Denon DN-S5000

Posted 12 years ago by


The Denon DN-S5000 has many features that set it apart from its competitors.  The most notable being its rotating platter and its ability to play two songs from the same CD!  Overall the DN-S5000 comes at a great price and offers enough features to satisfy any DJ.

Staff Review

The Denon DN-S5000 CD Turntable has some very impressive features distinguish it from other cd turntables.  For example, the Platter not only enables real time scratching, but is motorized and spins at 45 RPM.  By placing a record-like plastic disc on top (included), it gives the illusion of actually using a turntable and record, which is sure to please die-hard vinyl fans.  Another great feature of the Denon DN-S5000 CD Turntable is the ability to play two songs from the same CD!  This means you can mix with only one DN-S5000, sending one song to each of the two included outputs!  In addition to this, you also get the Hot Disc function which allows you to keep playing a song for 35 seconds after you eject the disk.  This will leave you time to cue up the next track. The DN-S5000 is also features MP3 playback with a free downloadable upgrade on Denon's website.  Lastly, the S5000 has 2 samplers (about 15 seconds recording time each), key correction, +/-4 to +/-100% pitch control, and a memory that can store seamless loop info, cue points and pitch preference for over 5000 tracks.
