Denon is one of the leading companies in the DJ equipment market. Many models of their controllers are considered as benchmarks. The functionality and quality of the products are impressive enough.
Denon Prime 2 is one of these popular controller models. It has appeared on the market in early 2020. One of the advantages of this equipment is its ability to be used as a completely autonomous system.
The innovative product is based on the flagship model PRIME 4 and is its two-channel version. It is very important to mention that PRIME 2 has almost all the key features of PRIME 4.
This model runs on the ENGINE operating system. The workflow is also displayed on a large seven-inch touchscreen. This ensures the complete autonomy of the product. As a result, you don’t need any additional equipment such as a laptop or personal computer.
The display size of PRIME 4 is bigger, however, the amount of available visual information of PRIME 2 is smaller, so a seven-inch display is suitable enough.
PRIME 2 model has its high-quality transducers, along with large jogs and long, comfortable faders. Several drive connection options are available, including an SSD drive. StagelinQ lighting and video applications are supported. Uncompressed formats are supported and it’s possible to connect wirelessly to streaming services.
One of the biggest differences between the Prime 2 and the Prime 4 is the presence of two decks only. However, as many users have noticed, they don’t feel a strong need for them. Also, if you’re not a super professional DJ, you don’t need to worry.
