    Default Is it me or...

    I was just browsing DJForums and was checking out people's setups. Is it just me or do you guys see cdj-2000's and a djm-2000 as a huge waste of money?

    I used to own CDJ-1000's and a rane 2016 because there wasn't much that was really better. Now I have an S4 and can't justify spending 5000$ on gear that my S4 does for 899$.

    Share your thoughts, maybe I'm just getting old and frugal lolz.

    thats my main hangup with getting a set of cdjs/a mixer (especially new)... midi can do everything that those can do and then some -- aka the s4 is perfect.

    i still think it would be awesome to have a set anyways. but i agree with you ATM it is a huge waste of money compared to other options out there that can do the same thing.

    Ive always been into the new cool gear I just think that the S4 is way cooler than the 2000's at a fraction of the price. I mean 2 - cdj2000's + 1 - DJM2000 or djm900 = the price of a good used vehicle. Pretty nuts!

    dood. i absolutely love mine. if a "traditional setup" was cheaper, i totally woulda gone for that over going fully digital, but as you said. it doesnt make sense financially.

    deffinatly when i get some more cash/find a sweet deal ill pick up some second hand. but as for buying brand new? not in the cards until i hit the lotto :P

    How is a full Pioneer setup not "fully digital"?

    it is fully digital, you are right, a cdj is nothing else than a computer and i guess the 2000 does have more power than a cellphone from 2005.....

    …but he obviously meant with "digital" a solution thats based on a personal computer with a djing software.

    but you knew that already

    CDJ2000s are awesome, but yeh way too much money.

    If I were kitting out a booth for a club (which I often do in my imagination, because I am that sad) I'd put in a DJM900 and 2 CDJ2000s, because these days it's what you expect to find and Digital DJs tend to have their own gear. I would of course leave a load of space for it!
