Denon DJ has introduced the rack-mountable DN-D6000 Professional Dual CD/MP3 Player.
The DN-D6000 offers an MP3 feature set and Next Track Reserve with crossfade function. The MP3 playback mode fully supports MP3 capabilities including: seamless looping with B Point Trim, scratching, hot starts and MP3 effects; CBR and VBR (constant or variable bit rate) encoding up to 320 kbps; ID3 Tags (files embedded into the MP3 that display Title, Artist, Album); and MP3 File Search System (offering fast and easy file location by name).
The DN-D6000 also includes the Next Track Reserve function. This allows the DJ to store hundreds of MP3s on one disc and play them back-to-back. The DJ is able to search for a song by name and crossfade seamlessly to that file for a smooth, non-stop mix. The crossfade time is user-adjustable, and Next Track Reserve is also available for CD audio discs.
In addition to advanced MP3 functionality, the DN-D6000 includes seven essential on-board effects such as Scratch, Reverse, Brake, Filter, Flanger, Echo and the world’s first Echo Loop, which can loop a 1/4 beat up to a 8/1 beat indefinitely, allowing a DJ to overlay another track or even a new disc for a seamless crossfade mix. Other features include: quick loading Slot-In drives; 15-second On-Board Sampler with Pitch, B-Trim, Volume control and three-way playback (Loop/Single/All) edit options; Platter Effects including Drag-Start, Brake and Reverse effects that can be used for MP3 or CD audio discs; two seamless loops; B Point loop Trim; 70 mm Jog Disc with user-definable paper slipmats; and a three-way BPM counter (Automatic, Tapping, Manual).
A Platter Hold function provides Pitch Bend by the scratch disc of up to ±100 percent. Additionally, ID3 Tags are supported for MP3 files, which allow the DJ to view the Artist, Album and Title of a particular file. A real-time Instant Start (0.02 seconds) playback mechanism and 20-second Shock Proof Memory are also available.
The Denon DN-D6000 will be available in November 2004 with an MSRP of $1099.00.
