[NAMM] DDS Multi Format Media Player
Numark announced DDS, a Professional Multi-Format DJ Media Player, which is available now.
Designed for mobile DJs who want to locate their music and playback from a variety of media sources, DDS applies a CD-player style of controls to a wide range of media. DDS is a rack-mount, multi-media control deck for use with hard drives, CD/DVD drives, thumb drives, iPods and USB card readers.
"DJs can quickly and easily access any track in their library or any connected device, as DDS gives them fast track access with text search using the click knob or included keyboard," Numark said.
DDS has USB ports that enable DJs to connect a USB device for compatibility with many media formats. They can play, mix and scratch CD audio with a connected drive as well as MP3, WAV and AAC (unprotected) files from hard drives, thumb drives, data CDs, SD cards and iPods. Three USB ports give DDS wide-ranging connection options that are ever further expandable using standard USB hubs. Once connected, DJs can play two tracks simultaneously, including two songs from the same iPod.
DDS can also help DJs transition from CD to hard drive. DDS can rip music from CD straight to hard drive, even while it’s playing.
Pricing & Availability
DDS is available from DJ and pro audio retailers at an MSRP of $799.99 and an estimated street price of $499.99.
