Rane TTM-56 Mixer
I had a vestax when this mixer first came out and really didnt think there could be that big of a difference in the crossfader even though any dj i knew that had one swore by it. i tried one out and they were right, the feel of the rane magnetic crossfader is unparalleled as well as its razor sharp curve control.
I know its just a needle case and it may seem trivial but you could throw this thing off a ten story building and your needles will still be ok which is pretty important if your using turntables.
I prefer mounting cartridges on these instead of using one piece head shells.
I was making my own slip mats with wax paper forever and tried these and never looked back, these things are like banana peels.
Best sound and most comfortable for dj'ing in the club. I've tried other brands of headphones and haven't found anything that comes close to the sound and comfort that these have.
