Pioneer XDJ-1000 Review

The Pioneer XDJ-1000 multimedia player is the first “CD-less” player by Pioneer DJ that boasts a full seven-inch hi-res color touchscreen that has lots of information on-board, along with a performance mode which allows users to use the screen for hot-cues, beat jump, loops, track searching, and more.  Check out our full video review to see all of the features and get our thoughts on the Pioneer XDJ-1000.


Pioneer DJM-S9 Mixer Review

The new Pioneer DJM-S9 Serato DJ Mixer sports eight RGB backlit pads for each channel, dual USB ports for easy DJ switch-overs, and a new Magvel Pro scratch crossfader that has many unique adjustments and features for todays scratch DJ’s.  The DJM-S9 is like taking the classic DJM-909 mixer and a DDJ-S1 to give you all the Serato DJ goodness one could hope for.  Check out our in-depth video review after the jump!


Pioneer BULIT5 Active Monitor Review

Pioneer has recently released the new BULIT series monitor lineup that is affordable and squarely aimed at DJ’s & Producers who want good performance speakers with a small form factor. The Pioneer BULIT speaker range is nearly identical to the S-DJ X range that we reviewed two years ago as they also come in either the five-inch (BULIT5), the six-inch (BULIT6), or the eight-inch (BULIT8) woofer and have an auto on/off mode to save on power when not in use. These speakers are powered internally by an AB amplifier and Pioneer says that the technology in the woofer design and front port found on these speakers improve air flow with “Groove Technology” for deep and vibrant bass.


Pioneer PLX-1000 Turntable Review

The new Pioneer PLX-1000 analog DJ turntables have the similar layout and basic features of the iconic Technics 1200’s that DJ’s are familiar with along with some “Super-OEM” turntable DNA and other minor adjustments to set it apart from the others on the market.  The PLX-1000 has the Pioneer CDJ looks with the beautiful brushed black finish and silver accents.  Check out our full review and comparison video to see how they stack up.


Pioneer HDJ-C70 Headphones Review

The new Pioneer HDJ-C70 Professional DJ headphones have a compact and lightweight design with 40mm on-ear drivers with comfortable memory foam in the earcups that can rotate 90-degrees in either direction.  The Pioneer HDJ-C70 also has removable and replaceable headband, housing, cushions, earcups, and cables which means they can continue to be a “go-to” pair of headphones for a very long time. Check out our review.


Pioneer DDJ-SZ Controller Review

The Pioneer DJ Division’s new Flagship Serato DJ controller called the Pioneer DDJ-SZ retains many of the features and functions of the widely popular DDJ-SX, while adding more real estate for a bigger and more professional footprint, bigger full “CDJ-sized” jog wheels, Multi-Color Backlit Performance Pads, Dual USB Ports for seamless transitions, a magnetic MAGVEL crossfader, and a full-blown DJM mixer section with Sound Color FX and DVS capability.


Pioneer DDJ-SP1 Serato DJ Sub-Controller Review

Pioneer DJ has released the DDJ-SP1 USB MIDI controller that is designed to work in conjunction with the new Serato DJ 1.5+ software so users can trigger new effects and samples with the 16 velocity-sensitive performance pads, buttons, and knobs in a nice compact package.  The DDJ-SP1 is designed to be used as a “sub-controller” that works in conjunction with a primary Serato DJ controller or a Mixer+DVS setup to offer the advanced features found on the popular Pioneer DDJ-SX controller to all Serato DJ users.


Pioneer DJM-900SRT Serato DJ Mixer Review

Pioneer DJ has finally teamed up with Serato to bring us a new four-channel professional grade DJ mixer that sports an internal Serato DJ Soundcard that is capable of Digital Vinyl Playback of up to four CD or vinyl timecode decks within the full new Serato DJ software now with DVS control.  The new Pioneer DJM-900SRT Serato DJ Mixer has all of the cool features of the DJM-900nexus but with an internal Serato DJ soundcard instead of the internal Traktor soundcard.  Check out our review to see if its just as good as the original.
