Ortofon, the world leader in high quality DJ cartridges is proud to announce the exclusive USA distribution of the Rodec brand of audio mixers – a brand known throughout the world for their uncompromising commitment to sonic excellence.

 

Rodec, a Belgian company with history dating back to 1954, is credited with developing some of the first ever DJ mixers, starting around 1970. In addition, Rodec also created amplifiers, speakers, and other equipment geared towards live sound reproduction with one common thread – their unrelenting approach to offering the absolute finest sound quality and build quality possible. Rodec is also known for the invention of the 3-band EQ per-channel, an innovation which has become a standard for virtually all DJ mixers.

 

Ortofon will begin distribution of the Rodec brand in early Q2 of 2007, with the USA debut of the Rodec Scratchbox – a battle-style mixer that follows the Rodec tradition of build and sound quality that surpasses literally every other brand on the market in the history of DJ products. Rodec products will be available only from select Ortofon dealers.

 

Ortofon A/S is a privately held company, headquartered in Denmark, with a rich history of the development of audio products dating back to 1918. Ortofon has been the leading manufacturer of phonograph cartridges, as well as mastering equipment since the mid-1940s and a manufacturer of specialized DJ cartridges since the early 1980s. Ortofon Inc, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ortofon A/S, is headquartered in New York, USA, and is located at 500 Executive Blvd Suite 102, Ossining NY 10562.
