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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

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.
