Known and wanted mostly for only one function, slip mode! The one the cdj 2000 didn't have. The son of a cdj 1000 and a 2000. I like the loop section insted of hot cues, very intuitive to use like the cdj 800
While superseded by the CDJ-900NXS model, the 900 can still be found in clubs & bars proving that it has stood the test of time as a rock solid alternative to the more expensive CDJ-2000 range. With a few minor differences to the controls (most notably the lack of hot cues in favour of auto loop recalls), a basic display and the lack of SD slot, there are obviously features that a DJ who has become accustom to the 2000's will miss. However if you can overlook these differences, the CDJ-900 is still a great alternative that provides all of the essential functions in very familiar layout.
