Overview

The Pioneer DDJ-SR2 is an update to the original DDJ-SR which was one of my top-three favorite controllers of all time for Serato DJ. The DDJ-SR2 has all the good features of the original unit and it adds RGB backlit color pads, XLR Balanced outputs, a Serato DJ club-kit ready soundcard for turntable or CDJ Timecode playback control, and Pitch N Time and Pitch Play controls. It also comes bundled with the full version of the Serato DJ software as well as the Serato DJ Pitch N Time package to get you started. Check out our full Video review and see the review summary below to see if the DDJ-SR2 is right for you.

Pioneer DDJ-RR Unboxing [Video]

The New Pioneer DJ DDJ-RR is very similar to the DDJ-SR for Serato, but this one is built specifically for Rekordbox DJ software and it includes RGB backlit pads that the original did not. The DDJ-RB and DDJ-RR are also the first controllers to support PC Master Out, for playing master output through your computer’s internal speakers or connected desktop speakers, while using the controller for your headphones at the same time. The DDJ-RR also has a new Sequence feature that allows DJ's to perform in new ways. Check out our quick unboxing video to get our first impressions on the new DDJ-RR.
