The DJM-600 is as good as the 800, but a grand cheaper
A lot of working DJs want what Pioneer has; the problem with that is, what Pioneer has is sort of expensive. It’s cool to purchase, sample and play with all their new gear, but what if you don’t have the money? What happens to the broke working DJ who can’t dish out three grand for a mixer? Good news: there is a way to still buy the Pioneer products you love brand new, with all the features their latest products harbor. Just buy the predecessor of every equipment, not its fresh-on-the market successor.
Not too long ago, I did a post about the DJM-800. Check it out, it’s a really cool mixer. It has four convenient channels, great effects and it ain’t bad looking either. But it costs over 2 grand. Its predecessor, the DJM-600, is basically the same. It has fewer effects, but the same amount of channels. Also, it looks practically the same as the DJM-800 so aesthetics isn’t a problem. On top of that, you can’t question the quality, because it’s a Pioneer mixer. And guess what? It’s a grand less than it’s hot successor.

At $1100 (retail), the DJM-600 costs a grand less than the DJM-800
What’s better than all the effects is that working DJs can find the Pioneer DJM-600 for around $900 street. Not bad for a professional DJ mixer that has a ton of effects, the basic features, versatility, ease of use, and quality you find scarce these days. I suggest you head over to Pioneer’s official web site and get an in depth description of the special effects shown above.
With a price like this, many beginning DJs can get a professional mixer they won’t need to trade in later down the road. Plus, the complexity is at a level a second grader could understand, so beginning DJs don’t have to worry about understanding the face of the DJM-600. You guys will have more trouble with the DJM-800 and 909, but not the 600. Furthermore, every DJ with every genre can use this mixer. Pioneer exudes versatility with every design they make. So if you like techno, the DJM-600 doesn’t discriminate. If you’re more into hip-hop, again I say the DJM-600 doesn’t discriminate. It caters to all genres.
Overall, I don’t think working DJs will find anything wrong with the DJM-600. It’s a really good mixer, and it will last a long time even if you treat it badly. The sound is almost incomparable, but that’s no surprise. The aesthetics is on top of its game…kinda. It’ll take two seconds to understand, and the build is a Pioneer build, which basically means it’s built like a tank. Built to last.
Same old, same old. Now let’s see what you can do with it. I’ve got to give this guy applause, because he’s pretty awesome.
