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.

Denon DJ has announced that its Prime series hardware will soon be internet-capable and integrated with a variety of music streaming services. That means that, for the first time ever, DJs will be able to stream music directly from DJ hardware without a laptop.
The following streaming platforms will be integrated: SoundCloud Go+, TIDAL, the newly launched Beatport LINK service, as well as Beatport and DJcity’s forthcoming service Beatsource LINK.
Denon DJ’s Creative Director, Paul Dakeyne, said in the press release:
“With both Wi-Fi and physical internet connection now engaged across the Prime Series hardware, plus access to the huge amount of digital music content from the industry’s premier streaming services, DJs no longer need a laptop computer. This changes everything – right here, right now!”
The Beatport LINK integration will also introduce the first-ever service that enables DJs to store tracks directly on DJ hardware and play them offline. Offline storage will be made available as part of two forthcoming plans: Beatport LINK PRO, which will allow DJs to save up to 50 tracks, and Beatport LINK PRO+, which will allow DJs to save up to 100 tracks.
Beatsource is a forthcoming music service from Beatport and DJcity for open-format DJs. It will include an a la carte download service and the Beatsource LINK streaming service, the latter of which will be integrated into Denon DJ’s Prime series hardware.
Denon DJ’s streaming integrations will be rolled out via firmware updates starting in summer.
Denon DJ has released a number of updates for its Prime Series hardware and accompanying Engine Prime music management software.
– Direct import of rekordbox playlists, hot cues, and memory loops to Engine Prime
– Speed improvements for Serato, iTunes, and Traktor imports
– On-player editing of crates and playlists
– Musical key change and key sync feature
– Increased pitch slider resolution
– Updated StagelinQ support for full integration with SoundSwitch 1.9 for lighting control
Denon also released the version 1.2 firmware for the X1800 Prime mixer. It includes improvements for adjustable brightness and screensaver mode, new microphone utility settings, and tap-tempo flexibility.
The updates are available now from Denon’s download page.
