Today, Denon DJ released the new 1.4 firmware update for their Prime Series family of hardware. This version finalizes some features which have been teased or in beta for some time, and also brings a few unseen features to the table. Highlights include:
Tidal Integration Via Wi-Fi And Wired Connections
Users can now stream music directly to Prime Series hardware from the first of Denon DJ’s streaming partners, Tidal.
