Active Discos has upgraded all of its lighting and sound equipment to provide the most up to date lighting and sound equipment for all of our disco setups…
One of the things I have been trying to decide on ever since I bought my First set of disco equipment in 2004 was when and if I should make the jump from CD’s to some sort of USB device for playing music. The technology has been available ever since this time but pricing and reliability has always kept me firmly in the world of CD’s.
In addition to this LED disco lighting has become more and more popular and increasing competitive over traditional halogen disco lights. LED disco lights appeal to me on many levels; the obvious selling point is no more dead bulbs, an environmental and general nuisance for mobile discos. LED Discos lighting is also light weight in comparison to traditional halogen lighting, it creates very little heat and uses very little energy, again this is an added benefit from an environmental point of view that LED lighting has over halogen lighting.
Over the years, as I have built the business and invested in additional disco rigs I have always stuck with buying identical equipment. This ensures two things, firstly if you see one of our discos in a venue and book us for your function you will get exactly the same disco elsewhere even if a different DJ is running it AND each it ensures DJ has the same make and style of equipment regardless of which rigs he uses and therefore is completely familiar with the equipment.
Buying identical equipment each time does have one major drawback; if I upgrade to a USB playback device or LED Lighting on one disco rig I have to update ALL sets of equipment on all the rigs…a costly process!
For each new full set of disco equipment I purchase I have this same tricky decision to make…do I continue to purchase effectively outdated equipment to ensure I keep all the equipment rigs identical?
With our busiest period looming (Christmas) and the prospect of having to reinvest and purchase another new disco setup the answer to this was finally “NO”!
It was a big step and one not taken lightly but the time had come to not only future proof the equipment but to provide our Customers with the most up to date, innovative and impressive LED/Laser disco lighting and Sound equipment currently available.
After careful investigation into the products available I selected the following upgraded disco lighting for all the disco rigs:
Each of our discos now consists of the following disco lighting:
1x Kam Starcluster
2 x Acme Impossibled LED Moonflower
4 x Equinox Warp Lighting Effect
And each disco now uses a DDS Numark Media Controller replacing CD players. The DDS allows the most flexibility when it comes to soft media e.g. whether it is a Laptop a Memory Stick or an IPod the DDS can play from any of these devices and has multiple USB inputs.
The good news is that all of this new upgraded disco equipment is now in full use, so when you book one of our discos and we are able to allocate one of our own DJ’s to the booking, keep an eye out for the new disco lights – I think you will definitely be impressed.
