Denon DJ today announced its Prime 4 smart controller is now enabled for both hard-wired and Wi-Fi internet connection, via a new v1.4 Firmware update.
This update brings the global stream and entertainment platform TIDAL—the first of Denon DJ’s premium content streaming partners— to the Prime 4, with SC5000 and SC5000M support to follow. Both beta group members and current Prime Series users (following product registration at denondj.com) will receive a free, 3-month TIDAL HiFi trial period.
Standalone streaming with the TIDAL platform means that you can access your personal TIDAL playlists and also follow the platform’s own curated selections. This means that you’ve got a massive library of tracks available, without any need for additional hardware.
“Now with access to TIDAL music’s 60+ Million songs, the WiFi switch is ‘On’,” says said Denon DJ’s Creative Director, Paul Dakeyne. “This Public Beta program ushers in the next DJ workflow and performance paradigm for our customers.”
Since TIDAL playback is standalone, your music can be streamed using just the Prime 4 unit. Denon DJ’s two standalone media players, the SC5000 and SC5000M will follow in short order. In addition, V1.4 brings enhanced search speed, visual feedback, performance and stability improvements to this Prime Series hardware.
- Enabled internet via hard-wired and Wi-Fi connections.
