"Pioneer announces today (17 January 2005) the release of the CDJ-200. Creating a new standard at this price point for Pro-DJ CD decks, the Pioneer CDJ-200 combines the key elements of Pioneerâ€™s market-proven Professional CDJ players with a host of innovative features such as full-function MP3 playback, Hot Loop, Beat Loop and the unique one button Loop Cutter, for creating loops within loops until the beat has been cut to infinity.
This technical excellence is complemented by a design thatâ€™s both visually stunning and DJ friendly â€“ the unit is robust, compact and portable â€“ and a truly affordable price, making it the ideal choice for serious home DJs, bars and other installations where space and budget is limited.
(loving the space aspect HATE those big ones which has precluded me from them and in fact the only thing i miss form them is the loop and accuracy)
The combination of exceptional build quality and advanced features such as full MP3 capability mean Pioneer have succeed in giving DJâ€™s a durable product, offering a professional solution without the premium price.
The CDJ-200 also has a unique Resume function that takes effect if a CD is ejected accidentally. Once the DJ re-inserts the disc, it automatically starts playing from exactly the point where it stopped. ****************** for frank and jon not that you';d ever do it again :wub:
The unit has a Digital Out socket too, so that all of the digital features available in DJ Mode can be carried over to a connected digital environment, as well as a headphone jack (with volume control) which allows the DJ to monitor a CD without connecting the Pioneer CDJ-200 to a mixer or external amplifier.

if your looking to get yer decks for the best possible price shop around and find all those places that state that they'll beat/match (no pun intended) any price....then start playing em all off against each other.....you have to be patient but it worked for me
