LiteConsole Launches New ‘élite’ Model
Popular DJ console manufacturer LiteConsole has announced the release of a new model, the LiteConsole élite. Aimed squarely at professional mobile DJs, the élite offers the unique aesthetics for which LiteConsole is known, but in lighter, flat-pack form that is even easier to setup than any previous model.

The LiteConsole élite features a powder-coated chrome effect aluminium folding frame which contains a large matt black front panel and two matt black side panels. These panels are made of very sturdy aluminium compound which can easily be branded or, if required, replaced with other suitable materials such as acrylic. The two interior shelves are made of rigid 3mm aluminium (with 80mm cable drop holes) that firmly lock into the frame which gives the élite its rattle-free sturdiness.

Also included are two specially formed shatterproof polycarbonate panels which are safely housed in the left and right side sections of the frame. These panels block any view of cables inside the console and are perfect for up-lighting effects. The upper and lower shelves have curved profiles on their front inner edges to allow light from any standard LED Par fixture to flow to the top of the console's side sections.

The élite is equipped with eight plastic feet to prevent vibration and scratching floor surfaces. To help with packing and transportation a three-strap locking harness is also provided which keeps the frame, shelves and panels safe and secure.

Introducing the élite, LiteConsole’s International Brand Director, Nick McGeachin, said, "We have always given close attention to what our primary markets require. This not only relates to our iconic aesthetic designs but also to rigidity, packing, transportation and build-up time. When flat-packed the élite measures just 1190 X 700 X 240mm, weighs less than 30kg, and the critical build-up time can be less than three minutes. The custom hinge design, in particular, is astounding. Achieving that fine balance between style and practicality is an art form!"

Options will include a padded bag, a hard-sided wheeled case and a laptop shelf that can be used either in angled or flat mode. Pricing and availability are to be announced soon.
