Denon introduces the DN-S3700 CD Deck

Duncan Geere Digital Music 1 Comment

Although Pioneer’s CDJ-1000MK3s are the standard CD player in every nightclub across the UK, Denon produces a range of DJ-standard CD players, too. They’ve just announced a new iteration, too – the DN-S3700. It’s got a rotating 9″ platter on the top with vinyl emulation, so if you can’t mix CDs with the buttons, then you can do it using the platter.

Additional features include USB and MIDI control, internal USB sound card, five built-in effects, and loop functionality, as well as your standard pitch/speed adjust and slot-loader. It certainly competes with the CDJ-1000 on features, but it lacks a lot of the style of Pioneer’s rival player – the DN-S3700 is covered with garish buttons and flashing lights. It doesn’t compete much on price either, costing £900 new, compared to £770 for the Pioneer. I’d love to give it a spin and see how it compares when actually ‘in the mix’. You can buy it ‘soon’ from from HTFR.

Bored of your office desk-cum-treadmill? Want to beef up your biceps instead of your thighs? Then I guess, err, you’ll be after the dubiously named ‘Springflex’. Sounds suspiciously like an infomercial product to me!

It can be screwed onto your desk, giving you the power to do well over 120 exercises, targeting your upper body…all whilst sitting at your chair, staring blankly at your RSS feeds, wishing it was lunchtime already so you can stare blankly at all the greenery in your local salad bar.

Here’s a word of advice, though. If you purchase…
