The Hardware, Continued
The charging contacts on both the remote and the receiver are designed to function without needing to be snapped together. The remote rests snugly against the two contact points on the receiver. Side-to-side movement is restricted by the curved sides of the receiver, preventing a loss of contact with the charger's contact points.
The remote charges on the base / wireless receiver when not in use.
Note that up to four receivers can be added to the Wireless DJ system, but only one room can be actively receiving a stream at any given time. (Add-on receivers can be purchased separately.)
A view of the Logitech Wireless DJ remote.
The remote is definitely eye catching. Constructed of lightly brushed aluminum and glossy plastic, it has a sturdy feel and a pleasant weight. It balances comfortably in either hand, placing the thumb comfortably at the perfect angle to access the most frequently used buttons. The unique mechanical jog wheel located in the center of the remote is used to scroll through the information displayed on the monochromatic LCD screen, such as song titles, artist names and so on. The LCD is lit by three blue LEDs, creating a soft blue glow. The area surrounding the LCD screen is very shiny reflective plastic with a metallic inlayed "Wireless DJ" logo.
The power button, which is also located in the area surrounding the LCD screen, is quite small (about 2mm wide) but was not difficult to press. When the remote is powered up, the LCD screen is bright and the blue text is crisp and easy to read. Unfortunately, the screen is not very responsive - as soon as you begin scrolling, the text blurs significantly. The blurring is bad enough that it becomes difficult to keep track of the text unless you stop scrolling at regular intervals to check your progress.
