The HDX was introduced in September 2005 at the Plasa Show in London and will finally start shipping soon. The new devices are also not replacing or directly competing with the HDX. The HDX is the big brother of the CDX and because of the form factor and spinning platter, both a interesting for a certain target group in the DJ market.
what it seems most interesting for is for drive-in... i always get loads of request people ask to play from their ipod's: this would be a great solution, although slightly more expensive than a 2 euro minijack-tulip plug :P
Zeer leuke foto's! Die limited edition Technics draaitafel vond ik echt super sexy :P Van die DJ bij Reloop heb ik ook foto's... die gast scratchte met zijn tong Die Numark CDIX ofzoiets vond ik trouwens best een fijne speler Van US Blaster heb je ook foto's... ik haat die gasten en dat merk echt. Die foto van die lasers is je echt goed gelukt! American Audio had ook een CD-speler waar ik (onverwacht) best tevreden over was.
Mooie foto's:d Die limited edition is wel goed gelukt om die te veranderen. De nieuwe speeltjes van numark zien er in het echt toch wel beter uit dan op foto(niet meer vooroordelen dus) Maar US Blaster is dat een OEM merk, nog nooit van gehoord om eerlijk te zijn.
