I have been using SC500 in the last 2 months…at the start I was very critic…but day after day, little by little, I felt completely in love with my Denon gear…the sense of profound beauty that arouses me this hardware is something difficult to explain but now, when I look pioneer gear, they seem to me ungrateful old and not smart to use comparing to our sc5000. (loop, cue etc). Now I have the X1800 too, and with the plates it’s just a perfect combination.
I am still fighting against an odd jogwheel, an improvable search function (please DENON add search by comment and rate on the fly), but now i am very happy to be in this “Prime” platform.
Maybe just to push Denon “to do it quick”, sometimes in this forum the risk is to let the “bad things” become more important that the good ones.
So let’s enjoy this DENON PRIME SERIES …most underestimated hardware of all time!!!
