Technology in the standalone DJ system space has come a long way over the years. No longer does picking up an all-in-one system mean having to compromise on quality, versatility, or world-class performance – you really can have it all in a single compact unit.
Standalone DJ systems are particularly popular among newcomers but can also cover the needs of the highest-profile professionals. Far from a shortage of options, the main issue with today’s line-up of standalone DJ systems is finding that you are spoilt for choice.
With this in mind, here is a brief overview of five recommendations for the top standalone DJ systems available in the UK right now:
- Numark Mixstream Pro
The Numark Mixstream Pro scores top marks by combining the same high-end software as the Prime 4 with a pair of built-in speakers. Not the kinds of speakers you will be able to entertain a crowd with, but absolutely fantastic for practicing between shows. This is a true all-in-one system you can use anywhere and anytime, irrespective of whether you have your headphones with you.
- Denon DJ Prime Go
With its tiny jog wheels, two channels, and the relatively modest line-up of features, the Denon DJ Prime Go is unlikely to become your main piece of performance hardware. However, consider the fact that it has an in-built rechargeable battery, and you suddenly realize what an insanely desirable piece of equipment you are looking at. Complete with the same sexy 7-inch screen as the Numark Mixstream Pro, the Denon DJ Prime Go boasts the kind of battery life that means you can use it from literally anywhere in the world – no mains power supply necessary.
- Pioneer DJ XDJ-RX3
This thing continues to rank among the best standalone systems of its kind for the simple reason that its setup looks and feels as close to club-standard gear as it gets. Not to mention its immense versatility – the Pioneer DJ XDJ-RX3 can be used independently or as a separate mixer for CDJs or record decks. Packed with the highest-quality hardware money can buy, the Pioneer DJ XDJ-RX3 gets the job done fantastically on stage, in the studio, and in any amateur DJ’s back bedroom.
- Denon DJ Prime 4
A staple on the scene for some time now, the Denon DJ Prime 4 combines an unusual layout with the brand’s most advanced performance hardware. The result is possibly the most technologically sophisticated all-in-one you can buy right now, boasting everything from built-in WiFi to Engine DJ software to full DJ lighting control via its onboard SoundSwitch control system.
- Pioneer DJ XDJ-XZ
The Pioneer DJ XDJ-XZ is undoubtedly the standalone system for those looking to get the full club-style setup from an all-in-one powerhouse. It has the same-sized jog wheels as the CDJ-3000, a full-sized mixer that’s almost the same as that of the DJM-900, and more inputs and outputs than anything else in its class. It is the most expensive of the five options here by a moderate margin, but what you get is effectively the full Pioneer club-level DJ experience in a convenient, practical, and perfectly portable unit.
