New DJ Equipment Reviews
Pioneer DJ has finally teamed up with Serato to bring us a new four-channel professional grade DJ mixer that sports an internal Serato DJ Soundcard that is capable of Digital Vinyl Playback of up to four CD or vinyl timecode decks within the full new Serato DJ software now with DVS control. The new Pioneer DJM-900SRT Serato DJ Mixer has all of the cool features of the DJM-900nexus but with an internal Serato DJ soundcard instead of the internal Traktor soundcard. Check out our review to see if its just as good as the original.
NOCS is a relatively new Swedish-based company that creates high quality headphones and monitors for consumers and pro users alike. The new NOCS NS900 Live Professional DJ Headphones took two years to develop as the headphones went through many design changes until the performance was good enough for the rigors of a professional DJ. The NS900 Live headphones are now available in the US through Mixware.net who sent us a set for the full review treatment.
Sennheiser has been a trusted DJ headphone company for quite some time with their HD25 headphones sitting on top of many professional DJ’s heads during their performances. These headphones have been out for over 25 years, so Sennheiser thought it was a great time to release their brand new lineup of three new performance headphones that is sure to please DJ's and Producers across different performance needs and cost levels. We will take a look at the top-tier HD8 DJ headphones to see how they make it through the tests.
The Pioneer DDJ-SB is the recently released entry-level Digital DJ controller for the Pioneer and Serato DJ lineup. This new compact and fully USB-Powered controller has the familiar 16 Performance Pad layout, aluminium-top jog wheels, built-in Low Pass/High Pass filter knobs, and comes bundled with the Serato DJ Intro software for the very low street price of only $249.
The Denon DJ MC6000MK2 is an update to their original top-of-the-line controller which adds Serato DJ compatibility, Slip Mode, Aluminum-Top Jog Wheels, the Loop Roll feature, and more. The MC6000MK2 is a high-powered and well-built four-channel DJ controller and standalone mixer that has the versatility to work with all popular DJ software. This versatility makes the MC6000MK2 a mobile DJ’s dream with that same durable build quality and compact footprint that made the original a huge success.
The Pioneer DDJ-SR is a compact and professional Digital DJ Controller that fits nicely within the new Pioneer DDJ controller range as a trimmed down two-deck version of the DDJ-SX which is still capable of controlling all four virtual decks of Serato DJ. The new Pioneer DDJ-SR has a smaller footprint than the DDJ-SX and adds a new PAD PLUS button that gives the 16-performance pads even more functions than before.
AIAIAI headphones have been on the professional DJ and Production block for a few years now and they are a Danish based company with a great design and engineering team that pushes the envelope with their minimalistic approach to Professional Headphones. The TMA-1 DJ headphone is their professional DJ model headphone and this is the version we will focus on for this review. They are available in different colors, but we have a special Stones Throw Record Label limited edition set that comes with the Stones Throw record label brand logo embossed on each earcup.
The Reloop Terminal Mix 8 is the newest and top-tier Four Deck Digital DJ controller with a very high quality build, smooth-oversized jog wheels, and an intuitive 16 Performance Pad section that control popular features like hot cues, loops, slicer, and sampler. The Terminal Mix 8 also comes bundled with the full Serato DJ software that unlocks all of the potential of this powerful controller straight out of the box.
