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.
