The History of Numark

For more than 40 years, Numark has combined an understanding of DJs’ needs with cutting-edge technologies to create products that continually lead the way. Numark has quite literally innovated its way to the top, engineering performance tools for the entire spectrum of the DJ world, from hobbyists to professionals.

One of a handful of original DJ brands, Numark was founded in Edison, New Jersey by Harry and Robert Kotovsky in 1971. At the time, Numark developed a significant following for its mixers, turntables, and speaker enclosures and was considered to be one of the leading manufacturers in the DJ industry during the age of Disco.

In the 80s the company made its mark again, introducing the world’s first mixer with a built-in sampler, the DM1775. Before the DM1775, DJs were limited to techniques like prerecording drops on a cassette and then utilizing the rewind button and counter on an external cassette deck to cue the drop. The DM1775 had the ability to record and playback samples instantly, allowing DJs to do their own drops on the fly by sampling a beat, sound effect, or even their own voice.

In 1990, Numark continued to innovate, introducing the world’s first dual-well CD player, the CD-5020. With a rack-mountable two-component design—dual CD drive below and a separate top-facing control surface above —the CD-5020 set the mold for virtually every dual CD DJ system from then on and marked a dramatic change in the way DJs interacted with music. The world of DJing had moved into what the company’s soon-to-be CEO would call “the transitional stage” from analog to digital sourcing of music.
