Features
This unit 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.
The included rekordbox (Mac/Windows) music management software
can be used to prepare playlists, cues, loops, hot cues and beat grids
required for DJ play unhurriedly at home. This allows you to devote all
your attention to your DJ performance at the disco/nightclub on the day
of the performance, with total assurance. From acquiring music files to
DJ performances, all steps in the cycle of the DJ’s work can be accom-
plished smoothly.
rekordbox (Mac/Windows)
rekordbox is a software program allowing users who have purchased
a Pioneer DJ player supporting rekordbox to manage music files to be
used for DJ performances.
The included rekordbox music management software can be used
for the management (analysis, settings, creation, history storage) of
music files on computers. Using music files managed with rekordbox in
combination with this unit makes it possible to achieve outstanding DJ
performances.
In these operating instructions, the version of rekordbox for Mac/
Windows is referred to as “rekordbox (Mac/Windows)”. “rekordbox” is
used to indicate the versions of rekordbox (Mac/Windows) and rekord-
box (iOS/Android) simultaneously, as well as when referring to rekordbox
functions directly.
rekordbox (iOS/Android)
rekordbox (iOS/Android), a smartphone application that can be down-
loaded free of charge, can be used for the management (analysis, set-
tings, creation, history storage) of music files on mobile devices. Using
music files managed with rekordbox (iOS/Android) in combination with
this unit makes it possible to achieve outstanding DJ performances.
!	 In these operating instructions, the version of rekordbox for mobile
devices is referred to as “rekordbox (iOS/Android)”.
PRO DJ LINK
Two types of PRO DJ LINK functions are provided: “SD & USB Export”
using an SD memory card or USB device (flash memory device or hard
disk) and “rekordbox LINK Export” using a computer on which rekordbox
is installed.

 SD & USB Export
rekordbox music files and management data can be exchanged using
storage devices (SD, USB). This eliminates the need to take the com-
puter to discos or clubs.
At home or in a studio

 rekordbox LINK Export
When this unit and a computer are connected by LAN cable, the rekord-
box music files and management data can be exchanged directly. This
eliminates the need to export the data to a storage device (SD, USB).
Wireless connection using a wireless LAN router (or wireless LAN
access point) is also possible.
At home or in a studio
rekordbox
!	 Add music files to collections and analyze them.
!	 Make the preparations on rekordbox.

!	 Use the rekordbox data for the performance.
!	 Share the rekordbox data using the PRO DJ LINK function.
At home or in a studio
rekordbox

BEAT SYNC
The tempo and beat position of the track to be played on this unit can
automatically be matched to another DJ player connected by PRO
DJ LINK. The assistance to mixing provided by the beat sync function
makes it possible to hold performances with mixing, effects, etc., greatly
expanding the range of DJ performances. (The tracks must be analyzed
ahead of time with rekordbox in order to use the beat sync function.)
MY SETTINGS
Some of this unit’s settings can be written onto and called out from
storage devices (SD, USB). It is also possible to make this unit’s settings
using rekordbox. The settings you use at home can be called out imme-
diately, so you can devote all your attention to your performance at the
disco/nightclub, with total assurance.
BROWSE
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 informa-
tion in easily understandable fashion and a rotary selector with easy
operation lets you select tracks with no stress.
WAVE ZOOM
An enlarged waveform of the track that can be enlarged or reduced is
displayed. This enlarged waveform is color-coded by band, allowing you
to check the track’s information visually in greater detail.
BEAT COUNTDOWN
The number of beats remaining to the stored cue points is displayed.
When cue points are set and stored in advance at breaks in the tracks,
etc., this gives you an accurate account of the number of beats to the
set point.
QUANTIZE
The CDJ-2000NXS 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 posi-
tion at which the button was pressed.
On this unit, accurate, on-beat performances are possible without break-
ing the rhythm of the currently playing track, not only when making
settings but also when using such functions as looping, reversing and
hot cueing during playback.
SLIP MODE
This unit is equipped with a slip mode function that keeps the track mov-
ing in the background while looping, reversing, scratching, hot cueing or
pausing. This enables innovative DJ performances while maintaining the
original track’s development, even after looping, reversing, scratching,
hot cueing or pausing are finished.
HIGH SOUND QUALITY
The CDJ-2000NXS 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.
SOUND CARD
This unit 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 equipment can be connected easily.

 Playback of discs created on a computer or DVD
recorder
Depending on the application’s settings and the computer’s environ-
ment settings, it may not be possible to play discs created on a com-
puter. Record discs in a format playable on this unit. 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 46 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.

 Regarding copy protected CDs
This unit is designed to CD standards. Operation and performance of
discs with standards other than CD standards is not guaranteed.

 About playing DualDiscs
A DualDisc is a new two-sided disc, one side of which contains DVD
content — video, audio, etc. — while the other side contains non-DVD
content such as digital audio material.
The non-DVD, audio side of the disc is not compatible with this player.
For more detailed information on the DualDisc specification, please refer
to the disc manufacturer or disc retailer.

 About 8 cm discs
8 cm discs cannot be played. Do not mount 8 cm adapters on discs and
play the discs on this unit. The adapter could come off while the disc is
rotating, damaging both the disc and this unit.

About ejecting discs by force
!	 If the disc cannot be ejected by pressing the [DISC EJECTh] button, the disc can be forcibly ejected by inserting the disc force eject pin into the disc
force eject pin insertion hole on the main unit’s front panel.
!	 When forcibly ejecting a disc, be sure to do so following the procedure below.
1	 Press the [POWER ON/OFF] button to turn this unit’s power off, then wait at least 1 minute.
Never forcibly eject a disc directly after turning off the set’s power. Doing so is dangerous for the reasons described below.
The disc will still be spinning when ejected and could hit your fingers, etc., causing injury.
Also, the disc clamp will rotate in an unstable way, and the disc could get scratched.
2	 Use the included disc force eject pin. (Do not use anything else.)
The included disc force eject pin is mounted on this unit’s bottom panel. When the pin is inserted all the way into the insertion hole, the disc is ejected
5 mm to 10 mm out of the disc insertion slot. Grasp the disc with your fingers and pull it out.

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 outside. 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
Irregularly shaped discs other than standard 12 cm discs cannot be
played on this unit (doing so will lead to damage or accidents).
Specially shaped discs (heart-shaped, hexagonal, etc.) cannot be played
on this unit. Do not attempt to play such discs, as they could damage
the unit.
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.
