Pioneer DJ Introduces NXS2 Flight Cases
Following Pioneer DJ’s launch earlier this year of its new flagship media player (the CDJ-2000NXS2) and DJ mixer (the DJM-900NXS2), the leading DJ equipment brand has teamed up with UK-based case manufacturer 5 Star to produce premium carry cases to allow NXS2 owners to keep their players and mixer safe out on the road.
Built from 6mm industrial plywood with bonded high pressure laminate and reinforced at the edges with aluminum, the cases are designed to withstand the knocks and bangs that a working DJ’s equipment is sure to come up against as it is loaded and unloaded, night after night, week after week. The foam linings cocoon the equipment inside snugly while leaving enough room for necessary cables and accessories. Each case is finished with recessed butterfly catches for securing the lid to the base and a strap handle on the lid for easy carrying.
The cases are designed such that the lid is completely removed during use, giving complete access to the top surface as well as each side of the player or mixer. However, the equipment can remain seated on the bottom of the case during use, which is fitted with rubber feet to provide a solid base for the players and mixer when in action.
Sporting a distinctive all-black finish emblazoned with the icon ‘Pioneer DJ’ branding in white, the cases have a stylish look as well as offering a high level of protection for their expensive cargo. When the lid is secured in place, the cases have a dust-tight seal to ensure that their contents remain clean as well as protected in transit.
The CDJ-2000NXS2 flight case (FLT-2000NXS2) and the DJM-900NXS2 flight case (FLT-900NXS2) will be available later this month (April) and the kind people at Pioneer DJ have even made them cheaper than their predecessors at an SRP of £199 each, including VAT.
