I’m a fairly new owner of two SC5000 players and an X1800 mixer (about a month). So far they’ve been fun and fantastic to work with (although I had to send one back because of a weird issue where it would not turn off unless I unplugged it). However, the replacement unit along with my other player have performed perfectly…up until a little test I performed today.
All of my music is prepared in rekordbox, so when Denon announced that rekordbox-prepared USB sticks could now be used with the SC5000 without losing cue and loop points, I was stoked. As a test, I loaded about thirty house music tracks onto a newly formatted (FAT32) USB stick using rekordbox and inserted it into one of my SC5000s. The SC5000-analyzed beatgrids were off by one or two beats for more than half of the tracks (ugh) but the weirdest surprise was that the album art which is displayed in the center of the job wheel was now really pixelated and blurry. To make sure I wasn’t imagining this, I then inserted a separate USB drive that I prepared via Engine Prime with the same tracks and the album art was crisp and clear.
Anyone else experience this issue?
