Armin van Buuren teams with Philips on all-in-one sound mixer

An integrated DJ controller, 80 watts of power and five hours of portable battery life

Five-time world number one DJ Armin van Buuren has teamed with Philips to develop a portable sound mixer and speaker system.

The M1X-DJ combines a DJ controller and an 80 watt sound system into one portable device. DJ Armin van Buuren said the M1X-DJ will introduce people to sound mixing.

“Fans often ask me what equipment they should buy when they want to start mixing themselves,” said van Buuren in a statement. “A lot of kit can be expensive, so with the M1X I wanted to create something that’s accessible for everybody.”

An integrated DJ controller features two professional grade jog wheels, cross faders and controls for song mixing.

The M1X-DJ is compatible with Apple devices supporting its lightening connection and will work with devices wirelessly over Bluetooth. Eight D cell batteries make it possible to use the M1X-DJ outside for almost five hours.

“You can play it wherever you want, whether that’s the beach, the park or your street: it’s the ghettoblaster reinvented for today,” said van Buuren.

People interested in louder sound can connect the system to another M1X-DJ or to a larger stereo.

The Philips M1X-DJ Sound System is available in selected Apple, Harvey Norman and Myer stores with an RRP of $549.95.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
