It's been a while since I visited my friend Makesh, who has off late shifted residence and subsequently moved into a much smaller place than where he was residing earlier. Smaller place means smaller living room, meaning Makesh was in a dilemma with regard to accommodating his Audio Rig, in the current stop gap change of residence scenario. Since he was to maintain his current set-up, he decided to do the best possible compromise, which was to scale down the speakers and avoid the subwoofer as well. With the speakers & sub moved to storage, a stop gap solution was found in the form of control 1's which fit his stop gap requirements adequately. While at it, he realised that it would make sense to dabble into computer audio as well so that he could get a feel of what was in store for him vis a vis his dedicated CD players. In comes my little Asus DAC which gives him a glimpse of what can be possible with a small outlay in return for being able to play his music in wav/flac formats. We set it up and get foobar installed as the player of choice since it is one of the most reliable and easy to use players from the plethora of players currently available, plus its free. We start off with a rather uncomfortable phase with Makesh not being convinced of going the DAC+computer route. We try different speaker placements and things improve. However, its still not getting to the place where we find ourselves satisfied. Onto fiddling some more with the settings of the foobar player and vola! we get to a point where now it all sounds nice. Time to put the feet up, have a few drinks with accompaniments and start enjoying the music. Yes, it takes a little while but being patient in these matters helps as one can achieve very good results with entry level gear which can be bought very comfortably with little outlay in exchange. All it needs is some help from your friend and a little patience.

It takes on rocket science to understand markets and how they are faring. It has also become simpler to determine and predict the steady growth of certain market segments especially when one monitors the steady investments pouring in. One such market, the INDIA DJ Expo is all set to cater to, is the Music and Entertainment market. This industry is guesstimated to grow around 30% in 2015 - 2016 taking into consideration the commercials, we hear and have witnessed cautious but intellectual investments into new sound and lighting gear into newly commissioned Night Clubs, Resto-Bar, Lounges, Cafes-Bar. Add to that the revamps happening in entertainment spaces all over India, restaurants making space for DJ booths to entertain their customers. The make over was definitely due, but now gaining reasonable speed. Another sector where we see a radical change is the numerous Music Festivals with a line-up of the best DJs both local as well as international. From a few music concerts that would seldom be held, India now boasts of a Music Festival being held in every major metro and developing cities providing an opportunity for sound rental companies to add to their existing inventory new gear to cater to the overwhelming demand of stage shows practically every week. Television shows too are bolstering the growth in business for DJ gear, Club & touring sound, entertainment lighting, stage gear, LED & Video Mapping solutions. INDIAN DJ Expo 2015 in New Delhi brings you closer to these market segments. Come exploit the potential offered at this unique platform.
