    I've still got a pair of MK1 422a's that are going strong after 8 years and I very rarely see the limit lights on them :D

    On the Alto's.... I picked up a pair of TS212's (because they were white)...

    I've spent the weekend watching the local requests for last minute DJs and, in fairness, I can say that every request I've seen will have had a DJ allocated by an agent and it's been the DJ who has...

    The 6000 won't run from USB power alone and just switches off when the power is taken away (my old VMS was like yours and would generally run OK from USB power). The MC6000 didn't "lose" the...

    Good timing - I've had a couple of months of them :D

    Going back about 6 or 7 weeks, I had two weekends in a row where either me or my customers kicked my power out of the wall mid-gig (I did it...

    I can't think of anything less appropriate to play at a wedding, other than a certain track by The Beautiful South (Don't marry her....).

    I like music has a "Radio edit" and a "Clean amended version" (their words not mine!)

    Talking of music that would usually be considered inappropriate for a wedding, how about Dutch Trance party...

    Played it (the clean/censored version) at the last two weddings. :D Not because it was requested, just because I thought it'd go down well with the crowd (and it did).

    There have been a few occasions when standing behind the booth has become that uncomfortable when I've picked up a radio mic for announcements and resorted to using the VDJ remote app from a hidden...

    I had this last year. The couple put me facing out of their garage onto their driveway, which would have been fine except that the house and patio was about 200m to my hard left so the guests up...

    I've relaxed my wording around meetings now as well, especially in the pre-sales phase. I used to use the phrase "meet to have a chat with no obligation to use my services" and I think a lot of...

    Honestly, the playlist looks tame to me, quite a few of those tracks are ones that I'd consider warmup material (Mabel for one).

    As others have said elsewhere, music tastes seem to be getting...

    Isn't there another option here somewhere that involves ditching the dumb triacs and converting the whole lot to low voltage LEDs?

    I'm sometimes not sure if we work in a Service industry or not. I've played at Polish, Scottish, Greek and French weddings before and I still refer to 2017 as my Spanish year (2x Spanish weddings...

    Having now owned a MC6000 and a VMS5, I'd never buy a VMS5 again. Yes, the Denon is quite a lot more money, but you get workable low noise Mic inputs and it's a whole Kg lighter :D
