It'll be a while before I can get my hands on one, so in the mean time take a look at the video reviews of the MASSIVE update from the RX2

Missing out on streaming and analysing on the controller is a big miss though. It's not really stand alone without these, it's just a digital controller with a screen.
I imagine it will come, and it's something dropped from the launch just to get it out of the door.

Still it's a shame that it's not included right now.

I have received my RX3 today finally!
It's a bit of an upgrade from the FLX6 even though the jog wheels are a lot smaller. It's going to take some time to get used to it. It took ,me about an hour to even get sound from it!!!

Because it's closer to actual professional DJ gear, it's a bit tricker to align the beat grids, but that of course if WHY you learn to beat match by ear.

It's all VERY new to me, if I'd bought the XDJ-XZ I'd be even more disheartened than I am now, but I need to learn how this controller works, plays and how to play my music in a professional manner.

God I'm pissed. Half a bottle of Vodka in an hour. I had a quick play after I'd set it up and I was utterly shite, a few hours later and the vodka, I was much better. Now I need to be consistent.

I can tell you streaming from Beatport is poor, no analysis and delayed playback/lag is really bad, even though I'm connected to my PC via USB. Playing from USB stick is awesome though. OMG it's good. Even my smart playlists work and this makes life a LOT easier.

One serious issue. When you sort by KEY, it sorts 1, 10, 11, 12, 2, ,3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. So not in proper numerical order. This will probably be fixed later, but it's been 4 months, why not already?
