    I recently just made the switch from a DDJ-SX to a CDJ-2000 NXS setup and it was surprisingly intuitive once. First, download Rekordbox, analyze your songs, and create the same playlists. I used Serato which just read my iTunes playlists so this was easy. Once you put your analyzed tracks on the flash drive it's pretty much the same as the SX.

    Just plug your flashdrive into one CDJ, click USB and on the other CDJs click LINK (this assumes the CDJ's are linked through the Pro DJ Link which they should be, otherwise you'll need a USB stick for each one). The rest is pretty much the same, you use the encoder knob to browse and select, there's just a Back button instead of clicking the encoder.
