Today, the Pioneer DJ group has announced the new S-DJ X monitor lineup that is affordable and squarely aimed at DJ's who want good performance speakers in a small form factor. The Pioneer S-DJ X range comes in either the five-inch (S-DJ50X), the six-inch (S-DJ60X), or the eight-inch (S-DJ80X) woofer configurations and have an auto on/off mode to save on power when not in use. They 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” that smoothly emits low frequency sounds from the front of the speaker which makes it possible to output strong drum kick and bass sounds so that they can be used by DJ's for performances.
The original Pioneer X-DJ speaker range was a bit overpriced for most DJ's and the new S-DJ range is more affordable and aimed at DJ's who don't want to spend so much money on a set of compact loudspeakers for small performances and bedroom or studio use. The S-DJ line also has a good number of inputs which makes it easy to connect virtually any audio device out there. They've got a set of RCA, XLR, and TRS to satisfy all users.
The S-DJ X series will be available by the end of September, but I'm sure they'll be at the 2013 Atlantic City DJ Expo Next week, so be sure to keep it locked for our full video coverage of the event.
The S-DJ X monitor range will be available in black (the S-DJ50X will also be available in white) at a suggested retail price of $179 for the 50, $239 for the 60, $299 for the 80. These speakers will be sold individually. Be sure to check out the full video introduction and head on over to the
