Pioneer’s Limited Look: Platinum Editions of RMX-1000, DJM-900N, CDJ-2000

Pioneer has built a reputation recently for launching brand-new colors for their products – and NAMM week is set to be no exception! The industry giant is announcing brand new limited runs of chrome-finished CDJ-2000Nexus (4,000 units), RMX-1000s (1,000 units), and DJM-900 Nexus (2,000 units).

Check out everyone’s favorite Pioneer effects master James Zabiela tearing it up on these limited editions below:

Obviously we’re fans (didn’t you see the chrome mirror tops on the Spectra?) but it’s certain to bring a bit of chagrin from DJs who already feel like their equipment gets smudged with every single use. Perhaps Pioneer should include a few extra microfiber cloths to encourage frequent polishing!

With Pioneer, price is always a factor – here’s the details from Pioneer’s full press release:

A system, which includes two CDJ-2000nexus-M and one DJM-900nexus-M, will be sold as a set with a suggested retail price of $8499, while the Platinum Edition RMX-1000-M will be offered separately with a suggested retail price of $1199.

In addition, included with each CDJ-2000nexus-M Platinum Edition will be one Pioneer premium digital cable (DAS-DGC020R) ($149 value).

At that price, smudging shouldn’t be an issue – you’ve probably got a butler to keep your gear nice and polished between every beatmatch!

Is all-chrome-everything for you? Let us know what type of finish you’d like to see Pioneer roll out next on their units.

    Im a disabled dj who has purchased this kit let me tell you it is a living nightmare to keep clean really really hard and because of the mirrored surface you have to be soooo carful I asked pioneer for help but no joy 🙁

  • So nearly US$10,000. No thanks. I’d use it if I was given one, but you can get something that will do most the most important aspects of what that system can for less than 1/20th the price… and not have something with autosyncing installed that every rich twit without any practice can use now.

    Sorry i don’t get it???
    How being Ripped by pioneer for a outdated CD player will ever be worth it.
    I’ll stick to my controller for a fraction of the price.

  • $@LT

    homey fucking killed it, big ups player!

  • 32digits

    It’s really ugly.. nothing more nothing less

  • DJ_Mamaburra

    I want this same hardware in Zebra prints with a hint of leopard…LOL…

  • great demo. i think i still have the record by LFO that used a similar vocoded sample using lfo.

  • Jordan Reifkind

    you should make chrome chroma caps!

  • Owen

    They would look really good in a strip club

  • That performance was as awesome as this chrome hardware is idiotic.

    Why would Pioneer have to pioneer anything? The Technics turntable was on the market for about 25 years and they only ever made a Mk II once, I think. No one was complaining about it never getting upgraded. In fact, every DJ wanted to have exactly that turntable. IMHO Pionneer has put a great product on the market in the past 15 years, gave it a few necessary updates and they should keep doing that.

  • Pioneer keeps getting me excited with these teasers and then disappointing me when they announce what it actually is.

  • pioneers of?

    • sambo

      Releasing a new colour with a bloated price tag like they’re giving the fans what they want, obviously.

    “Shit! NAMM is coming up and we forgot todevelop nuw stuff!”
    -“Boss, we are running out of paint!”

    …”Whell, I was back in the factory this morning and those unpainted units didn’t look half bad. Let’s sell them!”

    • spike

      an unpainted unit is the original black.

  • whens the pink one coming out…
