These are solid, high quality Professional direct drive DJ turntables for PRO dj's. The model can also be used for audiophile vinyl listening (read below). I suggest, it's worth to spend some time to discover its built quality level, its really pure transparent sound, its nice to control new design platter, etc. To get an understanding of what it is. I'm a DJ with a 19 years experience, playing only vinyl.
I hope I have enough experience to digest my impressions, to analyse its features, to describe the mixing process itself, to compare it to the Technics and finally - to rate this units. So that You make Your own choice or don't make it! I'm sincere and support young dj's as I've also been a young DJ once. I've opened the boxes on the 18th of May and spent around 20 hours to get familiar. I'm a very careful user, I would say a too crazy careful user, so, make sure, both decks are perfect condition.Thomann provides a 3 Year official waranty which of course, will be supplied. So, You are safe from any problems during the next 36 monthes! 1 The body is just excellent. Denon style (I also have DJ controllers). 2 The platter is really more convenient and effective to control slowering the vinyl or pushing it to spin faster.
It's more precise, and thin than a standart platter's surface. I invited my DJ comrade.
3 The sound is the best and significantly the best among all other DJ turntables, I've ever met. There's a new technology incremented. The sound is clean, transparent, very warm, I promise!
4 What I don't like is the tonearm. Probably, DENON has ordered it from a third party company. As I have experience, I just see it's a lower grade tonearm than for example the one in Technics. The needle is not jumping neither while spinning, nor while back cueing (I'm using Ortofon Concorde DJ MKII).
I'm not sure but I think that the pitch dead zone is wider than usually. But You know, it's not a dramma.
I guess - that's it. But there's no any deffect, so I won't accept the return. You can always use it. So, if You want a really high quality deck, with a really uniquely warm and nice sound, very stylish, modern and precise - take it!If You need decks to do high level, precise beat matching and keeping to records mixed for a long time, controlling its speed, and feeling nice about the process of control - take it. Cause both of us - me and my friend - suggest that it's really easy to start feeling it and doing a proper DJ job. Even for us - technics guys. Feel free to ask any questions, additional photoes, offers, etc. Below are the specs I've taken from the official DENON dj website. And please, check the website.
