Denon SC5000 firmware update, nu met Rekordbox library support

R2D2 / 11 november 2017

Denon probeert Pioneer al jaren van de troon af te stoten als het gaat om high end dj gear. Nu is dat nooit gelukt en met de komst van de Rekordbox software was Pioneer de concurrentie weer een stapje voor, probeer maar eens een library in te lezen op een niet Pioneer apparaat. Denon brengt echter met een nieuwe firmware update voor de SC5000 het importeren van een Rekordbox library naar de SC5000.


Direct import of rekordbox® database highlights the new firmware’s greater functionality.

Cumberland RI, USA (November 2, 2017)—Denon DJ (, a leading manufacturer of premium DJ products and solutions, today announced that their revolutionary SC5000 Prime media player has received a significant upgrade with new Engine Prime v1.0.3 firmware. The new firmware will give DJs performance enhancing pitch resolution, and most importantly, will now import rekordbox® files and database content directly into the SC5000.

A quick re-­cap of the stunning Denon DJ SC5000 Prime media player: Winner of two DJ Mag Tech Awards for ‘Innovative New Product’ and ‘Ultimate Club Deck,’ the SC5000 Prime sets a new standard for ease of use and comprehensive creative features. It is a professional unit with 7-­inch multi-­touch display that enables gestures and swiping for the ultimate DJ expression and immediacy of interaction. Adding dual-­layer playback on a single unit, making it possible to mix a full DJ set on just one player, plus on-­board trigger pads for expressive live performance, the SC5000 represents the future of professional DJ performance, right here, right now.

The new 1.0.3 firmware delivers two important upgrades, which significantly improve the SC5000’s operational effectiveness:

•   Direct import of rekordbox® database — automatically and elegantly converts hot-­cues, saved loops and playlists into Engine format, directly within the SC5000 player

•   Adjusted pitch resolution for more accurate BPM setting during DJ performance

The new 1.0.3 firmware is a solid indication of Denon DJ’s commitment to continuous improvement for their revolutionary Prime Series equipment.

Digital DJ Tips says, “This [the SC5000] is the singularly most impressive piece of DJ technology we’veever reviewed and ushers in a new era of DJing.”

The 1.0.3 firmware will be part of SC5000 Prime media players starting in November 2017.

U.S. retail pricing for the SC5000 Prime is $1899. It is available globally now.
