Denon is joining the parade of controller manufacturers who are releasing a second iteration of their flagship controllers – this time, it’s the MC6000 that has a MK2 version coming out. The MC6000 MK2 has been redesigned to work with Serato DJ, and it comes with Serato DJ Intro (Virtual DJ branding and inclusion seems to have been dropped from the controller entirely?) – and features a redone set of controls on the face of the unit. The controller has had a bit of attention to the finish + feel as well.
We’ve put the controllers side by side in the above image- you can see that most of the layout changes are to match the controls in Serato DJ, and overall there’s been a reduction in clutter, making it easier to tell at a glance what each section of the controller is for.
The MC6000 MK2 is set to come out in January 2014 at price points of $699 / €649 / £569. Watch Denon’s introduction video below – instead of a teaser, they go through the full feature set:
