, Pioneer has made a

CD Turntable

so versatile and reliable that it can even impress the most die hard vinyl fans.  Some may be skeptical but we assure you that the

Pioneer CDJ-1000 CD Turntable

is all its cracked up to be.  Living up to the name "CD turntable", the Pioneer CDJ-1000 allows complete hands-on control of the track, from beat juggling to intense scratching and slow wind downs (turntable brake).  In addition to nearly perfecting all the aspects of a turntable, the Pioneer CDJ-1000 has features and options that can take DJing to a level unattainable on standard decks. First of all, the Pioneer CDJ-1000 will never skip, ever.  Second, purely digital functions such as programmable cues, key control, sampling, and seamless loop allow unprecedented control over mixes.  When it comes down to it, Pioneer's CDJ-1000 combines the hands on control formerly only found on turntables with the digital effects exclusive to CD decks.
