It has been 15 years since the genesis of Pioneers first CDJ deck. However, changing times call for changing tools. That is why Pioneer's new multi-format player is the natural selection for the next generation of DJs. Introducing a major leap forward for the club standard CDJ series: the CDJ-2000 is Pioneer's new professional player for the digital age.

The CDJ-2000 fizzes with fresh DNA and can play music from multiple sources, including CD, DVD, USB storage devices and SD memory cards. It also comes with the revolutionary music database management software for DJs: rekordbox. Based on Pioneers Prepare & Perform concept, rekordbox works (for both Mac and PC) like the leading music database management software, but is more creative and more DJ-friendly.

The rekordbox software allows DJs to prepare more before their performance and opens a door to tools such as Hot Cue Banks and Quantize, for perfectly synced loops every time. DJs can then export data to a USB or SD device to access vast libraries of music files and perform live without the need for extra equipment or any inconvenient rewiring in the club. No need to burn CDs, simply take your USB device to the club, plug in to the CDJ and play.

Through the industry-first Pro DJ Link, music files and database data on one single USB or SD device can be shared simultaneously by up to four players connected via LAN (local area network) cable. Plus, 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 native control of DVS (digital vinyl systems) via USB. Whats more, it achieves Pioneers highest sound quality to date through an improved audio output circuit, a new audiophile-pleasing Wolfson DAC processor, and a built-in 24-bit/48 kHz sound card.

Naturally, the CDJ-2000's layout is related to its robust, reliable predecessor, the CDJ-1000MK3. However, although it fits easily into the MK3s footprint, it ramps up performance with the largest (6.1-inch) clearest full-colour screen in the business. Below the screen is an industry-first waveform Needle Search/Needle Drop ribbon, so that all the convenience of direct file browsing can now be found in an intuitive hardware format. Add to these features a highly evolved illuminated Jog wheel, and an overall enhanced design, complete with carry handles and Kensington lock, and you have the ideal digital innovation for total performance and seamless synchronisation.

NOTE: We have upgraded the LCD display used in the CDJ-2000 from January 2011 production which may result in a colour tone difference as compared to earlier production units
