Pioneer DJ Parent Company AlphaTheta Announces New Products and Branding at NAMM

One of the most surprising developments at this year's NAMM conference was the announcement by Pioneer DJ's parent company of a new line of DJ products, branded AlphaTheta. The AlphaTheta Corporation is a major umbrella of audio companies that includes Pioneer DJ, KUVO, rekordbox, TORAIZ, and Serato. Now, AlphaTheta is adding a new brand to sit alongside its legacy Pioneer DJ brand that bears the conglomerate's name.

As part of this exciting announcement, AlphaTheta is dropping two new DJ products: the OMNIS-DUO portable all-in-one DJ system and the WAVE-EIGHT portable DJ speaker. Both products are ultraportable DJ equipment that allow you to effortlessly perform in numerous environments and scenarios.

First off is the OMNIS-DUO, a complete portable DJ system that is ideal for throwing DJ parties with your friends anytime, anywhere. This is facilitated by the industry-first Bluetooth Playback function, which allows you to drop a track directly into your set from a Bluetooth-enabled smart device. You can then adjust volume and EQ, apply effects, change the tempo, use Hot Cues, and scratch, just like you would with tracks prepared in advance.

The system physically sports a dual-deck and mixer interface as well as a touchscreen with two levels of brightness, light and dark. The compact size, modest weight, and rounded corners make it comfortable to use, easy to look at, and a dream to take with you to your next party or engagement. You can fit the system neatly in a backpack, and with the option for Bluetooth collaboration with your friends, you can avoid bringing along your laptop or cables.

Built-in battery power means you can play for up to five hours without any power supply, optionally reducing the amount of gear needed for transport. When it's time to top off your power, you can connect the AC adapter or plug a 45W or greater power bank into the USB-C terminal. Eco mode extends battery life and the party.

Finally, you can enjoy multiple music sources for any DJ style thanks to support for USB-A drives and SD cards. You can connect to a Windows or macOS computer via USB-C to use rekordbox Performance mode. Outputs are plentiful as well, with professional XLR output and RCA jacks, which are perfect for home monitor speakers.

The WAVE-EIGHT is a portable wireless DJ speaker that is an ideal companion to the OMNIS-DUO, or any Bluetooth-enabled audio source. With innovative SonicLink technology, you get ultralow-latency wireless communication for quick and easy setup, completely cable free. This technology is the first of its kind and allows for transmission speeds that are much higher than standard Bluetooth, letting you mix without missing a beat.

The speaker itself sports a newly developed 8" driver, a Vortex Bass Accelerator for clear and powerful bass, and a highly efficient Class-D amplifier. This speaker will bring vibes and serious sonic punch to parties, and using the SonicLink connection, you can expand your setup to cover larger areas. For example, you can use two speakers for immersive stereo or a third as a dedicated subwoofer for a club-like atmosphere. Each of these modes (Mono, Stereo, and Subwoofer) can be instantly selected via a dedicated switch.

Like the OMNIS-DUO, the WAVE-EIGHT is designed to help you throw a party no matter where you go. A full battery charge provides eight hours of play. The unit also features an IPX4 rating, making it resistant to inclement weather and ideal for outdoor use. The integrated pole socket lets you mount the speaker on a stand for extra height and coverage. And when it's time to find the next party location, the WAVE-EIGHT sports an extendable handle, casters, and additional grab handles for painless transport.
