Numark NS6II – What’s new and improved
Without doubt the two biggest selling points for the new Numark NS6II are the price point and the dual laptop connectivity.
Yes, that’s right! You can connect two laptops to the single controller for awesome back2back sets with each DJ playing off their own music library. The fact that the Numark NS6II is a 4-channel device means each DJ still gets to control two channels.
Other awesome new features include the built-in jogwheel screens first seen on the Mixtrack Platinum last year, touch-sensitive knobs, 16 backlit RGB performance pads and Serato DJ DVS support.
Controllers with similar feature sets include the Pioneer DDJ-SX2 and Denon MC7000 but both are notably more expensive than the Numark NS6II which is being offered at $ 699 [R 9K].
