    Default Upgrading from CDJ 1000s


    This is my first post

    I've had a pair of CJ 1000s for 8 years, and I'm sick and tired of burning CDs! So I'd like to upgrade to Pioneers that take USB, and preferably compatible with rekordbox. I'm quite out of the loop on the different models, so I'd welcome any advice on which to go for!

    My budget is 1000 (absolute max) for a second hand pair. I'm very happy with my Allen & Heath mixer, and I also play vinyl, so an all in one set up like the XDJ-RX isn't really suitable for me.

    I've been looking at the 700. Does anyone have experience of using them? The jog-wheel is smaller, but does this make a big difference? I've also looked at the 850, which looks more like a traditional CDJ, but I think they are lot older.

    Any advice on what to go for would be really helpful!

    Thank you,

    If you are buying new, go with the 700's. I owned em and kept em in my bag to use as third and fourth decks for quite a while They are amazing for the price.

    Otherwise, you cannot go wrong with a second hand set of XDJ1000's (either the MK1 or MK2).
