Köln Kompakt 1

Filed under Reviews

Köln Kompakt 1 Illustration

Köln Kompakt is the first CD in the famous Kompakt CD collection. Very minimalistic, the peculiar bass and infra-bass sound texture is already present in this little jewel, announcing the further success story of the Kompakt Label.

Here is the track listing:

  1. Kandis – Set Tecker
  2. Studio 1 – Sieben/Viertel
  3. Thomas & Mayer – Elbchaussee
  4. The Modernist – Apple Electronics
  5. Dr Walker & Freddy Fresh – The Moment we’ve been waitin 4
  6. Tandem – Tandem
  7. MI5 – Eng
  8. Thomas Brikmann – Auszug
  9. Pentax – Not
  10. Triple R & Emanuel – Messbecher
  11. Jürgen Paape – Anfang Januar
  12. OM 1 – Opium
  13. Dr Walker & Mr Flux

The fifth track is a lovely tune that sounds a little bit different because it could fairly be recorded by DJ Shadow, the tone of the album is minimal definitely in a low range bpm apart from a few tunes like Elbchaussee.

This album is definitely a buy!

Sennheiser HD25

Filed under DJ Headphones

When it comes to DJ Headphones you would probably act the same way as you would do for CD player. Industry has standards and again, this one is justified.

The Sennheiser HD25 is very reliable. It emphasizes very well the bass by default and sound comes crystal clear. Tightly enveloping your ears this DJ Headphones offer strong attenuation of ambient noise that make them suitable for flying.

Let’s talk about a few features you might be interested in:

  • The split headband allows you to adjust the tightness around your head.
  • They’re ultra-light.
  • The bass sound is very deep and this is great help for your Beatmatching skills!
  • You can use them with your iPod and use the adaptor to plug to your favorite mixer.
  • They come with a little bag
  • You can rotate one ear cup so that one ear only is listening, which is what you basically do all the time. This is very important because this is the main reason why other DJ Headphones get used so quickly by the torsion of the headband. The Sennheiser HD25 will not suffer that much from time just because of the last feature.

In a word: go for it!

Pioneer CDJ 2000

Filed under DJ CD Player

The latest Pioneer Pro DJ baby. Does it worth it? Tough question. I couldn’t resist anyway because I’ve been waiting so long for such gear!

This CD player is very similar to the excellent Pioneer CDJ 1000 MK3. The big improvement is really in the ability to read from USB device all kind of music format (except the recent FLAC which is more and more used by the way).

One CD player can be connected to another one (up to four of them in line) with a LAN cable and you can browse this way the USB plugged to another player.

In theory you can plug your CDJ 2000 players to a computer via a network switch and play this way any song from your entire library (WAV, AIFF, MP3 and AAC). But this functionality although described in the user manual is not available yet (will be later with a firmware update). Here comes the first disappointment.

The players come with a software called RekordBox. Don’t get excited too much, this is nothing like Serato or whatever. This is just to manage your tracks library in a smart way. The idea is to get your tunes analyzed with the software, you can tag them, store Cue Points and send them to your CDJ 2000 players. But the software is somehow not reliable yet and had one update already. (For example this messes up your MP3 tags) I would strongly recommend that you play around with a small excerpt of your library before you get all your tracks scanned by the software.

This being said the CDJ 2000 is without surprise a jewel of Pro DJ technology and in my opinion the best CD Players available in the market as the CDJ 1000 are.

This important to know that if you cannot afford such a price I would advise you to go for CDJ 1000 players than you can hook up with Serato Scratch Live and play all the tunes stored on your computer. No doubt that the arrival of the CDJ 2000 will drag the price of the MK3 down. You can also get slightly used devices for a lot less.

Don’t forget to take a look at Pioneer DJ Forums that enclose full of information.
