A mixer that paved the way
This was my second battle-style DJ mixer after a Stanton SK-Two, and boy it did not disappoint! The faders felt very great for pre-Rane's own Magnetic Fader, and the control curves allowed me to hamster scratch which I couldn't do on the Stanton (both because the x-fader sucked and because the minimum travel only allowed for very basic scratches). The success for a nice battle mixer is having all the space required around the faders area, and this mixer had all the estate one could want.
The Lexan faceplate was supposed to be scratch-resistant for years, and weirdly it was not. Because of the way I cut, my finger joints would rub against the faceplate and it took about 6 months for it to show kind of a polished look against the otherwise matte faceplate.
Two other small things that bothered me: transform switches broke off easily without much playing, and the 6P4C connector of the power supply...well is just like any other 6P4C phone connector and the lock pin would break if you just looked at it. Rane says even though the connector looks like a phone connector it is not and in case of broken connector you should change the whole power supply... That is of course BS and you actually can repair the thing, you just have to note cable colours order, or give them one if no colours. It is indeed a standard 6P4C connector, you just have to crimp it properly.
Looks like I've written more bad things and good, but I can assure you that it's just because this thing is so well built, sounds so great, looks and feels professional and is (was?) a fantastic first pro scratch mixer at a time where the pro battle DJ market was mostly split between Vestax and Rane.
