With their latest firmware update, Denon DJ has brought streaming music to the Prime 4 standalone DJ system. The Prime 4 v1.4 firmware public beta enables internet access via either WiFi or a hardwired connection. Once connected, the controller is able to stream music from TIDAL.
Registered Prime series users and members of the v1.4 public beta will receive a free, 3-month TIDAL HiFi trial subscription.
While streaming is currently limited to the Prime 4, Denon DJ plans on bringing this feature to the SC5000 and SC5000M standalone media players in the near future.

Announced in August, the SC5000M is based on the SC5000 Prime but adds a motorized platter with real, seven-inch vinyl. The device “has the potential to revolutionize the DJ media player space,” according to Mo.
Denon will begin shipping the SC5000M this fall with a price of $1,899.

Denon DJ has announced the standalone SC5000M, which has the potential to revolutionize the DJ media player space.
The device is based on the SC5000 Prime but adds a motorized platter with real, seven-inch vinyl. The SC5000M promises to provide all of the benefits of laptop-free performance, including playing music directly from a USB drive or SD card, but with an authentic vinyl experience.
The company has also added instant doubles, letting users duplicate tracks across multiple decks for beat juggling and other techniques. Combined with the dual layer function on each player, which provides two virtual decks for each physical player, the instant doubles feature should offer unique creative possibilities.
Key features of the SC5000M:
– Motorized platter with real 7-inch vinyl
– Adjustable vinyl tension for slip and scratch control
– Two variable torque settings (low and high)
– Seven-inch HD display with multi-touch gestures
– 24-bit/96kHz digital audio outputs
– Dual-layer playback with individual audio outputs
– Plays uncompressed audio formats (FLAC, ALAC, WAV)
– Eight multifunction trigger pads for cues, loops, slices, and rolls
– Customizable RGB color around the platter
– Three USB and one SD card inputs for music playback
– LAN output to link to up to four players
– Includes Engine Prime music management software
The SC5000M will ship this fall with a price of $1,899. Watch a video of Kenny Dope Gonzalez introducing the player below.

In 2017, Denon DJ released its highly anticipated Prime series of equipment. Included in the line was Engine Prime, music analysis and management software for the SC5000 player. Unfortunately, Engine Prime wasn’t compatible with Denon’s popular MCX8000 controller, which came out a year before.
