Catch the crowd’s eye with the XDJ-XZ-N. This special new unit with bright, gold-colored parts and design elements brings a luxury look to the popular XDJ-XZ professional all-in-one DJ system for rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro, released in late 2019.
With high-quality aluminum jog wheels and the mic and master output sections finished in a striking gold color, the XDJ-XZ-N includes all the functions and performance features from the original unit. The added color weaves its way through the design in delicately balanced flourishes, creating a bold aesthetic that’s perfect for gigs and installations at luxury venues. So, if you’re searching for a professional setup with a unique look, the XDJ-XZ-N is perfect for every scenario. Playing on the all-in-one DJ system feels exactly like you’re using the CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 thanks to flexible media support, including FLAC playback, and a layout inherited directly from our club-standard gear. And a host of advanced features is right at your fingertips in this robust unit which produces high-quality sound.
Choose whether you want to play rekordbox-analyzed tracks from USB drives via channels 1 and 2 or connect your laptop and use PERFORMANCE mode or even Link Export. With two extra channels, you can mix in audio from external sources like turntables, while Pro DJ Link enables you to browse tracks from CDJs via the 7-inch touch screen on the XDJ-XZ-N and sync them with your mix. You can also perform with Serato DJ Pro; simply connect to a PC/Mac running the software – no license key is needed. Want to play back-to-back? Three USB inputs (type A x 2, type B x 1) make this, and DJ changeovers, a breeze. Download Serato DJ Pro from here.
Using the 3-band EQ on the master output, you can easily tune your sound so it’s optimized for each environment you perform in. If you’re playing gigs with MCs, two separate mic inputs with independent 3-band EQs give you total flexibility and, when you switch on the Feedback Reducer feature, it’ll automatically reduce any “howling” sounds accidentally caused by the mic.
Get creative and animate your sets with 14 professional Beat FX and 6 Sound Color FX taken straight from the DJM-900NXS2 mixer, and trigger software-specific features using the 16 multicolored Performance Pads (8 per deck).
The XDJ-XZ-N will be available in selected regions (only available at specific retail stores in Asia Pacific, the Americas and Latin Americas – not available in EMEA regions) from August 6th at an MAP of $2,299.

To unlock Serato DJ Pro, plug the XDJ-XZ-N into a PC/Mac running the software. The unit also supports Serato DVS (license available separately).
KEY FEATURES OF THE XDJ-XZ-N
1. Striking new gold-colored design elements
A luxury feeling runs through the XDJ-XZ-N thanks to the gold color of the panels for the mic and master output sections and the aluminum jog wheels, which feature a high-quality hairline finish. Across the unit, your crowd will see the special new color on the feet and the headphones terminal, and in design elements such as button names and the Pioneer DJ logo.
2. Advanced features and user experience from NXS2 setup for pro performances
Full-size jog wheels make mixing and scratching feel just like you’re using the CDJ-2000NXS2. And, thanks to On Jog Display, you can keep an eye on important track information via the color screen in the center of each one. All the knobs and controls on the XDJ-XZ are arranged in the same way as those on the NXS2 setup too. Mix with four channels and add texture to your performances with all 14 Beat FX, plus the 6 Sound Color FX, from the DJM-900NXS2.
3. Support for various media and different performance styles
The XDJ-XZ gives you the freedom to play the way you want. Plug in USB drives loaded with rekordbox-analyzed tracks, including FLAC files, or connect your PC/Mac to use our professional performance application, rekordbox. You can even play tracks directly from your rekordbox library via Link Export, so you don’t need to export playlists from your laptop to USB drives. Want to introduce audio from external sources? Connect turntables, samplers, smartphones, and more, to channels 3 and 4. And if you want to perform with Serato DJ Pro, all you need to do is connect to a PC/Mac running the software (license key needed to use Serato DVS).
4. High-quality sound and multiple EQs
Rock your crowd with crystal-clear audio. You can fine-tune your whole mix using the 3-band EQ on the master output and, with 3-band EQs on each of the mic inputs, it’s easy to adjust the sound of either MC. Worried about feedback? Switch on the Feedback Reducer feature and it’ll automatically lessen the “howling” frequency if it occurs.
5. Pro DJ Link seamlessly syncs external equipment for expanded creative options
The XDJ-XZ is the first all-in-one DJ system to support Pro DJ Link. This means you can connect external equipment such as CDJs to channels 3 and 4 and sync audio to your mix. Use the screen on the XDJ-XZ or the one on the CDJ to browse tracks on USB drives connected to either unit.
6. Touch screen and color On Jog Display
Use the 7-inch LCD touch screen and the color On Jog Display in the center of each jog wheel to keep an eye on waveforms, Hot Cues, BPM, and more. With so much visual information available, you can focus on your performance and keep your eyes off your laptop when you’re performing with rekordbox or Serato DJ Pro.
