DENON DJ EXPANDS RANGE OF MIXERS
WITH NEW DN-X500 AND DN-X900 MIXERS
— Two new DJ mixer models provide the best of both worlds: analog
and digital —
WINTER NAMM SHOW, ANAHEIM, CA, January 19, 2006
— Denon DJ, renowned provider of top-quality equipment for DJs
and clubs, is displaying two new DJ mixer models. The two new offerings,
the DN-X500 Matrix Mixer and DN-X900 Digital/Analog Matrix Mixer, are
designed to provide the best possible combination of audio quality and
features for DJs in both the analog and digital domains.
The DN-X500 is a professional 4U 19" rack-mountable
analog matrix mixer that has eight line and two phono inputs which can
be freely assigned to any of four channels. Four smooth 60 mm VCA channel
faders provide level control, and a responsive 45 mm VCA crossfader
offers contour adjustment. Independent PFL channel meters help DJs to
optimize and match levels for each source, ensuring a smooth transition
between sources when crossfading.
Each channel has a 3-band equalizer with independent EQ
kill switch (high-mid-low), and there’s also an independent EQ
off switch. Any channel, including the Master, can be pre-monitored
through the Booth Output in the same manner as with headphones, including
volume control. A powerful, clean headphone output is also provided.
The channel faders and crossfader can supply 5V pulse
triggers for starting playback with any compatible Denon DJ CD/MP3 player.
Independent 3-band Main and Aux Mic EQ is supplied, as well as independent
Cue for all channels. There is also a Mic Talkover Function with Sensitivity
Outputs include Master Out, Booth Out, Record Out and
Subwoofer/Lighting output with frequency adjust, which is ideal for
driving powered (or un-powered with amplifier) subwoofer cabinets or
as a signal feed for lighting systems.
An Effects Send/Return Control is multi-channel assignable,
and has a wet/dry control knob for setting the balance between processed
and unprocessed signals. Effect On/Off switching is included, as is
pre and post Effect Cueing.
The DN-X900 takes the DJ mixer to new heights with a groundbreaking
combination of digital and analog technologies. The DN-X900 comprises
the same feature set as the analog
DN-X500, but adds numerous digital enhancements. In addition to eight
analog line inputs and three phono switchable, the DN-X900 offers four
digital inputs on coaxial connections. Two digital outputs are also
provided in S/PDIF coaxial and TOSLINK formats.
A Track Mark feature (Track ID) allows DJs to make a new
track on a CD burner without ever removing hands from the mixer. A Zone
Output with volume adjust is also provided.
Both the DN-X500 and DN-X900 are compatible with the optional
ACD-46 Rotary Knob Kit, enabling a rotary control to be substituted
for any channel fader. Any or all four of the channel faders may be
replaced with rotary controls, making the DN-X500 and DN-X900 perfect
choices for either fader or knob-style DJs.
The Denon DJ DN-X500 is available with a U.S. MSRP of
$499.99, and the DN-X900 is available at a U.S. MSRP of $699.99.
