"Pioneer CDJ 200 Table top CD player"

The CDJ-200 from Pioneer lets you perform some of the hottest tricks to your tracks, before it even hits the mixer! Plays MP3s up to 320 Kbps. Equipped with 3 remix assist functions (Jet, Zip and Wah) and a Digital Jog Break dial, a new remix world can be experienced. By operating the jog dial in time with the music, you can create original sound effects. A large 3.9 inch diameter jog dial enables quick and easy corrections to uneven beats with only a touch.

Digital Jog Break Dial Functions
This function changes the music tempo depending on the direction and speed the jog dial is rotated.
Moves the pause position in frame units (1/75 sec) when the jog dial is rotated in the pause mode.
By turning the jog dial while holding down the manual search button or the track search button, disc searches can be performed faster than normal search or track search functions.

Tempo Control
3.9 inch long, high-precision slider allows for easy tempo adjustment. With a digital display calibrated in 0.02% units (within a +/- 6% range), tempo adjustments can be made more easily and accurately.
The maximum range can be set to three variable ranges; +/- 6%, +/- 10%, +/- 16%, to provide easier operation environment.
Maintains the same pitch of sound while changing the music tempo.
After storing a cue point in memory, press the CUE button while playing back a track to return and start from the stored cue point.
Skips the non-recorded part at the top of a track and automatically enters stand-by mode at the track's starting point, allowing playback to begin instantly when the PLAY/PAUSE button is pressed.
Playback can be started at one touch from a stored cue point, convenient for confirming start points and as sampler.
Real Time Seamless Loop
This function simplifies the setting and cancelling of loops. The loop can be set at the very instant the track is being played. By setting a loop just before the end of the track, the track can be made so that it doesn't stop. In addition, an ADJUST mode has been added to enable one-touch adjustments to the loop-out point, thereby facilitating the loop operation.

Allows returning to the set loop position at any time. Press the RELOOP/EXIT button after cancelling loop play to return to the loop start position. By using the loop ON and OFF combined with the rhythm of the track, new sound effects or live remixes can be created.

Playing Address
The bar graph provides a visual reference of the track playback progress that enables the user to visualize the current playback position, in the same way as is done with an analog record by checking the position of the needle. The current position can be confirmed by the length of the graph, and in addition, the graph flashes to signal the ending of the track.

Slot In
The disc can be inserted without the opening of trays and doors, making possible quick disc changes.

Fader Start
By connecting this unit to DJ mixer DJM-500, DJM-600, DJM-300, DJM-3000, DJM-909, or DJM-707, QUICK START and BACK CUE functions can be performed by using the mixer's fader function.

Relay Play
Two CDJ-200 units can be connected in tandem to perform automatic relay play. When track playback stops on one of the players, the standby mode of the other player is released and playback begins automatically.

Oil Damper Float
OIL DAMPER FLOAT construction helps resist shakes and impacts. This unit features an OIL DAMPER FLOAT design, making it harder for distortions and sound breakup to occur due to impacts from operation and vibrations from the floor.

Multi Read
Supports playback of CD-R and CD-RW discs. (Some discs may not read properly, however, due to special characteristics of certain discs and recorders, or dirty/damaged discs.)

CD Text
Displays CD TEXT on CD TEXT-supported discs.

    Welcome to ciao - I hope you enjoy your time here. Loads of great info in this review and this sounds like a fun product to own - totally impractical for me though. Belinda
