You never can tell what the folks at Pioneer have got up their sleeves at any given moment, so it’s always worthwhile to pay close attention to what they’re putting out. In this case, Pioneer DJ has unveiled a new digital player that promises to be the company’s most versatile to date. The XDJ-700 is a compact digital deck that comes rekordbox-ready and includes, among many other things, Pro DJ Link, which allows users to share a single sound source with up to four other players (or laptops).
If you want to have a close look at the nitty gritty of the XDJ-700, which is expected to arrive in December, here are just some of the deck’s most attractive features: quantized auto loops and hot cues, slip mode, full-color touch screen, beat sync, MIDI assignable capabilities, and a screen display of recordbox track info including Wave Zoom, Beat Countdown, and Phase Meter. Now, if all of the above has got you hot and bothered, maybe you ought to consider putting this puppy on your holiday wish list for this year. The XDJ-700 is available in December at an SRP of €699, including VAT.
