DJ Controllers Reviews
The Denon DJ SC2900 is the new jog-wheel based multi-media playback DJ device that shares almost all of the same features and functions of the Denon DJ SC3900 which we reviewed last year. The Denon DJ SC3900 was a definite success for DJ’s who wanted the closest vinyl-feel possible, but still gave the DJ options to play music using various forms of media or computer/tablet connectivity. It only makes sense that Denon would now focus its efforts on appeasing the DJ’s who want a CDJ-like jog wheel feel.
The American Audio MXR-10 is a two-channel USB professional DJ Mixer with an internal 4-in/4-out internal DJ soundcard with additional MIDI buttons and the necessary features to let DJ’s get right into the Digital Mix. The American Audio MXR-10 feels like a professional quality mixer and there is a nice basic feature set that all DJ’s can use to manipulate the music. Watch my full HD-Video review after the jump.
The Numark Mixtrack Pro II is the newly updated two-deck/two-channel entry-level digital DJ controller produced by Numark DJ Division that comes bundled with Serato DJ Intro. The original Numark Mixtrack Pro is one of the best-selling DJ controllers of all time and for very good reason. The overall layout of the Numark Mixtrack Pro II is fairly similar to the original Mixtrack Pro, but this time the Mixtrack Pro II has a much sleeker appearance, thinner jog wheels, and the very popular 16-pad setup to control the main DJ functions.

The Pioneer DDJ-SX Digital DJ controller is the latest and greatest Flagship (top-of-the-line) professional DJ controller from Pioneer DJ division that offers the most complete control over the newly released Serato DJ software which will replace the Serato Itch software for Serato DJ controllers. The Pioneer DDJ-SX is with the new Second Generation of Pioneer DJ controllers (DDJ-WeGO & XDJ-Aero) which now dawn the new metal-top jog wheels instead of the push-top design, and they all feel like they were built better than the original DDJ’s of a few years ago.

The Pioneer CDJ-2000nexus is the new flagship Pioneer Multi-Media deck with some nice improvements over the original CDJ-2000 with the inclusion of Beat Sync, Slip-Mode, Wireless Rekordbox Integration, Perfect Traktor HID Integration, and a new updated display with Zoom Waveforms and color indicators. Check out my new update review video and writeup to see if this costly upgrade is worth the price of admission.
