As DJ Expo 2016 is upon us Denon DJ has gifted us with another gem of a controller…DenonDJ MC7000 . Earlier this year Denon gave us their flagship MCX8000 controller which is on the top of most wish lists for DJ’s looking for a controller. Now to fill the middle ground, Denon has released a cut-down version without Engine support and waveform displays. The MC7000 is purely a Serato based controller and the design elements show. Don’t be fooled if you think it looks like a Pioneer controller, Serato is controlling a portion of the design layouts. That said, the MC7000 will be built with pure Denon technology and robustness, guaranteed to have an all metal chassis and clean superior sound with a feel of pro grade components. And of coarse the it has Serato DVS compatibility as well as 2 usb port so that DJ’s can play B2B without having to stop the mix.The retail price is $999 so we should see a little lower once it hits the street ($849-$899).
