So I plugged in other players into this amazing machine and the LAN hub operated normally. While I didn’t get fader start / Digital BPM info sent across them (as expected Engine Connect is a no go) , I was able to use this as a regular hub for multiple devices.
My NXS2 Players were able to share USB/SD info + all BPM & grids to each other. I plugged my laptop into my ladys laptop and transferred files over also. Really amazing… I’m so happy I bought this mixer.
