As a professional DJ with over 20 years experience I thought it might be helpful if I offered a few tips to help you get the right DJ for your wedding.
This is the fifth in my series of bite sized tips.
The sound quality from the disco can have a real impact on the overall enjoyment of your wedding disco.
Is the music too harsh, too muffled or distorted.
A little bit technical but three things are important here to ask the potential DJ about:
1. The quality of their music files ideally they should be in a lossless format such as WAV (highest quality but are very large files) or a lossy format such as MP3 are encoded at a minimum of 320kbps (High quality and less storage space required as they are compressed).
2. The DJ should use a good quality audio interface. Most DJ controllers have one built in so they will most likely be fine. A DJ who uses the headphone socket plugged into the mixer is unlikely to sufficiently concerned about sound quality.
3. The quality of the speakers. There are a vast range of speakers available from a few hundred to thousands of pounds. A quality DJ will invest adequately in their speaker systems. Ask about the make and model and check online.
