VU meters on Nexus 900

I have a question concerning my new Nexus 900 mixer. It's the first time I have a Pioneer mixer, and there's a thing that seems strange.

Let's say I connect a CDJ to input 1. Starts the CDJ. But I have my fader all the way down on channel 1, and I have not pressed the cue button. But the VU meter (leds) on channel 1 lights up. I thought they should only lights up, when I move the fader up or I press the cue button. Thats how it works on my old mixers.

I just want to now, if it's a mistake, or the VU meters shall react like this?

Of course it is normal. All Pioneer mixers since DJM 500 have separate meters for each channel, so you can see level for all channels at once. They show post EQ & Gain (Trim) and pre-fader level and you don't need to press cue for this.

Yah - the VU meter shows you where you have signal and at what level. The cue button merely a way to toggle what you hear in your headphones.
