Engineering & Performance Innovations

Powered by a dedicated, multi-core internal processor, the SC5000 runs ‘Engine Prime.’ This latest version of Denon DJ’s music librarian software is onboard the unit, offering you direct access and and convenient performance features, so you can be at your creative best. The SC5000 doesn’t stand in the way of your creativity—it works with you and gets out of the way!

Unique on the SC5000 is its bank of eight multifunction trigger pads that deliver unprecedented creative expression for your hot-cues, loops, slices and roll playback – all safely locked down by the SC5000’s insanely accurate beatgrid analysis. Up to four SC5000 Players can be LAN networked for synchronized data transfer between units, plus you get enhanced BPM and FX possibilities using ‘Engine Connect’ protocol to work with Denon DJ’s new X1800 Prime, 4-Channel mixer.

Customizable DJ Tech

Once a USB drive or SD card is inserted, the SC5000 remembers any previously entered DJ preferences, ensuring that from within the ‘Engine Prime’ eco-system, the unit recalls every one of your performance preferences and settings. This includes any previously performed track cue points, loop regions, playback history, preparation folders and of course any live, on-the-fly, track analysis. Like we said, the SC5000 works with you and gets out of the way!

Visual customization is highlighted by your choice of main primary colors for the SC5000 Prime’s 8-inch (touch-capacitive) jog-wheel LEDs, in addition to using your own DJ brand logo or selected track artwork on the beautiful central display. On the SC5000 touchscreen, elegant zoom-in and zoom-out of the big, beautiful track waveforms brings you to the pinnacle of musical timeline visualization.

giving Pioneer a run for their money
Really happy with this product. Functionality wise it takes a little bit of getting used to after using Pioneer but myself and friends (who are all Pioneer users) are impressed with the feel and build quality of the deck. It only took me a few hours of use to get to grips with it. The jog wheel is really sturdy and in our opinion feels nice than that of a CDJ 2000. The touch screen is a nice size and really responsive. The pads along the bottom feel nice & again are responsive without having to press too hard. It's also good that you can change their function. The only thing that feels a little cheap compared to Pioneer are the Cue & Play buttons. Another downside is that when moving the jog wheel whilst a tune is playing it seems to be more noticeable than on Pioneer equipment. The fact that alot of the settings are customisable and firmware is regularly upgraded makes it very appealing. For example you can change the increments in which the pitch slider increases by from as little as 0.01 up to 0.1.

Great player... When it works...
There is no denying that the SC5000 is a fantastic player in regards to its capabilities and ease of operation. Denon have managed to build in a host of great features that allow the DJ to expand their mix potential without the premium cost of their direct competitor. That being said, Denon are seriously letting themselves down with the build quality of the prime series. Since changing my rider less than 2 months ago, i have had an X1800 mixer replaced as well as 3 SC5000s. Denons customer service team is second to none and have bent over backwards in order to assist but a working DJ who needs their kit to be 100% for their gig cannot afford this amount of unreliability . A great player but only when its working correctly

swapped out my pioneer , can't beat this for value, excellent build quality and easy to use ideal with 2 of these makes mobile DJing have full 4 deck control with PRO gear and minimal space I've been waiting for this for a long time and a big bonus I don't need an expensive laptop to use ! For just over 4K the same on another industry standard setup will set you back 10k.
