    Default So came across this while looking for a headunit for my gf car...

    I am pissed. Pioneer can charge 2000$ for a CDJ and their head units have "DJ fx", scroll and wave forms and its 260 is the 350 for the most expensive. Hmm didnt know a jog wheel was 1650$

    Surprisingly this isnt something odd to me, I've often told my freinds about the brand new CDJs and they ask what this 2000$ CD Player can do. I generally find my self exhausting a list of trivial things.

    They have a (near) monopoly over the CDJ market, hence they can charge whatever they like.

    There are plenty of other big players in the car stereo market, so the price is determined for them.

    It comes down to status and image, both in and out of the community. I know i've personally thought to myself when I see someone using CDJ 2000's that they must be doing well to be able to justify buying those.

    Yeah it's a shame they are so expensive. Even the CDJ-2000's feel cheap and lack ingenuity. You definitely pay for the name.

    Pioneer is one of the top players in the Head unit game as well though. However most of their high end units have more features than a CDJ does and even have high-res flip out displays... for half the price!

    But also keep in mind they also sell WAY more head units than they do CDJ's. So they have to inflate the CDJ price to keep up the margins.
