With NAMM coming up and Denon DJ already showing off a bunch of new players, one is thinking what Pioneer DJ (or AlphaTheta) will come up with this year.
A lot of people are waiting on an answer to the Denon DJ equipment but I don’t think that will be the case.
If they bring out a new CDJ, my best guess is that it would look something like this:
Yes that’s right: no duel deck capability, no new touchscreen, no music streaming, … Just minor improvements over the NXS2 players, containing only the new technology developed in the XDJ-XZ.
Why? Because it will sell anyways. Just like new iPhones sell when adding some new gimmicks to the old generation. You can’t blame them for doing what is selling. Why would you spend thousands of dollars developing new technology when the old technology is still working? Or if you are developing the technology, why would you release it when you can sell older, cheaper technology for the same price, making more money.
I could be completely wrong here but going by what I have seen them doing for the past years, this is my best guess.
What do you guys think, let me know
