  • Chicago Mobile DJs and Chicago Wedding DJs preferred medium to work with is vinyl records, compact discs and computer media files.  A minimum of two devices are needed to play sound recordings. At least two are needed for alternating back and forth to create a continuous playback of music (e.g. record players, compact disc players, computer media players such as an MP3 player) .
