Great mixer for someone who is on a budget and is just getting into DJing. You get all the features you need for mixing and scratching. It is built well, it looks clean and gives you quality sound.
Stanton M.203 Review
The stanton M.203 has a simple, clean look that looks great. It has a solid steel design to it. It resembles the M.207 which is the step above from the M.203.
The layout isn’t cramped like other mixers in this price range. Faders run smooth, and knobs feel great while in use. A cool feature with this, is that the crossfader is replaceable, and it also allows you to select between mixing and cutting. This is great for the DJs who want to scratch.
It gives you three EQs per channel. You also get meters for your cue and master.
Layout wise, on the back panel there are four inputs, two switchable phono/lines, two line outs plus a mic. THere are also two outputs, master out and a record out. Headphone jacks are on the front.
Mixing with the M.203 is great, it feels natural and smooth. Scratching is the same, the crossfader is responsive, while blending everything is clean and crisp.
