New Denon Mixer : DN-X600

While i was scouring the web hunting down info on the new Traktor Update, and the new Traktor Controller (sorry nothing yet hahaha, maybe in few hours!) - i came across this: The new Denon DN-X600

The DJM400 look-alike boasts some pretty impressive effects with nice one-decimal-place bpm (versus whole rounded numbers on the djm400) and also has a built in 4in/4out audio interface! Hmm... Interesting stuff indeed... best of all it is INNOFADER PRO Compatible! Thats good news for some wicky-wicky goodness :D

The DN-X600 2-Channel Digital Mixer will be available fall 2010 with a U.S. MSRP of USD$849.99. For more information, please visit
