    New! Pioneer XDJ-XZ

    I have to admit I love the looke and layout of this controller, but only 2 channels for stand-alone is kind of silly. And it's HUGE

    A few things to clarify:

    1. The direct competition for this is the Denon MCX8000 - not the Prime 4.
    2. The XDJ-XZ is supposed to be two CDJ 2000nxs with a DJM-900, with a bit of the DDJ-1000 sprinkled in.
    3. The controller cannot play FLAC files. (!!!)

    With that being said, the -XZ seems like a solid upgrade to the XDJ-RX2.

    For worthy reading on this, I'd head over to DJ Worx.

    Pretty cool actually. Not a direct replacement for the RX2.. which was so reasonably priced that it was a no-brainer for most people.. this price is significantly higher, but still tolerable for what you get. That you can plug in CDJ's or XDJ's and link tracks between them is pretty cool, if you want to mix on a third deck.

    Some setting which are found externally on the Nexus 2 like split cue, crossfader curve, and EQ type. Are tucked away inside the utility menu instead but they aren't things you're likely to change often so that's all good.

    I read that DJWorx before I posted this and indeed saw them comparing it to the MCX 8000. I just don't see the point of Pioneer competing against a 3 year old controller. I believe 4 channel stand-alone should at least be an option at this point in the game.

    But then again, what do I know? I've literally been transitioning to Serato only the last few weeks after 30+ years of primarily vinyl, so take my opinion with a grain of digital noobness
