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.
