Denon DJ have released their brand new Prime range, a comprehensive collection of high end DJ equipment that aspires to become the new industry standard. The new prime series features brand new dynamic music management software that operates as the beating heart of the collection. Engine Prime is a next generation music library and analysis database that enables the DJ to import music by dragging and dropping songs or via direct integration from existing iTunes or Serato DJ collections. With this you can now organise and catalog your music in an unprecedented fashion, efficiently storing all of your treasured musical sources in one place. Once the files have been imported these music files are then analyzed, providing for an accurate Beatgrid placement and a harmonic musical key analysis. Designed for the live DJ, Engine Prime can competently handle even the largest of collections, giving you a critical edge to your performance.

The SC5000 is the prime DJ's brand new media player. Featuring a high definition, multi-touch display that enables gestures and swiping for ultimate expression and immersion. Extremely sensitive to the DJ's touch the display is immediately responsive, ideal for use within a live environment. Able to accurately analyse music files on the go, it utilises dual-layer decks with dedicated outputs, a multi-touch screen with easy and fast navigation and an 8" rugged jogwheel with central display that provides a helpful central display that highlights the current track or artwork. The first of its kind to analyse both beatgrid and musical key on board the unit, the SC5000 delivers never before seen immediacy that allows you to react and operate within a real time environment.

From media players to turntables, the VL12 Prime fills the previously empty void of a turntable that is able to act as a no compromise, all original-tooled turntable that brings together next level isolation with stunning audio performance and construction. Built from the ground up, the VL12 Prime was designed with the objective of being the quintessential DJ turntable. With a heavy duty all-metal construction, the VL12 is able to cut, scratch and blend music to absolute perfection. With adjustable pitch ( 8 percent to 50 percent) you can achieve the perfect tone every time without fail.

The Prime series X1800 mixer features creative and powerful Sweep and BPM based FX controls. Building upon the foundations of Denon DJ's precursors, the X1800 features extremely high quality, 24bit, 96kHz audio output, ensuring superb sound characteristics in any environment. With its extensive collection of features primarily dedicated to enhancing the live performance, the X1800 gives you a multitude of parameters that will help you craft a unique and memorable sound. With switchable 'Classic' or 'Isolation' modes the DJ can now efficiently express themselves through more powerful menu based EQ tools. Also featured on the X1800 is the OLED screen, which highlights the main BPM FX unit. This houses 12 high quality effects and also includes a quick-to-set Effects Quantization Touch Strip to provide the DJ with the potential to mould their sound to its uninhibited potential.

To be exclusively previewed at NAMM 2017, the SC5000 is gathering masses of attention.
