Pioneer Cdj 2000's

Has anyone used, the cdj2000's ? thinking of changing over from the mk3 1000's is it worth the upgrade?

Haven't used them but I don't see the point, especially since most clubs do not own a set yet and more so if just for home use and the reality of their pricing!

A Traktor scratch set-up would do a lot more for a lot cheaper. If you want to spend money on something, get another 2 decks and start using 4 decks. That'd improve your DJing more than a deck upgrade would.

I would like to play with the new mixer though, looks pretty amazing.

Agree 100%.
If you have heavy pockets, get a different toy. Think those CDJ 2000's prices will come down, or else you wont see them in the clubs. Not worth the gamble. My money would be on more CDJ 1000's and an interface like traktor/serato/whatever also.

Have to agree. The 900's are a great upgrade. However, both them and the 2000's are criminally expensive. Most big names have just take delivery of them, so you probably won't see them replacing the 1000's for at least 2 years I'd say.

As said before, maybe upgrade to 4 decks.

I don't mean to hijack the thread but i'm saving up for either the cdj 1000's or 2000's with either the djm 600 or 800. Ill most likely buy them second hand but was wondering which would be the better set up to get? I used to use the numark omni control with traktor but want to move to the cdjs. If anyone has the opinions on which is better let me know!

i have used the cdj2000's and they are a great piece of kit.

But i agree with the rest of the posters here - they are criminally overpriced. If you do go for them, keep an eye on the firmware update on pioneer's website.

I'm not promoting the forum, but reading online, some people have reported problems when updating the firmware on the cdj2000's that affect the pitch control.

I've used them in a new club last year and its great when you can just bring in a fat32 formatted hard drive and link them using the supplied link cables, so all you need is one hard drive or flash drive to feed both players. (just make sure both players are linked together)

The layout is nice and big as well, also just underneath the layout, there is a cool needle function that lets you quick search to a certain part of the track.

Agree with Funky G !!

I agree well over the priced !!! the feel of them is great do i have played them out in clubs and also have my own at home,very handy sticking usb stick or nice big hard drive full of tunes or REkord box or traktor everything works with this Piece of equipment.

True you are ment to update the firmwire on the Cdj 2000 wen new update is there but over time i had forgotten to update it and even do i was using an old version of firmwire it never effected the pitch or anything really not that i have noticed(anyway updated to new version firmwire now only takes 10 min to set up)

Serious piece of equipment if anyone is interested please let me no
Thank you

The CDJ2000 is the new CDJ1000. The 1000 went through 3 MK's and was the industry standard for a long time. The CDJ2000 is just the new version of the 1000, but with alot more bells and whistles. I'll be honest and say, the CDJ1000 and CDJ2000 are not starter pieces of kit in my opinion. From your other threads, I would much more recommend a set of 350's or 400's. They will get your practice on CDJ's which are the exact same set up and layout as they higher end decks. They are also less expensive (Your looking at about €2500 for a set of CDJ2000's)

A common trap is that CDJ's "look cool" and people want them purely on that merit. Is there a reason you want CDJ's over a controller such as the DDJ-T1 or Xponent?

Jesus. Sincere case of all the gear and no idea.

Honestly, why do you have such expensive kit?

But on a positive note, USB hub should work. I'm not overly familiar with the CDJ2000 or Nexus, but they recommend a Ethernet hook up. You probably then have to run the CDJ's off a USB hub and onwards to Traktor. NI have good forums and tutorials.
