Pioneer XDJ-RR – Pioneer DJ’s most compact NXS2 style system yet
The new Pioneer XDJ-RR is the smallest all-in-one DJ system to feature Pioneer’s highly revered NXS2 style layout and effects.
The Pioneer XDJ-RR is essentially the smaller brother of Pioneer’s XDJ-RX2, coming it at a considerably more affordable price-tag and still offering a variety of the high-end features that set the XDJ-RX2 apart. Pioneer did away with the touchscreen, cut down on the number of performance pads and removed a few of the built-in effects – in an effort to reduce the price-point of the newer Pioneer XDJ-RR.
Some of the key features that make the new Pioneer XDJ-RR so competitive are, firstly dual-USB and dual-headphone ports, this makes it a great option for back-to-back duo acts or seamless transitions in the club. The second USB port also doubles as a mix recorder, giving you the ability to set track markers and other nifty features.
The layout mimics that of the more popular Pioneer club series of CDJs and mixers, with clear separation between the sections on the Pioneer XDJ-RR. This makes it a great option for beginners who want to practice techniques that can be replicated on a club system.
Who is the ideal candidate for the new Pioneer XDJ-RR, and how much cheaper is it?
The XDJ-RR features a 7” colour display that offers insight into your track waveforms, tempo, key and cue-points. You also have a browser, to search through your USB drives, with various tagging and filtering options. It is not a touch display like on the XDJ-RX2, however there are controls alongside the screen to make full use of it.
The Pioneer XDJ-RR can be used both as a controller or a standalone all-in-one system, making it a great system for mobile DJ’s looking to lighten the load or a home practice setup.
It’s set to retail at USD $1099 (Around R17k excl. duties) which is almost 40% cheaper than the XDJ-RX2!
