Numark Party Mix Live side view

Numark just launched the Party Mix II and the Party Mix Live DJ controllers for Serato DJ Lite, which are the successors of the hugely popular Party Mix controller from Numark.

The difference between both controllers is the built-in speaker of the Party Mix Live. I highly doubt, to be honest, that the speaker is a valuable addition though, and my guess is that any decent Bluetooth speaker will easily outperform it. I would definitely go for the speakerless version here and get a separate speaker for the price difference.

That being said, the Party Mix II offers a lot of features for a limited price. It has 4 performance pads per deck, a filter knob per channel, and a two-way EQ per channel. The jogs look decent, and with the support for Serato DJ Lite, you have all you need in a compact package.
