New Denon SC3900 Digital Turntable and Media Controller


Denon has announced the brand new Denon SC3900 Digital Turntable & Media Controller.
Denon has been on a roll lately with the best-selling Denon MC3000 controller and are now hoping to be the main competitor for Pioneer with the SC39000. Utilizing a completely redesigned High-Torque Direct Drive motor that mirrors the feel of vinyl exactly, the SC3900 gives classic DJs that vinyl feel while using CD’s, USB Drives, Software or a networked to a media server.

• 9-inch Active Platter with High Torque Direct Drive Motor
• Media Server for "Engine" Software
• Player Link Network — File Share between Networked SC3900
• Playback Direct from USB / PC / CD
• Fully Mappable MIDI Controller
• USB Direct Playback

DJing has progressed to a new era with the evolution of digital media. In a world that was once first dominated by vinyl, then CDs, and now the emerging USB and streaming devices, it’s time to revolutionize the DJ booth, because right now as a DJ you make a choice between DJing with a turntable, a turntable and software, or a CDJ/Controller. No one device has ever managed to give you the flexibility to choose depending on your performance, style or your audience. That is, until now.

Years of development with top international DJs has allowed Denon DJ to perfect the platter of the SC3900 for use with digital media without losing that feel of vinyl (the surface of the platter is actually a 9" vinyl disc!) – all allowing Scratch DJ champions like DJ Switch to push their performances even further than possible with a vinyl ‘record’.

"The 9-inch platter makes scratch moves more nimble by being that little bit smaller, but maintains the perfect amount of space to grip it, scratching & mixing tracks feels no different than using vinyl" –DJ Switch, DENON SC3900 endorsee and 3x World DMC Champion.

"Doing DMC-style hard-core scratch sets are made so much easier without worrying about needles & skipping records" –DJ Switch
