The Denon DJ LC6000 Prime DJ Controller is the only controller of this kind currently on the market and its uniqueness will stir up a lot of interest from DJs and venue owners alike. Its’s main selling point (in my humble opinion) is its ability to offer a full DJ deck set-up at a much lower price compared to buying 2 Denon media players or their pioneer equivalents. DJs wanting to add a 3rd or 4th deck to their set-up will also find this appealing.

It’s great build quality and functionality coupled with its compatibility with other hardware and software mean it will attract a broad range of customers.

However, we would have liked to see compatibility with the Denon’s Prime 4 controller which we hear is on it’s way.

Although the LC6000 offers a much more affordable route to multiple deck set-ups, I can’t help but think that the $699 price tag is a little steep for a controller unit and it wouldn’t surprise me if we see a price drop sometime next year.

Ultimately, I think this is a great option for DJs wanting to add additional control to their set-ups.
