The Denon DJ VL12 Prime features the most optimal acoustic isolation capabilities, able to handle any loud, bass-heavy environment - there's no classic or control vinyl-based gig the VL12 cannot handle. This true quartz locked, direct-drive Pro DJ Turntable offers you the most exhilarating hands-on performance experience you could ever imagine.

The VL12's platter light ring can be set to a multitude of colors, with adjustable brightness and a 'lights-out' mode too. The platter itself features an easy grip/brake, chamfered shape, so you can make the most direct and subtle adjustments to your vinyl mix. The VL12's beauty and elegance needs power to complete the circle; the VL12 Prime's adjustable torque ensures that your mixing, scratching and cutting experience on the VL12 is always solidly accurate.
