Electronics manufacturer Philips has announced (via Engadget) the M1X-DJ system, an iOS-centric DJ controller with various features including compatibility with both the iPhone and iPad via Lightning connector, a compact mixer, and onboard turntables. The system also supports streaming via Bluetooth, a shoulder strap, and support for Algoriddim’s popular music-mixing app Djay 2.

The Philips M1X-DJ System includes speakers that output an impressive 80-Watts of sound. Optimized for iPad® and compatible with the iPhone 5®, the system includes an Apple ‘Lightning’ connector and Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Using the djay 2 app, you can switch between tracks on your playlist or mix tracks together for a sound that is truly your own. The integrated DJ controller allows you to mix and scratch your music using two professional grade platters, cross faders and controls – just like a professional DJ would use.

Last week, Pioneer announced the “DDJ-WeGO2”, a iOS-centric DJ controller with similar features including jog wheels and an onboard mixing console. The Philips M1X-DJ will be released in November for €399 ($526).

Wouldn't the 'DJ' be blocking the output from the speakers when using this? Surely the speakers should be pointing away from the 'DJ'?

Clearly it's a product for pregnant women looking to serenade their unborn child.

the top control panel is reversible so you can point the speakers away from you and facing the crowd...

the lightning port works at whichever side you plug the device. Now unless you specifically know that the dock supports only one angle of rest...
Sure you might be able to angle it the other way but then the iPad would be blocking the DJ controls.

See image below. Not sure if they are speakers on the other side too but there are definitely speakers pointing right at your waist.

Are you suggesting that they actually need to think when designing a product?
