Prestigious ‘Most Innovative’ and ‘Ultimate Club Deck’ are just the latest in a year-long string of accolades for Denon DJ’s paradigm-shattering Prime Series product family.

Cumberland RI, USA (October 3, 2017)—Denon DJ (, a leading manufacturer of premium DJ products and solutions, today announced that their revolutionary SC5000 Prime media player has won not one, but two prestigious DJ Mag Tech awards. Judged live, with DJs and artists in attendance to vote for their choice of winner, the SC5000 took the highly-coveted pole position in both the ‘Innovative New Product’ and ‘Ultimate Club Deck’ categories. There was a five-minute presentation of the unit’s powerful and creative feature set, followed by a Q&A session to give the judges the additional information they needed to assess the eventual winner. The event was livestreamed from the offices of DJ Mag’s London UK headquarters.

Denon DJ’s SC5000 Prime media player breaks new ground for ease of use and comprehensive creative features. It is a professional unit with 7-inch multi-touch display that enables gestures and swiping for the ultimate DJ expression and immediacy of interaction. Using the SC5000’s on-screen alpha-numeric search facility, DJs can quickly find, load and play what they want on the fly, without distraction or hesitation. For a simplified and faster ‘live’ workflow, DJ’s can simply insert an SD card or USB thumb drive into the SC5000, and the unit will analyze the music files, preparing them for beat-grid-based playback, alongside all other important metadata information.

The SC5000 Prime also has a secondary ‘performance layer’ with its own separate output feed to the mixer. With its dual audio outputs, it’s like having two media players in one, giving professional DJs the ultimate in flexibility and creative expression. The audio outputs themselves are 24-bit/96kHz for the very highest sound quality. The SC5000 Prime plays all uncompressed audio formats, including FLAC, ALAC and WAV, plus all popular compressed music file formats. In addition, it has eight multifunction triggers for cues, loops, slices and rolls, and an 8-inch touch-capacitive jog wheel with high-resolution screen that shows album, track and even custom artist artwork.

Paul Dakeyne, Denon DJ International Marketing Manager said, “These two incredibly influential DJ Mag Tech Awards results reflect exactly what the DJ industry, the media and artists all think of the Denon DJ SC5000 Prime: It truly represents the future of professional DJ performance. There is simply nothing like it.” He added, “I am of the firm belief that in years to come, this period will be looked back upon as an historic time, when the DJ tech industry changed forever and DJ artistry/creative performance possibilities jumped to a whole new level.”

U.S. retail pricing for the SC5000 Prime is $1899. It is available globally now.
