Pioneer DJ’s high-end products look to be getting a refresh in 2016.
Pioneer DJ has begun gearing up for this month’s NAMM show with a brief glimpse of the new products it will be showing off.
There’s not a great deal of information in the company’s new teaser video, but the title – #NXS2 – suggests an update to Pioneer’s high-end Nexus line, which currently includes the DJM-900NXS mixer and CDJ-200NXS player.
If the commentary from Kaskade is to be believed, expect gear with a “warm sound” that’s “true to what it should sound like” – perhaps with support for lossless audio formats like FLAC.
While the older CDJ-200NXS accepts CDs, Pioneer’s trend in recent years has been to get rid of CD players entirely to focus on USB, smartphone and network playback. We’ll know whether the company has killed the CD in its flagship model entirely when the NXS2 line is revealed on January 12.
