The Mixars LTA is a High-Torque Direct drive DJ Turntable with Super-OEM turntable DNA. Just like most of the other turntables, they do their best to feel like the iconic Technics 1200s that DJ’s love. This comes with a rubber matte finish on top and a straight tonearm. It also comes with extra line outputs for that time when you need to output to two separate mixers.
Numark released a brand new triple-screen device called the Dashboard which will allow users to connect it to any Serato DJ setup in order to view most of the valuable information DJ’s need such as waveforms, track information, effects, and more. The Dashboard has three screens that are attached to an adjustable stand and can connect to any Serato DJ controller or DVS setup that is out there. Watch our full video review after the jump.
The new Denon DS1 is a Serato DJ Digital Vinyl Interface and soundcard that will allow DJ’s to connect turntables and CD decks to an analog DJ mixer for full Serato DJ playback using noisemap (timecode) vinyl or CD’s. The DS1 comes bundled with the full Serato DJ software and two timecode vinyl & CD’s for only $300. This is great news for Serato DJ users as now there is another soundcard interface that can be purchased for less than the Rane SL offerings that tend to get really expensive really fast.
