This first Twin Cd player from Pioneer ProDJ was nick-named : the submarine, becasue of the looks of it's Jog Wheels. Name given by Lead on a exhabition, then adopted by the dealernetwork. Offering all popular features and some new function in 1 package. This was Pioneers best twin CD ever.
After the succes of the CDJ-1000 it is now the turn to the CDJ-800 to show his face. Featuring the same Jog wheel principle, accuracy and speed. A lot of features at a lower price point.

With 2 channels a small mixer, but it has 5 Effects, In-Loop Sampler and 4 Auto Beat sync Loops.
Uses the same 32-bits DSP as it's big brother: DJM-1000.
Basicly this was one of the very first DJ CD players around. For much people this machine was the first encounter with CDing. In the USA the early models of Pioneer used a different type indication, this was called CDJ-50-2.
