A virtual constellation of color, the new Cinco Star from American DJ will soon be playing a starring role as the centerpiece effect of mobile DJ lighting setups everywhere. That’s because this pint-sized powerhouse color ball effect can cover an amazingly wide area, yet it is extremely compact, affordable, lightweight and easy to use.

The miniature-sized Cinco Star features five rotating color balls, each of which projects 15 beams of one color onto the walls, floors and ceilings of any party venue. Emitting a total of 75 beams in five different colors, the unit provides a vast amount of room coverage as its twinkling color balls roll continuously and the base spins a full 360 degrees.

Best of all, no expertise is required to operate the Cinco Star. Just plug it in and watch its many colorful beams shoot in all directions.

“These types of easy-to-use light show centerpieces have been popular a long time—they’re one of the ultimate club/party effects,” said Scott Davies, General Manager of the American DJ Group of Companies. “Now, with a suggested retail price of just $219.95 and a net weight of only 13 pounds, the Cinco Star marks a new age of compactness and affordability for these classic color ball effects. It’s a great example of how American DJ is always looking to improve upon traditional lighting products and make them deliver greater value and usability.”

Designed for convenient transport and easy installation, the ultra-lightweight Cinco Star includes durable carrying handles and a super-sturdy mounting plate. The unit measures 15.75"L x 15.75"W x 14.25"H, small enough to fit safely in the trunk or backseat of any car. With its 13-lb. weight, it can easily be carried anywhere by DJs and mobile entertainers.

The Cinco Star comes with five bright LL-100 120-volt, 100-watt lamps, one for each color ball in the package. Each ball features an EZ-access lamp replacement door, allowing mobile DJs and other Cinco Star users to change burned-out bulbs in a flash.

The suggested retail price of the Cinco Star is just $219.95.
