Conclusion

Maker Pioneer has been a beehive of activity recently; with their recent major product announcements, amidst the Tour Series players, video DDJ-RZX and the audio, and now the newly launched XDJ-1000MK2. To be honest, the MK2 release came as somewhat of a surprise considering that the original CDJ-2000NXS2 is relatively still fairly fresh while the 700 was actually not released too long ago.
