Looking for DJ Equipment Options?

Dj Equipment-What You Need to Know

If you are setting out to become a be a DJ, a disk jockey, one the most challenging things you will encounter is to buy your own gear. It will be tough not because of anything else, but because DJ equipment is costly. If you want to buy all the equipment you need you will have to spend thousands of dollars. To have what you require to be a DJ you wont have to buy only on piece of equipment but many. A DJ can mix and match items of different qualities and price ranges to make the total outfit suit a budget. One of the most costly tools that you will need to purchase is a mixer. Sound mixers vary from make to make and from model to model and their price tag depends on their attributes and their quality. You can buy a DJ mixer for a couple hundered dollars to a few thousand dollars. If you are brand new to the disk jockey business, it is suggested that you only spend only a few hundred dollars. The more affordable mixers can work just as well as the more expensive ones and if you are new to DJ'ing then you should not invest too much money because you can't know how business will be. The good news is that manufacturers of quality mixers and audio equipment in general, like Numark, Gemini, Aiwa, Akai produce superior economic DJ mixers.
After the mixer you will need a turntable as well. There are different kinds of turntables available. If you are in to vinyl then you should get a traditional DJ turntable, or if you are into CD's and MP3's there is a wide selection of turntables for the new technologies that resemble the traditional ones. In general, turntables are more expensive than plain players, but there are good ones available for purchase for under $400. You can even elect to buy a direct drive turntable, but you will have to spend more money for one of these. Most DJs however prefer them as they play records faster and don't lag. Players are more affordable than turntables but have less features. DJs who like to scratch and spin records prefer the turntables because players only provide sound output like any other CD or DVD player. A new DJ should not overspend on equipment. And one item you can save money for is the speakers. Speakers are used for live performances and as a DJ if you want to minimize your costs and not have to lease any equipment in the future. In general the price tag of any speaker depends on the price of its output. There are compact woofer speakers that a DH can buy for less than $100. if you are new to the field you might think about buying a DJ pack, a DJ in a box package and save money. These packages contain everything you will need. Using cheap DJ equipment is only recommended for new DJs. If you start getting events and start making money then you should consider buying more advanced equipment.
