The Pioneer DJ DDJ-SZ2 is a very decent upgrade of the original DDJ-SZ controller. Most of the features are the same as the original unit,with some added controls for Serato DJ’s pitch and key features. Apart from that it’s top notch, yet expensive piece of kit.

If you are looking for a fantastic Serato DJ controller and money is no object, then the DDJ-SZ2 might be your weapon of choice. It’s – very – expensive, costing almost 2.000 dollars, but for that amount of money you do get one or two things in return.

The DDJ-SZ2 is big, and that means enough space for many features, but also for a real “pro gear” feel: this is the closest you would come to playing on an actual DJM/CDJ rig in terms of play controls. Big jog wheels, very similar to the ones on the CDJ-2000NXS2, a spacious, fully equipped mixer, double USB input… The DDJ-SZ2 has it all.
