Pioneer DJ has upgraded one of their most popular USB-only multiplayers to create the XDJ-1000MK2. Even more features are inherited from the CDJ-2000NXS2 including its 7-inch full-colour high-resolution touch screen, enhanced track browsing functionality and support for playing high-quality FLAC and ALAC files. Quickly finding the perfect track to play next is easy thanks to Track Filter and the new Matching feature.

The XDJ-1000MK2 also retains key features from before, including the Qwerty touch-screen keyboard for keyword searches, and the large rotary dial for scrolling. Plus, you can colour-code your USB devices and the illuminated USB port will reflect that colour, so you instantly know what’s on each device.

To add even more creativity and variety to your performances, you can connect the DDJ-SP1 controller (sold separately) and use its large Performance Pads for tactile control of many of the new or improved features on the XDJ-1000MK2, including its eight Hot Cues.

The XDJ-1000MK2 is available from September at an SRP of €1,299 including VAT.
