Pioneer DJ Unveils CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2


Days after CES wrapped up in Las Vegas, and two weeks before Winter NAMM kicks off in Anaheim, CA, Pioneer DJ has unveiled the new iterations of its popular deck and mixer, the CDJ-2000NXS2 (pictured above) and DJM-900NXS2. A missive from the company states that the vast refinements to both product was informed by “years of feedback from DJs of every genre, the latest additions deliver the highest possible sound quality, finely tuned features and unprecedented levels of control.”

Both units will are available in February 2016, both at an SRP of €2,299, including VAT (that’s roughly US $2,500).

Specs for both units reveal an array of inventive improvements. This begs the question: Are you ready, willing and able to upgrade?
