The Numark NS6II combines many things of recent Numark/Denon DJ controllers (the jog wheels with center LCD screens from the Mixtrack Platinum, the touch-capacitive knobs from the NSVII and NS7III, the dual USB’s from the Denon DJ MC7000…) into a convincing offering that should please beginning and experienced DJ’s alike.

  • Price: +/- USD 800

  • Bottomline: Great upgrade of the NS6, fully featured with double USB input, hardware mixer and LCD’s build into the jog wheels.

The Numark NS6II is a worthy successor to the previous incarnation and combines all the best technology that Numark (and Denon DJ, as both are part of InMusic) has been testing out on different DJ controllers into one, solid unit.

It’s built for club use, testimony to that is the very qualitative feel and the roll bars on the front to protect the front knobs. The layout is spacious, certainly compared to the very compact NVII.

With a 4 channel hardware mixer, you can use Serato DVS with connected media players or turntables, and with the dual USB input, switching DJ’s is a breeze. All in all, a very competitive offering in this price range.

Positive
  • LCD screen built into jog wheel offers valuable information
  • Hardware mixer allows connecting external sources and Serato DVS
  • Dual USB input facilitates DJ handovers
Negative
  • We would prefer LCD screens that can also show the waveforms
