Dogg how much did you pay for your CDJ1000mk2 a piece ?? Did you mayb tested the Denon S5000 perhaps??
I'm gonna try to test both 3 players in a store. Cause i just can't believe the Technics sounds so fucking bad. I saw another movie where the Technics sounded really good. I'll upload it and post the link asap.
Anyone got any big reviews about those 3 ??
I didn't try the Denon ones... the only ones I've tried is the Numark CDX, The Technics SL-DZ1200, the Pioneer CDJ800, The CMX3000 and the CDJ1000mk2...
As you might I'm new to CD gears and I've been lucky enough to be able to try the Technics and the CDJ1000mk2 at home for several days...
Despite the fact that I did prefer the Technics at the begining due to its look, I must confess that within 30 min. the Pioneer did convince me (hands down!)
Everything did sound perfect and as it should sound (just like the perfection feeling
)... for the Technics that's another story (I simply didn't feel at ease with them, next to the Pioneer the SLDZ appeared as being less rugged, less "reliable") (just like the difference you could get between a sl1200mk2 and a jbsystem turntable... ok here I might be overstating
I did pay ?1030 without VAT for each deck + a ?125 rebate as I did pay within 8 days following my order...
Please do not get me wrong, I'm pretty sure that you can do amazing things with the Technics, but none of those things can't be done with the Pioneer and should I state once again that Pioneer is the industry standard in that field
and last but not least when you're about to pay ?2500 for CD gears the only thing you're looking at is the BEST... In my humble opinion, that's what I did choose.
Concerning the Numark, they did impress me the first time I've used them, but it appears as not being as reliable as Pioneer or even Technics... moreover it's ergonomically far from being perfect.
To conclude, let me state this, since the first day I've started DJing (1990) I've always seen Technics as turntables king, I've been really disappointed to see they were no more above the crowd in the CD field, they were even below a brand like Numark... (really!)... hey I guess that's something we call EVOLUTION
One last advice, please try all the decks that you would like to buy, only trust your judgement... this is the best way not to regret your next buy... Enjoy (Even if you choose Denon or Technics we can still be friends... you know just like an Alqueeda terrorist and an American
