At this year’s IFA International conference being held in Berlin, Pioneer announced its CDJ-2000, 15 years after the arrival of the first Pioneer CDJ deck.
It has been 15 years since the launch of Pioneer’s Ô¨Årst CDJ deck (a deck that allows analogue music control from CDs), which led to the CDJ-1000 series. And now it’s time for something completely new – the CDJ-2000, Pioneer’s new professional player for the digital age.
The CDJ-2000 can play music from multiple sources, including CD, DVD, USB storage devices and SD memory cards. It also comes with the rekordbox music database management software.
Rekordbox allows DJs to prepare better before their performance. It also opens a door to tools such as Hot Cue Banks and Quantize, for perfectly synced loops every time. DJs can export data to a USB or SD device, giving themselves access to vast libraries of music Ô¨Åles.
No need to burn CDs – simply take your USB device to the club, plug it into the CDJ and play.
Through the Pro DJ Link, music Ô¨Åles and databases on a single USB or SD
device can be shared simultaneously by up to four players connected via LAN (local area network) cable. In addition, the data history of each DJ set is automatically saved and can be made into a playlist that can be loaded back into rekordbox.
Another key facet of the CDJ-2000 is its advanced HID (human interface device) and MIDI capabilities for the native control of DVS (digital vinyl systems) via USB. The player
Also achieves Pioneer’s highest sound quality to date through an improved
audio-output circuit, a new audiophile-pleasing Wolfsan DAC processor and a built-in 24-bit/48kHz sound card.
