To many a beginner, a mixer is a mixer (is a mixer). To a certain extent that’s true; bargain basement mixers tend to be much of a muchness, and that muchness typically isn’t particularly high fidelity. There are plenty of sub £100/$150 mixers on the market, but quite often it’s a better value proposition to scout the second hand market for an older, perhaps discontinued mixer with a good reputation.
