About This Product

Denon Pro DN-501C CD / Media Player

Introducing the DN-501C, a broadcast–grade CD/USB/Media Player, further bolstering the 500-series – the new face of workhorse, affordable A/V products for professional installation by Denon Professional. Conveniently tooled in a space- saving 1 RU chassis, the DN-501C further emphasizes Denon Pro’s commitment to providing professional feature-rich installation products, at affordable prices, to the contracting industry. With a bright, highly visible OLED display, a slot-in CD Data drive and USB port for media playback, and pitch and master key control, the 501C lends itself to a myriad of applications from FOH sound, to broadcast, to fitness/dance and beyond.

The DN-501C is the ideal choice for installations no matter the environment. With advanced control possibilities, accessing your device and controlling media has never been easier, including full RS-232c serial implementation for large installations and individual control via the included IR remote. And our new switching power supply allows for easy- integration into applications and environments that find themselves outside the realm of 110V AC power.

On the output side of the device, standard unbalanced RCA’s and professional digital I/O’s complement the balanced XLR analog outputs, complete with trim control so you always have an appropriate level, no matter what your signal amplification needs are.

The front-panel USB jack further expands your media playback capabilities by allowing the connection of USB thumb / HDDs for instant access to many media formats, including WAV, MP3, AAC, and AIFF. Additionally, the USB port is iPod and iPhone ready, allowing for connection and playback of your entire iTunes library in direct digital quality.

Furthermore, when coupled with Denon Professional’s free Pitch Key App (available on the AppStoreSM) a fitness or aerobics instructor, or band teacher/music student can take control of playback by adjusting Pitch, Tempo, or both of any audio file in their device.

With extra playback features like a dedicated CUE button, various repeat and random playback modes, program playback, high-quality mechanism, the DN-501C carries the torch for quality Denon Professional audio playback.
