CDJ-800MK2: Serious Gear for the Serious DJ

If you want be taken seriously as a professional DJ you're going to need the skills, obviously, but you're also going to need the gear to match. No matter where your music-destiny takes you, the Pioneer CDJ-800MK2 is up to the task. Since their introduction in the mid-90s with the CDJ-500, models from Pioneer's CDJ line have been used so often by so many of the world's top DJs that the name "CDJ" has almost become shorthand for "CD deck." The CDJ-800MK2 was designed as an affordable alternative to the flagship CDJ-1000MK3, but these silver bullets can still easily hold their own in a professional setting. In other words, when you show up to your next gig with a pair of CDJ-800MK2's in tow, everyone will know you mean business.

Beyond pure name recognition, the CDJ-800MK2 has the features, effects and fidelity that'll get your skills noticed. Any CD player can play music, but to call this deck a "CD Player" would be an insult. The CDJ-800MK2 is more an instrument than a mere implement, and no matter whether you're used to CD decks or vinyl turntables, the intuitive layout and responsive feel will be instantly familiar.

CDJ-800MK2: Vinyl Feel Without The Vinyl Noise

Any serious turntablist knows how important feel is to their art. A big part of the appeal of spinning vinyl is the intimate connection between your hands and the music stored on those grooved and groovy discs. Unfortunately, the vinyl medium has its fair share of drawbacks. Delicate hardware like needles and tonearms, and noisy phono connectors that are susceptible to ground hum can be major headache-inducers. Then there's the records themselves, which are a pain to store and transport safely, and wear out quickly anyway, even under normal use. CDJ-800MK2's eliminate all those problems while recreating the tactile experience of scratching on LP platters. At the literal and figurative center of the CDJ's design is its 7.5" jog-wheel. With the deck in "Vinyl Mode" you can interact with this jog wheel the same way you would a spinning record: your cut, cue, scratch, nudge, fast-forward and reverse moves are all read with laser-accuracy. You can even set stops and starts to ramp up or down, and playback can be stopped on a dime by pressing down on the top of the wheel. Just about any move you can do on a vinyl turntable can be performed on a CDJ-800MK2, and in pristine, CD-quality sound. The Mark 2 CDJ-800 has been updated with metallic play and cue buttons and a metallic pitch slider to further emulate the feel of the best turntables.

CDJ-800MK2's Got Digital Looping and Beat Slicing Built Right In

High-fidelity and reliable media aren't the only benefits digital audio and the CDJ-800MK2 have to offer. Integrated real-time looping is a breeze, thanks to the onboard memory and simple controls on the CDJ-800; loop in- and out-points can be adjusted during playback, and everything can be digitally locked to tempo, an impossibility with analog vinyl decks. Four dedicated buttons will effortlessly create one-, two-, four-, or eight-beat loops, and in conjunction with the jog wheel, you can gradually shorten the length of a loop in beat-synched increments, creating awesome stutter and granular effects. With the CDJ-800MK2, all these advanced turntablist techniques will be at your fingertips; no additional sampling gear required.

CDJ-800MK2 Got Your Back

Pioneer CDJ-800MK2s boast a lot of features that'll help you impress club audiences and promoters, but they also boast features that'll keep you from ever leaving a bad impression, too. Not only can the CDJ-800MK2 play MP3s off data CD-Rs, it can even display ID3 track information like artist and track name right on the built-in LCD display, so you'll never cue-up the wrong track again. Additionally, auto-buffering anti-skip memory and an oil-dampened, vibration-absorbing shock mounting help ensure that playback never stops unless you want it to. You'll only perform better knowing these safety features negate the possibility of potentially embarrassing situations that might keep you from booking the gig next time.

Every DJ strives to maintain a perfect balance between artistry and professionalism. The Pioneer CDJ-800MK2 is the one CD Deck that most perfectly embodies that philosophy, and is the one piece of gear that, no matter how big you get, will always keep pace. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Pioneer products.

Product Description


The MP3 audio format has taken the world by storm and now the CDJ-800MK2 can play all your MP3s; CBR or VBR at any bitrate from CD-R or CD-RW.

Improved Jog Dial

The CDJ-800MK2's 7-inch jogdial has been improved to a slightly stiffer feel as well as a new metallic 'non-slip' finish for better scratch performance. The Jog Dial Display is now brighter and has been brought closer to the surface of the Jog for better viewing angles. The center display also features 45-degree markers for added visual cueing assistance.

