../ 2005 NAMM Report: Denon
Denon announced three new products for their DJ line, including
the DN-S1000 Compact CD/MP3 Player, the DN-X100 Compact Performance DJ Mixer
and the DN-X300 Scratch Mixer.
Denon's new NAMM 2005 DJ products
The portable DN-S1000 Compact CD/MP3 player features a pressure sensitive platter
that can be used to mix, scratch, backspin, brake, search and otherwise manipulate as if it were an analog turntable. The DN-S1000 features another world's first from Denon,
Next Track Reserve with Crossfade. With the capability to store hundreds of MP3 files on one CD, Next Track Reserve now makes it easy for DJs to
crossfade to another song within the same disc for a smooth non-stop mix. The DN-S1000 also includes essential
onboard effects such as Scratch, Reverse, Brake, Filter, Flanger and Echo Loop, which can
loop a 1/4 beat up to a 8/1 beat indefinitely, allowing a DJ to overlay another track or even a new disc for a seamless crossfade mix.
Other useful features include: 2 seamless loops, B-point loop trim, user-definable paper slipmats and a 3-way BPM counter (Automatic, Tapping,
Manual). ID3 tags are supported for MP3 files, which allow a DJ to view the Artist, Album and Title of a particular file. A real-time
Instant Start (0.02 seconds) playback mechanism and 20-second Shock Proof Memory ensure instant audio playback and uninterrupted performance.
The Denon DN-S1000 is now shipping with a MSRP of $499.00.
Denon is also revealed two new 2-channel Performance DJ Mixers. The new DN-X300
is a dedicated scratch mixer, and the portable DN-X100, the smallest professional-quality DJ mixer available today, is designed to work
with Denon's new compact DN-S1000 CD/MP3 player. The Denon DJ DN-X100 and DN-X300 Performance Mixers carry suggested retail prices of
$299 and $499, respectively.
