Bozak – Back From The Dead – Announces New DJ Mixer & Dedicated EQ

Bozak, the legendary DJ mixer company from the ’70s, has risen from the dead and has announced two new DJ mixers, The AR-6 and the EQ-6. Rudy Bozak unleashed the first commercially produced DJ mixer, the Bozak CMA-10-2DL, and it quickly found found a home with DJ Larry Levan’s at New York City’s The Paradise Garage, earning its sonic reputation and a place in DJ history.

The Bozak brand was purchased by UK concern, Analog Development, who claims to have designed these new mixers “to the same exacting topology that made that early audio sound so warm, exciting and made the stereo image so dynamic.”

The Bozak AR-6 is a rotary mixer that has been updated to deliver the unsurpassed sound and build quality that the brand was known for in the ’70s. The AR-6 features flexible routing, six direct phono, line or mic inputs and five auxiliary line inputs on a user selectable matrix with a balance control for each input.

The clear warm and loud headphone output with a mix control that allows the DJ to pan between the Cue or Program output or a mix anywhere between. The Headphone jack is backlit to allow you to find the socket in the dark DJ booth. Dedicated Master and Booth gain controls gives you total control over the mix with flexible stereo balanced or unbalanced options as well as post fade tape output and dedicated mono master output.

The Loop control allows the DJ to add their choice of effects or processing to the master output and the Loop/Direct switch allows the connected processor to be switched in or out at the DJ’s discretion. Used in conjunction with the EQ-6 the loop feature will take your effect control to another level. 3-band stereo EQ gives perfect overall tonal control of the mix. With its cross-over points having been carefully selected to yield a most natural sound and to emphasise the artistry in the musical production, the Bozak’s frequency dividing technology provides superior dynamic response making the control smooth and the individual tone control allows the user to EQ beats, vocals and the high hats.
