Never ship anything packed in shredded paper, newspaper or other easily compressed materials. Chauvet is not liable for any damage caused by carriers to our product when it is not in its original packaging.

  • 7. Why did CHAUVET DJ discontinue a certain unit?

    There are several reasons why a unit is discontinued. Oftentimes, componentry is improved upon rendering original components obsolete, resulting in an upgrade. If these upgrades make the unit incompatible with the original, we may choose to discontinue the model. Demand also plays a significant part of the decision; if demand is falling, we are unable to produce the unit in quantities that make pricing reasonable.
