I never, ever, anticipated buying a all-in-one Prodigy FX DJ Workstation as a blind date; however, I actually put my hands on one and was Cuttin' n' Scratchin' on this unit with the aid of built in special effects. It was a must buy for the Price. It's space effecient and lightweight. I've used it for about two months as a mobile dj and I'm finding this piece of art a user-friendly-plug'n'play Device. It's 100% Compatible w/dj Software (Serato) and the effects are awesome for speed mixing and battle scratching. But if you specialize in weddings like I do, then this Unit is more than what you expect as a dj. It has a creative mind of it's own that makes you look good as a DJ.

I was excited to purchase this item due to it's compactness and features; relatively lightweight too. After using in for 2 months, the left cd deck would not eject the cd. I took it to AAA Electronics to get it fixed where it took them 4 months to get it back to me after some very lenghty phone calls, attitudes from the sales team there, and ignored calls. After getting back, I was only able to use it for 6 more months as the left cd deck does not read cds anymore. Furthermore, the plug in the back sits in its housing so loosely that it can fall out during a gig and the powers goes off. AKA dead air. Furthermore, the effects do not work with Serato. Maybe there has been a fix with this lately, but I am not aware of it. This item was a severe waste of money for me. Buyer Beware!

Attention All Dj's

By Joe

from MI.

Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

Every time I see this product advertised I feel it is my duty as a fellow Dj to report my experience with this unit. Please and I do repeat PLEASE don't buy this unit. I had nothing but problems and the customer service is not that good. The effects randomly turn on which totally kills your set and sometimes the drive will drag a bit. Do yourself a favor. Hold on to what you got for a few more gigs then do what you know in your heart you should do and go and cop the Pioneer set up!!! This unit is flawed, buggy and should be discontinued!!!

Great CD Player/Mixer

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

I got this system a few days ago and I already love it. It has loads of features and effects that are great for any beginner to intermediate level DJ. They play great and sound great. I had them playing into my JBL Eon G2's for over six hours the other day and I never heard even a slight hickup in the system. If you can't afford thousand dollar cd players and DJ mixers than this consol is the next best thing.

Prodigy FX Experience

By DJ JS3

from Detroit

Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

This is absolutely one of the best all-in-one cd/mixer console loaded with tons of features and great on-board effects. I used it with Serato Scratch Live and it performed flawlessly. My only problem is that the jog wheel is a little too sensitive when cueing or scratching. I would suggest that B-52 include a control to adjust the sensitivity of the wheel for the next model. Overall, controls are "user friendly" and straight forward. Highly recommended!!

I'm in love

By Dave

from seattle

Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

I saw this at guitar center and played with it for a while. I really liked all of the features and how well-built it is. After a while I decided to buy it and after using it for a number of gigs I won't go anywhere without it. For me it's perfect, my car is a 2-seater and it fits in the trunk so on gigs where I don't need lights or speakers I can leave my truck at home.

Could Be Better

By DJ iNFAMOUS

from Bronx, NY

Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

Its a great unit for a mobile deejay but not everyone. If you use Scratch Live or any other time code program you cant use the effects. If the Mixer dies the whole thing is useless. I'm stuck with a piece of junk.

Great buy!

By Seattle Styles DJ - Brennan

from Bellevue, Washington

Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

i bought the Prodigy FX a little over a year ago and its still running PERFECTLY. It has never shut down on me once or done anything out of the ordinary! Its an amazing deal and i totally recommend this to any DJ. The ONLY thing i noticed that could be improved was that the scratching feature had a little latency. i dont normally scratch with this because i have many other turntables i use aswell but if this is your only system and youre planning on doing some scratching, id maybe go for the NS7. its pretty much the newer version made by Numark. This, although, has its betters too! This comes with many GREAT effects and of course, its extremely reliable. Nobody wants to spend over a thousand dollars on something that will break over a little time... This was for me a great investment and i recommend it to anyone!

B-52 Prodigy FX

By Warren Sankar

from North Miami Beach, FL

Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

I bought this unit the minute I saw it at the Guitar Center in Hallandale, South Florida, back in December 2007. I fell in love with the unit and it's unique features that included the mp3 player, effects and ability to use a usb interface like torq connectiv, serato scratch, etc. I must say I was completely satisfied until I started having trouble with the left deck. I get a "DISC ERR" message when I load any cd. I tried the master reset and deck reset to no avail.It sucks having an expensive piece of equipment that does not work properly. I will contact B-52 Prodigy and check find out my options. I doubt they will fix it since there is only a one year limited warranty on the product.

Highly Disappointed

By Steven A. Scott

from Valrico, FL

Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

I bought this unit back in 2008. At the time, I thought "how genius" an all in one unit that's nice. I has been nice up until I ran into serious problems. It's been repaired twice with the same problem. I tried to have it repaired a 3rd time to no avail. I paid great money for something that hasn't lasted for at least 5 years. During the time that I'v had this product, I took very good care of this system while I had it. It still look brank new but defective. I am very disappointed and upset. I do not recommend this product to anyone. Please read this review before making the purchase. I should have done the same and now I am stuck with something that's very expensive that I can't ever use at a gig. Guitar Center should stop carrying this product.
