    N00b CDJ question...

    What are considered "industry standard" CDJ's?

    And what is also considered an "industry standard" mixer?

    industry standard: probably anything by pioneer. 90% of all clubs have pioneer cdjs, all the biggers ones cdj-1000s or at least 800s, but i've also seen 100s and 200s. other cdjs i've only seen twice: one time denons, another time numark.

    same goes probably for the mixer, most clubs will have a djm 800 or at least 600. there's more diversity with the mixers than with the cdjs though.

    Yeah I think the Pioneer CDJ1000's are industry standard, along with their DJM600 or 800 mixer. Some places prefer the Xone 62 or 92 but I think they're vastly inferior :smile1:

    Well for home practice I would advice getting a pair of 800's. You fill feel how it is in the club, because 1000s are almost similar in terms of ergonomics and button / knob placement.

    Usually in good clubs you will probably find CDJ 1000s MK II / MK III

    Agreed, I've got the 800's at home, and they're perfectly fine really. Considering the vast difference in price, I don't really think the 1000's are good value for money when compared to the 800's, but they do admittedly have extra features which are nice

    Well, you have to realize that DJs are still using the "double drawer" style Denon cd players too. But, I do see a lot of the DND4500s around here, as well as the ones that cannot play the MP3 format. As far as the stand alone ones, the ones I see the most are the Denon DNS3500s.

    A lot of people do not like the Pioneer CDJ1000s, a lot of people have been complaining about the PLAY/CUE buttons messing up. AND, that they are very bulky, compared to the Denons. I have carried those Pioneers around a bit and those things are MASSIVE.

    Ummmmm, I am a Denon fan through and through so I am a bit biased
