We got a first hands-on look at the Denon DJ SC5000 Prime here at the NAMM 2017 Media Preview Day. The SC5000 Prime is a forward-looking media player that in all honesty has to be seen to be properly understood, because the hi-res renders doing the rounds don't do justice to the build quality.

No sooner do we set up our hotel suite office here at the NAMM 2017 Music Show in LA after a 16-hour haul from London and connect to the laughable "high speed" Hilton internet, than we see news of a brand new Serato DJ DVS mixer from our friends at Reloop: The Reloop RMX-90.
