The Denon DJ MCX8000 Serato DJ controller is a true game changer from Denon DJ. The screens allow to focus on your music instead of the computer screen, and it even can work in standalone mode, using Denon’s Engine Software. Add to that a solid build, lots of input and outputs and we can only give the highest praise to this amazing effort by Denon DJ.

What We Like

  • Seamless switching from Serato DJ mode to Engine standalone mode
