Is there a perfect mixer for under $300? Back in April, we reached out to our readers to help us identify a selection of mixers around that price point which would be most interesting to review as a group. Today, we present the results of that test. We've gathered mixers from Allen & Heath, Pioneer, DJ-Tech, and Behringer—all of which can be found in stores for around $300 or less—to help you make that choice perfect budget-mixer choice.
Big changes are afoot here at DJ TechTools and because this is a community website, everyone needs to be involved in that process. We are considering everything from new gear to review, to expanding our reviews and tutorials and even a full site redesign, so don't miss this opportunity to get your opinion in. We are so serious about including your feedback - that we're even giving away $15 store credit to everyone who completes the survey!

All traveling DJs need something to carry their gear around in, even if they’re just hoofing it down to the local dive bar for a tune-up set.
