Numark Introduces DJ|iO Multi-Channel Audio Interface

Allows software-based DJs and producers to expand I/O options using USB 2.0 connectivity

Cumberland, RI – January 1, 2007. Numark, the world’s leading brand of professional DJ equipment and the driving force behind the High-Tech musical revolution, is proud to introduce their innovative DJ|iO audio output interface.

Numark’s new DJ|iO is a Windows and Mac-compatible USB 2.0 (or USB 1.1 single channel operation) audio output interface which features 24-bit audio and sample rates of 44.1 and 88.2 kHz. Designed with the on-the-go software DJ and producer in mind, the DJ|iO is compact and rugged enough to live in your gig bag, but powerful enough to provide solutions for a wide range of audio I/O needs.

The DJ|iO gives software-based DJs, performers and producers a range of options for outputting their final audio, whether in the form of a live mix or a just-completed new track. DJs and producers pass audio from their software-based application of choice through a traditional mixer (for multi-channel mixing) and output to a pair of stereo RCA connections, via a forward-thinking USB 2.0 connection.

The DJ|iO features ultra low latency audio (via ASIO drivers), with 2 independent RCA stereo outputs, a mic input with adjustable gain on stereo pair #1 and a ¼” stereo headphone output on stereo pair #2. The DJ|iO is USB bus powered and also operates with 9V DC external power supply (sold separately).

“The DJ|iO gives high-quality audio options to users at a great price,” states Numark CEO Jack O’Donnell. “Numark understands the needs of the new generation of software-based DJs and producers, and works hard to give these users products like the DJ|iO. Our goal is to help them meet their audio needs, no matter what the situation.”
