Equipment

DJ equipmentAll of the sound and lighting equipment I use is modern and state-of-the-art – offering high-quality sound reproduction. At the core of my sound system are bi-amplified, active speakers. I use HK Audio Lucas Smart by HK Audio, which produce an amazingly well balanced sound – not too much of the highs, not too much of the lows – just right. They do this with digital signal processing that delays the faster moving low frequency bass sounds just a bit so they arrive at your ear at the same time as the slower moving high treble sounds.

Driving the primary sound system, from a custom-built DJ console, is an Apple MacBook Pro laptop computer connected to high-quality digital signal processing hardware by Denon, ultra-low loss audio interconnect cabling by Mogami, and a Denon digital mixer. With built-in wireless audio broadcasting, this system can transmit sound to speakers in another room or outside at your venue.

This unique, custom-designed system, has hardware redundancy built-in to allow for quick bypass of any problem area and I always have a second ‘old school’ CD-based emergency backup sound system onsite.

I take great care to setup our system in the optimal location at your venue for excellent sound quality, overall crowd comfort, and visually attractive aesthetics. I also think you’ll appreciate the quality of sound that is produced by our wireless microphone equipment. I use a Shure SM86 wireless system. The SM86 is one of the best handheld microphones in the world and you’ll know it when you hold it in your hand and start to speak. It is amazing to watch guests relax as they begin to address the audience with an SM86 in hand during a speech. Speaking in front of a big crowd can be very unnerving and the way a microphone feels in your hand does make a difference. The solid, comfortable feeling SM86 can be depended upon to make public speaking a little bit easier.
