Recognising a critical need in the professional DJ space for equipment that delivers unprecedented levels of performance, ease of use, musical file organisation and complete system synergy, Denon DJ’s Prime Series units represent the future of the professional DJ experience. Tiësto has embraced these extraordinary Denon DJ Prime Series units:

  • The SC5000 professional media player with 7-inch multi-touch display, 24-bit audiophile sound, powered by Denon DJ’s incredible Engine Prime music management software
