After weeks of research and years of waiting, finally a professional standard quality mixer arrives at my door.
The Behringer DDM4000 has been reviewed by many experts and is generally regarded as the best quality and cheapest option for the professional market, with features such as built in BPM counters, sampling and effects sections and optical crossfaders, which would be worth nearer £1000 from one of the leading brands, such as Pioneer, Vestax or Technics.
I cannot wait to test it out with the Technics and new speakers. The weird thing is I may not have ever heard my records in this way before, as before I was using a cobbled together system, partly using old hi-fi speakers with terrible leads. The Tannoy Reveail speakers i’ve now got apparently pick out every element of the recording and there is nowhere to hide! It will not flatter a lack of skill, or mistakes, so this is also a good challenge.
