This was in a catalog I received over the weekend. 'Everything You Need To Be A DJ' it says. It's weird to have your profession distilled down to a few pieces of equipment. It would be like a Staples ad for a calculator and a box of pencils that said 'Everything You Need To Be an Accountant'. As someone who has some experience as a DJ, I would say there are a few more things you need that don't come in a $1,500 kit.
