MGR/MajorTom's review"Denon DN-HD2500"

Denon DJ DN-HD2500
The DN-HD2500 is a Hard Disc media player/ controller for DJs who want to bring as little equipment as possible to provide a killer show.

I have played guitar and bass for a while but have gotten into DJing recently. This unit has served me well.

I bought this unit from Guitar Center. I think I paid around $650 for it.

Massive storage space, easy to navigate, light weight and great effects.

The platters could be a little bigger, but they work fine.

Very high quality and durable metal construction.

Denon DN-HD2500 Hard Disc Media Player/ Controller

The Denon DN-HD2500 is a very portable MP3 drive/ controller for DJs with tons of functionality. There is an optional CD drive you can use to dock with the DN-HD2500 to play CDs (both audio and data) from your collection. This all-in-one controller is easy to navigate: the two CD/ MP3 spinners allow me to find songs quickly, whether it is on the internal 40GB hard drive, on a USB drive I have connected, or on a CD. The DN-HD2500 supports up to 4 connected USB devices. You can search by BPM, playlist, title, album, artist, genre, and year. The standard Denon effects are here, too, like seamless looping (I found that very easy to initiate, where I wanted it), scratching, brake, reverse, echo, flanger and filter.

Because the unit is not that deep it fits in a small travel case with my power amp for easy transport. In short, I can show up to a gig with just this lightweight Denon unit, my power amp and a couple of speakers and have enough tunes loaded on the internal drive to call up just about any request and deliver a great show.

Denon DJ DN-HD2500
(Originally written by freevoox.17/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
About one year ago.

Since I changed my vinyl records for a digital system. I like the loop and effect capabilities...

I don't like the time required to convert and transfer music but also the compatibility problems with some files...

I didn't test any other model.

No comments about value for money...

Based on my experience, I wouldn't buy it again... My first idea was to buy the dual CD player DN-D6000 or two DN-S1000, or the DN-D4500.

I'd rather buy a Pioneer instead of Denon...

- How long have you been using it?

Since it was launched in 2007

- Which feature do you like the most / the least?

Reliability, Denon quality, much better sound quality than Pioneer.

- Did you try any other models before buying it?

Yes: CDJ1000, Cortex, Oxo Chesley, DN4500, DN2600F, etc.

- How would you rate its value for money?

Excellent, much better than competitor products

- Based on your experience, would you buy this product again?

Yes but if I had had more money I would have bought the DN-HS5500.

The only thing I don't like is that you have to edit the tags in an orderly fashion otherwise you won't find your songs again.

The database update system is not exactly what I'd call optimized and it takes at least 15 minutes to add a song.
