I used to be a DJ and last Christmas I set up my "2 turntables and a microphone." I bought a new Numark DM1295 Professional DJ Sampling Mixer. I mixed and I scratched and I sampled just like when I was in High School. It was a great little toy and I loved to play with it, FOR ABOUT A DAY! Then I got really bored with it and have only used my turntables to play one record at a time since then. So anyway here is my problem: Since all my components are plugged into the mixer and the mixer is plugged into my 5 year old JVC Dolby Pro-Logic receiver, I got used to being able to play any component without having to switch anything on the receiver. I put on a record or a play a CD and I don't have to switch the input. This is the way I would like to keep it but I don't want to have 2 turntables and the mixer set up anymore because I need the space for other stuff. I would continue to use the mixer but you can't exactly put it in the component stack because it is not meant to fit like that (it fits across two tables like a bridge - 19" rack mount). Also because of its toy-like features (sampler etc.), I don't think it's really meant to serve the purpose (there is some leakage and stuff). So, can I replace the mixer with some other component that would allow me to plug in 3 CD players, a minidisc player, an SACD player (2 channel only), and a turntable and not have to switch the input everytime I start playing something? Or do I have to replace my receiver with some other type of component? I only use the receiver to amplify and broadcast sound as I don't need the switching and I barely ever use the Tuner. I do need a remote control for volume though. Am I even in the right section? P.S. Anybody want to buy a really cool DJ Mixer?
