I have owned one cdj-800 for about a year, and i was so impressed i bought another! both work flawlessly and have amazing built quality even though the exterior is plastic.

Many rivials (vestax cdx range, which i found to be tacky, cheap feeling and very badly designed, it was as if the increase of gadgets was added to make the customer not feel as conned for buying a second rate piece of kit for a not so second rate price tag! ) some i have used have nothing compared to pioneers cdj range.

I love vinyl, and was very anti cd deck. If vinyl died, Pioneer is to blame! but it opens so many new exciting ways to DJ in fact i have switched, my monthly vinyl spend has decreased alot as CDs are much lighter and cheaper (my back loves cd).

The cd load time is really fast maybe 3 seconds and your ready, the jog wheel in vinyl mode has the analog feel and it does feel like vinyl. very handy tools such a auto loops, good quality display that shows you everything you need to know. the quick return feature is really handy for lazy scratch DJs as you dont need to pull the record back! just set a cue point and will always return.

it remembers your cues in it own memory which is also handy.
Yes it is £515 but its well worth it, for quality, reliability and for your own reputation.

If i had the choice again yes i would buy them again, or save the extra £200 and go for its brother the CDJ 1000, i cant really knock them
