Legato Link Conversion For High Quality Sound
Equipped with Pioneer’s wide range technology– Legato Link Conversion. The CDJ-1000MK2 is capable of reproducing sound frequencies above 20kHz, which are lost during normal CD-format playback. Not only does this give great sound reproduction but sounds closer to the original recording and more analog like vinyl.
Shock-Proof Memory and Anti-Vibration Construction
Sound jumps or skipping is prevented by using a 16 second shock-proof memory for normal CD play (minimum of 10 seconds if scratching and reading wave data at the same time in Vinyl mode).
Oil-dampened floating suspension prevents sound skipping, even when the player is subjected to impact during use or vibrations generated from high volume music and low frequency bass.
The CDJ-1000MK2 is equipped with full-feature digital output. This means you can keep your scratching and master tempo playback entirely in the digital domain. Users who simply want to use the digital output for archival purposes may do so via the digital mode switch on the rear of the unit.
