Ortofon introduce the new “Ortofon-Serato S-120 DJ Cartridge” with a patent pending design that will virtually “hug the grooves” of a record using a unique suspension system that the two companies have co- designed.
Serato are continuously researching how to give DJs the most accurate vinyl control of Serato Scratch Live. Vinyl tracking was a logical area for Serato to focus on as every DJ has had a needle pop out of the groove at some stage of their performance.
Working with Ortofon engineers in Denmark we were able to dramatically improve the stability thus improving the overall tracking performance. This was achieved by co-engineering a entirely new suspension system”, reports Steve West, CEO and co-founder of Serato Audio Research. “The S-120’s output is perfectly optimised for Serato Scratch Live DJ software, it also sounds great when playing and archiving records.
We are very proud to put the Serato name on this first product we have created in partnership with Ortofon. All vinyl DJs will benefit from the extreme tracking ability delivered by a revolutionary new cantilever suspension.With 4.0 gms of vertical tracking force, the Ortofon-Serato S-120 achieves an amazing tracking ability of 120m compared to the conventional at 315Hz. That is a 50% improvement on standard DJ cartridge performance.
Christen H. Nielsen, Ortofon CEO said: “We are very satisfied to see here another result of Ortofon investments in new technology. Our core competences in fine mechanics, materials, acoustics all come together in the Ortofon-Serato S-120 DJ cartridge. Working with another vinyl dedicated technology company was of immense benefit.
The product is available in Concorde and OM versions.
Ortofon | Serato S-120 Concorde, a heavy 20gm standard Concorde mount cartridge and Ortofon | Serato S120 OM host the new S-120 Stylus.
Ortofon | Serato S-120 Concorde is supplied with an extra weight to take advantage of the superior tracking ability of the Ortofon-Serato S-120 Stylus. Ortofon | Serato S120 OM is provided with matching custom head-shell with graphics that allow for easy mounting.
Shipments from the factory in Denmark will commence at the end of January

Winter NAMM is the biggest music industry event in the U.S. and the place for the latest product announcements and news from Numark. This year the stage is set to be the best ever. The excitement starts January 14 but even if you can’t make it to Anaheim, Numark has you covered
The turntable has evolved. V7 takes the incredibly precise, latency-free Serato ITCH software control, mouse-free library navigation, and high-quality audio I/O you love from NS7, and places it into a single turntable design. And the best part is that you can use V7 with YOUR mixer! Oh, and it has built-in effects controls. That’s right. Build your own setup with a pair of V7s.Read on here.
We are showing a glimpse of the future with an X7 “concept car” at the NAMM Show. This four-channel, 24-bit digital club mixer has full MIDI implementation, powerful filtering and effects, and many more performance and sound tech features. It has two USB interfaces so two DJs can connect their laptops at the same time and create seamless transitions. This ultra-premium mixer is housed in the identical metal casing to V7 so it’s a perfect pairing, and the built-in V7 Link system enables you to connect a system of X7 and two V7s to your computer using just one USB cable.
A couple of months ago, we announced NSFX, the effects controller for NS7. Well now, we’re making it easier for you to pick up the complete flagship Serato ITCH system. NS7FX contains NS7, NSFX, the integrated laptop stand, Serato ITCH software, and a whole lot more.
MIXDECK is either the world’s most advanced dual CD player or it’s the most compatible, flexible DJ system on the planet. No matter how you look at it, MIXDECK is perfect for playing CDs, controlling the integrated Traktor software, and anything in between. You can play CDs, MP3s, USB drives, iPod, and software all from this universal DJ system. It has built-in effects, external inputs, and even enables you to record your set to iPod! Get all the specs here.
Wouldn’t it be cool if Numark came out with a killer performance CD/MP3/USB/software deck? Meet NDX800. This full-sized player has a 7.75”, touch-sensitive platter, beat-sync effects, extensive looping capabilities, plus you can use it to control MIDI software! The future is here now.
One of the new features of the new Lightsounds web site is “Live Help” allowing users to communicate directly with Lightsounds staff. Live Help is generally available from Monday – Friday 10am – 5pm Sydney time, as well as some Saturdays and additional hours from time to time.
There have been, however, a few issues with Live Help. As one of the main operators of Live Help, I can tell you that there is usually a delay of up to 60 seconds before the chat windows open and chatting can start with users. Therefore, if you are waiting for Live Help, you will need to allow a minute or so before considering giving up.
Also – whether an operator is available or not, the message will ALWAYS show up saying that all operators are busy. Again, please wait for at least a minute for an operator to join the chat.
Finally, and this has happened twice today, for no reason that I can see, when an operator chooses to talk to a client, the chat window simply does not open – leaving the user waiting in limbo. Even after restarting the software, the problem does not always rectify itself.
Lightsounds is working on having these Live Help issues rectified. If you cannot get through on Live Help, or your connection goes unanswered, then either try again later, call your nearest store or email us at email@example.com.
Here’s a look at some of the new American Audio products for 2010 set to be launched at the annual NAMM show in California this month. Products include the new Radius3000 media player, DP2 digital controller and the high powered XSP series of PA speakers.
