American Audio Introduces DX-5R4-Channel Rotary Mixer

LOS ANGELES – From classic cars to ‘70s-style fashions, the retro trend is hot today. Now American Audio has introduced a classic-style rotary mixer that will put a “blast-from-the-past” in the hands of DJs and re-mix artists who want to go retro – the DX-5R Rotary Mixer.

A 4-channel rack-mount mixer, the DX-5R features large silver rotary knobs on each of its channels, which give it the appearance of a mixer from the ‘60s or ‘70s. Not only do the retro-style knobs look great and command attention, they’ll also appeal to DJs who like the “authentic” feel of turning a rotary dial, as opposed to using channel crossfaders.

“With its large silver knobs, the DX-5R has the classic looks of an earlier mixer,” said John Brown, national sales manager for American Audio. “We decided to come out with a rotary mixer, because retro-style things have gotten so big today, and also because a lot of DJs really prefer rotary knobs to crossfaders. You might say that the DX-5R is the ‘P.T. Cruiser’ of mixers.”

In addition to rotary knobs, each of the DX-5R’s four channels has individual LED indicators. The highly-visible LEDs make it easy for DJs to manipulate channel settings in any environment.

The DX-5R is also equipped with a large Master Volume rotary knob. Additionally, there’s a 4-band rotary EQ on the master level that controls bass, mid low, mid high and treble.

Although its rotary knobs may be retro-style, the DX-5R is strictly 21st century when it comes to offering features for today’s performing DJ artists. It comes standard-equipped with a high-quality Feather Fader for smooth, quick crossfades. The DX-5R also offers Fader Q Start, when used with a compatible American Audio CD player (sold separately).

With 8 lines, 2 phono and 2 mics, the DX-5R gives DJs plenty of flexibility for configuring their gear. Other features of the DX-5R include: separate balanced outputs (Master Outs, Booth Outs and Subwoofer Outs); adjustable subwoofer frequency control; and gain level knobs for each channel.

Rack-mountable, the DX-5R is compact and lightweight for easy transportability. It measures 19”L x 7”W x 4.5” H, and weighs just 7 lbs.

At a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of just $319.95, the DX-5R Rotary Mixer is destined to become a classic.
