Mobile music made easy.

Now it's easier than ever for mobile DJs and remix artists to take professional-quality digital playback and mixing gear to any gig, and plug it in to powered speakers for a killer performance. The CK-1000 MP3 from American Audio combines a superb dual CD/ MP3 player with a 2-channel mixer, all in a highly affordable, easy-to-transport deck. Once at their gig, DJs can make a quick and easy connection to a pair of powered speakers using the XLR outputs in the rear of the unit. DJs also have the option of plugging into a digital source using the CK-1000 MP3s digital output.

In addition to the enormous convenience it affords, the CK-1000 MP3 empowers DJs and digital turntablists with an arsenal of creative tools and pro features that can be used with both CD and MP3 tracks, like digital scratching, a Tap Sync BPM Counter, Tempo Lock and a Bop Effect.

Advanced Cueing with MP3 track searching by frame - as opposed to the more common by-the-second method - gives users the ability to pinpoint musical cues with a level of accuracy previously attainable only with high-end CD players.

Users can take advantage of the CK-1000 MP3's Advanced Track Search to quickly find and cue up song titles during their performances. Another distinguishing feature is Folder Search, which lets DJs organize their tracks by category and call up everything from "Wedding Songs" to "Slow Jams" to "Workout Mix" in an instant. Both the track titles and artist names are prominently displayed whenever an MP3 disc is played, and a visual marker shows clear reference points so DJs can view exactly where in the song each track is currently playing. It can be set for single or continuous play, giving DJs the flexibility to program their tunes on the fly or in advance via prepared CDs or MP3 playlists.

Other important features of the CK-1000 MP3s dual MP3/CD players include Q-Start, +10 Track Advance button, Anti Shock (20 seconds per side) and a pitch control range of +/-4%, +/-8% and +/-16%.

As a 2-channel mixer, the CK-1000 MP3 is well-equipped too. It includes a variety of handy inputs: 2 CD (built-in), 2 Line, 1 Aux and 1 Mic. An additional auxiliary input jack on the faceplate is great for hooking up portable MP3 players and satellite radio receivers. It offers Bass, Mid, Treble and Gain adjustment for each channel, as well as Master Level, Mic Level, Cue Pan and Cue Level. For visual monitoring, Stream Flow LED indicators are provided on each channel. A convenient Flip/Flop On/Off button provides Relay Playback between the two CD players.

The rear panel of the CK-1000 MP3 features balanced XLR outputs, S/PDIF digital output and 2 additional line inputs. A multi-voltage switch located on the back of the unit can be set to 115V/60Hz or 230V/50Hz, depending on the power source.

Ideal for mobile use, the highly portable CK-1000 MP3 measures just 17.75"L x 11.25"W x 4.5"H, and weighs 13 lbs.

Comments about American Audio CK-1000 Professional MP3/CD Player/Mixer:

I was TREMENDOUSLY EXCITED to purchase this unit and was TWICE AS DISAPPOINTED when I realized that it was INCOMPATIBLE with Serato Scratch Live because the FREAKING CD players do not have a LINE OUT to be able to run it into a Serato unit so that I can mix from my CDs. Words can hardly express what a disappointment that was. DJs have pretty much moved away from carrying several cases of CDs and Laptops and Serato's is how we play these days. Very disappointed in American Audio for not realizing this obvious fact. This was a deal breaker for this DJ. I'll now have to return it and find a comparable unit. DAMN !!

Really good equipment

By Franky

Comments about American Audio CK-1000 Professional MP3/CD Player/Mixer:

I used it for over 40 gigs and it never went wrong.I give it a 4.5 instead of a 5 because it dosen't have 2 master output, 1 for each cd. That mean you can't use serato or any system like that with the ck-1000.But it think the value is worth it.

nice but unreliable

By Salsa Pete

from South east

Comments about American Audio CK-1000 Professional MP3/CD Player/Mixer:

This has got to be one of the best units in value in the market. If you are like many DJ's and use your own CDR recordingds you may be in for some embarrising situations. If you try to scratch alot you screw with the cd player technical features and may experience hydro playing skips jumps & unwanted loops. Works best only with original cd products.

Comments about American Audio CK-1000 Professional MP3/CD Player/Mixer:

Good little unit, was my first buy and was pretty impressed with it. The pros were the mp3 playability, xlr outputs, bright screen, hard cover plastic casing, 100% pitch bend, and overall build quality. (comparable to a pioneer cdj case). Oh ya and I read somewhere that you couldn't scratch in mp3 mode when my unit certainly could.The cons were the occasional skipping of burnt CDR's, normal CD's worked like gold, mp3 cds skipped occasionally too. The pitch increments of +-1.5% made beatmatching a hassle at times. Sometimes the unit would output a no cd error and would do that for a bit until I would turn it upside down, maybe it was just the unit though.Overall it was a good piece of beginner equipment and would recommend to someone who just wants to start out.

Comments about American Audio CK-1000 Professional MP3/CD Player/Mixer:

I got this unit a week ago and tonight I used it for my first gig. This is a user friendly unit, very good for mixing and scratching. I recommend this for beginner DJ's for home use and for DJ parties.
