Paid $850 on ebay. Needed a good dual CD player for gigs and the Numark unit offered a feature set that was just right and met my requirements.
What's not to like? This unit features pitch lock, pitch control at 6 percent, 12 percent, 25 percent and 100 percent. There's also a built-in beatkeeper that gives accurate BPM with auto-mixing. You can have two complete loops with three hot stutter starts per CD. Not to mention the built-in effects including: reverse, flange, warp, bleep, chop, slide and kill. There's so much more functionality, but these are the primary features that really caught my eye.
There's not much to NOT like. I can't really add much in this column except maybe that the unit is a bit pricey. But then again, you get what you pay for.
First rate construction and quality will hold up to years of gigging abuse, weddings, drunk people at parties, etc.
A great dual CD player at a price point that's a little more than I wanted to pay, but heck, it's the quality and feature set that will provide the pay back. I'm a big believer in not skimping on equipment because you always end up wanting the better model anyway.

Trs good double cd, the effects are radical and very easy to handle.
The "beatkeeper" is mortal and can play four loops of 4 titles DIFFERENT live without ever DCAL! By Alcher against mine after a year, other functions are in very good state remains.
I bought it was released, that can be c'tait problem of youth.
It is really worth, I'll buy the CDX-1 (I have cdj 1000) because it has features in common with the cdn-88, which convinced me the knowledge Numark.
Very good cd: really clean loops and snap to the beat when logged into the machine (auto or manual bpm lorqu'il not found), ergonomics really well thought out, easy to use, the effects are nice.
Only drawback, signal to noise ratio is pretty bad (permanent breath), but fortunately largely lost in the uses of type disco ...
