Pioneer DJ introduce the new DJM-A9 mixer
AlphaTheta Corporation have announced the release of the DJM-A9 next-generation professional DJ mixer from its Pioneer DJ brand. The 4-channel unit raises the bar for club standard mixers – boasting huge upgrades compared to its predecessor, the DJM-900NXS2 – with stunningly clear sound quality, enhanced playability and connectivity, and a host of new features to help you take your performances to the next level.
You’ll sound better than ever when you perform on the DJM-A9. An ESS Technology 32-bit high-quality A/D converter is built into the channel input section and D/A converters of the same type are featured in the master and booth output sections to produce crystal-clear, natural-sounding audio on the dancefloor and in the booth for any genre of music you play. The sound from the microphone input and headphone outputs has also been enhanced through fine-tuning and improved construction with carefully selected new components.
Stunningly clear sound quality – Your performances will sound better than ever on the DJM-A9, which takes the audio quality from the DJM-900NXS2 to another level. This next-generation club sound comes from extensive development and fine-tuning of existing technology from previous units, plus brand-new components.
Evolved playability – Feel like you’re playing a musical instrument when you get your hands on the DJM-A9, which inherits the familiar layout from the DJM range but includes updated controls and components for accurate mixing and instinctive scratching. Increased spacing around the EQ knobs gives you the room to twist your fingers, and high-grade, bright LEDs in the channel section make it easier than ever to get a visual grasp on sound levels.
Sound Color FX with world’s first Center Loc – Turn on the brand-new Center Lock feature and, when you’re using the popular Sound Color FX, each knob will stop turning when you reach the center position. This means you can twist the dial as quickly as you like, taking the effect right up to the maximum of the hi or down to the minimum of the low parameter, without the risk of going too far and switching to the opposite parameter.
Newly advanced Beat FX – The Beat FX section, a long-time favourite element of the DJM series, has been significantly enhanced for the DJM-A9. A new colour display helps you to quickly and accurately understand the status of the selected effect, and it features lighting that corresponds with the X-Pad’s horizontal arrangement, enabling more intuitive control with a simple finger slide.
Enhanced mic section – In response to the evolving needs DJs have when using microphones during live streams and club sets, the mic section of the DJM-A9 has been developed so you can enjoy more control and add extra creativity to your performances on the mic. The phantom powered input means you can connect a high-quality condenser mic directly to the DJM-A9, a feature never seen before on a DJ mixer.
Expanded connectivity – With a Bluetooth input which you can route to any channel on the DJM-A9, you can wirelessly drop audio tracks into your sets from other devices such as smartphones and use all the mixer’s features and effects to change the sound. The Multi I/O section has an independent channel selector so external effects can be used separately from Beat FX, giving the DJM-A9 true send capabilities.
