Pioneer XDJ R1
What, no laptop? That's the idea with the XDJ-R1, a controller that can use your iDevice as a utility screen for music played from USB.
The Pioneer XDJ-R1 complete DJ system is the all-in-one dream: the union of CD/USB decks, DJ software control, a top-flight mixer, powerful performance features and - in an industry first - intuitive remote control via iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
Nice idea and has particular appeal for mobile DJs and others who may want to "ditch the laptop". iPhone/iPad control is nice, but the on-unit displays are basic, and if you're used to software DJing it feels limited in use until you revert to using it with DJ software.
