I get asked about this on occasion from potential customers. I take pride in using some of the best equipment available in the DJ industry.
Denon SC3900s. There are some cases where turntables are not the best option to use, say an event outside where pollen and other particulates in the air can “gum up” a turntable needle. They also serve as a backup to my turntables incase something happens to them. I tend to use the Denons at “farms and barns” where the environment is not agreeable for turntables.
Reloop RP-8000s. Nothing feels like vinyl. The Reloops have all the guts of the celebrated Technics SL1200 turntables with a twist. The additional MIDI button controls gives me additional creative options to loop, jump to, and remix music on the fly.
Yamaha DXR8/DXS12 speakers. In 2014 I have decided to go a new route with my speaker selection and have invested in the Yamaha DXR8, a 8″ top speaker capable of 1100W of peak power (600W continuous) and the DXS12 12″ matched subwoofer capable of 950W of peak power (600W continuous) set. These are incredible speakers! I use additional DXR8 speakers for my ceremony and cocktail hour setups along with any sound reinforcement that is required.
Soundcraft Ui16. The Soundcraft Ui16 is a digital mixer that allows me tremendous freedom to walk around and fine tune the sound at every event, mix in multiple sources that can include a live band, gives me the option to record the entire event which I can hand off those files to your videographer.

Apple Macbook Pro. A die-hard laptop that is the go-to laptop of the professionals. I carry two.
Silicon Armor hard drives. Shockproof hard drive that meets US Military (MIL-STD-810G) Standards. I carry two, one cloned for backup.
Sennheiser G3 Microphones. Some of the very best microphones on the market. No compromise.
