Hi guys, I've been doing some research but in the end I'm just looking for some honest opinions.
I currently own the S4 and last month bagged my first gig in a local bar. I turned up nice and early to set up my stuff and it all went well. But the bar had a set of pioneer CDJ-2000s and watching all the other DJs turn up with either their CDs or USB sticks got me thinking.
As much as I enjoy using the S4 I think i'm falling out of love with it and having now had the experience of setting up/tidying away in a bar I'm now looking at buying a pair of CDJs to use at home so I can then use the CDJs the bar have having experience of at least using something similar.
Firstly, from what I've read on here I think buying a pair of second hand CDJ 800s is going to be my best option. I currently don't have the money for the 900s (which I would get over the 2000s) and again, from what I've read on here, the 1000s don't seem as robust as the 800s.
Does this sound like a good idea?
Whichever CDJs I end up getting, I want to continue using my laptop & traktor as having all my songs to hand is certainly more appealing that having to put them all on to CDs but is this the best option?
Also, I was wondering, with my S4 I got the free upgrade to Scratch Pro 2, now I realise I would have to buy something like the Audio6 or 8 to then use traktor with the CDJs but does this mean I could get it second hand and use the TSP2 serial number that I already have?
I hope this all makes sense and apologies for the long post but there isn't a short version unfortunately.
