Flex Fader Replacement

I’ve got a DN-X1600 and I recently snapped my crossfader. I could replace it with an Innofader, but I really prefer the feel of the flex fader (super clicky, nearly weightless like a focus fader, razor sharp cut in).

I have two questions.

  1. Is the flex fader from the 1500 / 1500s the same as the one in the 1600? I’ve tracked down a replacement, but it happens to come from a 1500. If I buy it, will it work plug and play?

  2. Can I purchase replacement parts directly from denon (i’ve got an upfader thats also on its way out)
