The Denon DJ SC5000 Prime media player represents a groundbreaking evolution in DJ technology. The digital DJ hybrid media player uses a 7" high definition, a display that allows the user to use multi-touch gestures for brilliant latency-free, tactile, track navigation, load, and playback.

Serato DJ and Rekordbox Compatable

Denon's SC5000 supports Serato DJ Controller Mode as well as Rekordbox DJ Imports. The SC5000 can boast being the world’s first DJ Player with the ability of on-board music file analysis that actually empowers the user, especially when using the dual-layer deck capability alongside the 8-inch jog wheels with a central display that shows current playing track information or custom artwork.

The latest firmware update brings fantastic new Serato DJ functionality to the SC5000 Prime Player. Previously, the SC5000 only supported Serato DJ export playlists, now you can actually use the player as a fully-fledged Serato DJ Controller. This update is crucial for those who wish to utilize Serato's digital DJ functionality, within the DJ booth whilst still maintaining full use of the SC5000's standalone features. Connect your laptop and browse your Serato crates, use effects such as hot slice, hot cues, echoes, tape delays etc. This is a huge update for Serato users to say the least, and if that was enough the player now supports Rekordbox playlist imports meaning users don't need to change their music management software to use these media players.

Innovative Engineering

The SC5000 Prime is powered by “Engine Prime” a dedicated, multi-core internal processor and Denon DJ’s latest version of their music librarian software, offering you direct access to convenient performance features, allowing you to work as your most creative self. Denon’s aim is to help pave your creative way and work intuitively alongside your workflow. 

Customise your DJ Tech

Exclusive to the Denon SC5000 is the eight multifunction trigger pads delivering unique creative expression for hot-cues, loops, slices and roll playback, all of which are backed up and locked down thanks to the SC5000’s stupidly accurate beat grid. Up to four SC5000 Media Players can be linked together via LAN networking for beautifully synchronised data transferring between players, plus the user is now granted access to enhanced BPM and FX possibilities when using “Engine Connect” protocol to work alongside Denon DJ’s new X1800 Prime 4-channel mixer.

Creative freedom

Once you’ve inserted a USB stick or SD card, the SC5000 remembers any previously entered DJ preferences, making sure that inside the “Engine Prime” eco-system, the player can recall every one of your performance settings and preferences. This means any previously performed cue points, loop regions, playback history or preparation folders are saved to the SC5000 Prime. This Media Player wants to work with you while still granting you creative freedom. 

You can visually customise the SC5000’s 8-inch, touch capacitive, jog wheel LEDs with a choice of primary colours. Also, you can use your own DJ logo or track artwork to be displayed on the magnificent central display. The featured touch screen allows an elegant zoom-in and zoom-out function for the big, vibrant track waveforms, bringing you the pinnacle of musical timeline visualisation. 

Audiophile Routing

The SC5000 Prime’s unique dual-deck playback facility that literally makes the unit 2-decks-in-1 and with dedicated outputs for each layer, bringing you unlimited music playback options with the ultimate in sonic and mix controls. The audio outputs are 24-bit/96kHz for the highest possible sound quality and, of course, the Denon SC5000 Prime plays all uncompressed audio formats (Incl.
