Go for the Allen Heath unless you can afford the pioneer DJM 400 that is such a fantastic mixer!

My words! I own one and i'm absolutely happy.

My brother has this mixer actually... it costs $500. Did you not see how I'm on a tight budget?... you keep suggesting higher priced mixers, of COURSE they'll be better!!

For those pitching in now, while I do appreciate the responses, did you see that I already decided??

Hehe, I've heard of that mixer but it's actually $200 more than the Pioneer and that's going too steep for what I need a mixer for. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Since I've already had the opportunity to play with the A&H Xone 22, I think I'm leaning towards the Pioneer now. I could always return it if I'm not pleased with it, and at least I'd have a benchmark with the Xone 22 to compare it with. I'm also liking the "white" edition...

Seriously, this is the best advice. I have gone in so many times thinking I wanted X and walked out with Y because of the first hand experience. If the shop doesn't have it setup, tell them to pull one out of the box. =) I've had piles of products pulled out of boxes before

That is great advice... there is also the method of returning what doesn't work for you.
I took a risk with this Pioneer, I'll admit, but at least I knew what the A&H Xone22 was already like so if I wasn't happy with the Pioneer I would have just returned it and bought another A&H.
Granted, you lose some money with shipping (I do online purchases), but I don't have any music shops nearby.
