Very nice units actually, but $2400? Oh my.
Real price is looking under $2k. A bit more than the existing CDJ-2000's. Which were already too expensive anyway.
They look like nice feature upgrades. Just enough to give new functionality, but distinctively still a CDJ... and easy to use.
Sync, meh. Everyone's up in arms. If you don't like it, don't use it. I have had sync via traktor for what 5 years and don't use it. Quantized loops, however, I do use quite a bit. It's another tool just like anything else.
Not sure if I'll upgrade yet. I can get a pretty penny for my existing 2000's, so it might be worth staying up with the upgrade curve.
