The two new units will go on sale very soon

Following last week's announcement of the SC6000/6000M and X1850, Denon has revealed details of two new pieces of DJ hardware, the Prime 2 and Prime Go.

Both units are standalone DJ controllers with a 7-inch, gesture-enabled touchscreen, 8.5-inch capactive-touch jogdials, and both offer built-in Wi-Fi and ethernet connectivity for music streaming. Streaming from Tidal is supported at launch, with support for Soundcloud, Beatport LINK and other services to be added via a firmware upgrade in due course. 

The Prime 2 [top pic], which is a two-channel version of the existing Prime 4, also has a built-in 2.5-inch SATA drive slot for storing your music, as well as an RCA Aux input for connecting laptops, phones or media players.

But it's the Prime Go [above] that's the more innovative of the two machines. Powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, it's good for up to four hours of go-anywhere performance and – presumably to keep the weight down – has USB and SD card slots in place of the SATA drive bay for music storage, and for recording your mixes.

The Prime 2 and Prime Go will go on sale very soon. UK/European prices are still TBA, but the US retail price will be $1,399 and $999, respectively.
