Excelent piece of technology

By DJ Arson

from Peoria, IL

An exceptional design, button placement is intuitive, and layered effects rock. my other turntable is a numark axis 8, and togeather, there is nothing they can't do!


WoW I got this last week and I am allready playing

By Dj Suspect

from San Luis Arizona

Well this is your Dj Suspect chating about this awesome machine, I really love this! (they are my first TT)everything is nice, effects the scrath mode work just fine but you need to find the exact moment. I also love how you store the cue and effect man this is ZWEET (SWEET) the only problem that they have is that hey take their time to mark the BPM and they dont show the name of the song your playing. Rather than that everything is beatifull! and I mean FULL.

A pretty sweet machine

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Because I already had so many cd's I decided to get the CDi-500. The effects are awesome and the scratching is really on cue. The screen is SO easy to see and read. It gives ya all the information you need to see including what position your at on the cd. Besides that the only downfall is that the platter doesn't rotate which would probably make it more vinyl-user friendly. Still the price is right and so are the effects.


Awesome CD Player

Awesome CD Player for mobile DJs. Would definately recommend to others. Very mobile... packs up quickly and very light.
