Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.’s Professional Sound and Visual Division today introduced a new line of active reference speakers designed for great audio feedback while practicing DJing skills. The DJ speakers are offered in four models, S-DJ80X, S-DJ60X, S-DJ50X and S-DJ50X-W (white) and feature excellent sound quality, improved bass response and reliability, three types of inputs, and built-in equalization, useful for DJs who want to achieve the highest accuracy in sound reproduction.
“DJs spend hours a day practicing their mixing and performance skills, and unfortunately, most of them listen to the music they’re creating on speakers that aren’t appropriate for reproducing quality sound,” said David Arevalo, director, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “Pioneer’s new active reference speakers are designed for home/small areas and offer exceptional sound quality to provide great feedback so DJs hear subtle changes in the music they’re creating. In essence, these speakers are designed to enhance DJ performance.”
For maximum audio performance, increased bass output and reduced unwanted resonance, each speaker utilizes a highly rigid medium density fiberboard (MDF) for the construction of its enclosure and bass reflex ducts. Additionally, to optimize sound quality and increase reliability, Pioneer uses woofers made with aramid fiber cones and soft dome tweeters infused in magnetic fluid. Four models of the S-DJ speakers are available with varying size drivers from five to eight inches to fit the listener’s taste and environment.
Inputs and Extras
All speaker models feature three types of inputs (XLR, TRS and RCA) for connection to different devices such as DJ equipment, computers, and portable devices. For convenience and power conservation, the speakers also include an Auto Standby mode that automatically turns itself off when there is no input signal sensed after 25 minutes and powers back on when signal input is detected.
Three of the four models are offered in black with the S-DJ50X-W available in white. The S-DJ80X, S-DJ60X and S-DJ50X/S-DJ50X-W are sold individually and will be available in September with suggested retail prices of $299, $239, and $179, respectively.
