The Exhaustive Review of the DN-X500


from Port Saint Lucie

Ask me a question

Comments about Denon DN-X500 Pro DJ Mixer:

I've been DJing on and off for over 17 years. I've used many brands of mixers and can hear things that other experienced and professional DJs can't hear. I'm also picky in my late career.

The DN-X500 is for a DJ with little money who wants good basic features, and not a slew of cheep confusing options.

Yes, sonically this mixer is distortion free and clear sounding. It definitely does not have the warmth in the midrange as my old 19 inch Pioneer DJM-3000. There's something about the midrange of this mixer that sounds lacking to me. It also does not have the punch of my Pioneer, either. The sound is a little flat to me, but yes it is clear.

With the Pioneer DJM-3000 it sounds better in the red, unless you take it to +14, and then it's sudden harsh clipping. With the Denon, it's starts to sound a little worse in the red, beginning at +8 db. For the best sound in this mixer you keep at 0 db.

The EQ can only be turned +1/3-turn before it sounds bad no matter who is spinning or what genre it is. The option to remove the bass in the EQ is very handy for me. The EQ On/Off switch was just a confusing extra that probably no one needs, anyway.

I felt that the channel faders on this mixer were a little long but the quality is there. I didn't notice any fader cross-talk or music leaking from faders that were off. I liked that the main is a knob, which isn't as confusing as a 5th channel fader, like the DJM-3000. The crossfader contour knob is also a huge benefit that I didn't know I needed until it was there.

There is a XLR/TRS main mic and an additional TRS aux mic input. Both mic inputs include a midrange EQ knob with was a huge benefit for me. In order to hear any music behind the talk-over button you have to adjust the talk-over knob in the back of the mixer.

There are no effects on this mixer, which came as a relief to me. It's less confusing!! There is a TRS send and receive which comes in handy for mobile DJs, like me, who need a line-input to play along side of instrument performers, like sax or violinists.

The input assign and channel fader system allows you to change fader settings without the popping noise that came from the assign being a part of the fader, like on the Pioneer DJM-300. That's a plus!

I was happy with the booth output on this, however the headphone out is not extremely loud like a Pioneer. The problem would be if you DJed a festival or concert that was extremely loud and needed extremely loud headphone monitoring. This mixer's headphone out would probably be maxed-out for me at a concert. No, bueno.

The LED's are almost impossible to see outside. Even under shade I couldn't see my levels outside. The temperature is only slightly cooler than the hot Pioneers. The temperature of my equipment is a huge concern of mine as an outdoor mobile DJ in Florida. For some reason I can't understand, these mixers run hotter than my 1,000 watt QSC speakers. lol

The separate grounding posts were a huge relief over my old Pioneer. You can't use them unless the RCS's are unplugged because of where the posts are located, but no biggie. At least there's two!

In the following information I'm going to rate the mixer's parts in a range of money from the range of 0 - 1,000. 0 - 100 means it's so cheap that it would fall apart under careful use, 1,000 means durable under normal use, like a Pioneer. Please realize any mixer you buy would break if you abused it.

Apparent button durability = 550, button feel = 400, button performance = 550, apparent fader durability = 550, fader feel 550 - 600, fader performance = 650, apparent EQ durability, 550, EQ feel 550, EQ performance = 500.

I hope this review helped guide your purchase!

    I bought this mixer right before I had a wedding to DJ and it worked out wonderfully. Enough inputs for everything I needed and I thought the sound from the mixer was excellent.

    Solid in the 19' range


    from pittsburgh

    Comments about Denon DN-X500 Pro DJ Mixer:

    This is a great 19" mixer that I have been spinning on for close to two years now. I play psy trance and house music. Although it does not have the visual impact of a 12" mixer its functinality surpases most of them. Never thought I would find I liked a 19" mixer as a rave style DJ but its great because you can easily manipulate the chanel fader and EQ's with one hand. The main draw back of this board is its EQ. Although the full kills are perfect I find that the roll off on the mid and high are a bit to "literal" or "harsh". A very small twist will send your highs into the harsh zone and the general sonic response just seems to not be particularly smooth. This is a double edge sword in that it works great as a sort of master EQ for the mobile DJ playing pop tunes but lacks the smooth and more subtle alterations needed by a rave style DJ. I find that only 1/3 of the travel beyond the middle position of the EQ knobs is usable before the signal becomes boosted far to much to sound natural. However it rarely if ever distorts so it is not a lack of quality, simply preference (and no its not a poor PA, I practice on studio monitors).Overall the matrix input routing is the best feature and should show up on every mixer in the future. Tons of creative possibilities because of this. The cross fader is very nice but obviously not going to please the tablist crowd. It has a very cool rotary knob to adjust the fader curve which can in and of itself be used to make very smooth rotary style fades if you use your head about it.Overall a great piece of gear but I think I have outgrown it and will likely upgrade to the Denon x1500s mixer in the next few years and keep this as a backup.

    Good inexpensive mixer


    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Denon DN-X500 Pro DJ Mixer:

    The DN-X500 is a huge leap over the old DN-X400. The 400 was garbage to say the least. The 500 is golden and solid. I have had it almost 1 year and had experience with it for 2. EQs are infinite and cut the sound completely when turned all the way down. The faders are very smooth and the led lights are accurate. The any channel assignable inputs are the best thing about this mixer to configure where exactly you want that particular Turntable or CD player. One draw back is that the writing for some of the features is too small and impossible to read in the dark. This makes it a little hard for those who are not accustomed to this mixer to pick up on it without asking a few questions. Over all probably the best value mixer for the price.

    For Mobile Guys Who Don't Want To Spend Over $500


    from NJ

    Comments about Denon DN-X500 Pro DJ Mixer:

    Excellent machine. The clarity and EQ on this mixer is perfect. The design for the crossfader assignment and that you can choose what line to play on each channel is just perfect. Durable, perfect sound, and perfect features. If you're a mobile DJ and don't want to buy the Rane or Pioneer 19" mixers, this is as close as you'll get to them.
