NAMM 2016: Pioneer has unveiled the CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2, the latest versions of its flagship DJing deck and mixer.

Said to be a "giant leap forward", the CDJ-2000NXS trumps its predecessor by offering a larger, multi-colour touchscreen with QWERTY keyboard and search filters for faster track selection. There are also two banks of four Hot Cues and a built-in 24-bit/96kHz audio interface.

The DJM-900NXS2, meanwhile, features Pioneer's first 64-bit mixing processor and is said to be deliver "a warmer, more nuanced sound". The EQ and fader curves have been fine-tuned, and there are enhanced FX controls. On the connectivity side, there's now an independent send/return, four phono inputs and two USB ports.

You can find out more about the DJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 on the Pioneer DJ website. They'll be available in February priced at £1,699/€2,299 each.
