Pioneer DJ New Pearl White CDJ-850 & DJM-850
Pioneer DJ has recently announced a new pearl white version of the popular CDJ-850 digital mulit-player and DJM-850 DJ mixer. We reviewed both the CDJ-850 and the DJM-850 and both are solid performers no matter which color combination they come in. Pioneer DJ has been producing white versions of their other popular DJ gear in the past and it seems to do well enough for them to continue with the trend across their lineup. I wonder if that new Pioneer CDJ-2000Nexus will also come in white? Only time will tell... Check out the press release and links inside for more info.
