Stanton RM406 19" Rackmount DJ Mixer
A 4-channel, rackmount-style mixer with Stanton’s SST™ technology that delivers pristine audio quality on par with studio mixing consoles. Extensive routing and interfacing, including 10 line/CD inputs and 4 Phono inputs, can accommodate even the most complex DJ setups. The RM.406 provides three mic inputs (2 XLR and 1/4”), with 3-band EQ and Talkover function, as well as FX Send and Return connectors. A minijack input allows easy connection of an iPod™ or similar portable HD player. The RM.406’s stunning industrial design features touches like diffused LEDs, and its innovative Illumiknobs™ use colored backlight to show knob position in dark environments.
Each channel on the RM.406 hosts separate Gain and 3-band EQ with complete kills. A fully-assignable crossfader with curve control and Fader Start function complements its versatile Cue section, which features stereo/split function, cue pan and level control. A variety of outputs are provided, including Master (XLR balanced and 1/4”), Zone (1/4” balanced and RCA), Booth (RCA), Record (RCA) and Headphone (1/4” and 1/8”). Designed for today’s music, the RM.406 features an XLR Subwoofer output with sweepable crossover (80Hz to 320Hz).

SST mixers offer several important advantages for DJs:
Why add noise to your mix when you can have the pure sound of SST? Try this with your current DJ mixer: Make sure nothing is playing, then turn all the channel faders and master fader to their maximum positions. Then boost all the EQ's to their highest settings. What you'll probably get is a bunch of hiss and noise. On an SST mixer, you won't hear a thing!
Another problem common to DJ mixers is channel bleed. For example, let's say you have a CD playing on channel 1 and nothing playing on channel 2. On many mixers, if you were to turn up channel 2's fader all the way you would hear the music bleeding over from channel 1. Again, with an SST mixer all you would hear is silence.
Better Overall Sound.
Because Stanton builds SST mixers with high dynamic range and low distortion, their mixers have a much more clean, transparent sound than the competition. The result is your music will sound the way it was intended, without being "colored" by the circuitry of the mixer. Compare the specs head-to-head with other mixers at a similar price, and you'll find that SST mixers are head and shoulders above the rest.
Built to Last.
SST mixers are designed using only the highest quality components for longer life and more reliable performance. Did you know that many mixers use circuit boards made of a paper-like material? Spill a drink on that and your mixer is toast. SST mixers use glass epoxy boards for better durability. They also feature surface-mount technology, which means if you were to open one up you wouldn't see a mess of wires but a clean design that keeps our mixers so quiet.
