Everyone has to start somewhere. This is true for DJs taking the first tentative steps into DJing, and for those staking their claim for some market share in the DJ industry. First making a blip on the radar at NAMM 2014, US-based Epsilon-Pro specialises in cost-effective sound and light solutions, and has announced the Inno-Propak, a bundle containing a pair of DJT-1300 turntables and a mini-Innofader equipped INNO-MIX 2 mixer for $799. And it comes in black and white too.
First the words:

$800 for a very capable scratch setup — that’s not too shabby. DJ Ricky Jay certainly shows off the setup in the above video. The DJT-1300 is super OEM manufacturer Hanpin’s funkier take on the turntable market. I’ve used other manufacturer’s versions and really like them. The INNO-MIX 2 is new to me though — I thought that DJ Tech’s DIF-1S was the only budget mixer with a mini Innofader, so I’m expecting good things from this mixer.
Being a new US-based company, I’m not too clear about getting Epsilon gear elsewhere, but if you want more info, drop by the Epsilon-Pro site. They’re definitely one to keep an eye on.
