Full-color LCD display for quick song selection and instant understanding of musical progress

The “CDJ-2000NXS” adopts a large 6.1-inch full-color LCD to clearly display information that is required when performing DJ play. Music artwork and large quantities of music information are displayed in lists, and the intended music can be found easily and intuitively. In addition to the existing “WAVE” display that provides a visual understanding of all music, “WAVE ZOOM” makes it possible to instantly grasp the preceding music development by displaying waveforms that can be expanded/minimized to five different levels color-coded according to bandwidth.

“SLIP” and “QUANTIZE”*5 functions for reliable performance without changing progress of original music


The “SLIP MODE” function keeps music moving in the background during LOOP/REVERSE/SCRATCH/ HOT CUE/PAUSE. This makes it possible to produce bold musical arrangements without changing the progress of the original music even after these functions have been used.

EX. When using the Slip function during a loop


The “CDJ-2000NXS” is loaded with a QUANTIZE function that automatically and accurately quantizes when using LOOP/REVERSE/HOT CUE, even if the dynamic of the beat has gone out of sync. This enables reliable performance without breaking the rhythm of music during playback.

My Settings function for immediate access to personal preferences

The function settings of this device can be saved to USB storage devices, SD memory cards, smartphones and tablets, and can be applied to this device as necessary. In addition, “CDJ-2000NXS” settings can be made on “rekordbox™” and sent directly to this device, which means that you can instantly switch to your own settings when prepared in advance when alternating DJs.

New algorithm enables master tempo to deliver sound quality more faithful to original tone

A new algorithm has been adopted to deliver sound quality that is more faithful to the original tone, even when there are drastic shifts in tempo during playback of wide-ranging music. This enables high-quality mix playback even when there is a big difference in track tempo.

High sound quality design for faithful reproduction of original tone and clear/powerful club sound

While inheriting the audio circuit from the “CDJ-2000”, this new device delivers a powerful sound that is stable even in high-volume environments such as DJ booths by means of improved anti-shock properties and reduced contact resistance through the adoption of a type of AC inlet that has a large power cable contact area. A clear and powerful sound that is faithful to the original has also been realized by reducing jitter to 1/4 through the high-precision engineered clock of a high-performance D/A converter produced by Wolfson Microelectronics, adoption of a high sound quality operational amplifier, and digital noise reduction of power sources.

Support for various media and formats

A wide range of media and formats are supported to suit various styles of DJ play. As well as smartphones/tablets, music files can also be played from USB storage devices such as flash memory and hard disks, SD memory cards, audio CDs and DVDs. MP3, AAC, WAV and AIFF file formats are supported.
