Pioneer Unveils XDJ-R1
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Pioneer has unveiled the XDJ-R1, a new wireless DJ system with comprehensive iOS control capabilities. The new system is built around the hardware-based controls and FX found on Pioneer's CD-Js and mixers, but comes enhanced by the use of the company's own remotebox iOS app which allows for much deeper control of the unit and the audio which passes through it using an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch. Furthermore, each XDJ-R1 deck includes a CD drive, and can also support audio from a USB stick or laptop. The XDJ-R1 will hit stores in June with an MSRP of $1,099; a complete walk-through of the new unit can be watched below.
