When it comes to dj controllers, I've always prioritized portability and value. That's why if I ever get back into spinning, the Pioneer DDJ-SB2 may be the way to go. First off, some basic specs:
- Weight & dimensions: 15 lbs., 19.17" x 2.3" x 10.68"
- Serato and Rekordbox compatible
- MSRP: $249
Full list is available on the Pioneer product page.
Also, a comprehensive review from someone who's used it:
'The best entry-level "pro" controller just got better... With compatibility amongst all the major DJ apps in the market today including Serato DJ and Rekordbox, this is the controller to beat in the sub-$250 range.' - Digital DJ Tips (4.5 stars out of 5)
Bottom line - people seem to agree the Pioneer DDJ-SB2 is about as good as it gets for the price. Just from reading the feedback from users on Amazon, I'd definitely consider it as a primary all-in-one controller for practice and gigs.
