February 17, 2006 It was only a matter of time before the iPod found its way into serious DJ circles and the release late last year of the Numark iDJ has certainly delivered a credible and visually stunning unit. The iDJ enables mobile DJs and iPod enthusiasts to seamlessly integrate their portable music libraries with other music and sound reinforcement systems-transforming the iPod from a personal music player into a source playback device. The iDJ features zero-tolerance precision switches and knobs for a tight, precise feel, and a soft touch edge bumper that protects the unit. This full-featured mixer with dual iPod docking stations incorporates a microphone input plus both quarter- and eighth-inch headphone outputs to complete the mixing experience. With USB connectivity to both PC and Macintosh computers, the iDJ functions as a music-loading base as well. Further, the iDJ supports the limited recording capabilities of the iPod-enabling the recording of voice notes for memos, etc. Combine all this with the thoughtful turntable spindle receptacle that enables placement of the iDJ on a turntable when space is limited, and the iDJ is ready to rock.
