I was browsing around and came over this video of Pioneers DJM 2000 cut to gether by 123DJ.com
The system from Pioneer is getting MASSIVE and is simply mindblowing.
Would I like one? HELL YES!
Would I buy one? HELL NO!
I recon a Pioneer setup with two CDJ-2000 and one DJM-2000 will set you back ATLEAST $8.000! And that's just for a very cool CD/MP3 player and a super awsome mixer. You would probably want a computer aswell and that is not included in this estimate.
So if I've got $8.000 cash?
Here's what I would use it on:
- 2x New AWSOME HP Envy 14 ($2000)
- Native Instruments S4 DJ System with flightcase ($1300)
- 2x Denon DN-SC2000 ($700)
- Denon DN-X1700 ($1700)
- Akai Pro APC-40 with bag ($400)
- Abelton Suite ($900)
- Traktor Scratch Pro ($1000)
Two new powerfull high-end computers (One for Abelton and one for Traktor)
Two complete Traktor setups (One new S4 and one Traktor Pro with the high-end Denon)
A complete Abelton setup
Why would a venue invest in a system where the DJ would just put the system away and replace it with their own setup anyway? Because a DJ would probably want to play on something they feel comfortable playing on.
I would like to see Pioneer produce a pure blooded MIDI controller with no other functions because they do produce great equipment. Otherwise I would probably invest a Pioneer system if it was priced about at half the price it sels for today.
