DJ Mixers

The main component of turntablism is the mixer the tool that takes the sounds from the turntables and combines them to create a new sound

The major difference with DJ mixers is the ability to redirect an input source to headphones

Another unique factor is the cross fader which allows easy transitions between two sources
