Pioneer DJ XDJ-1000 Unboxing [Video]

We have a new Pioneer DJ XDJ-1000 in the lab for the full out video review treatment. Check out our quick unboxing and first impressions video to see all that comes in the package.

Pioneer DJ has just announced that they are releasing a new lineup of "CD-less" CDJ's called the XDJ Line. The new XDJ series features USB ports to connect to computers for digital software playback like Traktor/Serato or to connect USB drives to DJ straight from the user library using Rekordbox. The USB connectivity options and new Touch Screen functions on the Pioneer XDJ-1000 bring it into the new digital DJ age. The XDJ-1000 still has many of the same features and functions found on the current CDJ line and the same familiar layout that DJ's all over the World perform with.

This has been a long time in the making. The CD format is pretty much on its last legs and there is very little reason for Pioneer DJ to continue to manufacture CD drives for a dying format. The XDJ-1000 is available now for $999 and we'll be sure to get this review done ASAP. Check out our full unboxing and first impressions video above to get our initial thoughts on the new shiny device.
