Pioneer DJ's CDJ-2000NXS has been the industry standard player since it debuted in 2012. Now, four years later, they've released its successor, the CDJ-2000NXS2, along with the DJM-900NXS2 mixer. For the first of two reviews, Mojaxx looks at the CDJ's new features and determines if they're worth the hefty price tag.
IMPROVED SOUND DESIGN
For the best possible club sound, we've added a 96 kHz/24-bit sound card and improved the digital signal processing (DSP) and Digital Out. Analogue noise is reduced to a minimum by a high-performance 32-bit D/A converter and separate analogue power supply. Crisp high-resolution audio is supported for FLAC, Apple Lossless Audio (ALAC), as well as MP3, WAV, AAC, and AIFF.
LARGE TOUCH SCREEN
The 7-inch, full-colour touch screen gives you instinctive control of your favourite features. It displays all the info you need, including Wave Zoom, Needle Countdown, Phase Meter, and more. Keyword Search and Track Filter mode help you browse and select your tracks faster for an effortless performance.
8 HOT CUES
Set cue points in rekordbox and customise their colours. 2 banks of 4 colour-illuminated Hot Cues put instant playback of pre-set cue points at your fingertips.
Quantize snaps cues and loops to the rekordbox beat grid for a reliable performance every time.
ADD A DDJ-SP1
Add the DDJ-SP1 to your set-up and access even more performance features. Simply plug in a USB cable and control up to 4 CDJ-2000NXS2s using Pro DJ Link.
