    Worth every penny

    Comments about Denon DN-HC5000 and Serato ITCH Digital DJ System:

    The more I play with this thing, the more I love it. Of course it lacks some of the bells and whistles of Serato Scratch Live, but for less than 1/2 the price you can't go wrong--and it includes a great controller. The controls are set up similar to all the other Denon cd players we've been using for years, but without the hassle of changing cds. It works flawless with itunes. It even pulls your playlists over (except when running off an ipod). I've used it on both a new, fast Samsung computer and an older Macbook that just barely passes the min requirements. Both worked perfect. I'm still learning some of the things it can do, but have been thoroughly impressed daily. This past weekend I used it at a local bar for 5 hours straight and it never skipped a beat. Hook up was simple. Controller really is plug and play (20 seconds), while software takes about 5-10 minutes to load. Auto tempo/auto sync works great as long as the songs are already close on bpm. The controller is a little bit bigger than a normal Denon controller so make sure you have room in your rack. If you are a big time club dj and you want nothing but the best then pay the price for scratch and some spinning platters, but if you work on a budget and want something that does everything it's supposed to (and well), is extremely portable, and works great for small bars, coffee houses, weddings, and private parties, then this is the controller/software pkg for you. It comes with everything you need to hook it up (usb, rca cables). The power button is a little awkward to get to after it's rack mounted, but it prevents an accidental shutdown. Other websites show it as "discontinued" so I'm not sure how much longer you can get it, but if you have been waiting like I was, now is the time. The guys at Guitar Center Harrisburg are the best.
