Denon DS-1

The DS1 is plug-and-play with Serato DJ, enahncing Denon DJ’s already renowned audio quality and reliability to club DJs and turntablists who prefer the experience of vinyl, but still want the flexibility that a digital music library provides.

Featured in the DS1 is a bi-directional audio interface with 2 sets of RCA stereo inputs for turntables or professional CD players. While DJs are manipulating the vinyl or CD NoiseMap signal, Serato DJ software mirrors the control signal. This means controlling digital tracks on-screen and in real-time for beatmatching, cueing, scratching, and track juggling.

Playback audio is distributed by the Denon DS1 to your mixer or loudspeaker system in studio-grade 24-bit quality through 2 sets of RCA stereo outputs.

And Denon DJ’s DS1 is more compact than most smartphones, making it the perfect companion for the traveling DJ. The rugged, all-metal construction easily withstands constant transport, setup and breakdown. A single USB cable conducts power and audio duties, making operation much simpler. Inputs are phono/CD selectable with a grounding post for turntable use.

With its exact and dependable tracking and crystal clear audio, the DS1 brings in a new wave of performance for the hands-on DJ. Whether you’re using NoiseMap vinyl or optical media, the DS1 works tirelessly every night to eliminate the gap between that classic analog feel you love and the precise digital capability you demand.
