The new Pioneer S-DJ X lineup of monitor speakers were scattered all around the Pioneer DJ Booth at the 2013 Atlantic City DJ Expo and I was lucky enough to get a full video walk-through of the new speakers directly from the Pioneer staffers.

Every year, Pioneer DJ has the biggest and best exhibit in all of the DJ Expo Land. This year, Pioneer has its entire new lineup of controllers, CDJ's, mixers, and speakers on-had for everyone to use and purchase. The new DJM-750 four-channel mixer was on display with a set of CDJ-850's. The platinum limited edition Nexus setup also made an appearance. The XDJ-R1, DDJ-SX, and S-DJ X speaker lineup were all setup and ready to go and we have an exclusive S-DJ X speaker walkthrough coming shortly.
Just as I'm heading out the door to drive less than an hour away to the DJ Expo in Atlantic City, Native Instruments sends me a new press release about their new Traktor DJ Cable. The Traktor DJ Cable is now available for only $19.99 and it works as a DJ splitter cable which turns one eighth-inch output into two separate output sockets. This is imperative for DJ's as one output is used to cue (or pre-listen) to the music in the headphones while the audience listens to the master output through the speakers.
