Summary: I purchased this 2nd hand item in January this year and after 3 months had some issues with it. Guy from Temple Records the seller was in fantastic assisting me with getting the CDJ working again which I am truly grateful for .He went out for his way to help me get the best price possible to get the CDJ serviced etc .His manner was very helpful and kind , Excellent Customer Service !!
Excerpt: I first encountered these babies whilst DJing at M.O.S, didnt have much time to get au fait that night, even so worked well with rock solid build and fantastically stable, just what a DJ looks for. Sound quality not bad at all, Im sure that will improve with pioneers next instalment of the range. I have played with since that night and yes, they are `THE BEST OF THE BEST` today at least, thats why they are industry standard.
Excerpt: I have owned these amazing players for around a year, the first thing to say is they sound brilliant, very accurate indeed. If you use these with MP3s i would strongly recommend only using high bit rates, or purchasing Platinum notes, as the crowd will head the difference in quality and volume while your mixing.
Excerpt: As a DJ ,everywhere i go i see pioneer cd players ,in clubs, bars ,friends houses & everyone bangs on about how they are the best & that they are industry standard. At the end of the day they are only a cd player. Yes,they perform brilliantly at what they do. Rock solid & reliable as with all pio pro cd players but all they do is play cds. O.K so you can control dj software apps too.
Pioneer CDJ 1000MK3: 5 stars ... why anything less
29 June 2012
Summary: Pioneer! You know the brand, so you already know they offer amazing quality and reliability along side the most up to date technology. The CDJ 2000's are what any DJ who is serious about what they do should own, it took me quite a while to afford a set but I can assure you they are worth ever single penny!!
Summary: I have been a DJ since I was old enough to know what one was,, starting with the oldskool turntables it took a while to adapt to the sudden change in new technology but like anything in this day and age nothing stays new for long because there's always something bigger and better in the pipeline, however with Pioneer and the particular CDJ 1000 MK3 i beg to differ!!
Pros: A sophisticated, easy to use and professionally designed and build CDJ for the professional.
Cons: Costly, average UK retail price around £999 - £1100
Summary: When I first used this bit of kit, I would have given it 5 stars. Everything about it is head and shoulders above other companies' CD decks, from the hot cues, to the vinyl/CDJ modes, to the waveform view, to the sleek simple buttons. I used these in a club for a few months before we upgraded to the CDJ2000's, and can honestly say I had hardly any problems with them.
Summary: I have found this CDJ the better choice compared to other leading brands. I currently use two of these in a nightclub enviroment and couldn't work without them. They help produce high quality, beat matched mixes each time. You have the ability to use two different modes (know as jog modes) for either CDJ or vinyl, so it is completely upto the users preference. These functions make scratching much easier compared to turntables.
Summary: The Pioneer CDJ1000 has become really an industry standard in recent years for Djing in the industry. Most clubs have them installed, and the majority of events you go to Djs will use them exclusively or alongside traditional vinyl decks. The CDJs are a very good and clever bit of kit, down at a super basic level, they are CD players....they play CDs, but they allow a DJ to manipulate the music in many ways.
