We were in need of a versatile controller for small weddings and birthday parties (with one mic for a host) and also for private parties (to be able to connect turntables). So this unit does the job perfectly. I will not talk about technical stuff that is all in the manual. I'll just tell what i like about this controller.
Pros: - body is made out of metal and quality plastic. We are still using it with a MAGMA flight case, but it seems like it is able to withstand hard conditions also without a case - all the buttons, fadders and knobs has a decent space between them, so you do not press or touch something by accident. Unit feels like real mixer with two CDJ's and not like a kids toy - has more than enough inputs and outputs. The big issue for some people is that you have to dedicate one fadder for the MIC if you want to use it. But it is not an issue for me. I don't use MIC and turntables at a same time. Also you can switch between the source of the input very quickly so no problem here - other things like sound quality, functions, button layout is a top notch as expected from Pioneer - i am loving analog filter effect for each channel
Cons: - i know that first DDJ SX had some problems with MIC feedback noises and that this problem was fixed in DDJ SX2, but just sometimes (when i really abuse the MIC gain or the host is too close to a speaker) we get a feedback noise from a MIC. We are using Sennheiser EW145 MIC and we had no issues with Denon MC6000MK2 controller
Controller is just a half of the whole thing you will be using. Other half is of course software. DDJ SX2 comes with Serato DJ software. I know it is one of the oldest controller software out there so you think it would be refined and very good but i gave it few spins and it seem to do the job OK. But i always come back to Virtual DJ software no matter what. The thing is that it is way more powerful and very easy to use. Serato lacks functions like: - instant track pre-listen from a middle of any track (no need to put track on the deck and rewind it) - key tone jumping (function that Denon is using to promote its new MCX8000 controller) is already in a software - rolls, slicers and samples has more options (via shift, parameter 1 and parameter 2 combinations) - also samples editing inside a software, effects with tons of parameters, etc.
In conclusion i would most definitely buy this controller again. It is top of it's class and is a beast of a machine when you learn how to use it properly
