Overview

The SC2900 Digital Controller and Media Player is Denon DJ' first ever static-platter controller and media player combining the ultimate in groundbreaking design and the highest industry-quality standards. Designed with both Professional and Club DJs in mind, the Denon DJ SC2900 steps-up to the booth with a fresh take on true digital-media versatility. No longer is there a need to struggle dragging a mass of CDs to the club or through the studio doors “ the SC2900 includes playback from USB drives and offers the ability to share one USB stick over (up to) four networked Denon DJ SC2900 or SC3900s. However, traditional CD DJs and producers can still make the most of the front mounted CD slot, and pure software DJs can utilize the Traktor 2 compatibility* to mix and produce.

˜ENGINE inside™ ensures compatibility with ENGINE software “ a unique combination of software and hardware that empowers todays DJs with high-speed access and control over their extensive digital music libraries. Leaving the ENGINE software to manage the set from a USB connected, or networked, PC or MAC and the hard work down to the player itself “ reducing the need for a super-powerful computer to manage the DJs performance.

What set' the Denon DJ SC2900 apart from the conventional œclub CDJ is its leap forward in display technologies with the introduction of the ˜Eclipse™ platter with glowing LED markers that surround the circumference; enabling a very clear and elegant method of accurately displaying ˜Cue Point™ and ˜Playback™ markers. Combined with the ENGINE for iPad® App means that a networked iPad becomes the biggest and most versatile media navigation screen in the industry, giving every DJ a powerful way to manage tracks and playlists, ready to perform, all through the iPad touchscreen.

The button layout reflects that of the popular SC3900 with a bank of Loops and Cues top left of the platter for throwing down samples and top right are the navigation controls ensuring the fastest access to the DJing essentials. Similarly reflecting the same newly redesigned ˜Hard™ Cue and Play buttons with the only significant layout change to be the ˜SLIP™ button which replaces the SC3900s ˜DUMP™ button: for reverse, loop, and scratch whilst continuing playback at the same rhythm and point that would have been reached prior to pushing ˜slip™ “ an essential editing feature in the studio and the booth for dropping out inappropriate lyrics without disturbing the flow of music.

    Comments about Denon SC2900 Digital Controller and Media Player:

    I got a pair of SC2900's at a GREAT price from Guitar Center (on sale), and they are amazing players. They function as stand-alone CD players, as controllers for Traktor, or running music off of a USB stick (either running Engine or just accessing files).
    The platter is not motorized, but has a good solid feel w/ adjustable torque.
    And the units are feature rich... leave me feeling like I'm in control of the mix.

      Comments about Denon SC2900 Digital Controller and Media Player:

      First the Bad: The first one I received had a broken CD mechanism - there was something rattling around inside the unit. The "Reverse" button on the 2nd unit was not functioning. The 3rd one showed up with no issues, but I'm wary about the reliability of these players based on this experience. Also, unlike my Numark NDX400, there are audio "clicks" at the boundaries of a loop. This can be adjusted a by using the loop trim function, but an automatic "de-clicking" function would have been nice.

      OK - now the Good. Amanda in Customer Service went WAY above and beyond to get things resolved, so hats off to her. Although quite pricy, this player is a great creative tool. I'm using it to play prepared "soundscapes" into a looper. The pitch change, reverse and auto loop functions can all be used to create some wild permutations from base material.

        Comments about Denon SC2900 Digital Controller and Media Player:

        My honest opinion about these players, they are very good I must say. The good; reliability, precise jog wheel and great feedback from the Denon Forum members and staff. The not so good: it takes far too long for this device to read external media (thumb drives and portable hard drives if you have over 500 songs in each folder you create which is what most people will do if you want your music readily available in case you get a request from someone during a gig. I find this troubling but I am sure Denon will have a fix for this issue. As far as playing CDs and linking two players, it works perfect.
