Browsing the internet sphere this Thursday, I stumbled on what is being claimed to be a legit leak on a MK2 version on the Pioneer DJM 900. The 900 first came out about 5 years ago, and has become a staple in the DJ booth. It came Traktor certified, then a Serato certified version came out. So yeah, it was Pioneer making sure their mixer would be the go to choice in the DJ booth.

Pioneer has recently released the new BULIT series monitor lineup that is affordable and squarely aimed at DJ’s & Producers who want good performance speakers with a small form factor. The Pioneer BULIT speaker range is nearly identical to the S-DJ X range that we reviewed two years ago as they also come in either the five-inch (BULIT5), the six-inch (BULIT6), or the eight-inch (BULIT8) woofer and have an auto on/off mode to save on power when not in use. These speakers 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” for deep and vibrant bass.

Today Pioneer announced a brand new affordable and compact media player and controller called the XDJ-700. The new Pioneer XDJ-700 replaces the original CDJ-350 as the smaller and lower-priced deck option for DJ’s who want club-like performance in their own personal setup without breaking the bank. The XDJ-700 is fully compatible with Rekordbox, has a USB slot for drives, and can also be linked to other players and mixers with the Link cable for deck sharing, BPM sync, and much more.
Early this morning Pioneer DJ hit the industry with some serious news. First, the new Rekordbox 4.0 software was revealed as a fully-fledged DJ software that will work with all Pioneer current DJ controllers and players and will soon include upgrade paths for Video plug-ins and DVS plug-ins for vinyl and CD timecode users. Next, the Pioneer team announced two brand new controllers that will work with the new Rekordbox 4.0 software called the Pioneer DDJ-RZ and DDJ-RX.
Today, Pioneer has announced their newest DJ headphones, the HDJ-700. It looks to me like the new HDJ-700 will likely replace the entry-level HDJ-500 Headphones that we reviewed some four years ago. The HDJ-700 headphones have an “on-ear” fit come in a few different color schemes. The HDJ-700 have a replaceable/removable cable, and one earcup can swivel for easy one-ear monitoring. Check out the quick press release and intro video inside.
