What are you trying to do? Live? Recording? For a great many projects, you simply don't need a mixer at all. IMO, using a mixer as a patchbay or switching box is a mistake. At the price range you are looking at, you will experience all the pain and problems of bad analog - nothing like the mojo of of high end analog gear. So at that level, it is way better to mix digitally if at all possible. If you have an audio interface, generally it will have all the functionality you need to do basic jobs.

So if you are convinced you need a mixer, that's about as cheap as it gets. Real bottom dwelling stuff.

Well, im getting the rokit rp6's which are self powered, but i would like a gain knob. Wouldnt a mixer also get the speakers louder than just the knobs on the back and windows volume control?
