For new DJs looking to elevate and greatly enhance your performance and creativity, Pioneer CDJ-850 delivers enhanced mixing features, amazing audio quality and a new platform for them to share your music.

The Pioneer CDJ-850 enables playback of MP3, AAC, WAV and AIFF audio files from CDs and USB drives. A USB port located on top enables you to quickly connect an external storage device such as a hard drive packed with music files, minimizing the need to bring a laptop computer to performances.

The Pioneer CDJ-850 turntable has rekordbox, Pioneer's music software that organizes and catalogs a DJ's music collection. When music files are imported to rekordbox, the software analyzes each file and prepares them for use specifically with the new CDJ turntable.

Inheriting the club standard layout and precise control features of its professional CDJ series, the CDJ-850 integrates a large 206mm jog dial for continuous free and easy control along with a rotary selector and browse buttons integrated within the display.

You can mix a variety of music formats and media, as the CDJ-850 is compatible with MP3, AAC, WAV and AIFF digital audio formats recorded on USB drives or CD-R/RW discs.

Pioneer's Rekordbox makes it easy for home DJs to organize your music collection as it analyzes files (settings, playlists, history) to your custom preference. As used by professionals to optimize DJ play, the software enables you to:

1. Analyze data such as the Wave, Beat Grid, BPM, and ID3 Tag of music files

2. Create cues and loops settings

3. Create and edits playlists

4. Save history of music files played on the CDJ-850

DJs using the rekordbox software can easily export your music files and custom managed data onto a USB drive and quickly plug in directly to the CDJ-850 and access tracks without the need to be linked to a PC. Play histories on the CDJ-850 are automatically recorded onto rekordbox via connected USB drive for the DJ's next session which makes the cycle of music file management, DJ play and preparation for future sessions very simple.

The display and user interface of the player is designed for quick and fluid music selection. Combined with its rotary selector, navigation through music lists (title, artist, BPM, etc.) is fast and easy. The WAVE display enables smooth DJ play because the user can visually analyze the flow and dynamics of the entire song.

The CDJ-850 player features MIDI, enabling control of DJ software. With the use of the built-in USB HID interface, the CDJ-850 can also control more complex operations of DJ software without the need for a control disc. For additional versatility, the player can also be used as a PC audio interface.

Equipped with an editable Tag List functionality, users of the player can easily register tracks during play or preview to add to your playlist. The song order in the Tag List can be altered and saved as a playlist in rekordbox.
