Pioneer is set to start rolling out their brand new, two-channel DJM-S9 battle mixer to stores in the next few weeks. We decided to send our review unit over to two DJTT friends who know Pioneer DJ gear very well - DJs Cotts and Ravine - and have them take it for a spin and share their thoughts. Watch the full review inside:
As a Pioneer DJ dealer, we regularly get updates from them on what gear is starting or ending production. Concurrent with the announcement of the XDJ-700 player, we found out two new interesting changes on Pioneer’s product line: the end of the Serato-ready DJM-900SRT and a new beginning for the DJM-350, which had quietly gone […]
We've had a lot of requests recently to shed a bit more light on Pioneer DJ controllers and how they stack up against each other.

Read on for our analysis of the lineup and recommendations for all types of DJs.

We've had a chance to jump into the studio with the brand new Rekordbox 4.0 DJ software and explore how it works - and importantly, what the most exciting features are that set it apart from Traktor and Serato. Check out the full video inside of Ean demonstrating the software using the upcoming Pioneer DDJ-RZ controller.
For all of Pioneer's current DJ market dominance, they still face strong competition in the controller, mixer, and vinyl turntable arenas. But in the media player/CDJ/digital turntable world, they're nearly completely unchallenged. It's been a year since we first saw the XDJ-1000, but with the CDJ-2000Nexus now 3 years old, it's about time that we saw an update to the top of the line player from Pioneer. What will it look like, and what will it do differently? Read on and share your own speculation inside.
DJing has advanced from a two deck affair to reasonably incorporating four decks in more advanced sets, but there hasn't been a DJ software that easily allows DJs to venture beyond "simple" four deck mixing. For the DJs looking to mix on eight decks (with full Stem file support) the time has come with Mixed in Key's new DJ software, Flow 8 Deck.
After opening up their beta of an upcoming DJ software one month ago, Pioneer DJ is finally revealing a first look at the Rekordbox DJ software interface, as well as two new controllers that are designed to be used in parallel with the software. Read more about the software inside and see the DDJ-RX and DDJ-RZ controllers.
