The Pioneer Electronics CDJ-850-K Performance Multi Player (Black) is a CD/USB audio deck capable of playing WAV, AIFF, MP3 and AAC files. The bright and detailed display assists in fast music identification and selection. The CDJ-850 has a front loading CD drive, which can read manufactured audio CDs as well as CD-R/RW's. External storage devices, such as flash drives, connect to the type A USB port on the top panel. The CDJ can utilize these sources without any assistance from a computer.
One touch tempo-sensing looping functions make the CDJ-850 excellent for very involved DJ sets. Instead of spending time tweaking the loop, you can be one step ahead in your mix. The CDJ-850 can also transmit MIDI signal from its back panel type B USB connection, which allows control of third party DJ software from a laptop. The built-in HID technology often eliminates the need for a control disc. The CDJ-850 has a professional-level feature set suitable for all DJs, including helpful tools for beginners.
