I thought this item would've been a great tool to use while Dj'ing but after one malfunction shortly after my purchase, my doubts started to mount. Sure enough after several attempts of having it fixed from prodigy the unit just became nothing but junk. They can't seem to get the CD players to work without them breaking down. Check youtube and you'll see other complaints about this product. You'll be wasting your money and become very frustrated with the company and having to deal with them.
As the other reviews have stated this is an awesome machine. I am new to being a dj. but this machine has helped me improve alot. the only complaint is that the disc get stuck sometimes and my left cd player went out about two weeks after i bought it. so all in all this is a great machine but i deffinately reccomend getting guitar centers awesome warranty. also i would not reccomend this machine if you will be using it for gigs more than 3 times a week. because if it breaks you will be outta luck for that gig!
The prodigy has done me well, but I would have been better off buying a midi controller instead, as I moved towards Serato anyways. The unit has worked fine, but right before i was about to go on a gig, my prodigy's b deck stopped working altogether. Terrible timing to say the least. I always treated my b52 well, the right deck just stopped working all of a sudden. idk why, but if you get this item, definitely pay the money for the extended warranty. Also, this is not a scratch deck. it does "scratch" but dont expect to pull off anything other than baby scratches
Okay, I bought this about 2 weeks ago and have been nothing but pleased with the performance. The features are 2nd to none, and it gives you a ton of control. The crossfading is smooth and the displays are awesome if you need to focus on the console and not your computer screen. Couple it with Traktor Scratch Duo or Pro and you've got a good set up. Easy to set up and easy to add to (i.e. turntables, effects pads, etc.). Plenty here to keep a hobbyist or a pro happy.
This unit has a good amount of features that when utilized properly can drastically improve your set. I'm a sound guy myself so EQ knobs are a big deal for me. The B-52 has very smooth knobs that make EQ manipulation easy and seamless. With that said, I must warn you that I had a major problem 4 months after purchasing this unit. My "A" channel CD player started to mess up by skipping and not properly ejecting my CD's. I have read other reviews in which this has been a problem. My recommendation is to buy this as a back up unit or as one to learn and play with at home.
The Prodigy has totally transformed me as a DJ. Its built in sound alterations and easy to use controls makes beat mixing simple and easy to do. I love the on board mixing and the ability to "kill" highs, mids, and lows. The only thing I don't like is that the jog wheel (when used for scratching) can be a bit too sensitive. Once you get used to it though the Prodigy is a great piece to have!
