Not all news is good news and for those of you who were hoping to get your hands on one of Pioneer’s new DJM-900nexus mixers we do have some bad news. The company has announced that they have found a flaw in some of the earlier products and is therefore recalling units and delaying availability of more.
According to the company a headphone compatibility flaw was discovered. They found that when connecting headphones from other manufacturers to the unit while the volume is set high, it triggers a safety power down circuit.
The issue has already been rectified at production line level by Pioneer but those units that were released to Europe and the US before the issue was discovered will obviously need to be returned and swapped for a new model at the nearest retailer.
Of course because of the delay in availability, now set to be available in April, it might be worth checking ahead to ensure a new model is available for the swap. More details about the issues and what is being done about it click on the Pioneer link above.
