Pioneer entered the DJ industry in 1994, with the launch of the worldâ€™s first flat-top DJ player, the CDJ-500. Since then, Pioneer has been devoted to developing products that deliver world-firsts together with enjoyment beyond customersâ€™ expectations.
After twenty (20) years in the DJ business, Pioneer is entering an exciting new phase, re-launching as Pioneer DJ Corporation, with backing from the world-leading KKR investment fund.
Over the past two (2) decades, DJs have shifted from using vinyl to CDs, and from CDs to music files such as MP3. Now the use of cloud storage and the growing popularity of EDM (Electronic Dance Music), sees the industry arrive at its fourth wave. The birth of Pioneer DJ in such an era of change represents an unparalleled opportunity.
