About this deal

The pitch fader has a centre detent, just like other 800-series CDJs, which may prove irritating to some. The misconception is possibly caused by the fact that while Pioneer's earlier dual deck CD-player, the CMX-5000, only had a jog wheel comparable to earlier single deck CD-players for doing pitch bending, the CMX-3000 also allowed distinct jog mode that enabled the user to use the jog wheel for scratching, a feature that thus far was only available on the top-of-the line CDJ-1000. This CDJ allowed playback from USB drives, Audio CD, MP3 CD, act as a MIDI controller, and was a Serato accessory for HID playback. Sadly, we only had one XDJ-1000 due to a shortage of review units, so we weren’t able to test the linked features of the XDJ-1000.

The technical storage or access is strictly necessary for the legitimate purpose of enabling the use of a specific service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user, or for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network. For the travelling DJ, the unit was multi-system, outputting both PAL and NTSC video signals for near-global compatibility. Both the CDJ-100S and the CDJ-200 had similar options to manipulate the CD, however they lacked the vinyl modes of other models.As much as I love and covet the CDJ-2000, I’ve always recommended the better-value CDJ-900 for home use in the past. Released in 2003, [16] in the wake of the CDJ-1000, the player was - and still is - often mistakenly advertised as a 19" inch rack mountable equivalent of dual CDJ-1000s [17] even though the intended target audiences for the products, as well as their comparative pricing, were entirely in different leagues. Loop adjustment features were carried over as well, and a new automatic 4-beat loop feature had been included on this unit.

Cons – The Slip Mode feature kicks you out of an existing loop if you try to stutter a sub-loop within it, while the Rekordbox mobile app is a nice idea but it adds complexity and many will prefer to use a normal USB flash drive with tracks exported from a Rekordbox on a PC. CDJ-3000 supports FAT, FAT32, exFAT,and HFS+ file systems, but does not support NTFS or macOS GUID partitioning.

In keeping with the high quality components of the Pioneer CDJ1000 MK3, gold RCA connectors are fitted along with a digital out for connection to digital mixers such as the Pioneer DJM-800 / DJM-1000, ensuring the highest level of sonic purity available.

Considering that the XDJ-1000 doesn’t cost much more than the CDJ-850 did when it first came out, the XDJ-1000 seems incredibly good value. Designed and engineered in the UK for the Pioneer CDJ-1000 - Trusted by nightclubs and professionals worldwide to preserve the lifespan of their equipment. The Evolution Audio RZ12A V3 is a 12" 1000W two way injection active speaker that has a new upgraded chassis along with improved engineering of the best selling RZ speaker series from Evolution Audio. The XDJ-1000 is completely reliant on digital media instead, which can be loaded from a USB drive or over a wired network from another XDJ-1000 or a Rekordbox-enabled computer.

It also included the ability (unique in Pioneer's DJ product line) to cue from one media source and playback from another all on the same unit, allowing one to DJ two tracks from a single DMP-555 alone. Although this platter was not driven (meaning that it does not rotate by itself) like a turntable, the display in the center showed positioning information for accurate cueing. The buttons at the left-hand side of the screen let you choose an audio source, such as an attached USB drive, a Rekordbox-enabled computer and a linked XDJ-1000.
