For the first time, attendees were able to try and purchase the latest RockStar model featuring the Ecast “Mojo” integrated core/touchscreen monitor. The production savings with the new core/monitor are passed on to distributors and finally operators, keeping the quality Rock-ola juke product at the top of the list for reliability and profitability. The new WallRock model prototype – also with the “Mojo” integrated monitor – was unveiled for the first time as well. The new WallRock will be shipping from the factory shortly.

Two CD-to-Digital Download retrofit kits for older NSM models were featured. The previously released “Performer” kit for ES-4 and ES-5 models and the prototype ES-6 kit, scheduled to be available later this Spring.
