Denon DJ has just announced a new flagship player the SC5000, and a new flagship direct drive turntable called the VL12, so its only fitting that they also announce their new flagship top-tier DJ mixer called the X1800. The new X1800 has four channels, on-board effects, dual-USB ports for easy changeovers, an OLED display for effects controls and more. The USB ports are not yet certified to work with Traktor or Serato, but this may come to pass sometime in the future. For now the new Denon Engine software will work perfectly with the X1800 and up to four SC5000 decks for a seriously powerful club-ready setup. We'll definitely get these in the lab for the review treatment soon enough so stay tuned. For now, check out the full press release and more info below.
