The poor X1800 must be feeling lonely since the SC5000 is hogging all the attention.
I’m curious to learn more about the “Flex-Fader,” as it hasn’t really been touched on in any of the videos or press releases. Does the “Flex” refer to user adjustable tension or is it something more grand. Any extra details on the crossfader would definitely be appreciated (ex: optical tracking, user replaceable, yada yada).
Another pair of questions: what type of clock/tempo data does the 5-din MIDI Out? Does USB 1/2 send out clock/tempo info when connected to a Class Compliant system?
FWIW, I’m really digging deep for questions to ask since Denon has really covered their basis in terms of features with both the X1800 and SC5000. It’s that O.C.D.-esque attention to detail they’ve demonstrated that caused me to put my NXS2 system up for sale.
