Smallest Denon media player with professional spec? The brand new DN-S1200 weighs in at a mere 4kg's but packs in high-end features not found in much larger, more expensive units including: Slot-In CD Player, External USB Device Support, MIDI Interface Controller (PC/MAC), Internal 24-Bit Processing and USB Audio, Multi-functional Touch Sensitive Jog Disc and PS/2 Keyboard Support and Intuitive File Navigation System.
The Denon DNS1200 CD player comes complete with Denon DJ's acclaimed Music Manager Software. Among its features is a highly refined search system, which lets users navigate quickly through any MP3/ WAV files connected to the system and monitor files via the internal player. Additionally, the Music Manger allows for ID3 Tag Editing of MP3/ WAV for supported fields, scans files and saves BPM calculated results to the TAG itself, builds playlists, importing/exporting of Playlists and transporting music files to other connected devices.
The DN-S1200´s 110mm JOG Disc is constructed with an ultra high-resolution pulse and touch sensor mechanism to accurately reproduce the most subtle or swift scratching movements made by the human hand. The Jog Disc can perform other vital functions too such as, pitch bending, scanning, file searching and dry/wet control for effects. For added creative flexibility, two "hot starts" can be made on the fly and easily turned into seamless loops. Thanks to its 4 Superb Built-in Effects, DJ's can easily activate and have full parameter control with a Dry/Wet mix control of the 4 effects: Flanger, Filter (High-Mid-Low), Echo and Echo/Loop, as well as 3 Platter Effects, including Brake (adjustable in real-time), Dump (reverse sound without losing true forward time, like a radio edit), and Reverse.
For those DJ´s who perform long mix transitions and require high pitch resolution, the S1200 offers a 100mm pitch slider with .02% for the 4% pitch range and .05% for the 10/16% pitch range. 24%/50%/100% ranges are also available. So with its great quality, performance and a rack of digital features and bearing in mind where we are technology wise, it’s fairly future proof for a few years as well.
