Audio-Technica Exhibits New Line of DJ Products
Audio-Technica (booth 15311, Level 1 ACC North) is debuting a new line of DJ products at The NAMM Show. The range includes the ATH-PRO5X and ATH-PRO7X professional DJ headphones and the AT-XP5 and AT-XP7 moving magnet DJ cartridges.
The two DJ-specific headphone models – the over-ear ATH-PRO5X (available in black and white) and the on-ear ATH-PRO7X (available in black) – feature impressive power handling, excellent isolation, robust construction and maximum comfort for long sessions. The PRO5X over-ear headphones are equipped with 40 mm drivers and offer 1,500 mW max input power for excellent audio reproduction even at high volume. They feature rotating earpieces for one-ear monitoring and detachable locking cables (3.9 – 9.8-foot coiled and 3.9-foot straight). The PRO7X on-ear headphones are equipped with 45 mm drivers and offer 2,000 mW max input power for extremely accurate sound reproduction. They include detachable locking cables (3.9 – 9.8-foot coiled and 3.9-foot straight) and premium, soft, durable earpads.
Rounding off the DJ line are two new moving magnet DJ phono cartridges. Born out of Audio-Technica’s legendary Hi-Fi heritage and developed with some of the world’s most innovative, crate-digging, DJ’s, the new cartridges combine specialist DJ requirements with superior high-fidelity sound. Both the AT-XP5 and AT-XP7 have been designed to be robust and reliable, with a 0.3 x 0.7 mil elliptical bonded stylus and a 2.0 to 4.0 grams tracking force range, offering the ultimate in tracking ability for even the widest grooves and deepest bass. This tracking ability is combined with a powerful output level, with the AT-XP5 giving 5.5 mV and the AT-XP7 giving 6.0 mV. Both cartridges feature a highly rigid, lightweight polyphenylene sulfide (PPS)/glass fibre body for minimised vibrations, and the cartridges are also designed with a luminous tip coating to give maximum visibility of the stylus tip for accurate cuing. The new DJ cartridges from Audio-Technica give DJ’s superior sound without compromise.
