DJ CD & Media Players
DJ CD & Media Players
A DJ wouldn't get very far without music to play, and it goes without saying that music has to come from somewhere! That's why DJ CD and media players are an essential part of every DJ booth, and in this section you've got plenty of those to choose from. There's support here for digital media of all kinds, as well as CDs - although they might seem outdated, you never know when it might come in handy to have the ability to play them. For instance, how many times have DJs been working parties and the clients bring up a CD asking for a certain track to be played for the evening's big dance? A complete DJ rig has the capability to play just about anything, and this section is the place to get that capability.
DJ CD and media players come in a few different formats, so you can customize your equipment to your DJing style, as well as matching your player's features to your needs. Many options, like the Pioneer CDJ-2000 Nexus Professional DJ Media Player and the Numark NDX500 USB/CD Media Player and Software Controller, come with built-in jogwheel controllers so you can spin and scratch as if you were playing the music off vinyl. There are even dual models such as the Gemini CDM-4000 Dual MP3/CD/USB Player and 2 Channel Mixer, which give you the capabilities of a twin-turntable setup along with the versatility of multi-format playback. But maybe you're just looking for playback capability without the control surfaces? In that case, check out some rack-mountable players like the Numark MP103USB USB MP3/CD Player and the American Audio Media Operator BT.
No matter which DJ CD and media players make it onto your wish list, it's safe to say you're picking out the right ones if they deliver the features you need with interfaces that work for you. Deciding what's best for your needs is something nobody can do for you, but with so many excellent players to choose from, it's easy to find the perfect fit. If you're stumped, try reading up on some reviews or browsing the top sellers and best-rated models for some inspiration! You'll be ready to rock soon enough.
