Pioneer have been active on the Dj market for 20 years now. Time to celebrate. In 1994 they released their first DJ worhty CDJ player on the market, the CDJ-500. This was the first step to succes in this business for Pioneer. Soon after this, they kept making big steps in the scene with the releases of the DJM-500 and the DJM-600, manly because of the build-in effect on the 600. A couple of years later the CDJ-1000 got released and the legend was born. This is a legend still going because the CDj-2000Nexus and CDJ-900Nexus are based on this model.
