While it's beyond me why the forum topic "cdj 2000 vs cdj 2000 nexus hardware difference" thread was closed in the middle and answers were not given, I feel Gavin asked a valid question.
As quoted by Gavin: @Shahar > Again, why do you feel cheated on something you chose to buy because it fitted your needs? If I bought a new MacBook Pro today, and then a new model was announced tomorrow, should I expect Apple to give me the new model MBP for free? That doesn't make sense. The software is dependent on the hardware within the unit so new features can't be added to older units.
At the time of purchase it didn't exactly "fit my needs." but it looked promising. It was from a very reputable corporation that make high end products and takes care of their product purchasers. And the product itself was able to read dvd's, read just about any type of media out there..or so i though. it is the new and very expensive of several prior units beforehand. cdj 400's 800's, 900's, for all i know there more more in between.. and now it's cdj 2000.. and it also has a huge color screen.. it's all very PROMISING.. but not filling.
I figured, at some point, this very reputable corporation would get creative with the abilities of this unit and would blow my mind away with thier firmware update. Instead, they came out with a new unit.. and it is that specific unit with that spicific software upgrade that "fits my needs." and to really burn my biscuit, it's introduced a short while after i purchased the previous unit. long enough so i cannot return the old one, but early enough so i feel cheated.
Additionally, I looked up Wolfman DAC's. that's all audio output.
- Upgrading to the Looping fx software has nothing to do with that.
- Upgrading to the 'traffic light' software has nothing to do with that.
- Upgrading to a useful wave form has nothing to do with that.
- enabling the cdj to play music from itunes has nothing to do with that.
..it has absolutely nothing to do with limiting the software design on all aspects of the unit.
Lastly, comparing Apple and Pioneer DJ. I have purchased an iPad 2 when it came out.. to this day, all software upgrades (and belive me.. they made several) added to the new ipad are available for the ipad2, and the original ipad as well. I have also purchased the iphone 4s when it came out.. AGAIN..to this day, all software upgrades added to the new iphone 5 are available for my iphone 4s. so, i do not feel cheated. sure there are a few hardware changes that i won't get. but that's understandable. it's the software i care about.. it's the software every owner of the cdj 2000 (mk1) cares about. not the hardware
I have been pushing away from purchasing pioneer dj products for over 10 years because i thought they were just hyped up. when i finally decided that pioneer dj is indeed a solid company built on trust and reliability, i see a slightly new unit with hardware difference i could not care less about .. but with software that indeed "fits my needs." ..
I feel that "the software presented with the cdj 2000 nexus was STOLEN from the cdj 2000 (mk1). That's why i feel cheated!
and please do not close nor delete this topic as we are clearly in the middle of a very heavy topic that's not silly in the least.
you asked, i answerd, i await eagerly for your reply.
