Tech Awards 2017: the Results

Check out the best DJing and production kit of the year

The DJ Mag Tech Awards 2017 was held in September, with the live-streamed event broadcasted to a global audience from our London HQ. Our panel of industry judges mulled over six categories — and there were a few surprises as to what walked away with the accolade of being the best piece of kit within the groups.

The remaining 11 categories were open to a public vote, which this year hit record numbers. All the nominated equipment and technology plays a big part in what is happening in the dance music scene, and we are happy to share the results of the votes.
