The Denon DNS5000 is a professional tabletop CD player for the DJ market featuring a significant technological advance: a motor driven removable CD platter with a replaceable belt, that behaves much like an analog turntable. The aptly named Active Motor Platter is supported by a host of scratch and DSP functions, and provides interactive playback of program material from the twin 15 sec. onboard samplers. Disc playback support includes CD-R, CD-RW and CD-TEXT discs, and MP3 playback is also available.
The robust DNS5000 CD drive, located in the front, is a slot-loading type, user replaceable and field serviceable, and backed by a 16 sec. shock-proof memory. The unit's control surface is nicely designed, providing a comprehensive set of clearly labeled, multi-colored backlit selector buttons, made of a tactile soft rubber material, and a large, fluorescent tube display.
The DNS5000 offers the professional DJ the state-of-the-art features and intense creative possibilities of the digital realm, while restoring the familiar feel and often forgotten presence of the analog turntable, in a compact, affordable package.
