Pioneer DJ's new Tour system is ready for life on the road

Planning on playing some big festivals this summer and need the hardware to match? Then you just might be in the market for Pioneer DJ's new Tour system, which looks to be the ultimate DJ touring rig.

The festival-ready setup comprises the CDJ-Tour1 and DJM-Tour1, which both mirror their smaller Nexus 2 siblings in terms of layout but add 13-inch touchscreens.

Everything about the setup is 'arena-grade', with high quality 32-bit D/A conversion, 96 kHz/24-bit high resolution playback, and reliable connectivity to the house systems without any loss in sound quality.

There's also Pioneer DJ's proprietary Pro DJ Link to seamlessly link up with your new SP-16 (when it arrives), and built-in KUVO gateway to get those sets shared with the community.

The CDJ-Tour1 and DJM-Tour1 will be available from July 2016 with SRPs of €4,999 and €5,999 respectively, including VAT. Just in time for that headlining slot at Big-Summer-Electric-Dance-Sun-Fest 2016!

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
