Online Guides: DJ Setups

Welcome to our DJ Setups Online Advisor.

DJing has rather murky origins, and there are many people who claim to have been the first to mix two records together. Whoever really was the inventor though, the essentials of DJing have remained the same since its inception - the basic setup requires two sound sources, a device to blend them together and a method of ‘privately’ previewing the next song.

Although the standard minimum setup for a DJ is simply two ‘decks’ and a mixer, many variations on this are possible, and exactly what you need to achieve your desired setup is not always obvious - this article aims to make it easy for you to get the right equipment first time around.

Our Online Advisor extends to several pages - you can jump from section to section using the index below, or the navigation at the bottom of each page.
