This video is a followup of last year's c314 scratch demo. A few months ago I moved up to Pioneer CDJ-800s. Am I able to do anything on the Pioneers I couldn't on the c314s? Not really. In fact, there's a few things the 800s lack that the c314s (and c324s) have.
For one, the c314s had four cue / loop pads and a pitch bend, two features I greatly miss. On the other hand, I gained a MUCH better LCD, adjustable loops, a position indicator inside the jog wheel, and more reliability (though I was fortunate enough to have never encountered any problems with my c314s; others weren't so lucky). The auto loop buttons aren't bad either and I must say scratches sound more authentic on the 800s than on the c314s (especially when using MP3s).
The 800s also do not lock up occasionally like the c314s did; the bigger jog wheel is definitely welcome. The bigger wheel and jog wheel LCD is a tradeoff though; while the c314's wheel was undeniably simple, it was very agile. Doing some of the same scratches on the 800 needs a little more force and adjustment. Also, it's very easy to loose your grip on the 800's platter if your palms get sweaty; the rougher finish on the c314's platters prevented this.
Maneuvering through folders on MP3 CDs is MUCH more intuitive on the 800s. The adjustable start / brake on the 800 is so much more intuitive than on the c314. While the 800 gives a finer pitch resolution, it lacks the c314's multiple pitch ranges. Instead of having the c314's option of 10, 25, 50, and 100% ranges you are only allowed 10 or 100% with CDs, and 10 or 16% with MP3s.
So those are the pros and cons of the unit feature wise. This demonstration is very similar to my c314 demo but done on the CDJ-800s. Hopefully it is of some use to you. For reference, the c314 demo can be viewed here:
The battle record I am using is "Bully Breaks 2" burnt to CD; the instrumental is "Theme from S.W.A.T" by Rhythm Heritage. The song at the end is something I put together called "Just Smile (and enjoy yourself)" that you can listen to here:
