Pioneer DJ XDJ-1000MK2 Review

Pioneer DJ’s XDJ-1000 was an important step forward for the company in a couple of ways.

For starters, it was the first player to ship without a CD drive, relying solely on playback from a USB drive or connected computer. It was also Pioneer’s first player to include a touchscreen for advanced features like Beat Jump and full QWERTY keyboard search.

Nearly two years later, the company released the XDJ-1000MK2, which at first glance appears to be similar, but has some improvements under the hood.

On this week’s episode of Tips and Tricks, Mojaxx looks at the XDJ-1000MK2 and determines if the new features are worth the upgrade.
