Summary: This thing is a beast. I used to have CDJ 800s in the past and these are far better in every way. The link, traffic light, record box, and hooking up USB stick is fantastic. They are great players, but before you purchase a pair of these, think about getting the 900s or 850s. About half of the clubs I spin at are still using 1000MKIIIs or 900s.

Summary: Pioneer!!! On the dark side of things... What is the deal with you not fully supporting Serato SL 2/ SL3/ SL4 like you did with the previous CDJ2000 Gen. 1 decks?

Excerpt: Welcome to my review of the latest deck in Pioneer's CDJ range. The Pioneer CDJ 2000. Some time ago a very sad day was upon me. Having been a DJ for well over a decade my Technics 1210 mk5G's were part of me, they were ranked higher than the girlfriend. I'd tuck them up at night, read them stories of clubs conquered and dreams of playing to crowds in Ibiza.

Excerpt: Evolution directe de la CDJ2000 de la marque. Le (+) Ce qui séduit au premier coût d'oeil, c'est le soin apporté à la finition globale de la platine ; pour mémoire la CDJ2000 donnait l'image d'une platine tout plastique assez rédhibitoire:( inacceptable à l'époque vu son prix !). On revient sur des boutons simili aluminium c'est + classe. Cette nouvelle version est clairement orientée connexion pc. L'ergonomie dans sa globalité est toujours bien pensée.
