Numark Unveils All-In-One HDMIX DJ Rig
Numark has released the HDMIX, an all-in-one DJ unit that has slipped in under the radar. The HDMIX owes a few things to the ION iCD02KSP Digital DJ Station, a product line under the Numark umbrella, but takes that concept to the next level with advanced features.
The economical all-in-one concept is compelling, especially if your little brother needs something to keep his grubby hands off of your gear. HDMIX has all of the DJ mixer features plus a CD player with standard controls. It’s also an iPod and USB-device mixing station. And it’s a computer that plays MP3 and other digital files from its removable, upgradeable hard drive.
HDMIX has been specifically designed for mobile DJs and individuals who need a compact, portable system that can be set up in a moment’s notice. Two mic, two phono, and three line inputs, as well as balanced XLR and RCA zone outs enable you to connect anything you need to HDMIX.
