tl;dr - there is a loud electrical buzzing from the headphone jacks
Just got my DDJ-1000 (preordered on the day it was announced).
The center screen is great, and love the form factor however compared to all my other Pioneer gear there is a loud electrical buzzing when I connect my Macbook to the unit.
I've tried different USB cables, including the one that is included. I've switched ports on my computer, even using another Macbook. The electrical noise gets a lot more bearable when unplugging the USB,. This does not happen on my DDJ-RZ, or my older DDJ-SX2 or DDJ-SR. Also, when pressing buttons such as "SLIP", I can hear a high pitch noise when the screens and lights on the unit flash to indicate SLIP mode.
My second issue is that the sound feels 'harsher' and more overdriven than my other Pioneer gear. Was there a change in the DAC?
I have yet to use this unit out, but I'm concerned when hooking the outputs to a club PA this weekend that there will be electrical noise blasting out through the club's soundsystem.
Could this be because Pioneer opted to use a external wall wart that has 2 prongs (not a grounded 3 prong design)? I'm in the USA and ordered from an authorized US retailer. Thanks
