  1. POWER.ON/OFF. Power on the unit after all the necessary connections are done.

  2. POWER SOCKET. Connect a universal AC cord.

  3. SEND/RETURN Use balanced pairs of ¼” TS jacks for the SEND and RETURN Inputs. These Outputs/Inputs are normally used to connect outboard effect units

  4. INPUTS. 2 Phono/CDLINE and 2 LINE/CDLINE inputs are provided by RCA jacks (one for each Deck/mixer channel). PHONO Inputs on CH1 and CH4 can be used to connect turntables. CDLINE Inputs (in all 4 mixer channels) can be used to connect CD Players. LINE Inputs in CH2 and CH3 can be used to connect other analogue Auxiliary Sources.

  5. MASTER 1 (BALANCED) Connect your amplifier using a pair of balanced XLR jacks. The level of this output is controlled by the MASTER LEVEL knob at the top panel

  6. MASTER 2 (UNBALANCED). Connect your amplifier using a pair of RCA cables. The level of this output is controlled by the MASTER LEVEL knob at the top panel

  7. REC OUT. Additional unbalanced Output. Use standard RCA cables and send the Master Output to an external recording device.

  8. BOOTH OUT Use a pair of balanced ¼“ TRS jacks to connect the unit with your secondary output (e.g. for monitor). The level of this output is controlled by the BOOTH knob at the top panel

  9. DIGITAL. S/PDIF Output. Used to digitally link mixers without converting to analog.

  10. CONTROL. 3.5mm mini phone jack type connections. If you connect a Pioneer CDJ Player with the supplied Control cables, you will be able to start/stop playback with the Volume faders of the DJM-850.

  11. MIC2 INPUT Connect a microphone using a balanced ¼” TRS plug or unbalanced TS plug.

  12. MIDI OUT Connect this input with the MIDI IN Terminal of an external MIDI sequencer.


Note: The Master, Booth and Rec outputs arrive from the same “Main Mix” signal. The first 2 have their own LEVEL control at the top panel. Because all signals are identical, users may use any of these outputs as the “Main” output if a different cable type is required for system connection.
