Pioneer DJ have released a new version of their all-in-one DJ system the XDJ-RX2. Having been spotted by some eagle-eyed viewers of their recent Rekordbox 5 introduction video, the two-deck RX2 features a 7-inch touch screen, two USB ports and eight multi-coloured pads per deck to control hot cues, loops, beat jump and more.
Round back there's XLR outs, 1/4-inch booth jacks, two combijack inputs for mics and phono and line inputs to use the unit as a two-channel mixer. There's also two USB A ports to smoothly transition between mutliple laptops controlling the included Rekordbox DJ software. The XDJ-RX2 is priced at £1,529. If smaller jog wheels don't do it for you, Numark's affordable NTX1000 turntable is the perfect complement.
