Music professionals will be getting some potentially sweet new toys from Pioneer early next year as the company is preparing the S-DJ08 and S-DJ05 2-way speakers. Both products are claimed to offer 'excellent' sound quality, audio parameter control and built-in linear equalization.
The speaker sets provide four types of inputs (XLR, TRS and two sets of RCA) which enable easy connectivity to PCs, DJ equipment or portable devices, pack a 2.5 cm soft dome tweeter, a 5-inch (S-DJ05) or 8-inch (S-DJ08) woofer, a chimney-style heatsink and a bi-amp circuit that drives the tweeter and woofer separately.
"Whether it's producing music at home, DJing or simply auditioning music, consumers will realize the high quality sound they're hearing out of these new Pioneer DJ speakers. We've also added the ability for DJs and producers who have made a career of music performance and enabled them to make quick audio adjustments to volume, power, equalization and channel inputs via a really cool looking manual controller," said David Arevalo, senior marketing manager, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA).
The S-DJ08 and S-DJ05 speakers are set to become available in January 2011 priced at $1,199 and $899, respectively.
