Pioneer already has a bunch of DJ gear that is aimed at professional music-makers. The company has now announced some new gear that is aimed at the people dancing to music too. The new line of audio gear is called STEEZ and is targeted at the sort of folks that like to have dance competitions.
There are three STEEZ products and they will all connect to a PC via free software that lets the user adjust and customize the music. The three products include the STZ-D10S-L “Solo,” STZ-D10T-G “Duo,” and STZ-D10Z-R “Crew.” They all support MP3, WMA, AAC, and LPCM with 4GB of storage inside, and include a credit card-sized remote. The systems also allow for adjusting tempo, track cueing and dance battles, when used with the included MIXTRAX PC music software.
The Solo has a 2.4-inch LCD, iPhone and iPod dock, and a pair of 40mm full range drivers for $299 (USD). The Duo is a larger device that has a rugged design and spot for docking the iPhone or iPod. It has 4GB of storage, a 2.4-inch screen and can run of AA batteries or an AC adapter for $349. The last is the large Crew with a 3.5-inch screen, dual 25mm tweeters, dual 75mm woofers, and a pair of dedicated 135mm subs. It also has a sealed iPhone dock and sells for $499. All will launch in November.
