DJs and their DJ Equipment
Every DJ is very particular about what equipment they hire so Platinum have always invested in purchasing only the very best as used in top London Night Clubs. This allows the DJ to mix tracks together seemlessly as they are already familiar with the DJ Decks and Mixer. As well as performance, reliability is another key element to consider when hiring any DJ Equipment. If the equipment breaks down the show is over. This is why Platinum spend so much on purchasing DJ Equipment and maintaining it in accordance to I.S.O. 9002.
Disco Equipment Reliability
One of the main reasons Platinum purchase industry standard Disco Equipment, other than performance, is reliability. All the Disco Equipment is rigorously tested for total reliability and has a proven track record.
Platinum DJs carry a full set of spares to repair most problems. In the event of more technical breakdowns, Platinum’s Back-up Van and Engineer can be called out to deliver replacement Disco Equipment. A guaranteed service.

All DJ and Disco Equipment is maintained in accordance with ISO 9002 and P.A.T. tested annually (most venues insist upon this for Health & Safety reasons).
In the opinion of most Disco Equipment experts, Cerwin Vega V152 speakers are the best solution to mobile PA Systems. They are transportable with minimal detraction from sound quality. Cerwin Vega has a proven track record with bullet proof reliability, punchy bass, pleasing mid range and crystal clear top end, making them the finest Disco Speakers on the market.

Mirror Balls (24 inch) for a glitzy addition to the dance floor decor. Particularly effective with the Fog Machine.
LED Starcloths are popular DJ Booth Frontages with a twinkle effect.
Strobe Cannons are very effective when used sparingly on their own or with a fog machine and or bubble machine
