Jay from Denon DJ was so kind to give us a first tour of the Denon DJ Prime 4, the new standalone player that has many “firsts” under its belt: a 10-inch high-resolution tiltable screen, 4 hardware DVS enabled channels, high-resolution screens in the jog wheels, a Zone feature that allows you to send audio from a playlist to a completely separated output channel…

All that for USD 1699 and EUR 1499.

The Prime 4 is quite remarkable and I will be diving into the details once I get a review unit, but for now, enjoy Jay’s explanation and let everyone in the comments what you think!

First look video

Sorry for the dark video at the start, it gets better once I switch on the GoPro.
