Denon DJ has officially announced a potential game changer with the announcement of four new DJ products: the Denon DJ SC5000 Prime Media Player, Engine Prime Audio File Analysis Software, X1800 Prime Club Mixer and VL12 Prime Turntable.
Denon DJ were showing off the new kit a few months ago, but with the SC5000 Media Player their intention looks to be to break Pioneer DJ’s dominance in the DJ booth with the new player and kit.
The Denon DJ SC5000 comes with a high definition, multi-touch display for easy and fast navigation, which enables gesture and swiping movements (as on an iPad) for complex DJ interaction with the player itself.
The SC5000 can also analyse audio files on the fly, has dual-layer decks with dedicated outputs and a rugged 8" jogwheel with central display that shows the current track or custom artwork. It is the first media player to be able to analyse both beatgrid and musical key onboard the unit too.
