I know there are a few gripes and grumbles with the players, but these to me are generally tinkering around the margins. Coming from DDJ-SX to the Primes, I’ve never used CDJs in their current guise (had 5000s years ago) and was put in the position of using them on Saturday at a night we run. I could’ve cried as my set practically fell to pieces. All the things that I’ve come to appreciate so quickly with the Denons just don’t exist on the CDJs (2000nxs2), finding tracks was a total bitch, half the tracks that I’d had to pre-load using rekordbox just weren’t there, cueing tracks was a total pain in the arse and winding back to the beginning using the jog wheel resulted in the previous track being loaded up again.
Long and short, couldn’t be happier that I chose the SC5000s over CDJ2000s.
Anyone else had similar experiences, or think the CDJs are better after using both?
