MP3 Playback is amazing on here, and you can scratch it too. You can have files 8 folders deep, with 255 tracks each. Combine that with the ability to "quick-mix" into another track on the disc, and you can be unstoppable, even with one CD. Plus you get full ID support, including v2.4.
The hot starts can be located anywhere on the disc, in addition to your regular cue. So you can preset a hard transition into two other tracks on the disc, and still be in a third track from the start.
It will store presets for up to 1000 tracks, including the on/off status of nearly every button on the machine, plus your two hot starts of the track. The only thing it doesn't store is the actually pitch up/down (for obvious reasons).
Digital outputs work with ALL features on, at a steady 44.1k.
This unit only gets four stars for a few reasons. The main reason, scratching accuracy can be tricky at first, but you improve over time. The platter does not move, and the only real cue tip you have is watching the seconds and frames.
Another downer is that the BPM counter seems to be off, but maybe I'm missing a feature - there are three settings to the counter (Auto/Tap/Manual Entry). However, once you find the BPM, it does change with the pitch slider, a plus but common these days.
Lastly, I haven't quite figured out how to change the slipmat/platter that ships with the unit. It looks like a very small a-wrench should work, but the manual and Denon website doesn't tell you - just the video on their site says it can be done. The reason to change it? All the photos show it as black, when it's really a shiny silver CD, which can REALLY glare when dance lighting is around you, or even overhead lighting.
Was it worth the investment? So far, yeah - I recommend these to anyone looking for a small package (same height/width of a Pioneer 100s, but half as long) with a ton of "useful" features.
If you are considering starting out as a dj these players are so affordable that you should have no trouble getting them. Im only 14 and was able to purchase it off of birthday money. The quality, durability, and versatility is unmatched by any other players in the price range.
Trust me, you will have no doubts once you own this player.