Updated Display

The main display can now show CD-Text and ID3 data for rapid track identification.

Expanded Internal Memory

More memory points can now be recorded to the player's internal memory for rapid recall of your commonly used cue points.

Auto Beat Loop

Uses 4 timing buttons to instantly create perfect 1, 2, 4, or 8 beat loops. When a loop has been produced manually with the loop in and loop out buttons, this feature allows instant 1/1, 1/2, 1/4/, 1/8 beat cuts of the initial loop. Holding the Loop-In button allows you to further cut the beat -- down to 1/32nd!

Quick Return

Enables a track to return instantly again and again to a cue point just by pressing the surface of the Jog Wheel.

"Wide" Pitch Control

DJ's can use the +/- 100% pitch control range to create new sound effects from opposite ends of the sound spectrum and also to BPM match completely different tracks.

New Metallic Finish

New metallic buttons and pitch slider give the CDJ-800MK2 a fresh new look.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (136 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Nice product"
Sound: Nice unit, Overall I love the vinyl mode. I do not do a lot of scratching but mixing in that made is nice. I have two of these, a DJM-800 mixer, two american audio cdi-500's, and two other older drives. I have to say the cdj's are nice. The only thing I would have liked was three to four que buttons like my old drives had. Feature: I like the fact that the set up will allow you to extend songs, but the quick return and vinvyl modes are nice. I like the fact you can adjust your tracks similar to a record while mixing. The display, info, and also mp3 capatibility are also nice. Ease of Use: Smooth operation, and unit set up make for very easy operation. Quality: This unit is built well. I have them and the mixer in a coffin. I travel with them a lot and they always are up for the task. They have perfored with out fail for the few years I have owned them. I usually have the other two drives with me but have never needed them. Oh, GO DIGITAL less cables to play with. Value: price rance comperable Manufacturer Support: never needed Overall: I will have them for as long as they perform..... a long time.
Style of Music: Trance, techno, d&b, breaks, and house

Pioneer CDJ800MK2 Player Customer Review
Sound: The sound Is Great, no complaints about the D/A quality. The scratch mode is convincing enough, It's not TOTALLY true to the scratch sound of vinil is you turn the platter verrrrry slowly, but what is? Feature: I give it a 6, because while It as the bare bones to allow you to DJ, there are many players out there with many more features. I actually like that in some ways, as it un-clutters my setup a little more. FX from Mixer, sound from CD player! still, I could use a couple little things more. It's quite simple compared to many other players costing much less. Ease of Use: the plus side to the CDJ800 having few features, is that the ones it does have work very good. the controls just feel right. I've DJ'd on 4-5 other types of Cd players besides Pioneer decks, and when I'm using Pioneer players It just feels right. I know where everything is and I feel confident. I need the hard play/cue buttons and Hate anything using rubber play buttons. I knew how much I liked these once I had to Use Vestax and Denon players at a couple places- They feel fiddly and weird and I spent more brain power making sure the player was doing what I wanted it to do and less time Djing. Quality: I Owned the old 800 MKI before, and sold it. I had one of those fail on me and cost 400$ to repair. I used it for a while though, so I can't be mad, but still I wished the money I paid for quality could have lasted longer. That being said I'm sure the breakdown rate for other brands Is an issue as well. The MKII's of course don't have problems (yet) and though there a few years old they don't skip (VESTAX?? ruined my night) and they play what you tell them to, when you tell them too. Hopefully Pioneer's quality reputation will keep these alive for a while. Value: These are a DJ keeper for a few reasons. the Resale value for pioneer gear is High! you know anyone with Pioneer CDJ's is serious about their thing. It' also great because any DJ knows how to use one without a learning curve, and Pioneer CDJs are in every club. Much like the SL1200. It's just....always there. Manufacturer Support: Well...they fixed my 800 but it wasn't cheap. I'd say average, decent service. Overall: overall I'd say, If you plan on using them out at Parties and events at least a couple times a month, go for it. If you only Hit up the Odd party every now and then, I say It's not worth it. Get something Cheaper for your practice and local party and Use something Pioneer whenever its at the gig (because there will be Pioneer there!) Buy it If you have a money and places to DJ in the foreseeable future.
