Mojaxx Reviews The Mastersounds Clarity A Audio System

MasterSounds announces the launch of Clarity A, the next generation of its Clarity audio system, building upon its predecessor’s minimalist design, manufacturing partner TPI’s military-grade heritage, and MasterSounds’ design style. MasterSounds’ founder Ryan Shaw adds, “Clarity A is the secret that we are so excited to have finally released. When we listened to what the final product had to offer, it was an indescribably proud moment. Looking at the smiles around the MasterSounds test room, I knew we had created something truly special.”

The two Cube:6 loudspeakers and Sub:8 subwoofer run as an active system, and by adding your DJ mixer, pre-amplifier, or DAC to the inputs on the Sub:8, plug and play fidelity are available, out of the box, anywhere in the world.

First Look: Serato DJ Pro 2.5.7 Update With Pioneer DJ CDJ-3000 Support

Pioneer DJ‘s latest flagship multi-player is now an official Serato accessory via the newest upgrade to Serato DJ Pro, Serato DJ Pro’s 2.5.7. Building on the legacy of the CDJ-2000NXS2, the CDJ-3000 features several powerful improvements, including an enhanced MPU, redesigned hardware components, and a 9-inch, high-resolution touch screen. However, complete control of Serato DJ Pro with the CDJ-3000 requires using HID mode, including Serato’s colored waveforms on the display.

“As clubs and festivals open worldwide, support for the CDJ-3000 has been a highly requested feature for Serato DJs.” says Chief Strategy Officer Nick Maclaren. “We’re pleased to bring this support in Serato DJ Pro 2.5.7, with the reliability and quality our professional DJs expect.”
