MasterSounds and Union Audio have teamed up to release the latest analogue rotary DJ mixer, the Radius 2.
The mixer is a compact and handcrafted product with an emphasis on the quality of sound it produces.
Andy Rigby-Jones from Union Audio said: “The main focus was on accuracy of audio reproduction, with minimal distortion, low noise floor and high headroom, aided by only using components of fine quality”.
MasterSounds founder, Ryan Shaw added: “I deal with customers on a daily basis who are interested in audio upgrades, and central to the setup is usually a rotary mixer. Going back to the '70s and the original disco era, DJs like Larry Levan of the Paradise Garage were obsessed with sound; Larry’s music choice was to play disco through a rotary mixer and a great sound system. Now people want to play their records as the original DJs did back in the '70s as there is something purer about mixing without using faders.”
The Radius 2 uses both line and RIAA inputs, features easy-reading VU meters, a responsive Master EQ/Isolator, a natural sounding hi-pass filter on each channel, as well as an AUX send/Return system for easy integration of external effects.
