Yesterday saw the poorly draped covers properly pulled off the Denon DJ SC3900. This one has had more pre-release leaks and sneak peeks than just about anything in recent memory. But enough press teasing and game playing - I've had one for a few days, and for this all too brief time have been prodding it into submission. What follows is not a review, but more of an overview, with my eye lingering on the new gubbins.
I did get to gently fondle one in the lab before Christmas, but just for 10 minutes to see if DJ Switch's endorsement was a sound one from a platter point of view. It stood up well then, and having put the various modes through their paces, I'm still happy now.
I posted the official details yesterday, but now you can read my first look feature right here. I did a few snaps to go with it, but have stopped short of a video. Mike Corlett from the Denon DJ Forum had a unit as well and shot a full 22 minutes of footage for you to look over. If you need any more answers, I have the unit until tomorrow morning, and while I did have plans for a short video showing platter performance, it would be little more than a self indulgent scratch session that Youtube trolls would tear apart. Just take my word for it that it performs more or less as close to vinyl as you can get.
I hope it gives you more answers than you had before. Any questions, Denon and myself are here to answer, but check this thread first as many have already been put to bed.
Anyway, click here for the Denon DJ SC3900 first look aka not a review.
