Adding Visuality and Value To The Mix: American Audio’s DCD-PRO1000 Dual CD Player
Features New LCD Display, Amazingly Low Price Tag

LOS ANGELES: American Audio has taken digital turntabling to the next level of ease and affordability with the DCD-PRO1000, the latest model in its popular series of professional dual CD players. Equipped with digital FX, a jog wheel and all the other cutting-edge remixing tools found on the company’s acclaimed Velocity CD player, the DCD-PRO1000 also adds a new performance-enhancing feature: a bright LCD Display on each of its two deck sides.

The highly visible LCD Display provides DJs and remixers with vital information at a glance, featuring a Track Indicator, Total/Remain Time, Pitch/BPM Meter, Play/Pause/Cue Indicator, Single/Loop/Reloop and more. One exciting new feature on the LCD Display is a Visual Marker, which gives users a handy visual reference for viewing exactly where a disc is playing.

“With the digital turntable rapidly becoming the instrument of the 21st century, American Audio is committed to giving DJs and remixers the tools they need to expand their creativity to the outer limits,” said Alfred Gonzales, national sales manager for American Audio. “That’s why we’ve added an LCD Display to our newest dual CD player, the DCD-PRO1000. The display provides easy visual access to information on both decks, allowing the user to have more control than ever in manipulating sounds, tracks and mixes.”

In addition to the new LCD Display, the DCD-PRO1000 is packed with features that make it a true professional digital instrument. Among these is American Audio’s patent-pending Dual “Power Touch” interactive jog wheel system, which provides complete accuracy in Digital Scratching. Referred to as “Digital Scratching 2.0,” this feature is a technology available exclusively from American Audio. The jog wheels offer two modes of scratching: Digital Scratch; and Beat Juggle Mode, which provides the user with instant return to a set cue point when the platter is touched.

Digital Scratching is one of 9 on-board digital FX on the DCD-PRO1000. The other 8 FX are: Filter, Echo, Trans, Skid, Phase, Flanger, Pan and Bop. All FX can be easily selected at the press of a button, and can be layered over one another for endless creative possibilities, as well as mixed “on the fly.”

All of the FX come equipped with 6 Preset Parameter settings, or they can be manipulated to personal preference using the DCD-PRO1000’s Parameter Time and Parameter Ratio knobs. A Digital B.P.M. Counter makes it easy to keep the FX in sync with the music.

The DCD-PRO1000 includes all the other professional features that DJs and remixers have come to expect from American Audio CD players, such as Tempo Lock (Master Tempo); +4%, +8%, +16% and up to +100% “Hyper” Pitch Control; Seamless Loop; Reverse Play; True Instant Start; Anti-Shock Memory; and Fader Q Start (when used with compatible American Audio Q-Series Mixers). There are also 3 Flash Start Sampler Buttons per side, which can store up to a 6-second sample per button and play back that sample with or without a CD in the drive.

Along with its many professional features and innovations, the DCD-PRO1000 brings amazing dollar value to the mix. Its suggested retail price is just $1,049.95.

“Anyone familiar with the market knows this is truly an incredible price point for a dual CD player with digital FX, scratching, LCD displays and so many other professional features,” said Gonzales. “With the DCD-PRO1000, American Audio continues its tradition of delivering unsurpassed value and providing the highest quality, cutting-edge products at a price that working DJs and remixers can afford.

As ideal for the mobile DJ as it is for the club, stage or studio, the DCD-PRO1000 includes a 4-space controller (19”W x 7”H x 2”D) and can be used as either a rack mount or tabletop unit. The main unit takes 2 rack spaces and measures 19”W x 3.5”H x 10”D. The combined weight of both units is 23 lbs.

Whether used on stage, in the DJ booth or anywhere else, the DCD-PRO1000 will look as good as it performs, thanks to its sleek black brushed aluminum face plate. Other features on the DCD-PRO1000 include: Single/Continuous Play; Flip Flop (Relay Playback between both channels); Auto Cue function (48dB); and Lock Out mode for security. Frequency response is 20Hz-20KHz +/-1dB. T.H.D.: 0.03%. S/N Radio: 86dB. Over Sampling Rate: 8 times. The suggested retail price of the DCD-PRO1000 is $1,049.95.
