View this Thread in Original format
evo8
Im fed up of using Traktor and want to go back to mixing with cdj style decks
whats the best option here? something like a used cdj400?
Not wanting to spend too much money but want something decent all the same
Needs to have a USB input for a memory stick, not going back to burning CDs :D
thanks

This has to be the funniest and idiotic statement i have ever read.

Your right about the DAC part, The cdjs use different wolfson DACS, but not the pitch part. The CDJ-350 has 02.% accuracy just the same as the cdJ-2000. We all know there is hardly much difference between a 500 DAC and 1,800 one.

Yes, but in CDJ's you're actually talking about a $5 DAC chip or a $20 DAC chip at most between those two models.

Clay is somewhat right about them lasting, at least for their current models. I still have a CDJ500 kicking about somewhere - yes, the giant square one from the mid 90's and it still works. That thing has done at least 5,000 hours and been treated like yet all of the buttons and jog still work.

Or I've got a CDJ800 in my current setup and the cue button is going dodgy at under 1,000 hours. Still though, that's not bad for a cheap consumer piece of equipment.

@EVO - I know what you mean. I've been playing with both traktor and serato but I hate having to look at a screen. The budget pio offerings such as the CDJ350 are crap though compared to full jog wheel CDJ's. If you don't mind the smaller jogs then fine, but otherwise, just save up and get some CDJ850's or 900's.

I don't ever use the Jog Wheel for mixing.

Although that's a pretty low price for that deck, that's $3400 (before tax) for two ing CDJ's.

I don't exactly when pioneer brainwashed people in to thinking they needed to spend that kind of money to mix two tracks together but you have to give it to them, they know how make suckers.

i got my pair with out tax. DJ deals doesn't add tax. I have ableton and i do promos there too and to m5g's. I got these because I like to feel comfortable right before my gigs and I make plenty of money on my own. I guess you mean the people that can't afford them that have plenty of skills. :)
