Pioneer debuts five new models of DJ-oriented speakers

updated 10:42 pm EDT, Thu August 8, 2013

New line optimized for longevity, bass response

Pioneer Electronics's Professional Sound and Visual Division today introduced a new line of active DJ speakers designed for audio feedback while practicing DJing skills. The new line of DJ speakers are offered in four models; S-DJ80X, S-DJ60X, S-DJ50X and S-DJ50X-W. They feature three types of inputs, built-in equalization, and enhanced sound quality over previous models.

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 speaker line are available with varying size drivers from five to eight inches to fit the listener's taste and environment.

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.
