    I saw the Prodigy on display at the music store and after 15 minutes playing with it, I had to buy it. Ironically, I bought this as something to mess around with and to serve as a backup DJ system and now am trying to make it my primary DJ setup. The Prodigy is built solid and comes with its own flight case. It has everything a DJ could possibly need and more. The scratching effect is awesome and so are some of the other special effects. I strongly considered the American DJ CDI500MP3 system, but I heard they break easily. The Pioneer CDJ1000 and Denon DN3500 tabletop units are nice, but a complete system will set you back over $2,000. I have already used the Prodigy FX on 2 gigs and it performed flawlessly. I highly recommend this unit because I think it is the best system on the market.

    I have had to have service on this unit for a second time. Not only did it take over a month of down time due to shipping warranty information and shipping labels but 7X2 Days in equipment shipping across the US from CA to NY and back only to find out my FIRST GIG, FIRST CD in Left drive (NON REPAIRED SIDE) went out and I was late in programming at a major event. I play Jazz, Lounge, Classical, New Age, World, Neo-Soul and do not use this unit for scratch mix and hard play.A wonderful concept in technology, very unreliable. At first the CD reader on the right side would sometimes display "error" and then after ejecting the CD and sliding it back into the same CD player the unit would play the CD. This lead to a complete "error" read and mis-track of that drive as in the past I had tried to clean the drive using professional drive cleaners but was shut down seven minutes into a four hour set I was forced to play the entire remainder with one drive. I don't like to nail bite when I use my (professional equipment) my clients deserve more.. B-52 uses cheap laser tracking equipment in this unit I would NEVER buy another product using their optics.

    Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

    Please and I do repeat PLEASE don't buy this unit. I had nothing but problems and the customer service is not that good. The effects randomly turn on which totally kills your set and sometimes the drive will drag a bit. Do yourself a favor. Hold on to what you got for a few more gigs the do what you know in your heart you should do and go and cop the Pioneer set up!!! This unit is flawed and buggy and should be discontinued!!!

    This thing will ruin your show! Was playing at a club and once I got turned up the bass started making the cd players wig out and skip. I would never trust this equipment again at a show. Very unreliable when you need it most.

    I even had the unit in its foam prodigy case, did not help.

    By Pope-Wvxbm

    from Southern California

    Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

    Mixer section DIED mid-gig. No warning. No audio to/from any source. Out of warranty by one month. I would not recommend this for gigs, as there was no warning at all, and since the direct CD outs rely on the mixer, we couldn't use the backup mixer! Immediately pulled from my equipment schedule...

    By DJRUNONE

    from Baton Rouge, LA

    Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

    The B-52 product is great at first, but is bound to mess up the more you play with it! I can't recommend it at allAs of now, I'm experiencing crossfader issues (I'm a heavy scratcher), disc read errors, jammed buttons, and non-working turntables! I really can't refer this product to anyone. If I did not use a program that runs through a labtop, I would be stuck and done for about 10/11 gigs in the past 3 weeks!Also, let me add that I've tried calling the repair place for about 3 weeks now (about 7 times a day) and have yet to even receive anyone's call! and they have 3 numbers you can reach them at. It's almost as if no one even works their anymore! If your a DJ and serious about it, stick with pioneer and/or the technics.

    B-52 Prodigy FX Good Looking But Not Reliable

    By Dr. Love

    from Atlanta

    Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

    I bought one in Nov. 2007. The very next month at a gig a cd became stuck in the cd player. Tried everything to eject the cd. I had to continue the gig with only half of the unit functioning. Returned it to place of purchase and no one there could get the cd to eject so I was given another brand new unit. Apparently, B-52 knew there were problems with cd's becoming stuck in the cd players. This is why there is a stated procedure for ejecting cd's that become stuck. However, the procedure only works sometimes. In 2008, the same thing happened. The unit also developed a short in the receptacle connection that connects to the power cord. The unit was out of warranty by this time. The cd reader on the left side would sometimes display "error" and then after ejecting the cd and sliding it back into the same cd player the unit would play the cd. This unit has a tremendous amount of desirable features but because it is so unreliable I would not recommend anyone to buy one of these. With its reputation, I was surprised that B-52 would put an unproven product on the market as this. I would buy another Prodigy in a heartbeat if B-52 got all the bugs out. If this unit performed as it was supposed to, it would be one of the best DJ mixer/cd players on the market. This unit is a joy to operate when it is functioning properly, but can cause nightmares for a DJ in middle of a gig.

    a big headache

    By Rockent

    from Chi-Town

    Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

    Upon purchasing my unit, a fellow DJ has the same one with no problems. The first one I got unpackged it it didnt work. The store gave me a replacement which in the middle of a gig power went out. Got it back up and the left side went out. After searching several stores they got me a replacement. This unit had been working fine until @ the end of making a cd the left side has went out. So upset.

    Do NOT buy the B-52 Prodigy fx!

    By Raj Singh

    from Maryland

    Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

    Great looking unit with tons of features, however my experience with the prodigy fx was by far the worst. Serato is said to be easily compatible with the prodigy, but that wasn't the case for me. Serato worked but it didn't sync properly with the bmp controller. Recently, during a gig my unit wouldn't even turn on! It would turn on for a spilt second and that's only if i wiggled the power cord. I only had this unit for 6 months. The Prodigy is not a reliable system, don't buy it!

    More of the Same Problems

    Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

    I had two in the span of 13 months and both units gave me the EXACT SAME PROBLEM: trouble reading discs and random skipping of CD's. Although the Prodigy has tons of features and is thoughtfully designed, It is not a reliable piece of equipment. The dealer who sold it to me nicknamed them "boomerangs" because they keep coming back. Shame on B-52 for poor quality control. For the same price, you are better off with a pair of Pioneer CDJ200's or Denon DN 1000's and a decent mixer. I will be glad to share my experience with the Prodigy FX if anyone would like to e-mail me.

    Stay Away from it

    Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

    I was quick to write a positive review when I first purchased this unit in June 2007, but I have to retract it because the Prodigy started giving me problems after only 6 months. Halfway through my New Years Eve party, the right drive stopped working and I kept getting "disc error." The unit was sent back for repair, which I must admit, was prompt, but now, the left drive has trouble ejecting discs. I never abused the unit and all I do is play private parties, so I am very conservative with the unit. The price is right and the Prodigy is packed with useful features but unfortunately, I cannot recommend it because of the problems that I had.

    I own the prodigy for several months now, and love the product. I have 2 Denon DNS-3500's, and a Pioneer DJM-800 and those are way to heavy to carry around everywhere. Grab my MATRIX 1000 V2, by b-52, and PRODIGY FX, and bam! you got a gig set up with in 15 minutes MAX! not too hard eh? i say you try it! worth every single penny!

    Scratching not that good

    By dj runrock

    from Germantown, PA

    Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

    Scratching effects are bad. What I mean is that when you backcue, it is fine, but you cannot scratch forward. All you get is a pitch chance instead of a scratch. Anyone who scratches on vinyl knows that you need to be able to scratch BOTH forwards and backwards. I don't own it, but I did play with it for an hour in the store. For the money I'd buy a pair of Pioneer CDJ800's or 2 Pioneer 400's and a cheap mixer.
