Audiofanzine FR's review

Pioneer DJM-400
Originally written by beatrouble on Audiofanzine FR.

See manufacturer's website

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use: two channels, two mics, effects processor.
Easily understandable manual, perhaps a bit complex when it comes to effects, especially for beginners... But the unit is very intuitive to use.


SOUNDS

Very good EQ with perfect cuts.
Main disadvantage: noise. I connect them to my monitoring speakers. I use them with Ableton and I get a lot of noise... When mixing, the noise is not audible.


OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it for over 2 years.
Previously, I owned a 3-channel Gemini but it cannot be compared.

Pros:
Good-quality effects although some of them are unnecessary.
Overall quality: rugged construction (the controls are sturdy)!!

Cons:
The filter would be better if it had only one control, like on the DJM-800 and 700.
One additional channel would be nice.

Good value for money. It's the price to pay for professional equipment. If it's too expensive for you, buy a Gemini, Numark or Behringer but you might have an ugly surprise...

I would definitely buy it again and I recommend it to all DJs who want a REAL quality mixer.

pvesco08/11/2012

pvesco's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" it holds the road"

Pioneer DJM-400
4 CD inputs (or 2phono and 2CD)
mic convertible into auxiliary inputs: one can connect another console example for decent mic.
intuitive and easy effects section
equipment is robust and enduring por turn
Unsymmetrical outputs on RCA jacks

UTILIZATION

Common functions could not be more convenient and easy, very pleasant to use equipment without large poor ergonomics.
EXCEPT the order of micro (slide the microphone ... :-( that's rocker or push!), If you want to animate while mixing, much easier to be open before ...
Anyway this is a fault that recurs in Pio (or other brands of DJ concurrent tables: one is best and right microphone with bass and treble adjustment, a talkover or more inputs of poor quality.

SOUNDS

EQ on stereo channels good and bad on mic channels.
Its correct and good dynamic
non-symmetrical output so if we want better level of appeal to an intermediate device (equalizer or sound mixer) (Quality ...)
Breath? When we send Wts, what we seek is the sound quality and is more than correct. If you bump gently, with little volume output, the breath is absent.

OVERALL OPINION

In use for some evening but I know that run 15 hours on 24 ...
What I like is the use ... It is much easier and more intuitive than a 600,
What I do not like it's microphone inputs (see above).
I would have liked even better sound and balanced outputs (the audio output of a 800 for example)
Value for money, even secondhand, is often good, we can say that it is the business of the moment. 300 Euros was a good occases that can turn a serious way.
The News Pioneer does it anyway not replaced in its price range: The 350 has only two entries only, and is more dedicated to an activity already home. The 250 is a low-end. The above models are a little too focused on a specific use or bulkier.
One can connect as many sources as CD on a 700 or a 400 ... 600 But it takes much less space. Used a 700, it costs two DJM400 ... Some said it is good to start with, I think she may continue to be as pure, this is a professional tool to last.

The equalizer is quality and I have never seen breath.

OVERALL OPINION

Table purchased in 2010 with the pack 400 (x2 CDJ), it was done better at the time in this type of product. Very accessible for grip after 2 years of loyal service honest (about ten hours / week) nothing moving. Of course in 2012 controllers have flowered well, more accessible, lighter, more versatile ... anything? Finally use my turntables to change (now used mainly as soundcard for Traktor) not one of my table that is a real gem, better than the DJM 350 I think that fits too between two products, between the gadget and pro table. Indeed with the DJM 400 effects box is a real box Pioneer in its operation with the same principle that controls its big sisters (700, 800, 850, 900 ...) It would be a shame to miss.
The DJM 400 is perfect to start on Pioneer, with a box effect is interesting and a very solid base analog (especially if you make a case).

Pioneer DJM-400
See the manual for specifications.

UTILIZATION

Simple setup, and you plug it mixes, no worries particular.

I have not read the manual:-D

Pioneer has a knack for making products recognizable at first glance, the DJM 400 is no exception to the rule and for those who are accustomed to Pioneer products, everything falls perfectly under the fingers. And you can switch to different models DJM carefree, we soon find its bearings.

SOUNDS

Although not a model of clarity of sound, it is not the last, perhaps thanks to digital? ...

EQs are effective but are not exceptional, I think it's fair emieux that.

Found no obvious blows.

OVERALL OPINION

It has been 4 years since I use it, I bought used (6 months) to a member of AF.
She has done a lot of evenings, she worked for more than a dozen hours sometimes without any problems, she worked at a party to over 35 degrees, it heats but does not break!

Before I had the DJ Technics SH 1200, good sturdy table but not age well at the knobs and breath.
Numark also a ...
But the Pioneer is on top.

What I like most: almost everything! It is a small two-lane, of course, but well used (effects, sampler) it can be daunting in the evening ... and I much prefer having my DJM 400 with its 2 channels and some effects used at 100% a big DJM 2000 which will never be pushed to its maximum capacity (see a lot of DJ's ...)
It is small and not heavy, easily transportable, coupled with my two CDJ 200, this is a trio who, despite the years, remains relatively cool!

What I like least? The EQ, for form ... and the absence of send / return ...

400 euro bought 4 years ago, for the number of evening and I did with the miles she has traveled and seen its state (impeccable!!) I would say value for money excellent. Nothing to say about the reliability and robustness.

With experience, I would do this choice without hesitation.
I was looking to change my set-up, but actually, what that Pioneer offers the best in the range 2-way? The DJM 909 reaches retirement and does not justify its price. The DJM 350 offers fewer opportunities.

I remain faithful to my DJM 400 ...
