Product Description

Designed for DJs by DJs and drawing inspiration from our industry standard CDJ-1000 series, the CDJ-400 is a flexible, affordable performance player for the aspiring club DJ to use at home. The CDJ-400 allows you to play your MP3 collection off CD-R/RW discs as well as music from mass storage USB devices, such as USB keys, external hard drives and portable media devices. Virtually all of the button and slider functions can send MIDI data via USB output, making it possible for the decks to control external DJ software such as our DJS, an MP3 mixing software that emulates a full Pioneer DJ setup on your PC. It includes 8 innovative effects, a waveform display with cue / looping ability and can convert CD / line input signals to MP3 within an easy to manage music library.

i thought i would put this up to help people who are thinking of buying the CDJ400s
It a story of good and bad,
The good: well they are great little dj cd players for the money, they feel good and have basicly the same layout as the top of the range CDJ1000s, the on board effects are great, very easy to use and they sound very good, also the new addition of a usb slot is very useful, you can plug memory sticks and even an ipods in to the slot and it works well

Now the bad: i have owned 2 of these units for 10 months, the first six months i have to say were trouble free,no problems, after that though they started freezing, first it was once in a while then it become more frequent, now at this prestent time they are freezing up everytime i use them, i get about 45mins use before it happens,

As a professional Dj i find this totaly unaceptable, any dj will tell you that a cd deck freezing up on you in a club or during a radio show is no laughing matter, makes you look a bit of a fool,

I believe a pioneer software update would fix this problem, but until they issue one I cant recommend these decks as they are just not reliable enough at the moment, my advice is go for the CDJ 800

****************************************************************

Update: Dec08

Pioneer have updated the firmware for the cdj400s which at the moment have stopped all the freezing problems that I had (See above)
Fingers crossed they are working perfectly now, so I would definitely recommend the cdj400's at this point

By Picard TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 25 Jan. 2009
These are great turntables if you're a DJ on the road. Be aware though the the platter is much smaller than that of the CDJ 800/1000, but if you require less music manipulation than that of club DJ's, then these are fantastic CDJ's. The USB slot is a great feature though - I try not to get 'too' used to them though, as the 1000's which I use regularly don't have one. The only thing I would say is that the Pitch Control doesn't have a guide on the side, which means making precise beat-matches can be difficult if you use visionary skills. People tend to use the digital BPM counter on the display, but this is poor practice in the long term.

If you want a good valued set of decks with the bells and whistles of it's bigger brothers, look no further!

When it comes to DJ equipment, Pioneer is a prestigious household name - and quite rightly so.

Firstly I should start by saying that I am not a professional by any stretch of the imagination, but I do know my way around a CDJ. And whilst they may be the first pair of CDJs I have purchased and owned myself, I think I can give a fair insight as I have used others.

The CDJ-400 is now one of the older CD decks on the market, but for me still one of the safest bets. Its clean design and simple features made is easy for me to get to grips with. As mentioned in previous reviews, the USB feature is a really nice, and revolutionary touch. This is something that 20 years ago vinyl junkies would have simply dreamed of having! They are smaller then their newer, and more flashy CDJ-800s and CDJ-1000s, which makes for a lighter and more mobile unit. The effects and exciting too, which are 'Bubble, Trans and Wah' when used in the vinyl setting, and 'Jet, Roll and Wah'. The jog wheel is fairly small, but very usable. The quality of sound that transfers through to your speakers is of the highest order as well, which is a huge brucie bonus.

I have no reason not to give my trusty CDJs a five-star review. So if you're like me, and will use these decks for recreation and general messing around then the Pioneer CDJ-400 is the winner.
