Features
The CDJ-2000 is a multi player for professional DJs, offering the variety of functions, durability and operability required for working in discos and nightclubs.
MULTI MEDIA, MULTI FORMAT
The CDJ-2000 can play not only discs (CDs and DVDs), but also music files recorded on SD memory cards and USB devices (flash memory drives and hard disks).
Supported music file formats include not only music CD (CD-DA) and MP3 but also AAC, WAV and AIFF.
rekordboxTM
The included rekordbox music management software can be used to prepare playlists, cues, loops, hot cues and other data required for DJ play unhurriedly at home
ahead of time. This allows you to devote all your attention to DJ play at the disco/nightclub, with total assurance. From acquiring music files to DJ play, all steps in the
cycle of the DJ’s work can be accomplished smoothly.
rekordbox is an application for managing music files which are used for DJ play with a Pioneer DJ Player (i.e. CDJ-2000, CDJ-900).
Data that has been detected and measured, as well as any points which have been set and stored using rekordbox, can be used in combination with a Pioneer DJ Player
(i.e. CDJ-2000, CDJ-900) to achieve outstanding DJ performance.
PRO DJ LINK
Functions include “SD & USB Export” using SD memory cards and USB devices (flash memory drives and hard discs) and “rekordbox LINK Export” using the computer
on which rekordbox is installed.

 SD & USB Export
This function can be used to transfer rekordbox music files and management data using SD memory cards/USB devices. This eliminates the need to take your com-
puter to the disco or club.

nates the need to export data to SD memory cards/USB devices.

SOUND CARD
The CDJ-2000 is equipped with exclusive interface and MIDI interface for controlling the DJ software of other brands. There is also a built-in sound card, so other equip-
ment can be connected easily.
DISPLAY
A large 6.1-inch color LCD is used to display not only text data but also jacket photos. The combination of a GUI displaying music file information in easily understand-
able fashion and a rotary selector with easy operation lets you select tracks with no stress.
WAVE DISPLAY
WAVE displays indicate the data with a higher resolution than previous Pioneer products.
NEEDLE SEARCH
When the NEEDLE SEARCH pad is touched with a finger, the sound near the position at which the pad is touched is played instantaneously. This makes for faster point
searching than ever before.
TAG LIST
In addition to playlists prepared using rekordbox, tracks to be played next can be temporarily collected inside the CDJ-2000. The music files added to the tag list can be
displayed as a list. This function is extremely convenient for selecting tracks during live performances.
KEYWORD SEARCH
Keyword searching, letter jumping and other functions let you quickly and precisely search for the desired music file.
HISTORY MEMORY
The CDJ-2000 is equipped with a history function storing the playing history of music files. Playlists can be created from this playing history using rekordbox.
0.5 FRAME STEP
The minimum frame has evolved from 1 (1/75 seconds) to 0.5 frames. This makes it possible to set the cue and loop points with greater precision to achieve accurate,
advanced DJ play.
ADVANCED JOG DIAL
The jog ring illumination lights in four places, so the top and side edges of the jog dial are clearly visible, even in dark DJ booths. This can also be used to impress the
audience.
QUANTIZE
The CDJ-2000 is equipped with a quantize function for putting a track on beat even when the button is pressed roughly, as long as the track has been analyzed with
rekordbox. When setting real time cues and hot cues, the beat is automatically set to the beat closest to the position at which the button was pressed.
HIGH SOUND QUALITY
The CDJ-2000 is designed for thorough improvement of the sound quality, for both the digital and analog outputs.
For the digital circuitry, a high performance Wolfson D/A converter is used to faithfully reproduce even the most delicate sounds, achieving clear, high quality sound
with a rich sense of mass and acoustic field.
For the analog circuitry, a hybrid OP amplifier is used to reduce to the utmost limits that inaudible noise of 20 kHz and higher that can blur the original sound. Unwanted
digital noise is shut out to achieve clear, highly transparent sound faithful to the original.

 Playback of discs created on a computer or DVD recorder
Depending on the application’s settings and the computer’s environment set-
tings, it may not be possible to play discs created on a computer. Record discs in
a format playable on the CDJ-2000. For details, contact your application’s selling
agent.
It may not be possible to play discs created on a computer or DVD recorder due
to the disc’s properties, scratches or dirt, or poor recording quality (dirt on the
recording lens, etc.).
See Handling discs on page 28 for instructions on handling discs.

 Creating backup discs
When CD-R/-RW, DVD-R/-RW, DVD+R/+RW, DVD-R DL (dual layer) and DVD+R
DL (dual layer) discs are paused or left in the pause mode at cue points for long
periods of time, it may become difficult to play the disc that point, due to the
properties of the disc. When a specific point is looped repeatedly an extremely
large number of times, it may become difficult to play that point.
When playing valuable discs, we recommend making backup discs.

