As 2017 begins, we are taking a quick look back at the best selling DJ equipment for 2016. The third in our series includes the top three best-selling DJ controllers with the sales info provided by our friends at
store that has all of your DJ and production equipment needs covered when you need new gear.
DJ multimedia players have been heavily dominated by Pioneer DJ for the past 10+ years and that seems to play a HUGE part in their controller range dominance as well. The Pioneer DJ controllers that support both Serato DJ and Rekordbox formats are still the best selling controllers of all of 2016. Check out the below list of the best-selling controllers of 2016:
The Pioneer DDJ-SX2 is a great full-sized four-channel Serato DJ controller that can also work with Rekordbox DJ if a separate license is purchased. It has lots of features and is updated from the original DDJ-SX we reviewed some years ago. The DDJ-SX2 sits right in the middle of the range with the DDJ-SZ/DDJ-RZ and DDJ-RZX sitting at the top and the DDJ-SR sitting right below it in terms of size. The DDJ-SX2 seems to hit that sweet spot for DJ's who want a solid controller with full-level features.
The Pioneer XDJ-RX is an all-in-one Rekordbox DJ controller with a built in screen to view all track and playback info. This is also powered by Rekordbox which is used in the huge Club systems by DJ's all over the world with CDJ's. The XDJ-RX doesn't need to be connected to a computer as everything is all built-in. This two-channel controller has lots of features including RGB pads, good construction quality, and on board effects.
The Pioneer DDJ-SR is probably one of my favorite DJ controllers of all time for Serato DJ. It came out over 3yrs ago and has not yet seen an update but that doesn't stop it from being a top-3 seller for 2016. The perfect compact form factor, durability, and full Serato DJ license makes this controller a true standout among the others. Mixars has just unveiled their similarly featured and sized controller at NAMM 2017 called the Mixars PRIMO. We'll see if they are able to make a dent in the Pioneer DDJ-SR compact domination.
This is some very interesting info and we'll have even more top three categories shortly to let you know what is coming out on top. Big shout-out to
