GCI Technologies' Gemini DJ Division is starting to put some serious muscle behind its products and it is showing at the 2011 NAMM DJ show in California. GCI has introduced the tabletop Media Controller the Gemini CDJ-700 and the rack-mounted dual Media Controller the Gemini CDMP-2700. If everything goes to plan, then these will be the first iterations in a new line of Gemini Media Controllers. Both Media Players boast CD, USB and SD Media Card Playback and knowing Gemini; the price will be just right. Not much info is available at this time, but expect DJbooth.net to provide you with full coverage and a full written review when these babies hit the market! Judging from the pictures, the CDJ-700 and the CDMP-2700 will both include full color displays and they both "seem" to be built rugged. The CDJ-700 unit looks a lot like the Pioneer offerings with a platter position LED indicator right in the middle of the jog wheel. Let's just hope that they get it right and the price is within reach. Details and Press Release (after the pics) Below.
Gemini CDJ-700 & CDMP-2700 Now Shipping!
After lots of anticipation and a couple delays, the Gemini CDJ-700 and CDMP-2700 Multi-Media players and controllers are finally shipping to market! The Gemini CDJ-700, which I used at last year's Atlantic City DJ Expo, promises to change the game with its Pioneer-like operation, full-color touch-screen display, full MIDI capabilities, and the ability to play almost any audio format. The Gemini CDMP-2700 is a compact rackmout DJ solution that would fit the Mobile DJ game like a glove. See the press release and links inside.
