The original Bozak CMA-10-2DL mixer was the first commercially produced DJ mixer. DJs and engineers alike fell in love with the mixers functionality and the unique smoothness and warmth.
Prominent since the 70’s in so many DJ booths and especially Larry Levan’s at The Paradise
Garage, the original Bozak mixer earned its unique place in DJ history.
The legacy of Bozak lives on today; in fact most of the modern manufacturers have copied the original features in some shape or form but have never quite matched its unique sound quality. Although the mixer was available in a few different guises it is commonly felt that the product’s life was cut short and never reached its full potential for the DJ. Analog Developments has committed to carry on the pioneering development of those early days and yes, honours its DJ range with the Bozak name.
Bozak’s use of discrete components gave the mixer a unique sound that cannot be re-created with today’s integrated op-amps. Analog Developments has designed to the same exacting topology that made that early audio sound so warm, exciting and made the stereo image so dynamic.
All the Analog Developments products use high performance analogue control circuits using
individually selected discrete components. Functionality has been improved where necessary to accommodate today’s DJ’s and sound system engineers with special attention being paid to the connectivity and tactile feel of the product.
The superior dynamic response makes the control smooth and predictable whilst the Bozak frequency-dividing technology gives individual tone control, allowing the user to isolate beats, vocals and the high hat as well as adjusting the overall tonal quality. The crossover points of the EQ have been carefully selected to yield a more natural sound and to emphasise the artistry in the musical production.
