Gizmag goes ears-on with the Technics RP-DH1250 Pro DJ headphones from Panasonic

DJ's around the world were dismayed a couple years ago when Panasonic announced it was discontinuing its Technics line of turntables, which had become the brand of choice among many professionals since the SL-1200 turntable was released in 1972. Recently though, the company decided to commemorate the iconic SL-1200's 40th anniversary by reintroducing the Technics brand with a new product: the RP-DH1250 Pro DJ headphones. We've been spending some quality time with Panasonic's latest headphones to find out if they live up to the Technics name.  Read More

The DDJ-SX is the first four-channel DJ controller to feature Serato software

Pioneer has just revealed the DDJ-SX, which is the first four-channel DJ controller to use Serato's advanced DJ software. In fact, according to Pioneer, everything about this unit was designed specifically with Serato in mind – everything from the design of the unit itself to the trigger pads and controls were made to work with it. The device comes bundled with Serato, so DJs won't need to purchase anything else.  Read More

The Pioneer CDJ-2000nexus

Pioneer is rolling out a new addition to its family of CDJ multi players for professional DJs. This new model, called the CDJ-2000nexus, is the first in the industry to include Wi-Fi connectivity. Pioneer has a long history of making CDJ players, which are designed to mimic some of the control options that vinyl provides from a CD or digital music file.  Read More

Pioneer's DDJ-WeGO DJ console is perfect for beginners, or veterans on a budget

When CDs replaced vinyl as the DJ format du jour, Pioneer established itself as the club standard with classics like the DJM-600 mixer and the CDJ-1000 CD player. Now that there's a whole generation of DJs coming of age who've never owned a CD in their life, Pioneer's latest bit of kit caters for the digital DJ who can't afford something like the XDJ-AERO.  Read More

The term disc-jockey is thought to have first been coined in the mid-1930s to introduce a radio show host who played recorded (rather than live) music. Although 12-inch platters of grooved black goodness remain popular with Club and Party DJs, it's rare to find a radio professional who hasn't abandoned the format in favor of digital music. Mix-masters who have gone digital can also groove on the move thanks to powerful apps for smartphones and tablets like IK Multimedia's DJ Rig, but physical connectivity is still needed when adding device-based audio tracks to the set. Pioneer's Professional Sound and Visual Division has rallied to the cause with what's claimed to be the industry's first Wi-Fi DJ system capable of wireless playback from portable devices ... the XDJ-AERO.  Read More

The Philips FWP3200D sports all the features you need to get a party started

While there's plenty of iPhone and iPod speaker docks on the market, you’d be hard-pressed to find one which screams “PARTY” as loud as the Philips FWP3200D does. Indeed, we’re not quite sure what inspired Philips to put out such an over the top product, but whether the office water fountain was spiked or an intern was let loose in the design department, somebody over there is clearly in the mood for a good time, and who are we to argue?  Read More

The Juke Box car audio system puts the average bass thumper to shame

The Nissan Juke may be one of the fugliest cars on the market today, but the growing number of funky special editions is making it pretty interesting. We've seen the 480-hp Juke R and the kitted out Juke Nismo, and now we have the Juke Box, a Juke that's outfitted in 19,000 watts of speakers.  Read More

Apps that transform an iOS device into a portable DJ system (such as Algoriddim's djay app) have been around for a good while now, but the restricted screen space on small devices can lead to somewhat limited mixing functionality. Budding party disc jockeys can get more control from physical deck emulators like Numark's iDJ Live, but those with an appetite for real-time mixing of music stored on more than one device have now been catered for with the upcoming release of the iRig MIX from IK Multimedia. This compact mobile mixer can auto match the tempo from any type of audio source with the tunes on a connected iOS device, features an extra input for an instrument or microphone, and comes with four free music apps.  Read More

Emulator DVS system

While traditional mixing desks can bury DJs behind bulky equipment in a dimly lit corner of the club, this transparent, 46-inch multi-touch system from software development company Smithson Martin puts the person spinning the discs - or in this case the touch display - front and center.  Read More

iDJ Live is a portable one-piece DJ rig, that incorporates the user's iDevice for live mus...

Perhaps you’ve entertained the idea of becoming a dance club DJ, but were intimidated by the thought of those expensive turntables and mixers, not to mention the logistics of lugging them around, along with stacks of LPs and/or CDs. If so, then you’re the part of the target market for Numark’s iDJ Live. The one-piece device features two turntable-like music-cueing decks, a mixer for cross-fading between tracks, and uses your own docked iDevice as its brains.  Read More
