After a slew of expensive and aspirational two channel mixers, DJ Tech managed to reinvent themselves and deliver exactly what the market needed, i.e. an affordable by capable scratch mixer in the shape of the DIF-1S (review here). And while capable, it had some omissions, which appear to have been fixed in the new DIF-2S.
DJ Tech product specialist DJ Queazy aka Patrick Danaher slipped out some pictures of the new mixer today. From these we can see:
- Master cue added (biggest omission IMHO)
- Balanced outputs
- Line fader curves
- Line fader reverses
For me this puts the DIF-2s where it should have been when the DIF-1s was launched, and probably makes this the go-to entry-level scratch mixer. It’s not like there’s a lot of choice at this end of the market. Oh and apparently it’ll come in four different finishes and does have a mini Innofader.
No word on price or ETA, but I’m pretty sure we’ll find out soon enough.
