To help you, we’ve put together a short list that includes three of the best 2-channel DJ mixers chosen based on budget price and quality features.  We delved into the specific characteristics of each mixer, talking about the things we like and the things we don’t like.

The essential requirements that any 2-channel mixer must have are specific to the models that you will find below, and which we are going to briefly summarize:

Pioneer DJ DJM-350 2-Channel – See price or buy

Pioneer is known for manufacturing quality electron components and we were therefore not disappointed with the DJM-352 DJ model. One feature that has led to this mixer being included in our best 2-channel list is the ability to record directly to a USB device. This feature eliminates the need for other software and hardware that are usually required for recording and sharing mixes. All you have to do is insert a USB stick into the connector and you’ll be recording your mixes in crystal clear quality in no time. Beginners can use the recording feature to listen to and improve their mixing techniques, while more experienced DJs will appreciate how easy it is to go straight from mixing to posting a copy of their mix online.

The Traktor Kontrol Z2 DJ mixer from Native Instruments has a lot of features that are packed into a ruggedly built mixer.
