The Denon DJ SC5000 is a true multimedia player, accepting USB media and SD cards. It has a magnificent high-definition multitouch display that works just like a tablet, and for the first time on a DJ media player, it has 8 performance pads build right in. There is much, much to like here.

What We Like
The screen: big, functional, and easy to use thanks to multitouch support
The jog wheel: extremely rugged, and the center display not only looks good, it can display valuable information
The performance pads: long overdue to be integrated into media players, “CDJ” DJs can finally have access to the same performance features that controller DJs have.
The dual layer playback feature: play 2 tracks at the same time on 1 deck, with separate audio out. Means that in theory, you only need 1 SC5000.
What We Like Less
The fact we don’t own a pair