!	 USB devices equipped with flash card readers may not operate.
!	 If a current above the allowable level is detected in the CDJ-2000’s USB port,
it could happen that a warning message is displayed, the power to the USB
device is cut off and signal transfer is stopped. To restore normal operation,
remove USB devices connected to the player, then press USB STOP. Avoid
reusing the USB device for which the excess current was detected. If normal
operation is not restored after performing the above operation (if signals are
not transferred), try turning off the player’s power then turning it back on.
!	 Depending on the USB device you are using, the desired performance may
not be achieved.
About MP3 files
MP3 files can have a constant bit rate (CBR) or a variable bit rate (VBR). Both
types of files can be played on the CDJ-2000, but the search and super fast search
functions are slower with VBR files. If your priority is operability, we recommend
recording MP3 files in CBR.
The CDJ-2000 supports MP3 files in the formats shown below.

continued breach of this Agreement.
5	 Termination
Pioneer may terminate this Agreement at any time upon Your breach of any

in connection with this Agreement or its subject matter, under any theory
of liability, for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential or punitive
damages, or damages for lost profits, revenue, business, savings, data,
use, or cost of substitute procurement, even if advised of the possibility
of such damages or if such damages are foreseeable. In no event will
Pioneer’s liability for all damages exceed the amounts actually paid by
You to Pioneer or its subsidiaries for the Program. The parties acknowl-
edge that the liability limits and risk allocation in this Agreement are
reflected in the Program price and are essential elements of the bargain
between the parties, without which Pioneer would not have provided the
Program or entered into this Agreement.
2	 The limitations or exclusions of warranties and liability contained in this
Agreement do not affect or prejudice Your statutory rights as consumer
and shall apply to You only to the extent such limitations or exclusions
are permitted under the laws of the jurisdiction where You are located.
3	 Severability and Waiver. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be
illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable, that provision will be enforced
to the extent possible or, if incapable of enforcement, deemed to be
severed and deleted from this Agreement, and the remainder will con-
tinue in full force and effect. The waiver by either party of any default or
breach of this Agreement will not waive any other or subsequent default
or breach.
4	 No Assignment. You may not assign, sell, transfer, delegate or otherwise
dispose of this Agreement or any rights or obligations under it, whether
voluntarily or involuntarily, by operation of law or otherwise, without
Pioneer’s prior written consent. Any purported assignment, transfer or
delegation by You will be null and void. Subject to the foregoing, this
Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the par-
ties and their respective successors and assigns.
5	 Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement
between the parties and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agree-
ments or representations, whether written or oral, concerning its sub-
ject matter. This Agreement may not be modified or amended without
Pioneer’s prior and express written consent, and no other act, document,
usage or custom will be deemed to amend or modify this Agreement.
6	 You agree that this Agreement shall be governed and construed by and
under the laws of Japan.

Cautions on use
About condensation
Water droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit (on operating parts and
lenses) in the winter, for example, if the unit is moved from a cold place into a
warm room or if the temperature in the room in which the unit is installed rises
suddenly (through heating, etc.). The unit will not operate properly and will not
be playable with condensation inside. Let the unit stand for 1 to 2 hours at room
temperature (though this time depends on the conditions of the condensation)
without turning on the power. The water droplets will evaporate and the unit will
become playable. Condensation can occur in the summer as well if the unit is
exposed to the direct wind from an air-conditioner, etc. If this happens, move the
unit to a different location.
Cleaning the lens
The player’s lens should not become dirty in normal use, but if for some reason it
should malfunction due to dust or dirt, consult your nearest Pioneer authorized
service center. Although lens cleaners for players are commercially available, we
advise against using them since some may damage the lens.
Handling discs
Storing
!	 Always place discs in their cases and store them vertically, avoiding hot,
humid places, places exposed to direct sunlight and extremely cold places.
!	 Be sure to read the cautions included with the disc.
Cleaning discs
!	 Discs may not play if there are fingerprints or dust on them. In this case, use a
cleaning cloth, etc., to gently wipe the disc from the inside towards the out-
side. Do not use dirty cleaning cloths.
!	 Do not use benzene, thinner or other volatile chemicals. Also do not use
record spray or antistatic agents.
!	 For tough dirt, apply some water to a soft cloth, wring out thoroughly, wipe off
the dirt, then wipe off the moisture with a dry cloth.
!	 Do not use damaged (cracked or warped) discs.
!	 Do not let the signal surface of discs get scratched or dirty.
!	 Do not place two discs in the disc tray, one on top of the other.
!	 Do not attach pieces of paper or stickers to discs. Doing so could warp discs,
making it impossible to play them. Also note that rental discs often have
labels attached to them, and the label’s glue may have oozed out. Check that
there is no glue around the edges of such labels before using rented discs.
About specially shaped discs
Specially shaped discs (heart-shaped, hexagonal, etc.) cannot be played on this
player. Do not attempt to play such discs, as they could damage the player.
About condensation on discs
Water droplets (condensation) may form on the surface of discs if they are moved
from a cold place (particularly in winter) into a warm room. Discs may not play
normally if there is condensation on them. Carefully wipe the water droplets off
the surface of the disc before loading it.
