Pioneer DJ has released a new all-in-one controller, the XDJ-XZ.

The device, which can be used with USB drives or a rekordbox-equipped laptop, “feels exactly like you’re using the CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2,” according to the press release. Serato DJ Pro support will be added in early 2020.

“It is the closest thing you can get to a full two deck [Pioneer DJ] NXS2 setup at around a third of the price,” DJcityTV’s Mojaxx says.

The XDJ-XZ is available now at $2,299. Watch Mo’s first look below and stay tuned for a full review.
