    Default DJM 800 vs DJM 850

    DJM 800 vs DJM 850: Is there really a difference, aside from the Traktor certification? Is it worth that $500 plus?!

    It can also output midi as well, don't think the 800 can. If the fact that you're getting a brand new item with a warranty and those features are worth the extra price to you then go for the 850.

    I do really like the 92. I really do. But I play so much on the DJM 900 that I'd like to just master the damn thing already. Can't afford the 900 but I'd like to get something close in comparison. Don't use Traktor enough to get a mixer built for it. Thus, this thread.

    Well...you have 4 options. 750,800,850,900. If you don't need dedicated filter knobs and want a new item then go with the 750. If you don't mind used go with the 800. If you want the next best thing to the 900nxs get the 850.

    DJM 850 has a very low latency 4 stereo in+out sound card rather than just Traktor certification. It also has an Isolator EQ option, different Color FX, and apparently overall sound quality is improved vs the 800.

    Both have pretty similar MIDI functions, but you of course need a MIDI interface to use it on the 800 whereas the 850 sends MIDI through the USB port.

    850 is beautiful I spin on my buddies nearly everyday. Close enough to the 900 minus the touchstrip and extra effects

    Guess it's worth the extra money then. I'll look for an 850.

    Sound quality of the 850/900 is far far superior. I had an 800... My 900 sounds 10 x better.

    I'd take an 850 over an 800 any day

    800 isn't even a close comparison to the 850
