MOBILE BEAT, NIAGARA FALLS, June 27, 2005 —
Denon DJ announces the DN-D4500 professional dual CD/MP3, the successor
to the company’s award-winning DN-D4000. The rack-mountable DN-D4500
is intended for mobile and club DJ applications, and is designed to
be a sturdy workhorse with superior reliability.
Many of the DN-D4500’s expanded features support
both CD and MP3, such as Key Adjust, Auto BPM Counter and Cue Stutter.
Two Hot Starts and Seamless Loops are also now available for MP3 in
addition to CD usage; the B point of the loops can be easily adjusted
on the fly. The Hot Starts can be used as stutter points as well.
The DN-D4500 boasts wider pitch control for audio CDs
— ±24%, ±50% and ±100% supplement the standard
range of ±4%, ±10% and ±16%. MP3 pitch control
is now offered in the range of ±4%, ±10% and ±16%.
Shockproof memory is provided for both CD (20 seconds) and MP3 (100
seconds). Two-way pitch bend is available (traditional buttons or Jog
wheel) at up to 99%. Each drive features an ergonomic 50 mm Jog/Shuttle
Ring that can control either pitch bend or scan, quick jumps and frame
Enhanced MP3 support includes Frame Search, MP3 Hot Starts/Seamless
Looping, ID3 tag display for artist, title and album, support for constant
bit rate and variable bit rate decoding up to 320 kbps, and a powerful
MP3 File Search System that can quickly and easily locate hundreds of
files and folders.
Powerful CD features include a Memo function, which can
store Cue Point, Playback Pitch and Range, Pitch On/Off, Key Adjust
On/Off and Seamless Loop A and B data for later recall. Up to 1,000
points can be saved or recalled from either drive. The Brake effect
time is now user-adjustable, and CD Text support is available.
The convenient Power On Play feature allows for unattended
playback on power up — ideal for bars, clubs, restaurants and
nightclubs at opening time. Unattended relay play is possible between
the drives, with user-adjustable crossover time, an excellent feature
for smooth uninterrupted playback during cocktail hour or in banquet
Denon has made searching much easier with the new Quick
Jump feature, which can precisely jump within a track in user-definable
increments of 10/20/30/60 seconds. A large fluorescent tube display
with dot-matrix text support provides easily visible feedback to users,
and an End Of Message feature flashes the status time bar when a track
is about to end.
Other professional features include 0.02-second instant
start ability, CD-R/CD-RW disc compatibility, Fader Start Control terminal
(compatible with all Denon DJ mixers) and coaxial S/PDIF digital output.
