DN-S1200: Total Control Over Your Music Collections in a Super Compact Instrument!
Denon’s new DN-S1200 Compact CD/USB Media Player & Controller is a super-compact and
sophisticated DJ instrument that lets users bring together and enjoy access to their entire music
collection from virtually all-existing storage media, including Apple® iPods® and USB Flash Drives. For
total flexibility, it features an illuminated Slot-In CD Player, a quick-loading and fast data reading
mechanism that offers a variety of audio compact disc support, including CD, CD-R, CD-RW and CDTEXT.
Thanks to its advanced External USB Device Support, users have access to vast portable music
collections stored on external USB media and may connect their iPod, Thumb Drive, and large Hard
Drives for easy access to small or extensive mp3/wav collections of up to 50,000 files. Simply plug
these devices into the DN-S1200 to obtain the powerful on-board features such as Instant Start,
Seamless Looping, Scratching and easy File Searching. Notably, with its MIDI Interface Controller
(PC/MAC), the DN-S1200 is also designed to interface and control a variety of popular DJ programs
that supports USB MIDI in/out interface, either by user custom mapping or direct native support by the
software vendor. Users can easily control their favorite DJ software all from a single advanced compact
player. Unlike most dedicated DJ midi controllers that are only USB bus powered, the DN-S1200
encompasses its own internal power supply to achieve the highest electrical specifications, resulting in
best possible performance. The DN-S1200 features industry leading Burr Brown (a product of TI) 24 bit
DAC processing for superior output audio fidelity.
The DN-S1200’s leading-edge 110mm JOG Disc is constructed with an ultra high-resolution pulse and
touch sensor mechanism to accurately reproduce the most subtle or swift scratching movements made by
the human hand. The Jog Disc can perform other vital functions too such as, pitch bending, scanning,
file searching and dry/wet control for effects. For added creative flexibility, two “hot starts” (A1 and
A2) can be made on the fly and easily turned into Seamless Loops. And thanks to its 4 Superb Built-in
Effects, building the mood of the dance floor and remixing live has never been easier. DJs can easily
activate and have full parameter control with a Dry/Wet mix control of the 4 effects: Flanger, Filter
(High-Mid-Low), Echo and Echo/Loop, as well as 3 Platter Effects, including Brake (adjustable in realtime),
Dump (reverse sound without losing true forward time, like a radio edit), and Reverse (plays your
music backwards). For those DJ’s who perform long mix transitions and require high pitch resolution,
the S1200 offers a 100mm pitch slider with .02% for the 4% pitch range and .05% for the 10/16% pitch
range. 24%/50%/100% ranges are also available.
The DN-S1200 comes complete with Denon DJ’s acclaimed Music Manager Software. Among its
groundbreaking features is a highly refined search system, which lets users navigate quickly through any
MP3/ WAV files connected to the system and monitor files via the internal player. Additionally, the
Music Manger allows for ID3 Tag Editing of MP3/ WAV for supported fields, scans files and saves
BPM calculated results to the TAG itself, builds playlists, importing/exporting of Playlists and
transporting music files to other connected devices The Denon DN-S1200 is scheduled to ship in April
2008 at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $599.99.
