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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
