Is there a specific list of features that were brought over to the Prime 4 from the SC5000 line and the x1800 prime mixer? I’m torn between purchasing those units and the Prime 4 and assistance would be helpful.
SC5000 and X1800. (got it)
If one of the players go down, I can finish the job on only one player (2 decks) and the mixer.
Yup!! Happened to me this weekend and saved the night!!
If mobility is not an issue, I would go for the SC5000 and the mixer separately.
I would choose this over the Prime 4 for the following reasons:
-larger platter size on the players
-good screen on both SC players
-SC5000 digital output
-x1800 more friendly with third party hardware (send/return, MIDI)
-x1800 digital inputs and output
These are just a few reasons I can think of but don’t get me wrong, for mobility alone, I would buy a Prime 4 too
The units are so similar that it really comes down to your personal needs.
