I agree. Pioneer is the leader in DJ equipment for sure but if I really did reviews, I would give their equipment a 6/7 stars out of 10. Mostly because of Rekordbox. Is that fair? Sure it is. If we are forced (Nexus, features that only work with RB) to use RB with the Pioneer equipment and Rekordbox holds the equipment back, the equipment is only as good as the software.
So IMO, Pioneer should spend more time and money getting RB above the bar Vs. making more equipment that will only be held back by RB. Do we really need a new CDJ/DJM right now? NO! Nexus just came out and isn't that future proof or something like that? So RB must take top priority! Not just patches to fix things not working correctly but also evolve RB into a program DJ's really want. Pioneer should want its customers to say, RB is all I need and that clearly is not the case so far as many customers state, I want this program or that program instead.
