The Denon DJ MC6000 MK2 is a nice update to the original version. Filled with professional level inputs & outputs, it will for sure the professional mobile DJ, as it has everything from microphone inputs with EQ, duck and echo function to small but high-quality jog wheels and a “built like a tank” overall feel.

Also, the controller is Serato DJ compatible and it has a hardware mixer, so you can simply plug in your media players and/or turntables and use them with Serato DVS.

On the downside, there are no backlit velocity-sensitive performance pads on this one, so forget about the advanced performance features in Serato DJ, you will not be able to use them with the MC6000 MK2.
