The Pioneer DVJ-1000 is a turntable console that has a high price tag on it. But it is well worth the money spent. I have used for about 6 sets so far and I love how easy it is to use and even more importantly it is reliable. Using this unit to create visuals to my set was a huge plus. You can use this to perform audio sets and mix in video effects with it as well. With most of the clubs that I was working in having monitor set up for visuals this unit was a must!
Using video with your audio is something that you will need to practice with and a unit like this does not come cheap. I do no recommend getting this unless you are serious about permanently adding visuals. It cost way to much just to only have access to video monitors on limited occasions. It will take a lot of practice to work with both mixing audio and video with the DVJ 1000 and the manual will only take you so far.
The build and make up of this unit is very solid. All of the materials are very solid and nothing at all is cheap. The video and audio output is very good, and at a high quality. The on screen display will show you track numbers and content on DVD’s as well as MP3’s or whatever source you are using to bring into it. The screen colors are not very bright and dynamic though and it is nothing like using a computer screen.
The sound quality is something that I think cannot be replicated with this unit. No matter where you are pulling your audio from, if it is running through the DVJ-1000 you can guarantee a high quality output of audio. All of the knobs and buttons on this unit are made well and the platter has an excellent feel. It is by far the best feeling platter that I have ever used for a portable unit.

Hi everyone! In the club or I puff right now, it has acquired DVJ X1 so I had the opportunity to "play" with 6 hours pdt! and I want to give as even a small avie I think it's great but I have encountered a problem during my sets, I explain: if you create a cue point on the track 2 of your DVD and you spend ke on any track, if you r'appuyer commend you on cue directly on the Cue Track 2 ca pe so be careful how bizarre and surprising the audience twice Paser music (clip) with an interval zik it was to the point that I enjoyed the least! The scratch is really the best of the live image sequences in video image quality and the rest of the mix and perfect image (we must know the clips)! I had seen him tour the Salon du SIEL 2006 but mix it with other things! I think it's still too expensive because you have to buy LCD or plasma to give the BSG in the eyes of clubbers! and if we compare the two I think it's too overpriced! Personally I would like to acquire two but I can not afford! See you soon Musically DJ RMS
