The equipment package included a 3Khz PA system and monitors, a Mackie 1604VLZ mixing console, four Shure UHF radio mic kits, a Lexicon PCM80 digital effects processor, two Denon DN-C630 CD players, two Technics SL1210 turntables and a Pioneer DJM600 DJ Mixer.
In the master class room, FX's Kevin Jacobs once again worked a setup of two Mackie SRM450 speakers, a Mackie 1604VLZ mixing desk, a Shure UHF radio headset kit, four AKG 451 table mics, a Pioneer DVD656 DVD/SACD player, two Technics SL1210 turntables and a Pioneer DJM600 DJ mixer.
