Look Back at Audio Equipment------ DJ Electronics

DJ Electronics manufactured sound equipment for the Disco sector for a number of years. The early mixers were pretty basic but well built and had rotary (yes rotary) controls. The signal to noise from these mixers was not as good as you expect today, quite 'hissy', but good for the time. Later units sported crossfade and sliders. The first mixers had a paint finish (black). Later they used a durable silver finish alloy plate, returning to black again later with an anodised finish. 100watt amps were common in the early days, surprisingly other manufacturers only managed 50watt. The electronics design was well thought out and very reliable and robust. By the mid 70's they had electronic control for deck start where others simply used big switches (with the annoying 'thump' when used).
