Pioneer demonstrated reliability and robustness in its cdj 1000 mkII, which remains a reader friendly design, intuitive, and relatively "easy to use" in the dark of a DJ booth. But for the same price for an equivalent reliability, Denon turntables worth a cdj 1000, and may be even more interesting in terms of evolutivit and proposed functions DJ. OK, some functions are quite complex on the Denon.
If you want the same plates you have seen in pictures of DJ renomms cot in Sono Mag, buy Pioneer 1000. If you want to be a little more cratif and do some music, why not Denon 5000.
