    you don't need software with that setup, just use CDs/USB sticks.

    as for speakers some decent Hi-Fi would do

    If I were you this is what i'd do:
    1) Download Rekordbox
    2) Import your tracks onto CDs (I don't think yours have USB readers right?)
    3) Plug in a set of headphones
    4) Play**



    **Since you said you haven't got a clue with the setup, easy solution is to YouTube how to DJ.

    You can't use Rekordbox for CDs.
    CDJ 350s do read USBs.

    Completely disregard Coldfuzion's post. Download Rekordbox (it's free) and use it to put your tracks on usb sticks. After that you'll need a pair of headphones and some hi fi speakers. We can't give you any recommendations if we don't know your budget.

    For software I recommend Rekordbox. But if you like to use your setup together with a computer then you should get Mixvibes Cross (not CrossDJ) it has full HID integration with CDJ350. It's to only software I know of that has HID and not just midi for the cdj350.
    What does that mean? well you can use your CDJ's to control the software and you get track info displayed also on the CDJ screen. You can also use the CDJ's as sound card. Mixvibes Cross is €79.99 or $99.99 and you can import Rekordbox liberary and get all hotcues, loopsnd memory points and beatgrids imported.

    As for speakers and amps. If you are going to be using them at home get some decent cheep studio active monitors
    DJ setup 1 - Pioneer XDJ-Aero, Pioneer DDJ-SP1, Mixvibes Cross, Macbook Air 13", Pioneer HDJ 2000. DJ setup 2 - NI Kontrol F1, Z1, X1mkII, Traktor Pro2, Macbook Air 13", Pioneer HDJ 2000 w. Production - iMac 21.5", Motu 828x, Icon Qcon Pro + EX, Nektar Panorama P4, Propellerhead Reason, Mashine Mikro(drum programer in Reason)
