Usually its a no brainer but this time it is really close as I can see so many wanting the 2000 nexus because of the beatslicer. If I where to bet I say the 900 nexus will be the club standard for sometime now. Mainly because its layout is more welcoming not to mention the price tag will allow more djs to purchase it over the 2000. So more djs will have a 900 nexus vs 2000 nexus so in turn more djs will demand 900 over the 2000 at the clubs they spin.
Do you think the new DJM 2000 Nexus will replace the DJM 900 as the new "Club Standard"?
Literally every club I've gone to over the past couple years has had an in-house setup of a DJM 900 Nexus and 4 CDJ 2000's (and occasionally an EFX or RMX 1000). Now that the new CDJ 2000 Nexus have come out and with the Nexus edition of the DJM 2000 just recently released, in your opinion, do you think that the DJM 2000 Nexus will become the new "standard" replacing the DJM 900?
I know both are great mixers. I only ask because I just bought a few of the new CDJ 2000nxs and a DJM 900 and would like to know if it might be a good idea to exchange the 900nxs for a 2000nxs so I can start learning on that? (I'm still within my authorized dealer's 30-day exchange policy).
Really interested in you guys opinions/thoughts on this as ordering this set has been the biggest purchase I've made in the past couple years so I'd like to know I made the right move with it =). So keep the 900 or exchange for the new 2000nxs? Also please keep in mind my main interest is what will be in clubs in the near future.
Thanks in advance for all comments, thoughts, and advice!

I Like to add that it's all about price for most djs and club owners I know including myself. Yes there are clubs that don't mind paying whatever for equipment but most try to make sure each purchase is worth the investment. When I purchased my 900 nexus when it came out, I only got it because I got a really good deal on it. I love the mixer but will never purchase it at retail price because I expect a little more. Same goes for the 2000 edition, at the retail price I expect it to do at least some basic video mixing. If I can get a great deal then I would make the change from 900 nexus to the 2000 nexus as the isolater beat effects should be interesting to use along with the beatslicer. Then again if you shop around you can get a rmx 1000 and a 900 nexus for about the same price as the 2000 nexus alone. Only time will tell.
2000 djm nexus for me combined rmx 1000
DJM900/800 will stay arround here I guess... Same feel and workflow.
At Creamfields, Abu Dhabi last week David Guetta used the DJM-900nexus, Armin used the DJM-2000... everyone has their preference- having both options to choose from is great!
I'm looking at some of the pictures for the 2013 Pioneer Calendar. Who am I seeing using a DJM2000 you may ask?
1) Nicole Moudaber
2) Wally Lopez
3) Armin van Buuren
4) Carl Cox
5) Erick Morillo
