        Comments about Chauvet DJ Swarm 5 FX:

        This is easily the coolest main DJ Light you can buy. It has a main crowd light, a strobe AND a laser. It's super bright, is DMX controllable or sound activated and is light enough to be mounted anywhere.

        A pair of these and some wash lights (See the new Chauvet Wash FX) and you're DJ set up is DONE.

          This light offers 3 distinct lights in one. First you get a red and green laser, white strobe and red green blue derby and since all these lights are LED it can run all night. Can be link with any DMX controller and can also be mounted or placed on the floor. This is a real hands-on product review from David @ Sam Ash Ontario.

            Comments about Chauvet DJ Swarm 5 FX:

            Chauvet really hit the nail on the head with the Swarm 5 FX, which is why it's such a difficult item to find in stock. It improves on the design of the Swarm 4 by adding a strobe and a laser to the already mesmerizing multicolor derby effect. The end result is a powerful light that no DJ or club should be without. It can be controlled via the DMX512 protocol. It is also just as effective running through its normal built in programs which include a sound-active mode. For 220 bucks, this piece is a no brainer for anyone looking to kick their light show up a notch. This is a real hands on product review from Ryan@ Sam Ash King of Prussia.

                We do 3-4 recitals with our students per year, and we like to set up a stage with lights, sound, and an audience, so they can really get a sense of what it's like to be onstage. The swarm really makes them feel like rock stars. Add a little fog, and it really amplifies the effect.

                  Why buy 3 different lights when this light can give you what you need. Set it to work automatically with sound or have it work with your other lights and program the light with a DMX controller. Get the crown going with a great looking light show as a bonus to the music you are playing.

                    A really fun light to play with! Three in one LED effect light with red and green lasers a strobe and red green blue amber and white rotating derby "swarm" effect. The price is amazing and the effect is even more impressive. Can be hooked up DMX or automated and sound activated if you aren't ready to invest in a DMX controller or software/ hardware program yet. Awesome job Chauvet! "This is a real hands on product review by EpR@ Sam Ash Ontario".
