I am getting this for my 16 yr old brother for Christmas. From other reviews I read online, I figured this is perfect for sessions on the go. Also, this seems perfect for my young brother since he is still pretty new to playing around with music mixing and in a really experimental phase right now... Just put in in your shirt pocket and you are good for an impromptu gig! I really love that no power source is needed! Just plug in two MP3's, iPhones, laptops/computers, whatever and you have your set ready. Comes with all cables (except for the amp connection). This brand has excellent reviews and looks really professional and high quality. The knobs feel like you are working a pro-grade Pioneer DJ Mixer, great quality. The metal finish is excellent, as well. I know my brother will cherish this for many years to come.
