    Described as the first in a series of designs “to offer a no-compromise turntable isolation solution”, the TRBxM (which uses their Total Resonance Blocking technology) has been developed to remove interference from 1Hz to 450Hz, and is initially made to fit Technics’ SL range, although modifications will be available.

    “The definitive reference in turntable vibration isolation”, theTRBxM has been manufactured in England alongside TPI Aerospace to “military specifications”, presumably so it can withstand potential vibration caused by live music and large sound systems.

    Priced at £299, the TRBxM follows Mastersounds’ industry standard turntable weights and a set of beautiful rotary mixers, and will be available from the 10th September.

  • MasterSounds unveils new four-channel analogue rotary DJ mixer

    By | May 9, 2017

    Say hello to your new favourite DJ mixer.

    UK boutique audio company MasterSounds has released a new four-channel analog rotary mixer.

    The Radius 4 is an expanded version of its compact Radius 2 mixer, a two-channel analogue device launched in November 2016. It’s built by hand, and at £1,450 ($1,877), is less money than a high-end Pioneer DJ mixer.

    According to MasterSounds, the Radius 4’s analogue signal path offers “minimal distortion, low noise floor and high headroom” – in other words, very high sound quality.

    Designed by former Allen & Heath employee Andy Rigby-Jones (who worked on Richie Hawtin’s Play:Differently mixer), it also features two backlit VU meters and two microphone inputs.

    The Radius 4 is available now from the MasterSounds store, where you can find it in both black and silver variants. If its retro style isn’t to your taste, check out Meza Studios’ ultra-minimalist Model Zero mixer.

    MasterSounds and Union Audio reveal analogue rotary mixer

    By | October 31, 2016

    A thing of beauty.

    Audio accessories company MasterSounds has partnered with Union Audio to create Radius 2, a hand built analogue rotary DJ mixer.

    This new compact, portable mixer, was developed over the past twelve months by Union Audio’s Andy Rigby-Jones, who engineered Richie Hawtin’s recently launched PLAYdifferently MODEL 1 DJ production mixer and was previously head of design for the industry standard Allen & Heath Xone mixer range. MasterSounds took care of the mixer’s outer casing.

    Run by Ryan Shaw, a DJ and audiophile with a love for great sound and aesthetically pleasing design, MasterSounds’ turntable weights are now ubiquitous throughout the world. The company has also become a go-to for people looking to upgrade their turntables, including Gilles Peterson, Cosmo and Darshan Jesrani.

    Shaw said in a press release: “I deal with customers on a daily basis who are interested in audio upgrades, and central to the setup is usually a rotary mixer. Going back to the ’70s and the original disco era, DJs like Larry Levan of the Paradise Garage were obsessed with sound; Larry’s music choice was to play disco through a rotary mixer and a great sound system. Now people want to play their records as the original DJs did back in the ’70s as there is something purer about mixing without using faders.”

    The Radius 2 promises clean and dynamic sound on both Line and RIAA outputs. Its specs include easy-reading VU meteres, a master EQ, a hi-pass filter on each channel and an an AUX system for integration of external effects.

    Available in black and silver colour options, prices start at £1200 or £1350 for the even higher specification version. Click here for more information and to place an order.
