More movable parts = more things that could potentially go wrong. I could say with a lot of certainty that no, no Pioneer CDJ will every have a motorised platter.
Will Pioneer ever produce CDJs with a motorized platter?
I doubt it,
The technics ones never really took off in my opinion.
Its never been the methodology of pio..
the technic one was crap anyway, i was a big technics fan have sl-1210 and loved them the build quality was great, as i am sure was the quality of the CD unit, however the digital distortion was throught the room when scratching, so finding a beat was almost imossible and scratching pressented big problems
Lets hope they don't. Those motorized deals are horrid to use. The current CDJ format is far more usable.
I prefer the CDJ way of doing it, but I found the motorized platter of the V7 very intuitive. 'Different strokes' and all that...
There's a reason more non-turntables haven't done it; it's not completely necessary and if it's not "done right", it's not worth doing at all.
