Start with the right turntable when building a system. Our DJ turntables feature the technology that beginners and pros alike are looking for. Find technology like USB connectivity for connecting your turntable to a computer and mixer. Also make sure your device has a master tempo control, a reverse option that lets you get into scratching, and adjustable torque.
Many DJs need their system to be easily portable. Be sure to check out the product dimensions, including weight, before choosing.
A DJ mixer takes the sound from a turntable and sends it to your speaker system. Nowadays, many computers, tablets, and smartphones have mixer apps available. But for many DJs, there is no replacing the knobs and sliders that offer precise control over the system's volume, equalization and effects. Here are some tips to help you choose a mixer.
First, look for the number of channels available. The larger the number of channels, the more speakers, amplifiers and microphones you can connect to it. Also, make sure your mixer has a fader for precise control of the input and output of each channel. A mixer's cue system can be helpful to a DJ who wants to preview an upcoming track without interrupting the music that's currently playing. Finally, choose a mixer that offers all the special effects you'll want to add to your beats.
