Classic Cd Player - Pioneer Cdj-500s

Recommended Posts



In America the model name was Pioneer CDJ-700, while in Europe it was called the CDJ-500s.


Anti Vibration

The revolutionary oil-dampened floating suspension prevents sound skipping, even when the unit is subjected to impact during use or vibrations from high music volume. The case also incorporates a specially insulated disc compartment to withstand the explosive sound pressure of club environments.


Compact design

The CDJ-500S's compact design means that it will fit in any DJ booth, radio or recording studio, no matter how small the available space is. All controls are big and well laid out for easy tactile operation.


Easy Installation

The CDJ-500S can be mounted at any angle up to 45o towards the DJ, for maximum flexibility. What's more, putting two units together gives you a standard 19" width; so they will fit in standard industry rack. There's also an optional installation bracket available, so the CDJ-500S will fit in the most difficult locations.


Sensitive Jog Dial

The extra large, quick-response Jog Dial makes it very easy searching the music frame-by-frame and selecting precise cue points. The Jog Dial is also used to synchronise beats, once having been matched, and to correct the Loop-Out point in real-time. Te degree of sensitivity gives you closer to vinyl (turntable) feel.


Flat Top Design

DJs used to working with vinyl turntables will have no problem switching to the top-mounted controls of the CDJ-500S.


Quick Start

There is no time lag when you hit the play (


Playing Address

A light bar graphically shows the track's elapsed or remaining playing time, just like a tone arm moving across a record.


Tempo Control

A DJ-standard long-stroke slide controls pitch and speed within a range of +10%. The digital display gives a readout in 0.1% increments. The response time of the Tempo Control has also been improved dramatically.


Headphone Output

The headphone output, with volume control on the rear panel, allows you to monitor the sound at any time and in any situation.


Master Tempo

An industry first! The Master Tempo control locks in the music's pitch even when the tempo is changed. You can speed up or slow down the beat without any change in vocal or instrumental tone. A new way of mixing to the DJ world!


Seamless Loop

Any phrase of the CD can be sampled and seamlessly looped as many times as desired. When the loop is released, the song continues without any pause. The loop start is memorized so you can return any time.


Real-Time Loop

Setting the start point of a desired phrase on the CD can now be done in real-time during live performance. The end point is also set in real-time: when the loop is released, the music continues without any pause.


Loop-Out Adjust

Pressing the Loop-Out Adjust button during a loop brings you into the Loop-Out correction mode. In this mode, you can fine-tune the Loop-Out point in real-time by spinning the Jog Dial. The correct Out point is then confirmed by pushing the Loop Out button.


Long Loop

Up to 10 minutes of music can be seamlessly looped as many times as you want.


Short Loop

Looping half beats and phrases s short as one frame is possible



Even after releasing a loop, a push of the Reloop button will return you to the loop start point.
