Pioneer has finally launched a product which has been a long-time coming: a USB-only, CD-less “multi-player”. This is a move that has been predicted by many for quite a while, so this comes in under the category of “it was only a matter of time”.
The XDJ-1000 features a 7″ full-color touchscreen, Rekordbox integration (including the ability to play directly from the laptop, should you desire), an on-screen keyboard for track browsing (finally!), and full Serato (HID) integration.
The unit will debut late November (2014) and will run $999/€999/£829. Let’s take a look at what the new unit has to offer!
