To be fair, not all mixers in this chart can be compared to eachother but to make a complete overview I've added these models. DJM-400 is actually a bit to small (2 channels) and the DJM-1000 is a bit to big (6 channels), but I felt they needed to be mentioned.

Pioneer DJM-series

The DJM series products are mixers that blend multiple audio channels together, with the addition of applying effects and/or filters.

As these mixers are not all developed for club use, the feature set they have onboard is a bit different for each model. In general these are the applications the mixers are designed for :

DJM-400 : Typical bedroom mixer.
DJM-600 : Club legend, but with the arrival of the new models this is a good choice for home use.
DJM-700 : Semi-pro mixer. Just a bit of to have the qualities for club life but the ultimate home-use mixer.
DJM-800 : Pro Mixer for all heavy duty jobs like rental and club environments
DJM-1000 : Pro Mixer for all heavy duty jobs like rental and club environments

Differences in features

The following chart gives you a side by side comparison of all the models and have a checkbox or description if a product supports the mentioned feature. I do have the assumption that if you read this topic, you roughly know the Pioneer DJ products so you should understand the terminology.

Assign 1 channel to both side of Cros Fader  - kan er zo gauw niet opkomen hoor, maar wat is hier het nut van?

  Flag Lead wrote on 27-09-2007 @ 14:52
Als je  kant aan beide kanten van de Cross Fader kunt toewijzen kun je op CrossFader B effect zetten terwij Cross Fader A zonder effect klinkt. Zet beide kanaal schuiven omhoog en met de cross fader kun je zo soepel afwisselen tussen droog (zonder effect) en nat (met effect). Jammer genoeg kan dit alleen bij de DJM-600.

Dus als ik het goed bekijk heeft de DJM 700 iets meer efecten dan de 800

nice, maar 1 ding snap ik niet

de DJM600 is de enigste die je kan aansluiten op 2 kanten van de X-fader maar waarom zou je dat in godsnaam willen
ik zie het nut ervan niet. Zet de x-fader dan gewoon THRU.  En De meest populaire mixer van het moment is nog steeds de DJM800

Edit: was te laat met posten thanx voor de info lead

en @nickname
de DJM800 heeft meer effecten want je moet de CFX er ook bijtellen
