The company is set to release the most expensive DJ setup yet.
Pioneer DJ has released full details for its “festival-ready” new Tour range, whose CDJ and mixer models feature their own 13-inch touch screens.
The CDJ-TOUR1 and DJM-TOUR1 mixer look like the company’s high-end Nexus range, but with their dedicated screens and built-in CPUs for controlling Pioneer DJ’s Rekordbox software, each model is more akin to a dedicated DJ computer.
The range was first teased at this year’s NAMM trade show in prototype form, but Pioneer has now confirmed that the high-end DJ gear will be available to buy in July.
As the name suggests, the range is aimed at touring DJs used to playing on big stages, with features including a display shade to deflect the sun’s glare when playing outdoors, five-port LAN hub for connecting up to five laptops and two independent headphone outputs for back-to-back sessions.
The DJM-TOUR1 is also the first to connect directly to Pioneer DJ’s new social platform KUVO, which means DJs will be able to broadcast information about what tracks they’re playing to their fans in real time, anywhere in the world.
As you’d expect, the Tour range doesn’t come cheap: Pioneer DJ has announced that a single CDJ-TOUR1 will cost €4,999 and the DJM-TOUR1 will set you back €5,999.
If the Tour range is a little out of your price range, the company last year released a no-frills media player to suit more modest budgets: the XDJ-700.
