Denon Professional Mixes Business with Pleasure

Thu, January 22, 2015

Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA — January 22, 2015. Denon Professional (denonpro.com), a leading innovator of premium solutions for the professional A/V market, announces the DN-408X and DN-412X audio mixers. Crafted with public speaking, conferences, and performing arts venues in mind, the 8-channel DN-408X and 12-channel DN-412X offer utmost capability in a compact, 2-bus portable tabletop format.

Both mixers offer high-headroom DyNamic Audio (DNA) mic preamps—ensuring a noticeably pristine and engaging audio path from input to output—and built-in audio compression to automatically tame unpredictable audio level surges. Both the DN-408X and DN-412X include over 100 studio-grade effects and 9-band graphic EQ for enhancing a mix. Each mixer channel features color-coordinated 3-band EQ for correcting and shaping audio frequencies.

Each mixer includes a wealth of input and output types to ensure adapter-free connection to loudspeakers or amplification systems: XLR, balanced ¼-inch (6.3mm), and RCA. An internal power supply and rigid metal construction complement the intuitive layout with long-term reliability—even when ported from venue to venue.

“Sound reinforcement for events is far more intricate than it ever before, requiring a gamut of tools to get the job done. Until now, A/V professionals and venues would have to provide a variety of adapters and processors with them to accommodate their client’s needs,” said Costa Lakoumentas, Senior VP of Denon Professional. “Our new mixers were built to prepare the user for the unexpected with top-rate sound quality and intuitive signal management. When the pressure to perform is on, users will appreciate the peace of mind we provide.”
