This gives the S a very life like feel and good reponse for complex scratches and cuts although we would have preferred a full 12 inch platter rather than an 8 inch one. However, Denon did go the extra mile by including both an adjustable brake speed and reverse mode, both of which involve the platter reacting as if it were a true vinyl turntable. Whereas the DN-S features 2 samplers, the S has a single 15 second sampler. It is easy to use and should suffice for most DJs. Not only canit read ID3 tags for Artist, Album, and Track, it also has a easy search function that allows you to find the file you are looking for withing seconds. Best of all if you are in a time crunch or just plain lazy you can cue up a song to play next and tell the Denon to crossfade to the track after the current one finishes playing.

Using pairs of turntables and a mixer, they hacked together rudimentary systems that let them cue material on one deck while a record played on the other. The DN-S is extremely capable, but has Denon really closed the gap between genuine vinyl mixing and a digital simulation?
This means that you can pack a huge number of songs into the space in your bag usually occupied by one vinyl record. The platter is manually attached to the drive motor by placing it on the spindle, then a slip-mat on top of that, and finally a sheet of translucent vinyl.
The DN-S is bundled with two slip-mats, one patterned with blue swirls, the other covered in little demon eyes -- we advise against using the latter, for obvious reasons. If you want to go for a retro aesthetic, you can even attach a inch vinyl record to the platter and scratch with that. The DN-S uses a professional-grade platter assembly and drive mechanism. The variable pitch on the platter has a sensitivity ranging from just 4 per cent all the way up to per cent where the platter is entirely stationary.
The deck will use the sensory data from the platter to instantaneously alter playback of the source material. These vinyl behaviours are not simulated in a broad, generic way. Instead they are very specifically related to platter position, the speed of your finger movement and the pressure you apply. These are designed to simulate features on a vinyl deck: Brake, Dump and Reverse.
