1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for DJ Mixers

1.1 Built Quality

Built quality is an essential factor to consider whether you are about to get your first DJ set or even if you are a Dj-ing veteran. We say so because the distinctive styling of each DJ mixer sets you apart and also assures that the components of the DJ mixer rest upon a solid and durable base and will not pose as an issue amid your gig. Aside from this, a premium quality mixer gives you a professional feel every time you're playing around or rehearsing.

Aside from this, a premium quality mixer gives you a professional feel every time you're playing around or rehearsing.

1.2 Battery Life

Your DJ mixer is like any other electrical device. Therefore, it requires either a power port to plug in and play or it's a battery-operated controller/ mixer. If latter is the case then it is imperative that it has a good battery backup and can sustain for hours over a single charge. Since the battery is the one that is fueling the whole process, you should consider this aspect in all seriousness and should pick a piece that suits your need the best.

Since the battery is the one that is fueling the whole process, you should consider this aspect in all seriousness and should pick a piece that suits your need the best.

1.3 Number of Screens and Screen Size 

Getting a proper screen size that suits your convenience is also an important thing to acknowledge while purchasing a DJ mixer. While not all the nuances of DJ-ing is known to absolute beginners, they may have to rely on the screen elements to deliver and mix better. These screen helps you to know the audio levels of the tracks that are being played and other relevant stats. The sizes and number of screens provided by different brands may vary. There are also mixers that have a single large screen to show the mixing.

1.4 Software Compatibility

DJ-ing is a software-cum hardware play and hence it is equally important to look at the software aspect and to buy software that you are comfortable with.

DJ mixers can work with the laptop and a few more devices including iPhone, Android tablets, iPads. Now, many DJ mixers are capable of mapping with different software via MIDI.

1.5 Ports and Connectivity

The DJ mixers normally bear a few essential ports for input/output and USB laptop connections. Ensure that your DJ mixer has spare ports when you want to connect the speakers and other essential devices, though you should not expect many ports in a beginner level DJ mixer.

1.6 Jog Wheels

A beginner DJ who is diving in for the first time into the field should invest in the mixer with good jog wheels. That makes the mix and match of the beats easy and effortless. They come with most of the modern mixers and help you to slow down or fasten the pace of the track, and even fade the tracks.

1.7 Number of Channels

The number of channels determines what number of songs can be played simultaneously and mixed together. More channels mean more songs can be mixed. Maximum four channels are available in a mixer and professionals use a 4 channel mixer. However, It's our recommendation for beginners to go for a mixer that has no more than two channels.

1.8 Dimension

The dimension of the DJ mixer size matters for the simple reason that if you have less space or a small studio, you will not be able to accommodate a large size DJ mixer. Often beginners DJ mixer comes in a smaller dimension and occupies less space. While a professional or experienced DJ mixer needs more space. Hence, choose your DJ mixer as per the space you can occupy.

Also, people who are travelling with their DJ mixer must concentrate on the dimensions to feel comfortable and easily carry it.

1.10 Weight

The weight of the equipment is one of the factors that can't be controlled while buying a DJ Mixer as more amenities makes the equipment bulkier and especially if its a mixer used by professionals. But the weight may pose an issue if there are no adequate measures to transport the machine every time you hit the road. Though beginner DJ mixers are much lighter than the mixers used by professionals.

1.11 Other Accessories

Additional accessories that come along a DJ mixer includes a stand to place the mixer, headphones, and a case to carry the mixer with ease. So your budget should have scope for this add-on expenditure.
