Pioneer DJ XDJ-XZ professional all-in-one DJ system: Official Introduction

Find out more about the XDJ-XZ here 👉

Looking for a professional setup for events, a bar or club, or your private studio? The XDJ-XZ is perfect for every scenario. With flexible media support and a layout inherited directly from our club-standard gear, playing on our new all-in-one DJ system feels exactly like you’re using the CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2. A host of advanced features are right at your fingertips in this robust unit which produces high-quality sound.

Choose whether you want to play rekordbox-analyzed tracks from USB drives via channels 1 and 2 on the XDJ-XZ or connect your laptop and use rekordbox dj or even Link Export mode. With 2 extra channels you can mix in audio from external sources like turntables, while Pro DJ Link enables you to browse tracks from CDJs via the 7-inch touch screen on the XDJ-XZ and sync them with your mix. Soon, you’ll even be able to perform with Serato DJ Pro, when compatibility for the software becomes available via a firmware update, coming early 2020. Want to play back-to-back? 3 USB inputs (type A x 2, type B x 1) make this, and DJ changeovers, a breeze.

Using the 3-band EQ on the master output, you can easily tune your sound so it’s optimized for each environment you perform in. If you’re playing gigs with MCs, 2 separate mic inputs with independent 3-band EQs give you total flexibility and when you switch on the Feedback Reducer feature, it’ll automatically reduce any “howling” sounds accidentally caused by the mic.

Get creative and animate your sets with 14 professional Beat FX and 6 Sound Color FX taken straight from the DJM-900NXS2 mixer, and trigger software-specific features using the 16 multicolored Performance Pads (8 per deck).

The XDJ-XZ is available now at an SRP of €2,199 / £1,899 including VAT/at an MAP of $2,299 USD excluding sales tax.

To use the XDJ-XZ with rekordbox dj, update to the latest version of the software [] and activate the included license key. The all-in-one DJ system also supports rekordbox dvs (license available separately). From early 2020, you’ll be able to unlock Serato DJ Pro by plugging the XDJ-XZ into a PC/Mac running the software and from then, the unit will support Serato DVS (license available separately).
