The S-DJ X range of speakers from Pioneer has just been announced, squaring up firmly to the likes of KRK as a basic, high-quality powered monitor range aimed directly at DJs. The front-ported speakers come with 5″ (S-DJ 50X), 6″ (S-DJ 60X) and 8″ (S-DJ 80X) woofers, are front ported, and have an auto-standby mode for their class AB amplifiers. They also have high frequency adjustment for tuning them to your room and their position.
Pioneer promises that the speakers will deliver tight, strong bass, even at high volumes, and have a wide “sweet spot” making positioning easier and practice sessions more fun. The S-DJ X series will be available from the end of September 2013 in black except the 50s which are in white too, at a suggested retail price of €149/£129 (S-DJ50X), €199/£169 (S-DJ60X) and €249/£199 (S-DJ80X). Note that these prices are per speaker.
