When you say it's a laptop drive, does the little thing pop out and you have to snap the disc on the spindle or is it the car cd player type where you just stick it in?

Oh god no.
Its a slot-in drive that grabs the disc just like our tabletop models.

Haha, I'm totally not convinced on that one. A laptop optical drive is barely used these days, a deck where guest DJ's will use it will be jamming CD's in and out every 3-5 minutes all night. I always insert them so gingerly into my laptop/imac, but not with my CDJ's (I mean I'm not rough, but I don't really think about it either).

I suppose you would buy the external transport unit in that case, but still, not what I was expecting from a $1000 unit + cost of CD drive.

Haven't ordered from them in awhile, but you might give them a try.

Anyone using it?

Has anyone purchased one? I see tons of them on Ebay new in the box for about $500 (without CD drive but I dont need that). A 2 in 1 unit for that much sounds like a pretty good deal.

Ive heard Pioneer decks have more bottom than the Denon's but I will be hooking it up to my Bozak so that shouldnt be a problem.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Efrain

In what ways do you find the 3700's better? Do the 3700's sound better? I noticed the pitch resolution was better on the 3700's. Do you find it limiting? Just wondering how much better sicnce I can get a 2 in 1 for $500 vs almost $1800 for 2 3700's.


thanks,

Efrain

they both sound good. The difference between the units is larger platter on the 3700s. Able to play cds on the 3700s. Able to switch between Serato and cds on the 3700s. Cannot d-sync with the 3700s like on the 5500s. Only able to share info between the machines(3700) and the 5500 can share your music files from one player to the other. Tha ability to play 2 in 1 on the 5500
haven't been able to master this on the 3700s yet. Basically minor things, but both are good and sound good. Yes, the bottom end is not as pronounced on these units as the pioneer cdjs.

Thanks Marcellus. Do you have to use the Denon application to load files on the USB drives or can you play existing files?

The Denon software is to put your files in order. I didn't use the software to loade my existing files when i first got them 5500s/3700s and they worked just fine. Just remember to format first, you can do this right from both of the Denon units.

Just didnt want to pick up a unit that was tied to PC software. If it can benefit from it cool. But if it depended on it to function then I wouldnt have been interested.

I appreciate your time and the info.

Thanks,

Were these things limited to seeing 50,000 tracks? Any thumb drive size limitations? Did the rubber buttons turn out to be more durable than the 5000?

Limited to 50,000 tracks per drive, can't do AIFF, can't do VBR MP3s, and when two are linked then alpha (dual player per side) turns off. So you only have two decks regardless, either in one unit or on two actual units. Otherwise you can't link them. Ouch.
