I am new here & have just bought my first ever media player, Denon SC6000.
I have been previously using two Technics 1210MK7 turntables with an Allen & Heath Xone 96 mixer & just playing DVS vinyl through Traktor Pro software.
I wanted to be able to use something stand alone without a computer, that’s why I bought the Denon SC6000, on paper everything looked great, very nice navigation, well set out, decent build quality, the pitch control is great, the jog wheel is nothing special, but will get use to it I’m sure, but here comes the problem, the sound…
When I use my Xone 96 with DVS vinyl running Traktor, the sound is warm, the bass is full & punchy & it has dynamics, not only that, I have to have the gain knobs & master incredibly low, as the output is powerful, when I plug the SC6000 into the line inputs on the Xone 96 & run stand alone, it is a completely different story, gain knobs have to be turned up, master has to be turned up & the sound, well it lacks warmth, the highs are rolled off, the bass loses it’s punch, the dynamics & warmth is gone, seriously disappointing, I am thinking of returning it to the store if I can’t find a way around this, unfortunately I can’t try the digital inputs which I believe would bypass the SC6000 internal DAC as the Xone 96 doesn’t have digital inputs.
Is there a way around this, does Traktor recognise the SC6000, so I can bypass there DAC & internal processing, it kind of defeats the purpose of me buying stand alone units though.
