Denon's DN-X500 is a 4U rackmountable mobile/club DJ analog matrix mixer with rock-solid construction and superb audio fidelity. The DN-X500's 8 line and 2 phono inputs are assignable to any of 4 channels. This 8-channel input matrix routing gives you the freedom to move any source to any channel or even the same source to multiple channels for remixing. The DN-X500 DJ mixer features 4 smooth 60mm VCA channel faders for level control and a responsive 45mm VCA crossfader with contour adjustment. Independent pre-fader level meters allow you to optimize and match levels for each source, so you can be sure the transition crossfading between sources is smooth.
The Denon DN-X500 DJ Mixer also features 3-band EQ with full output kill, booth output with channel select, 2 mic inputs with talkover sensitivity and effects send/return with cue, dry/wet knob, and channel select. Plus, with the optional ACD-46 rotary fader kit, you can easily swap out any channel fader.

I might be slightly biased as my job required me to become intimately familiar with this mixer more than other models, but I've never worked with a more reliable, hard-working, extensible DJ mixer as the DN-X500. Everything you'd expect from a Pioneer, Urei, or A&H is built in to this unit, and it performs and holds up just as well if not better. I disagree with other reviewers, the buttons are fine, just not as stalwart and tolerant as some of the other components. Low-profile design makes for space-efficient rack mounting, connectors are built well (and there's a ton of 'em!). The rotary input selectors per fader are INDISPENSABLE for use by multiple DJs with CDs, vinyl, and all kinds of digital inputs to manage.
This mixer is defiantly the best by for the money. I would actually pay more for it because it's so good. In some of these reviews, i hear negatives about the buttons, i wouldn't worry about them considering Ive had this mixer for months and they've stayed solid! However everything has a breaking point and if you abuse them they will break off no matter how good of a mixer you have. This mixer also has a very good cosmetic layout that is quite simple to follow. i got used to it in a few minutes. this mixer is also small in rack size which really helped me out because i have alot of equipment in my rack. But don't let its size fool you, THIS THING PACKS A HUGE PUNCH!!! In the past Ive dealed with mixers that were not powerful enough to handle my amps. pretty much the mixer would max out far before my amps when i needed the audio to be loud. This solves the problem 100%. in fact this thing is so powerful that it has a button to reduce the power. I Defiantly recommend this mixer for any DJ, Another great product Denon! keep up the good work!
This is a great mixer with really bad buttons that wear out quick and even break off. We actually have a light switch wired into our mixer for the microphone becasuse the buttons are all broke or very very difficult to actually turn on and off.
This mixer is a middle priced pro-mixer and thus you would expect better quality from such a well known manufacturer. The sound is very good, but the quality of the cue buttons and mics buttons is very poor, thus dropping this mixer's overall quality. Two channel cues are out and the other two cues are on their way out! Both mic buttons are sticky and giving me touble, so its just a matter of time. the design of the buttons is the same. A fellow dj has the 900 with similiar cue buttons and he is having the same problem. HEY DENNON! you got a production problem!
ALL IN ALL GREAT MIXER FOR THE MONEY..... with that said you need to be gentle on the mic and cue buttons..... my 2 mic buttons are broke and also 2 other channel cue buttons are sticking..... and the cost of repair is over 50% of what the mixer cost new!
I have been a DJ for over 5 years and have gone through several mixers in my time, and the Denon 500 has been worth every penny! I have used this mixer for two years now and it has never failed me on the dance floor. The sound quality, durability, ease of use, size and most importantly the price it what sets this mixer apart from the rest. It does not have any fancy effects but you can hook up an effects processor directly into it which is 100 times better than the cheap effects other mixers give you. Denon is under pricing this mixer because looking back on it I would spend more for it.
this mixer is great for any mobile dj that needs something from a good company that works.Has plenty of inputs and outs.One thing is there is no light conexion and no mike conexion on the top of the mixer.Also this has no sound effects so if you use sound effects this is not for you, you might as well buy the 900 that comes with effects..gave it 4 stars theres always room for improvement.
This mixer has nice features, good quality and was bought at affordable price, now my mixes are precise and my stabs are "right on Point" and with the contour adjustment on the crossfader the DJ is like a mad proffesor, depending on their skills, best investment since the purchase of my amps.
The best thing of this mixer is its sound quality... I am very impressed about how my sound improved. Since I own this one and replace my old Behringer DJX.700. The Lay out of the DN X500 is very good also... the faders feel righit and gives you confidence to make killer mixes, I trully recommend this one... Its is not nesesary pay another 500 dollars to own a Pionner!
