Topic: Mixstream Pro
Ok first off Merry Christmas if you celebrate it, hope everyone and everybody is having a great holiday.

As some know I use Denon products and have for a long time, something about them just keeps me coming back. Never really had any major issues with any of the Denon gear I’ve owned over the years.

Anyways I was thinking of picking up a Mixstream Pro since I am already in the Engine ecosystem.

I know it’s pretty basic as far as controls and fxs goes but really alls I would do is take it when I go camping or just hanging out I. The woods with my family.

I’ve thought about the battery powered Denon Go thing but I would have to carry around a speaker which I guess I do anyways because of the PT01 scratch.

Anyone here have any experience with it?? What do you like about it, don’t like about it. Just your general impressions of it.

No one here is using this controller??

I considered either that or the Prime Go but Engine is an utter mess and put me off. I also feel the Go is good quality but the battery doesn't last a gig and it's too expensive, but the Mixistream is cheap and gimmicky with the bedroom speakers.

If they had something in the middle with the go quality but without the battery or speakers that might hit the spot.

For being someone who's used Denon gear since the 90s I've completely gone off them as in music are not going in a direction I like. The quality is questionable and their product line is bizarre. Just gonna stick with my MCX8000 units and leave it there.

I hear ya bro! I had the 8000 but the screen kept freezing on me so I sent it back.

I have an NV and the SR2 but I always have to hookup a laptop to use either one which is the appeal of the Mixstream and it is now supported by VDJ.

I might just grab one and see how it goes. The newest Denon update has fixed some issues with it.

Can't go wrong for the price I guess, worth a shot.
Let us know how you get on!

Well I got my hands on 1 for $250, don't think they realized what they had lol!!

Anyways, in standalone mode it is basic but it is fun!! Not to much bigger then my Numark NV. The speakers on it are actually decent for what they are. All in all I cant really complain about it so far. It will defiantly be going on camping trips with the fam, hanging out at the park or where ever I decide to bust it out.

Now with VDJ it gets better but I think the screen could be utilized a little better but that's me and I consider myself an advanced user.

So give me a little time and Ill report back after some real world use.

Excellent, great price. Thanks for the update Huey!

Nice.....Where did you find that for such a low price ..

Not the same low price, but I got mine, a refurbished control, last week. It came with a generic package but it is brand new with the 2.2.0 firmware. I already put the 2.4 engine DJ firmware and works with no major issues, so far.
The good about this unit 1) it is all in one system 2) You could use it also as a controller with VDJ since 2.2 firmware (without it is just a limited all-in-one system). With this setup VDJ also changes the 7"display for a custom navigation and display which is great 3) The sound is decent for what is intended, mostly for use in small rooms, maybe outdoors but do not expect a loud sound. 4) The engine DJ touch system is getting better and better
The NOT so good i) The 7" screen lays flat. It should have been tilted 10-20º so you do not get neck pain after DJing for a long period ii) Big filter knobs oddly located not near the EQ buttons ii) limited effects (4) unless you use it as a controller with VDJ iii) There are only four pad modes and four physical pads. The pad modes does not contain sampler (or may be I do not know how to get a custom pad mode with samples) You could use 4 'additional' pads with the press of a button, not a problem, but those wanting to use pads you are limited only to four physical. if you want to use VDJ and the stems for example, you have to press back and forth the additional key. So far, after one week.
In conclusion, as an all-in-one system pretty limited in features, but as a controller with VDJ a nice 'machine' if you get it at a super reduced price

Yes sir, agree with everything said here.

I will say that I do like the filter knobs up top tho and they are chunky which i do like. Its a solid unit for its intended purposes. Like I said it'll be going everywhere I go this summer lol!!

So i used it live for the first time this past weekend with VDJ and it ran flawlessly.

Not a bad little unit for those easy little bar gigs. Definitely gonna keep this thing.

Now you can also play "Amazon Music Unlimited" with it...
 

Posted Tue 07 Feb 23 @ 8:55 pm
Not the version I have lol!!
 

Posted Tue 07 Feb 23 @ 10:10 pm
Which version do you have?
 

Posted Wed 08 Feb 23 @ 8:47 pm
The very first version. This new version has a DRM chip built into it which is what allows it to play Amazon tracks..

Thanks, I've read it now.
I thought I could get an old one for cheap :-)
