Pioneer's CDJ-2000 takes DJs to the next level

Vinyl may still reign supreme for audiophiles, but for DJs, they're no longer the go-to. Instead, they mix digital music on the new generation of turntables. And the new Pioneer CDJ-2000 lets them do it with a big old 6.1-inch LCD screen.

The screen shows song info, album art, wave data and other advance song info. In addition to the screen, it's got a "Needle Pad," which lets you jump to a specific point in a song with the touch of a finger. It plugs into a number of devices to load up with music, from laptops to iPods to DS cards, which is certainly more convenient than lugging around crates of records. It'll be available in November for a whopping $2,150.
