American DJ’s New LED Quest Fulfills
Search For Perfect Dance Floor LED Effect

LOS ANGELES – DJs and clubs — your “quest” for the perfect LED lighting effect has come to an end, now that American DJ has unleashed its amazing new LED Quest. Powered by a massive 15 watts of heart-thumping LED power, this easy-to-operate sound-active effect shoots out bright red, green and blue rotating beams from 19 lenses to cover an entire dance floor or other large area.

Containing 1 x 5W red LED, 1 x 5W green LED and 1 x 5W blue LED (15 watts total), the LED Quest projects rich, saturated brilliantly-colored beams that look great with or without fog. Its mighty LED power, along with its 130° beam angle and 19 lenses, produce a torrent of eye-popping beams that move and rotate to the beat of the music. The beams’ movements are smooth, quick and fluid, thanks to the unit’s high-quality stepper motors. There’s even a strobe effect to add pulsating excitement and work the crowd into a real frenzy.

But even though the LED Quest is an eyeful on the dance floor, it’s not a handful to operate. Just turn it on, and this sound-active effect will start moving to the music, running on its own internal programs. A convenient sound sensitivity knob on the rear panel lets you control the degree of intensity with which it responds to the music. You can even link multiple LED Quest units together Master/Slave via XLR cable for an instant, synchronized light show over a larger area.

The LED Quest’s easy plug-and-playability is one of the things that make it a truly great DJ/club effect. So too are its low maintenance, cool running temperature, low energy usage, and budget-friendly price tag, said Scott Davies, General Manager of the American DJ Group..

“It’s one thing to have a fixture that produces a lot of action and excitement and can cover a large area. But it’s quite another if that unit is also easy and economical to own and operate,” said Davies. “That’s what makes LED Quest such a great effect – it’s more than just a fantastic disco light. DJs and entertainers will appreciate that it’s very affordable and simple to run – all you have to do is plug it in. And because it uses LEDs as its lamp source, it is easier to maintain, more energy-efficient and generates less heat than conventional halogen effects.”

With its long-life LEDs rated at 50,000 hours, DJs won’t have to go to the hassle and expense of replacing burnt-out lamps. Club owners will also save money on their electric bills, since — for all its brightness and movement — this highly efficient unit consumes only 20W of power maximum.

Another advantage of the LED Quest’s LED lamps is that they produce hardly any heat, keeping things cool and comfortable on the dance floor and allowing the unit to run all night without being shut down for duty cycles. What’s more, mobile entertainers can enjoy the convenience of being able to pack up right after the show, since they won’t have to wait for the unit to cool down.

The LED Quest comes with a hanging bracket and features multi-voltage operation – AC 100-240V, 50-60Hz. For an effect that covers such a large area, it is extremely lightweight (9 lbs.) and compact (18.25″L x 12.25″W x 12.25″H), making it ideal for mobile use as well as mounting in places where space is at a premium.

Priced well within the budgets of DJs, mobile entertainers and small clubs, the LED Quest has an MSRP of just $229.95.
