Cdj-500mk2

Picked up some very cheap Pio CDJ-500MK2 decks, just for fun. A thing I don`t understand is how these decks could be used in clubs. Seems there is no "anti-shock" mechanism at all. Nudge them with your finger and the track jumps.

So have they ever been common/standard in clubs? I know they were released before the breakthrough of the CDJ.

They seem good enough, but they don`t handle vibrations, etc well...

Do you mean one of these:



If so, I still have one of these and the anti-shock is pretty good. I can pick the unit up, turn it upside down and give it a gentle shake and it still plays!

Maybe the age of the unit though, especially if the lens is a bit dirty. I had mine cleaned at one point because it was skipping quite often.

The 500s was the first with shock-damping.

Turntables have fairly beefy shock damping, and they skip, too. Could modern buffering technologies be the reason for better resilience to skipping in todays model?
