The latest controller by Denon DJ offers a solution for DJs looking to expand upon their existing PRIME setups.
The LC6000 PRIME provides a secondary area of audio when paired with other Denon media players. The Denon DJ website explains that the pairing “streamlines track selection workflows and expands creative capabilities without the need of a computer.”
The LC6000 PRIME runs via USB and features an 8.5-inch capacitive touch jog wheel with a full-color screen. A “smooth” 100mm pitch fader accompanies lights near the top, bottom and center to notify DJs of zero position and sync direction. Eight color-coded performance pads line the bottom of the device, adding more buttons for hot-cueing, looping and beat slicing. A fully rotational knob controls music library navigation, and a touch strip provides individual track browsing (“Needle Drop”). Reinforced “Cue” and “Play” buttons give DJs long-term protection from damage due to excessive tapping.
Denon is a Japanese electronics company founded in 1910 by American entrepreneur Frederick Whitney Horn. The company helped develop the CD-ROM format alongside Sony in 1984. The DN-2000F, Denon’s first twin-deck CD player, was released in 1993. In April 2014, inMusic Brands acquired both Denon DJ and Denon Professional from D&M Holdings.
The Denon LC6000 PRIME retails at $699. More information is available on Denon DJ’s website.
