The Denon DN-X1600 is a 4 channel mixer that is on the higher end of the price scale from Denon mixers. It has USB and MIDI in and out connections on it, you can also use it on your PC or your Mac. The Denon DN-X1600 has over 14 effects on, all of them are solid but nothing to make you want to run out and buy the DN-X1600 over. You cannot rack the DN-X1600 and it does not have a built in playback feature.


Setting up the DN-X1600 is semi difficult depending on what other gear you are going to have it working with. There are a lot of inputs on the back of the unit and you will have to be pretty technical in order to figure it all out. Or you can look through the manual which is a pretty thick book, it is very lengthy and not straight to the point.


The DN-X1600 is very quiet and does not generate any hissing sounds, it does not even get too warm if you are using it for long periods of time. It is a audio interface as well with 4 in and 4 out connections. There are no digital inputs but 1 stereo digital output and a headphone jack. The DN-X1600 has 5 stereo RCA analog inputs and 2 XLR and 2 stereo RCA outputs.


My favorite part of the DN-X1600 is the layout of it, it is made for heavy mixing. I do wish the screen on it was a bit bigger and had a brighter display. All of the knobs and sliders are made well and will last a long time. The cross fader seems to be decent but I don’t see it lasting more than a few years before it starts to cause some issues. The DN-X1600 is a solid buy, but you can get the MC3000 and virtual have the same thing minus the effects and save 500 dollars.
