DMP-555

Digital Media Player

  • World's first Digital Media Player w/ MP3 & SD technology
  • CD ripping, loop editing and music file management
  • Dual Synchronous Play

World's first Digital Media Player with MP3 & SD technology

The DMP-555 is compatible with CD Audio and MP3 formats and will playback from both CD and SD Card. Since these are capable of storing a huge number of MP3 tracks and loops, the DMP-555 allows DJs to enhance their sets and mixes with the latest music from around the world.

When the slim, compact and portable SD Card is used for mixes, the DMP-555 effectively becomes a sampler. This ground-breaking innovation is possible because MP3 loops can be BPM sync'd to the CD output and then fired on cue. In addition, the Master Tempo control can be used to slow down or speed up SD audio, without the pitch being affected.

CD ripping, loop editing and music file management are simple operations with the bundled DJ Booth software. And because the application simulates a set-up using two Pioneer CD players and a mixer, it's easy to master the playback, mixing and editing functions in no time at all. It's even possible to control the software from the DMP-555 itself, making DJ Booth the most innovative and user-friendly application available to today's digital DJs.
