We all to often say things like "the new industry standard" or "changing DJ's thought process" but with the DJM-A9 both of those statements ring true. Our team have over 60 years of combined experience in the industry and the A9 has us all scratching out heads with where can Pioneer DJ go next. Technology has come a long way since the DJM-500 that we all fell in love with. But some how that feeling has returned with the new DJM-A9. The sound quality is next to none obviously Pioneer DJ had extensive development and fine-tuning as well as new components including ESS Technology 32-bit high-quality A/D and D/A converters.
All to say to keep it short and sweet.... See and hear this for yourself. Chances are you will see it at your next festival or nightclub. Pioneer DJ raised the bar once again.

SOUND COLOR FX WITH WORLD’S FIRST CENTER LOCK
Turn on the brand-new Center Lock feature and, when you’re using the popular Sound Color FX, each knob will stop turning when you reach the center position so you can’t go too far and accidentally switch from the hi/low to the opposite parameter
