meh, an occasional hijack happens.
I've got 2 200's and a DXM 06, and I've been content for a couple of years. I just recently started tinkering around with putting aside money for more boss stuff since I feel I'm outgrowing my setup at the moment. I mean, I still think I suck, but I want better shit.
I've been torn between the Xone and the 800 because I had a 500 and loved its simplicity and how well it performed. But I also loathe Pioneer for raising the price of the 800 when they released the 700 and now the 700 is going for the same price the 800 was when the 800 was originally released. Mega gay.
I've never played on a Xone, but if I'm getting the cdjs they'll have plenty of effects on them already, so no need for the cheesy 800 effects. I want to learn how to implement the Xone filters and tinker about with 4-band EQ instead of 3-band.
Maybe I need to take a test drive of both over at Guitar Center, but this will be a waaaaayyyys out when I am ready to purchase the mixer. Maybe there'll be a new Xone out and I can get the 92 at a discount
My advice would be to try the Xone out. You'll fall in love with it instantly! It doesn't have any effects like the pio's but who cares, effects are gay anyways. Fun to play around with for a while then you realize that less is more. Unless you're James Zabiela that is, but we aren't
