B-52 Prodigy FX All In-One DJ Workstation

Comments about B-52 Prodigy FX DJ Workstation:

I purchase a Prodigy FX in November, 2007. At the first gig I did in December, 2007, a cd became stuck in the right side cd player. Tried everything to get the cd ejected with no luck. Carried it back to Guitar Center where purchased it & they couldn't eject the cd either so they immediately gave me another new unit. Later a cd became stuck in this one as well as a short developed in the connector that connects to the power cord (out of warranty then) Bought a Prodigy (cheaper version of the FX) in 2009. A cd became stuck in it the first time I used it. It's apparent that B-52 knew they had problems with cd's becoming stuck in these units which is why they have s stated procedure for ejecting them; however, the procedure doesn't always work. When these units worked it made DJing a breeze. Trak finder made it easy to find tracks esp. with MP3 cd's with over 100 songs. However, as much as I liked the Prodigy FX and all its features, I could not recommend buying one of these to another DJ or anyone considering work as a DJ. These are not reliable units. For the amount of money these units cost, the value nor quality is there. I've replaced these with an apple computer and a Denon 1500 and HS5500. I'll be trading my Prodigy and Prodigy Fx units in on other DJ equipment. It;s a shame that a company like B-52 with its reputation would put an unproven product on the market before getting all the bugs out. If they got all the bugs out, I'd buy another Prodigy FX in a heartbeat. I would not recommend the cheaper version of the Prodigy FX, the Prodigy. The meters on the FX that would alert you to clipping have been removed in the cheaper Prodigy.
