XDJ XZ - The Powerhouse DJ System
Looking for a professional setup for events, a bar or club, or your private studio? The XDJ XZ is perfect for every scenario. A host of advanced features are right at your fingertips in this robust unit which produces high-quality sound.
The option to choose whether you want to play rekordbox-analyzed tracks from USB drives via channels 1 and 2 or connect your laptop and use rekordbox dj or even Link Export mode. Add to that two extra channels, you can mix in audio from external sources like turntables for those purists, or the new age Pro DJ Link enables you to browse tracks from CDJs via the 7-inch touch screen and sync them with your mix. Serato DJ Pro is now compatible since the latest firmware update giving versatility to those who want it.
There's more, want to throw down back to back or vs another DJ? Three USB inputs (type A x 2, type B x 1) make this, and DJ changeovers easier than ever. Have an MC that's covered as well - two separate mic inputs with independent 3-band EQs give you total flexibility with feedback reducer for that unwanted scream when the mic is accidentally re-amplified as it gets to close to a speaker.
Pioneer DJ's innovation continues as always in the realm of FX with 14 professional Beat FX and 6 Sound Color FX taken straight from the DJM-900NXS2 mixer. Add to that 16 multicoloured Performance Pads (8 per deck) for finger drumming and hot-cuing as seen in our amazing Pioneer DJ XDJ XZ preview with DJ Fever below.
Leading All In One DJ System
The Pioneer DJ XDJ XZ as we mentioned above offers a few standards that you would see with a regular club mixer like the EQ and gain sections as well as your sound color effects that all offer a robust club feel. On the top of the unit you have your master section this offers an additional EQ section as well so you can EQ the main output but remember this will change the overall sound coming out of the controller.
On the back you have one USB port that goes directly to Serato DJ Pro or Pioneer’s Reckordbox you also have inputs for line and phono inputs great for those who have two turntables set up for say DVS to be to play Serato with four decks using channels three and four. You can also play regular vinyl through the mixer the same way.
The biggest standout we see with the XZ is the screen, this screen is the first time on a controller or any type of player currently out where you get the full colour waveforms from Serato directly inside the screen this is great all you're beat grids that are available along with a bunch of other information below it. Such as the track information and also an overview of the song which you can also see inside the platter with the cue points and also some of the artwork.
So that's our overview on the Pioneer DJ XDJ XZ controller, all together this thing is amazing remember the screen is our favourite features the full wave forms for Serato DJ Pro and Rekordbox DJ with full colour cue points, beat grids as well as all information – HUGE WIN! Add to that loading your tracks directly there on screen for deck DJing (no more laptop neck) whether you're using the platters or using DVS with turntables. We know why the XDJ XZ controller is hot property right now. Definitely our pick of the year.

Pioneer DJ XDJ XZ
Always excellent service
Recently upgraded to the XZ and I can't fault it. I have the Pioneer PLX1000 Turntables set up through 2 Channels and the setup is perfect.
Service in the shop is always 2nd to non, I wouldn't go anywhere else for DJ Equipment.
Had to wait a short while for the product as it was on back order. I was kept up to date throughout and it actually arrived earlier than expected
I pre-ordered the Pioneer XDJ XZ from Synthetic pro. At the time these were really hard to get hold of. I enquired about the waiting list / lead time on receiving the XZ and it was significantly shorter than most other DJ Stores. Steve was great, kept me informed from the point of ordering to the point in which it arrived (around 6 weeks later)
A great small business who i will undoubtedly use again in the future.
