I received my CDX today and i must say i am very dissapointed so far i have hadrly been able 2 hold a min together properley for like 1 minute, seriuosly the pitch is awful.
Its just so sensitive and like every few seconds u will have 2 touch the platter 2 either slow it down or speed it up.
I am used 2 mixing for quite long periods of the record and then break on the break however i am finding this nigh on impossible with the CDX (doing my heada in)
Seriously thinking of returning this deck even though there might be a surcharge, 1 question does the Pioneer hold a mix together or does it also try 2 jump out of beat every freakin minute. I can mix properly i have mixed for about 12 years on technics and i know u might think its cause i just got it but i dont think so when i go straight back 2 my 1210's no problem, however try 2 put a mix in from the CDX it just goes wrong HELP pioneer advice needed as i say can the pioneer stay in beat for long periods with a little adjusting of course or are all cd Players like this.
I am sure that you have checked this, but there are different pitch percentage settings. Your pitch control can by set to 6%, 12%, 25% and 100%. I have used this deck, and the pitch control is very loose, which could lead me to believe that when set at 100%, or even 25% there could be an issue with remaining stable.
Also, have you tried setting the pitch lock on your turntable, as well as CDX so that they are both locked to 0%, and then seeing if they are off. This could easily show a problem that might be easier to troubleshoot.
Unfortunately, the type of mixing I do limits me to 30 second mixes, however I will try this before I decide to buy one. Thanks for the info on the problem you are having.
I wrote my own personal review about this deck you can check out if you like at //www.djresource.eu/index.php?page=Forum&topic=383&p=2
Maybe some of the problems I found about the deck you can help me with. Thanks..
