- How long have you use it?
For 1 year with a friend, I got mine not long ago

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
The most fun is the indicator of cue point in the middle, he can see his point with a precision demonic.
The vinyl mode also excellent, I started on vinyl and it's been a pleasure to launch his record as a turntable, while keeping the crown to pitch bender, we believe it almost ... At the same return the quick return is also excellent!
The precision of 0.05 is also apreciation, ca helps to extend the mix! on the other hand I prefer one mode to mode 10% 8% because of the sudden the pitch is really very very sensitive!
The buckles are nice but not really useful, they are perfect rarements! Better to edit yourself and rebalance loop in reloop ... and auto loop buttons become cutters ... nice but I prefer the hots carrment cue! But hey you can not have everything!

On the negative side is the crown that is too slight (compared to the CDJ 1000), who have been accustomed to mix with the 1000 will have strange sensations in pitch bend
Always on the crown, the intensity of the pitch bend does not depend only on the amplitude we use to move, it also depends on the speed at which it is done ... This is because enmerdant to catch a micro lag must be given pTis tweaks in next / back ... it's the only thing that really bothers me in this deck, but hey you get used to it.
- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
CDJ800 (lol. ..), 1000, numark axis 8 / 9, no test denon ...

- How do you report qualitprix?
Abusive, Pioneer has a policy unreasonable prices, they remain static is simple. The output of the 800MK2 1000MK3 and did not reduce the price of older models (which itself had almost no moves ... but hey, another cot their stuff is of excellent quality is the standard club so ...

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
Being given that I already mixais on this model before buying it, the question does not arise!

I buy this board in late August 2005.

I like the central turntable, it's more convenient than the pitch bend I had on my old turntables. The BPM counter with a little coarsely adjust the tempo, but then be adjusted by ear, especially since often the meter is unable to decide (it is common to see the display 130, then 134, then 132, then 131, then 134 again ... even if it happens in the end to provide a fairly stable number ...). For that, the tempo is very (too?) Specific: 0.05% to 0.05!

Handy, too, the loop automatically, which should however only be used for melodies "basic" ...
I also like the overall look, stylish with the CDs and swallowing the central ring ...

But I like less the color (a little bronze, it's old-fashioned), and the lack of original functions, effects (absents. ..)... The thin plastic that makes up is also quite low in relation to the price ... it's weird ..
Too bad also that the window does not display the name of the securities, it can be used. In addition, the plate is not the MP3 .. Custom it does not really bother me because I think I would lose quickly in my CDs ...
Another thing: I also liked that there is a button to stop or not the CD at the end of the range = sometimes if I forget to lower the fader of the plate, the title linked together after ...!!


Before I had JB Systems CD100 ... without comment.

Value for money: 600 euros for a plate that still hurts in the ass, then saw it takes two, I will not say .. but not against competition, it can be from 10 to 20% too much but hey it is sold well it seems ..

After a week of use, I found some problems reading CD-R: a bluntly planted, others have problems when we break ... I'm not sure these plates are so reliable as they say ...
In fact, the problem occurs with all new CD-R PHILIPS ... may be that this brand is not blameless in regard to its products ...
>>> After a few months of use, I'm rather reassured, the decks are still very reliable and manageable. A concern, however, my turntables "plant" sometimes it's blocked and must be removed and then reinsert the CD to make sure it works. And still the problems with some CD-R ...
For now, I would do anyway this choice, but the Denon DNS 3000 (and even DNS 1000) are also really interesting ...
My rating: 08/10 because in all it's still good deck, but we expect something closer to perfection at this price ... :

-0.5 For the plastic look
-0.5 For the lack of features and (CD text, reassuring live ..) effects
-1 For the failures when playing certain CD-R ...

Pioneer CDJ-800
I use them in intensive for over 2 years and no problems at the operation or playing a track!
Excellent product no gadjet functions, loops Automatic (1 / 4, 1 / 2, 1 / 1, 2 / 1) extraoridnaire although often a small registration is needed but nothing major (can loop manual)! Jog Wheel excellent FLYING and an ultra easy ultra-precise pitch adjustment + or - 0.05%! Master Tempo Pioneer's top notch (no distosion in sound)! No comparison with other player market (although many other manufacturers based on these drives!) Except the CDJ 1000 mk2 which are even more amazing (especially at the jog weel which is much more suited to scratch because it is less flexible than the 800 but the price difference is very substantial (40% more expensive now!). So to sum great product with a very good price / quality ratio, a choice that I would do without hesitation !
