About DJ Tech Direct

djtechdirect.com is a DJ kit retailer with retail stores in the centre of Birmingham at the world famous "Custard Factory" which is now the creative quarter of the UK's second city but used to be the factory that made Birds custard. Founded and run by experienced staff who are passionate about making music and DJing (with over 25 years experience between us!) we’re focused on stocking the latest and greatest products from the biggest brands in DJ and Music Technology, all at the lowest possible prices, many of which are available to demo in our Birmingham stores.

DJ Tech Direct opened its doors in 2012, and although we're a relatively new DJ store, we operate as part of Alexander Michael LTD, a successful retail group which also owns a distribution company www.audiomanogamy.co.uk and www.audioaffair.co.uk, a UK leading website for hi-fi and home audio kit with a separate store in the Custard Factory. They opened their doors in 2007, so you know youre dealing with an established, trustworthy company, with the buying power to bring you the very best deals.
