Denon SC5000 Prime

Denon SC5000 Tabletop DJ Media Player Product Spotlight

The Denon DJ SC5000 Prime represents a real paradigm shift in DJ Technology, right here, right now. This groundbreaking digital DJ Media Player has a high definition, hi-contrast display that enables multi-touch gestures for the ultimate in latency-free, tactile track navigation, load and playback. The SC5000 is also the world’s first DJ Player capable of on-board music file analysis, really empowering you with its innovative dual-layer deck capability and an 8" rugged jogwheel with central display that displays either current playing track or custom artwork.


Denon SC5000

The Denon SC5000 Prime is the first DJ media player in the world to perform detailed track analysis in-the-box. It extracts the tempo, musical key and metadata, quantizing the music to a consistent pulse. The large 7-inch display gives detailed track information and waveform overviews, while doubling as a navigation panel to cue up the perfect songs from your library.

It’s hard to miss the rugged 8-inch jog wheel that sits center stage on the Denon SC5000 Prime. Its vivid central display holds album artwork or custom logos, and the LED trim can be changed to a range of colors. Adjust the resistance torque from light to heavy using the 5-stop tension dial, and switch the jog wheel to vinyl mode for a tactile and fluid response.

Multi-touch 7-inch display

At the top of the Denon SC5000 Prime is a large, high definition, high contrast multi-touch display. This 7-inch panel can be used to navigate your library of songs connected via SD Card or one of three USB ports. Denon’s Engine Prime software analyzes compressed or lossless formats to filter them by artist, album, tempo, or musical key — it’ll even group harmonically complimentary keys together. The zero-latency waveform display is split into three frequency bands for added clarity: low (blue), mid (green), and high (white). Simply pinch to zoom in or out; or scroll the needle-drop strip to jump in at the next break.

Primed for two tracks at once

Utilizing dual-layer playback, the Denon SC5000 Prime functions as two DJ media players in one. Each layer has a dedicated output — running 24bit/96kHz — that allows you to keep one track playing while you set-up the next. When the settings are perfect, flip between layers with the press of a button and keep the music flowing. The SC5000 Prime will save your preferences for a fast reload next time you need the track. Connect up to four Denon SC5000 Primes together using the LAN Engine Link for festival rigs and synchronized collaborations.

All the tools for a creative performance

At the base of the panel you’ll find 8 multi-function trigger pads. Most standalone DJ media players provide lackluster performance options, but the Denon SC5000 Prime bucks that trend with a controller-styled approach. Get creative in your performance and use these colored trigger pads to activate Hot Cues, Loops, Rolls, and Slices on the fly.

Rest assured that they’ll be quantized to the beat-grid by the multi-core processor under the hood. That same processor enables extreme pitch and speed manipulation, without introducing the nasty sonic artifacts present with lesser hardware.

All of this is only the tip of the iceberg; so, take it to the next level today and get your fingers on a Denon SC5000 Prime.
