Denon DS1 Serato DJ Unboxing [Video]

The new Denon DS1 is a Serato DJ Digital Vinyl Interface and soundcard that will allow DJ's to connect turntables and CD decks to an analog DJ mixer for full Serato DJ playback using noisemap (timecode) vinyl or CD's. The DS1 comes bundled with the full Serato DJ software and two timecode vinyl & CD's for only $300. This is great news for Serato DJ users as now there is another soundcard interface that can be purchased for less than the Rane SL offerings that tend to get really expensive really fast.

The Denon DS1 is essentially a cheaper Rane SL2 that will get you well on your way to playing timecode sources with a traditional mixer. We now have the DS1 in the lab for the full review which will be completed shortly, but check out our quick Unboxing and First Impressions video to see what comes in the box.
