Numark Industries has raised the bar once again with its top-of-the-line AXIS-8 CD Player. As a member of Numark's renowned Fusion Series of DJ products, this advanced tabletop CD player offers a large Scratch wheel with vinyl-style scratching and cueing, powerful onboard effects, downloadable software updates via CD, and an award-winning futuristic steel-top design based upon years of Numark research and development. 

In addition to its head-turning appearance with a rounded, three-dimensional steel face panel, the AXIS-8 is set apart by its large 130mm Scratch wheel. This wheel permits real-time scratching and fast, vinyl-style track cueing, giving CD jocks as much control as their vinyl brethren. Beyond the scratching, AXIS-8 also gives DJs reverse play and offers a long 100mm Pitch slider with control up to +/- 100%, the largest range in its class!

Other standout CD playback features include Key Lock-which can adjust tempo up to +/- 100% without changing pitch-two seamless loops with three hot stutter starts, as well as a built-in Beatkeeper with automatic synchronization. As new features are developed, the AXIS-8 can be easily updated via software downloads to CD-a world's first!

The AXIS-8's 12 onboard effects are derived from Numark's popular CDN-88 Dual CD Player, including beat-sync'd effects like flange, warp, ISO, echo, chop, slide and more. All of these effects are bolstered by direct DSP access with a Hold function. And with the

AXIS-8's onboard MIDI In/Out connections, all effects and even playback controls can easily be sync'd with other music and studio gear.

Additional  AXIS-8 features include a full 48 seconds of buffer memory to ensure the music will not be interrupted, no matter how big the bass gets. A six-way Fader/Remote start/pause or start/recue allows for direct integration with a mixer or use with an optional foot switch. And a bright, high-contrast blue LCD makes operation clear and easy.

Rounded out with a recessed rear panel, transport bay illumination light, digital and analog outputs and CD-R compatibility, the AXIS-8 stands as the ultimate CD player for professional DJs. The Fusion Series from Numark brings advanced features and award-winning design to DJs for the first time ever. 

Portable Dual CD Mixing Kit Includes Everything DJs Need

Numark Industries is proud to debut the Fusion 222 Kit, an affordable and completely portable system for mixing CDs. Comprised of two AXIS-2 tabletop CD players, a matching Matrix 2 mixer, and lightweight nylon carrying case that travels anywhere, the Fusion 222 Kit is aimed at no-nonsense DJs who want to get the job done without breaking their backs or the bank.

As the "heart" of the Fusion 222 Kit, the Matrix 2 DJ Mixer incorporates many features not usually found at its price point. In addition to a sleek Fusion-Series design with a stamped steel face panel and ergonomic layout, it gives DJs a Fader Start control of the individual CD players, individual PFL metering, 3-band rotary EQ cuts, dual BNC light connectors, a high-quality crossfader with hamster switch slope control and unique fader tracking lights, and dual headphone outputs.

The Fusion 222's AXIS-2 tabletop CD players also deliver maximum bang for the buck, with a super-large 130mm Pitch wheel, 10 seconds of Anti-shock memory, a 100mm Pitch slider with +/- 8/16% pitch control, a built-in BPM counter, and CD-R compatibility. Relay play and six-way Fader/Remote start/pause or start/recue capabilities ensure fast and professional mixing, no matter the style of music.

The entire Fusion 222 Kit comes prepackaged in a lightweight nylon case with a hidden compartment for cables and an outer compartment for headphones. A padded shoulder strap makes the Kit easy to carry, while the semi-hard case design protects the system from the rigors of nightly use.
