qd5 or a stanton sa-3 instead.

I tried a stanton sa 3 and own a sk two and this mixer is much beter in my opinion.

If i find another one second hand i'll buy it in a heartbeat as a back-up.
