Denon DJ PRIME 2 2-Channel Smart DJ Controller with 7-inch Touchscreen:
Meet the little brother of the Denon DJ Prime4, the Denon DJ Prime2 Smart DJ Controller. What are the differences you ask between the Denon DJ Prime 2 and the Denon DJ Prime 4?
- The first major difference is the size, the Prime2 comes in at 25.39″ x 16.15″ x 4.73″ and only 15 lbs where the Prime 4 is 28.68″ x 19.56″ x 4.08″ and 21.5 lbs.
- The second major difference is that the Prime 2, has 2 channels (Although you can still control 4 decks) instead of 4.
- The third major difference is that the screen is a bit smaller, 10.1″ vs 7″ to fit the smaller size and the screen is set in one position only.
- The fourth major difference is the zone output which most people won’t need unless you need to run sound in another room etc.
- The last major difference is inputs, the Prime2 has 3 fewer inputs comparatively than the Prime 4 and no phono line ins.
If you are looking to spend a little less and the above differences are not deal breakers for you, go with the Denon DJ Prime 2.
Also, if you’re looking for a “Home studio” controller this is a perfect choice as it still has all the same features as the Prime4 (Wi-fi enabled, tidal streaming, USB inputs, or the ability to use the software) and the smaller size and lower cost make it a PERFECT home studio or backup controller.
Now that you know the differences, let's talk more about the Prime 2 Smart DJ Controller specifically:
