"Well worth every penny"

Ordered this unit as a backup for my Wedding set up. I did not expect much for $250. When I got the unit I was blown away by the build quality. It does not look cheap. It is not a $1200 pioneer but for the price it far exceeds what I was expecting. The unit sounds great and everything works flawlessly. It's missing some bells and whistles but I would have no problem using 2 of these as main units. I plan to buy another and use them along with my Denon MC6000mk2. I will have a 4 deck system that gives me piece of mind at every gig. If you are a beginner DJ do not let the Pioneer groupies steer you from getting these to start with. They will serve you quite well. Experienced DJs should consider these as low cost back ups fo any mobile set up. I have been a DJ for 30 years using vinyl, CDs, CDJs, and controllers. You will not regret this purchase.
