The Denon DJ DN-HS5500 DJ Media Player Turntable is a versatile, feature-packed audio player and controller, for professional club, mobile and touring DJs, as well as home DJs and enthusiasts alike. The DN-HS5500 packs an incredible array of versatile features that set it apart from traditional controllers, CD decks or turntables, by incorporating all of these devices into one unit.

The player functions as an MP3 or WAV file audio player with dual deck capability and separate outputs for each layer. This enables DJs with the ability to play an entire set on just one DN-HS5500 turntable. Users may choose between an (optional) CD-Rom player or internal hard-drive as their media platforms.

An internal USB connector integrates with PC or Mac computers and enables the DN-HS5500 to operate as a 24-bit audio interface as well as a control surface for popular DJ and production software titles. Included in this package is Denon DJ Music Manager for the PC and Mac. In addition, the player boasts a direct-drive spinning platter for real-time, touch responsive manipulation, scratching and cuing.
