One of the best bits of kit unveiled at the show was the ridiculously low-priced single MP3 CD player from Numark, the ARC 3. Based on the old Axis 4 CD player, but the ARC 3 supports MP3.
It can scratch both CD and MP3 files and has some limited effects, such as twin loops. What's even more impressive is its £179 price tag.
Numark have also tweaked and basically rebadged their existing line of mixers so that the whole range now shares the same look, so check out numark.com for a full rundown on their budget kit.
