Things We Love: Putting the World on Commute

When I was first asked to pick my favorite B&H items for our Things We Love project, I was at a loss. Not because I thought I’d lack in material, but just the opposite: I couldn’t narrow it down. You see, here at B&H we’re fortunate enough to enjoy excellent access to products, and I’ve done my part to help the company I call home by pouring into it a substantial percentage of my salary and getting lots of cool stuff in return.

Coolest Electronic Gear of 2016

The year 2016 is almost over and we’ve had a number of exciting and innovative technologies released this year that promise inspiration for the producer, DJ, and electronic musician.

Gift Ideas for Your Favorite DJ

Any time we head into a holiday season, you may be searching for gifts for that special someone. If they are a DJ professional or enthusiast, consider the wide selection of gear at B&H, for any application and budget. Perhaps you are looking for an all-in-one controller that comes with software, or you’re more the “old-school” type who is looking for two turntables and a mixer. There are also digital media decks (CD players) and digital vinyl solutions that bridge the gap between the old school and new school.

DJ Tips: Hope for the Best, Plan for the Worst

I’ve spent the past decade producing events and DJ’ing in a variety of environments. From boat parties to the high desert, I’ve learned some valuable lessons along the way. It doesn’t matter what type of equipment you use, or how experienced you are. If you are heading out to play a gig, make sure you have everything you need. There’s nothing worse than showing up to an event only to find that the promoter didn’t follow through on the technical rider, or the sound engineer has only one RCA cable that’s being held together by electrical tape.

Multi-Room Wireless Audio Systems

At the beginning of 2013, I wrote an article about all the latest home and portable entertainment announcements that were made during CES 2013, in Las Vegas. Searching for a thread that tied the whole show together, I suggested that “total connectivity” was the pervasive theme of the year’s show. The influence of smartphones, tablets, and mobile device apps was ubiquitous.
