NAMM 2016: Pioneer CDJ-2000NX2 and DJM-900NX2


Just in time for NAMM 2016, Pioneer has taken a giant leap forward with updated versions of its two quintessential pieces of hardware, the CDJ-2000NXS and the DJM-900.

The CDJ-2000NXS makes a “giant leap forward,” outdoing its predecessor (CDJ-2000NXS) with an even bigger multicolor touchscreen, featuring a QWERTY keyboard and filterable searches to help find your next track more easily. Additionally, the unit includes two quad banks and a built-in 24-bit/96kHZ interface.

The DJM-900NXS2, successor to both the DJM-900NXS and DJM-900, is Pioneer’s first-ever 64-bit mixer, and reportedly delivers a “warmer, more nuanced sound.” In addition to new, adjusted EQ and fader curves, the DJM900NXS2 also features enhanced controls for FX, an independent send/return, two USB inputs, and four phono jacks.


The DJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 will be available beginning in February for  £1,699/€2,299 (2,900 USD) each. For more info, visit Pioneer DJ
