Question about Pioneer DJm500 Professional DJ Mixer W/Effects System
Hi I have 2 technics 1200s and a pioneer djm 500 mixer and i'm having mucho trouble getting the damn things to play above a very quiet amplitude.
Both turntables have recently had some work done and both SEEM fine to me and I was told that they were fine internally by the repair guy.
I bought the DJM 500 for very cheap at an estate sale kinda thing, so it seems like it's probably a problem with the mixer? NO, the TTs play low when plugged directly into my roomates home stereo pioneer receiver.
I am currently using a pair of m-audio BX8a's plugged directly into the mixer via xlr. It's like listening to a tiny cassette tape/radio player from walgreens - there IS sound but with ALL SETTINGS turned all the way up, it's light as hell.
I've also used a single 12 inch powered PA speaker that was the same way, soft...
Effing frustrating! I've been building this stereo for months so i can rok my jams loud as hell and it's doing nothing of the sort....
I have no amp, just the two 1200s a djm 500 and two pretty powerful powered studio monitors, STILL, very low sound.
Looks like the mixers pre amp has failed thus the cheap purchase price, no easy fix, needs a qualified tech to look at it. I would reccomend a qualified Pioneer specialist.

Are you sure you have your tt's plugged into the phono line with the master booth knob turned up? Check the mixer too cuz the techs should be square.
