NAMM: InMusic Announces New Alto, Denon, & Numark Products

By  | 

The NAMM product announcements continue to come hard and fast, and InMusic has just unveiled a bevy of new products from Alto Pro, Denon DJ, and Numark.

Alto Professional has introduced its new Radius family of wireless microphones, offering reliable, crystal-clear sound for a wide range of vocal applications. Consisting of both the Radius 100 and Radius 200 families, the new line assures users of an extremely stable wireless signal with a very low chance of dropout or interruption. The diversity receiver is the key to the microphone’s performance, utilizing two separate antenna systems that constantly evaluates each signal to select the stronger one.

The Radius 100 comes in three models: the Radius 100 (handheld microphone), Radius 100L (lavaliere microphone), and Radius 100H (headset microphone). The Radius 200 family utilizes a more sophisticated system called True Diversity, which uses two receiver sections in addition to the two antenna systems. The Radius 200 family comes in similar handheld, lavaliere, and headset versions. The Radius 100 and 200 series will be available in March. For more information, got to AltoProfessional.com

Denon DJ has announced the DS1 Serato interface and HP2000 monitoring headphones. The DS1 is a premium Digital Vinyl System (DVS) interface for Serato DJ, offering the flexibility of a digital music library with the feel and tactile response of vinyl. At the core of the DS-1 is a bi-directional audio interface with two sets of RCA stereo inputs for turntables or professional CD players. Serato DJ will mirror the control signal as users manipulate the vinyl or CD NoiseMap signal, with playback audio distributed by the DS1 to a mixer or speakers system in 24-bit quality via two sets of stereo outputs. The DS1 is smaller than most smartphones, with a rugged, all-metal construction and single USB-design that is ideal for the traveling DJs. The DS-1 will be available this Spring.
