Yup, looking for that and an MEP-7000 under my christmas tree. Really solid looking piece of gear.

I was all set to buy the Allen & Heath Xone:S2 until the Pioneer came to my attention. The A&H, while known for their superior components & craftsmanship, it doesn't have the features the Pioneer does. Certainly Pioneer can't claim the same pedigree as A&H, but they're not exactly slouches either. I'm looking forward to seeing some reviews on the Mixers earlier performance & quality. The jury is still out:(. -Z-

Yeah, I saw this too. Waiting for it to come out. Hopefully it won't be delayed. Pioneer says late September or early October. It's really nice to see a DJ mixer with more then one or two mic inputs. I would have liked all three mic inputs to be XLR but I can live with the 1/4 inch for the third mic. Two mics are enough for 98% of my gigs so it should be fine.

I'm also happy to see a DJ mixer with two zones. This isn't uncommon on a live sound mixer but it's not at all common on DJ mixers. The Allen & Heath XONE:464 has two zones but it's also massive (12U).

I'm not sure how I would use the Mixer as a MIDI controller just yet but I'm sure I could figure out something. The integrated 3 stereo channel sound card means I only have to hookup 1 USB cable from your laptop to the mixer. That's nice.

Lot's of good stuff in there. It does seem a bit expensive but I'm probably going to go for it anyway.

Looks nice but it has 4 mic inputs counting the one on channel 1 and the DJ mic, very nice feature for a DJ mixer.

It only has three mic inputs; one XLR on the top, another XLR on the back and one 1/4 inch on the back shared with Channel 1.

I got a look at this mixer on the Mobile Beat Tour. Very "sexy" mixer for sure. Santa has already been told about this one!

Santa, being the practical and all-knowing gift giver, probably won't bring me one of these since I have yet to wear out the DJM-3000 I got a few years ago!

;)

But they sure are nice!!!

Looks like a nice piece of gear. I like the advanced talk over feature.
Looking forward to a review.

It's true that there aren't many dj mixers with dual zones and I have found it a handy feature to have on the American audio commander plus that I use.

I believe it is discontinued now but you can still find them floating around on ebay on occaison.

Just another option if you can't afford the 1275.00 MSRP of the new pioneer.

I just bought an MEP-7000 last week...Found an open box in pristine shape at guitar center for $899... OMG! Nice unit... I have also pre-ordered my djm-5000

$999 is M.A.P...... Rob at DJ Supply Quoted me a great price!

Oh so the DJ mic is Mic channel 1, ok

P.S. The effects only apply to the Mic channels. This doesn't include the third mic input shared with Channel 1.

Have any of you thought about how you might use this mixer as a MIDI controller? My DJ software had MIDI support but I don't know what aspects of the software I would want to control from the mixer.

REVEALED: How Steve Lynch Managers to Pay Less Than Anyone Else for Gear!

"You don't need to charge Jedi Lynch full price for the new Pioneer Mixer...in fact, you will charge him well below street price & kick in a MEP-7000 at a B-Stock rate."

Oh, heck. Just when I decided (looking at the expense side of my QuickBooks reports) that I was all through with new equipment purchases for 2009!

I currently use a Pioneer DJM-3000 mixer and have been mighty pleased with it. But the extra mic inputs, the XLR zone-out, and a few other features and spec's make this mighty appealing.

One thing I don't see noted in Pioneer's current description of this unit is BPM measurement. I find that a very handy feature on my DJM-3000 -- although I must say it is FAR from perfect, and sometimes doesn't do the job. I wonder if the DJM-5000 will measure and display the BPM (from whatever channel one specifies, and/or from master output, and of course in CUE mode). And if so, whether it will do so more reliably than the DJM-3000.

There's no BPM measurement on the 5000. Nor does the 5000 have effects that the 3000 has. The effects on the 5000 can only be applied to Mic channel 1 and 2.
