LONG BEACH, Calif. -- August 8, 2013

Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.’s Professional Sound and Visual Division today
introduced a new line of active DJ speakers designed for great audio feedback
while practicing DJing skills. The DJ speakers are offered in four models,
S-DJ80X, S-DJ60X, S-DJ50X and S-DJ50X-W (white) and feature excellent sound
quality, improved bass response and reliability, three types of inputs, and
built-in equalization, useful for DJs who want to achieve the highest accuracy
in sound reproduction.

“DJs spend hours a day practicing their mixing and performance skills, and
unfortunately, most of them listen to the music they’re creating on speakers
that aren’t appropriate for reproducing quality sound,” said David Arevalo,
director, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA)
Inc. “Pioneer’s new active DJ speakers are designed for home/small areas and
offer exceptional sound quality to provide great feedback so DJs hear subtle
changes in the music they’re creating. In essence, these speakers are designed
to enhance DJ performance.”

Audio Quality

For maximum audio performance, increased bass output and reduced unwanted
resonance, each speaker utilizes a highly rigid medium density fiberboard
(MDF) for the construction of its enclosure and bass reflex ducts.
Additionally, to optimize sound quality and increase reliability, Pioneer uses
woofers made with aramid fiber cones and soft dome tweeters infused in
magnetic fluid. Four models of the S-DJ speakers are available with varying
size drivers from five to eight inches to fit the listener’s taste and
environment.

  *Groove Technology: To improve airflow through the port of the enclosure,
    Pioneer engineered the port hole with grooves to help direct the sound
    waves smoothly. The technique decreases standing waves from the mouth of
    the port, resulting in smooth bass and midbass output, with more impact.
  *Convex Diffuser: Matching the bass output of the speakers, the soft dome
    tweeters are set in the center of a convex diffuser optimizing output and
    dispersing the sound energy in both left and right directions for wider
    imaging. For a cool cosmetic look, the diffuser also illuminates in white
    when the speakers are powered on.
  *Class AB bi-amp: Driving the speakers is a highly efficient Class AB
    amplifier in a bi-amp configuration to power the tweeters and woofers
    separately.
  *EQ Controls: The speakers also enable users to adjust high-pass level
    output via the built-in equalizer from the back of the speaker. The
    equalizer adjusts the high frequency range in one decibel increments (-2dB
    to +1dB), tailoring the audio output to the user’s listening preference.

Inputs and Extras

All speaker models feature three types of inputs (XLR, TRS and RCA) for
connection to different devices such as DJ equipment, computers, and portable
devices. For convenience and power conservation, the speakers also include an
Auto Standby mode that automatically turns itself off when there is no input
signal sensed after 25 minutes and powers back on when signal input is
detected.

Three of the four models are offered in black with the S-DJ50X-W available in

September with suggested retail prices of $299, $239, and $179, respectively.
