Meet the new Pioneer CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2
Pioneer is taking a giant leap into the future, as we unveil the CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2. The result of 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.
They’ve given the CDJ-2000NXS2 a 96 kHz/24-bit sound card and added FLAC/Apple Lossless Audio (ALAC) support – paving the way for more producers to create music in this top quality format. Browsing and track selection are even more intuitive with the high-res touch screen, Qwerty keyboard and Track Filter search. The screen also packs in a multicoloured wave display, more detailed rekordbox™ information and instant access to all the most popular features. The player now has two banks of four Hot Cues – eight in total. And, if that isn’t enough, you can connect the DDJ-SP1 controller to add even more Hot Cues and loops and control four players from one device using Pro DJ Link.
The DJM-900NXS2 takes mixing to another level with our first ever 64-bit mixing processor for a more natural, warm and detailed sound. The controls are even more responsive, with a new gain structure, improved EQ and fader curves. The Sound Colour FX section now has a parameter knob for even more nuanced manipulation. Plus an independent Send/Return means you no longer have to choose between Beat FX and external FX: you can connect your choice of external FX controllers, including apps on your iPad, and layer it on top of the on-board FX. Add to that four phono inputs, DVS support and two USB ports for easy connection to PC/Mac – and the DJM-900NXS2 is a crucial tool versatile enough for any professional booth.
“I played a couple of tracks on the DJM-900NXS2 and I was quite astounded, it sounds like no other Pioneer DJ mixer I’ve heard,” said Andy Kayll, sound engineer at DC10. “Going up from 32-bit to 64-bit, the sound is so much more accurate and natural, you can hear it's much warmer.”
The CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 are available from February 2016.
