Keeping it brief as the products speak for themselves. Firstly the get in the mix service was outstanding, ordered my equipment late on a Monday night and it was with me early Wednesday morning, top class! Secondly the prime 4 is an outstanding piece of kit, after using pioneer for nearly 20 years, I decided to make the change and glad I did, the technology is immense, the feel of the controller is right and precise all over a a great machine.
I am really impressed with this new generation controller. It took me a while to decide between this and the new Pioneer. As a mobile DJ I am really looking forward to taking this on the road. The balance of connectivity and innovation makes it a great platform for the future.
Having waited for months for this unit I was very happy when it finally arrived, it is easily the most powerful standalone unit I have used. There are some issues to be aware of though, as of writing this (18th Aug 19) the Engine Prime software is not up to standard, it often mis-labels BPM's when analyzing tracks and the ability in the prime 4 to correct this is simply not there currently. Denon have acknowledged both of these issues and have advised that they will be resolved. I use my controllers for broadcast as well as DJing and another issue that Denon are aware of is that there i no way to currently listen to your micropone through the headphones. But with the bad bits out of the way I couldn't be happier, the touch interface is slick and responsive, the search function works well and the hardware itself is rocksolid in it's build. This unit is well worth the money and with Denon being fully behind the development of the product it is only going to get better. Streaming service via wifi are coming in a future update, along with Serato support and horizontal waveforms, all of which asked for by the customers. Well done Denon, and huge thanks to the guys at GITM for the fantastic Customer Service during the delays
