Here’s a look at Pioneer’s new all-gold limited edition DJ controller

Pioneer is well known for its DJ gear, especially its flagship DDJ-SZ Serato controllers, and now its limited edition model is scheduled to go up for sale in the coming days. Sporting the all gold exterior seen in the image above, the DDJ-SZ-N boasts all of the same features as its standard edition counterpart but with very limited availability…
Outside of the shiny new exterior, the DDJ-SZ-N remains unchanged from the standard edition with full-sized jog wheels, multi-function performance/cue pads, dual mic inputs, dual USB soundcards, sampling/effects across all four channels and Pioneer’s exclusive Magvel crossfader.
Much like the gold treatment its DDJ-SX model received previously, there will only be 1,000 golden SZ-N models available worldwide, each with a custom laser engraved serial number.
But with a suggested retail price north of $2,000 and very limited availability, these are certainly only going to be of interest to serious collectors. Some of the much more affordable options from Pioneer like the DDJ-SB line, along with highly rated options from Numark and others (like this $100 iPad/Mac option for just $67 at Amazon) will likely get the job done for most.
The new golden DDJ-SZ-N has a suggested retail price of around $2,500 and is set to go up for sale from various retailers in March.
