    Nothing at all wrong with an S2. I have the S4 and live it. But in comparison to CDJ2000 Nexus they are cheap.

    We're in the process of building a new house and contained within will be my very own music room :thumbup: Anyone here have experience building custom consoles? I'm looking for advice on materials, finish, support etc.

    i was talking about the hercules dj console remix, not the S23. the S2 could be the way to go for a upgrade or a second hand S4

    It will be just for DJ'ing, although it would be cool to integrate a bar as well ;) I'm looking at recessing two turntables (ST-150's) and one mixer (Denon DN-1500S), with a bench above for two CD players, a laptop and other bits and pieces. I was looking at some sound activated LED bars to hide under the desk to provide a funky little light show and some strip LEDs for mood lighting. I've built a few things in my time out of timber, but nothing this big.

    Be careful flush mounting that mixer, friend has one; runs hot as balls.

    New house, good excuse for a new mixer... played a xone92 a while back, intriguing.

    Wow, am looking at a DDJ SX second hand and the price that ppl want for it are nuts!! Range from $650 - $1100. I guess around $700 is not bad, can pick them up for $899 new.

    I had the same issue looking for a CDJ 1000mk3. Prices from 250$ to 1800$ when new you can get them for 500$ or so

    I still dj, I don't talk about it much though. Too much gear talk not enough track talk.
