These come at a significantly lower price than the CDJ-1000, but offer almost all of the same features. Other than the looks, there are some minor differences between the two, with the 800 lacking some of the more premium features found on the 1000.
Pioneer CDJ-800 CD Turntable
gives you many of the key features found on the CDJ-1000, but with a significantly lower price tag (around $200). The
has the same turntable-like manipulation platter and programmable cue points. However, the key differences between the two are as follows.
- Cannot store cue information into a permanent memory
- No Hot Cue
- No lock CD function
- The 800 has +/-10% and +/-1000% pitch control whereas the 1000 has -/+6, 10, 16, 24%
- The 800 does not have the metal buttons found on the 1000
- The reverse function is controlled by a button rather than a switch
- No WAV data memory
- Touch/Release and Break/Start controls do not have separate controls
- Reverse function is controlled by a button rather than a switch
Overall, the CDJ-800 only lacks the most delux of features found on the CDJ-1000.
