Nothing really quite compares to Pioneer for the industry standard, at the moment.
If you really wanna check out some alternatives, I'd suggest the Denon CDJs with the rotating platter
As for mixer, that's not my main area of expertise, but I've been called a "Pioneer *****" more than once
The type of mixer you want really depends on your mixing style and how deep you really want each mix to be. For trance, check out ones with 4-band EQ's (high mid low-mid low), and for other less complex styles go with the standard 3-band EQ (high mid low). You don't really need to go spend a bunch of money on a Rane or Xone:92 mixer, since those are usually in clubs by default.
yeah the industry standard
is rly expensive
but i meani currently found a rly good deal for some eqipment

Hopefully ea will get more notice of afterhours.... I post my sets in the "EA mix squad section" every time ive played a set here! So hopefully some members check in there and notice afterhours aswell.... You can call it hide'ed promotion
