Who Should Own One?
The CDJ-600 is aimed squarely at entry level DJ’s. For under R 10 K you can in fact buy two CDJ-600’s and if you shop around a DJ mixer and set of headphones too. Not bad going. What’s cool about the CDJ-600 is that it will offer you a perfect stepping stone to the world of digital deejaying with the added USB feature.
What you get for a really keen price is a featured packed and capable DJ media player that will help you rock the party no doubt. There are one or two diosyncrasies that I would have done better, namely Tempo Shift % on the display and left and right track search buttons for fast cueing but admittedly Gemini do make up for this with a host of extra features missing on some more expensive CDJ variants. In conclusion; if you’re looking to get into deejaying and are in the market for a suitable setup that’ll offer you hours of fun, a pathway into the digital world of deejaying, hop on down to the closest store and give the CDJ-600 a whirl. It’s well worth checking out.
