Five-time world number one DJ Armin Van Buuren has teamed with Philips to develop a portable sound mixer and speaker system.

Philips has partnered with five-time world number one DJ Armin Van Buuren to develop a portable mixer and speaker system.

The M1X-DJ combines a DJ controller and an 80 watt sound system into one portable device. DJ Armin Van Buuren said the M1X-DJ will introduce people to sound mixing.

"Fans often ask me what equipment they should buy when they want to start mixing themselves," said Van Buuren in a statement. "A lot of kit can be expensive, so with the M1X I wanted to create something that's accessible for everybody."

An integrated DJ controller features two professional grade jog wheels, cross faders and controls for song mixing.

The M1X-DJ is compatible with Apple devices supporting its lightening connection and will work with devices wirelessly over Bluetooth. Eight D cell batteries make it possible to use the M1X-DJ outside for almost five hours.

"You can play it wherever you want, whether that's the beach, the park or your street: it's the ghettoblaster reinvented for today," said Van Buuren.

People interested in louder sound can connect the system to another M1X-DJ or to a larger stereo.

The Philips M1X-DJ Sound System is available in selected Apple, Harvey Norman and Myer stores with an RRP of $549.95.
