Yeah a couple of mates of mine have been told Pioneer will finally be releasing a Pro/high end model of the new CDJ1000 but we have been told this before many times!

While I don't think that this is entirely inplausible, I still think it's rather inpropable. Doing something like this would require a lot of balls to pull off, and I don't see Pioneer as the type of company that would be ready to risk it. But yes, I think the rumour is definetly a possibility - though as said, not a very propable one

Though i personally don't think they will release a CDJ with a decent HiFi output, if they did I would be able to find homes for at least 6 straight away, normally we have to outsource a HiFi DAC which can add $800 to $1200 (more if you are more eccentric, less if you don’t care/don’t have the funds), I figured if it was $500 extra I could sell them.

In the end I have no doubt this will never happen, Pioneer reps have been feeding bullshit to installers since the release of the CDJ1000!
The Australian reps don’t seem to bother though, I figure this is due to the lack of installers in Australia that would actually care, most of them are mobile hire mobs or band pa hire mobs dabbling in Dance Club Systems and screwing it up big time!

^^^

how is that any different from any other company eg Denon?

i will almost guarantee all it will do is sort all your songs into folders ala itunes/any other programme, and allow you to automatically add the bpm of tracks into the file info again...nothing remotely 'new'

and lol, yet again with have the whole 'it will allow you to be more creative as a DJ' i.e make things easier so you can give more time to the jesus pose

Personally I think it is all a conspiracy to slowly replace the DJ with a computer, there is less and less skill involved these days and more buttons and effects…… but everyone knows I’m a grumpy old man!

There's no guarantee of that. The current CDJ1000s have an adjuster, that adjusts that physical sensitivity of the jog wheel platter.

It's the possibility of a pitch bend button that excites me!

agreed. It's actually amusing how all these robots are getting excited over possibilities such as pitch bend - I always thought the platter did that!

How many years has it taken for technology to recreate the speeding up/slowing down of fingers on a turntable platter?

It must be the only industry where there is no price drop corresponding to age of technology,
and that seems to be at the expense of much loved mediums (ie.vinyl), dj pay rates and piracy of music files.

Yeah, I agree.
I get worried about the loss of the skills as I see less DJ’s playing with any type of skill, even the crowd playing ability is lost on 70% of tossers I see playing these days and who cares if they can “beat mix” or “push buttons on beat” it’s not like that’s really hard anyway.. really sad!

I agree with you there. Well, aside from the first point regarding "robots" and pitch bend buttons. (An actual button for the bending of pitch is just my personal preference, as opposed to using the jog wheel. I'll have a choice now!)

I have found that the standard of DJs has dropped considerably, particularly in the past six months!

I would have to say if the choice was between a pitch bend button and a jog wheel I would go the pitch bend button as well, but I would prefer a turntable to either of them!

Pioneer are putting a lot of money toward this new run of propaganda, shame they can’t come up with some new technology to actually promote..

Heard from a worker at DMC records yesterday that pioneer are going to be bringing out 2 products, a CDJ 2000 and a CDJ 900.

The 2000 is aparently going to be the one with the screen and uber expensive and the 900 will kinda replace the 800 but will be cheaper than the 1000 and have more features... So don't buy a CDJ 800 now (Luckily I just sold mine!)

This is what I was told, if it ends up being wrong the guy has no idea what he's talking about .

Presume it's due to the impending arrival of this, but for those interested, a mate's audio company has Pioneer CDJ1000mk3 for $1499... free shipping Australia wide...
