The ultimate CDJ! Spin, mix, and scratch tracks from CDs, USB drives, SD cards, and even smartphones and computers, via the CDJ-2000nexus' WiFi connectivity.

Pioneer's flagship CDJ player, the CDJ-2000nexus, offers exciting features and technologies including Wi-Fi connectivity, a first in the industry, compatibility with Pioneer's rekordbox App for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, Android tablets and smartphones and functions such as 'Beat Sync,' 'Wave Zoom' and 'Slip.' Enhanced features inherited by the CDJ-2000nexus include a selection screen interface for a more intuitive music search experience, increased visibility of the needle search pad, and improved master tempo sound quality.

Industry's First DJ Player with Wireless Source Capability

The CDJ-2000nexus can utilize different music sources, from a hard drive to USB thumb drive and/or SD memory card, and now for the first time, an iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, Android devices and a computer via Wi-Fi. Using Pioneer's rekordbox App to create playlists, cue/loop points, beat location settings, waveform analysis and more, users can temporarily transfer the content wirelessly through Wi-Fi to the CDJ-2000nexus. Users can also perform the same wireless function with a Mac/PC utilizing the rekordbox music management software.

rekordbox Software Functions

With the included rekordbox music management software installed on a computer, users can organize and catalog their entire music libraries. Added features available when rekordbox is used with the CDJ-2000nexus include music file analysis functions such as Wave Form Zoom (wave form expansion) and Key, as well as additional read more settings such as Active Loop and Hot Cue Auto Load.

When music files are imported to rekordbox, the software analyzes each file and prepares it for use specifically for the CDJ player. Key elements of Pioneer's rekordbox software:

- Data Analysis - Wave Zoom, Key, Wave, Beat Grid, BPM, ID3 Tag and more
- Track Settings - Active Loop, Hot Cue Auto Load, Cue, Loop
- Creation and editing of Playlists
- Saving of playback log information

Full-Color LCD Display

The CDJ-2000nexus features a large full-color WQVGA 6.1-inch (480 x 234) LCD panel for displaying song titles and album art as well as detailed track information. The Wave data of each song is also illustrated on screen and the 'Wave Zoom' function provides five different levels of magnification of the wave data which are color-coded according to bandwidth.

Pro DJ Link

Pioneer's Pro DJ Link feature enables up to four CDJ-2000nexus players to connect via the Link Port and share a single music source. Additional functions added to the CDJ-2000nexus that can be accessed when other players are connected using the Pro DJ Link are:
- Beat Sync - Tempo and beat location of music currently playing on one of the device can be matched with the push of a button.
- Traffic Light - Shows the keys of music being played by any players connected via Pro DJ Link, making key-compatible music easier to find by a different color indicator.
- Beat Count and Phase Meter - The Beat Count, which is the number of beats until a set point (memory cue), and the Phase Meter, which shows the beat/bar of the music, can also be displayed simultaneously by other players.

Performance Functions

Pioneer added Slip Mode and Quantize functions to the CDJ-2000nexus for added performance and reliability.
- Slip Mode - When activated, Slip Mode silently continues song playback during a loop, reverse or scratch and continues audible playback at the exact time when the loop, reverse or scratch is ended, resulting in smoother transitions.
- Quantize - Utilizing a Quantizing feature, cue points and loops can be set perfectly on-beat. The Quantize feature ensures cue points are set accurately and automatically, correcting and synching beats during manual looping or real-time cueing to reduce off-beat mistakes.
- My Settings - The function settings of a player can be saved to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, USB storage device, SD memory card, or other device.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Such an awesome product!!!! I had two Cdj2000's and when this came out I had to try one out. I am now selling my two Cdj2000's to get two more Nexus'. The auto hot cue load, quantized hot cue, slip mode and beat grid adjustability makes your set sound cleaner and flow super well! I love the Master Tempo but don't use the sync so no review on that. It does take a little bit to get used to, especially coming off two Cdj2000's, but I couldn't be happier with my purchase! Also, zZounds got it to me super fast which is why I am ordering two more!!!

Super high quality sound! The gold plated connectors make the uncompressed songs I buy sound flawless!

The auto hot cue load and quantized hot cue really help throughout a mix. Also, the quantize button on the face of the deck allows the user to turn the quantize on and off quickly instead of having to go through multiple steps like on the Cdj2000.

Ease of Use
A slight learning curve coming off the Cdj2000, but very similar and anyone who has used a Cdj can hop on and start spinning!

Very, very high quality. Scratch resistant face, bright LCD screen and solid hot cues. Very accurate tempo, key and beat grid adjustability!

Yes, it is very expensive, but you get what you pay for. I have owned products by Stanton also, and I did like them, but no match in quality read more to Pioneer's line! Get yourself some cases and deck savers, it's well worth it!

Manufacturer Support
Have not dealt with Pioneer yet but I know people who have, and they said the experience was great!

The Wow Factor
Super sleek looking product! The green and orange circles are known everywhere and I love the style Pioneer has come up with! Just don't come out with a new Cdj too soon!

Musical Background:
Been a Dj since I was 16 (almost 7 years now), I play at local clubs/bars, heading to LA to Dj at major clubs down there!

Musical Style:
EDM! Progressive House, Electro House, Dance, Minimal, Trap and Dubstep.
