Pioneer releases DJ monitors

Pioneer DJ has launched a series of active monitor speakers designed with dance music in mind. The S-DJ X models are loaded with speaker technology from Pioneer and pro audio sub-brand TAD to deliver accurate monitoring, a strong bass and clear mid to high frequencies.

The S-DJ X series is optimised to produce a rich bass and a tight, punchy kick even at high volumes. The five-inch, six-inch or eight-inch woofers are crafted from stiff aramid fibre, and mounted directly on thick baffles, to produce a robust base with no unwanted resonance; while the highly rigid bass reflex ducts feature grooves to reduce resistance.

The S-DJ X series boasts one-inch soft dome tweeters that use DECO convex diffusers from TAD to deliver a wide sweet spot. Newly designed Class AB bi-amplifiers in the tweeter and woofer units ensure a well-balanced response with no loss of clarity.

The S-DJ X series comes with a range of inputs, volume control, high frequency adjustment and auto standby with Auto ON.

The line-up comprises the six-inch and eight-inch in black, and the five-inch in black or white, and is available from the end of September 2013.
