Professional Turntable

  • User-friendly control layout
  • High-torque direct drive system
  • Designed for optimal sound quality
  • Tempo control with variable width levels
  • Detachable power and audio cables

The DJ quality PLX-1000 direct drive analogue turntable is designed for DJs who enjoy the look, feel, and performance of vinyl for music playback. The model offers a highly familiar, user-friendly control layout, high-torque direct drive mechanism, and exceptional audio playback quality. Combine the PLX-1000 with a Pioneer professional series DJM mixer for an ideal system for true vinyl enthusiasts.

USER-FRIENDLY CONTROL LAYOUT
The PLX-1000 provides a user friendly layout familiar to top DJs of the past and present, providing quick tempo control capability on the right side of the player, start/stop button on the left side, and a high-torque platter with a lighted speed guide.

HIGH-TORQUE DIRECT DRIVE SYSTEM
The direct drive mechanism of the PLX-1000 provides high-torque resulting in stable rotation and exceptional control. The turntable can achieve a starting torque of at least 4.5kg/cm and can reach its fixed rotation speed within 0.3 seconds (at 33 1/3 rpm).

SOUND QUALITY DESIGN
To create an extremely stable player and prevent vibration, Pioneer utilized a heavy-mass zinc die-cast chassis for the top section of the player, reinforced with a bottom section made of 8-mm thick resin. The base of the unit was further enforced with 9-mm thick vibration-damping material that results in extremely stable playback. The tone arm also received great attention in build quality and design to maximize performance, using rubber insulation to minimize howling effects during audio playback. The RCA jacks feature gold-plated machine-cut parts for low impedance for excellent sound quality output.

TEMPO CONTROL
The player provides a range of tempo adjustments from 8% and 16% to 50%, giving users a range of pitch speeds. A "RESET" button for tempo sits next to the tempo slider for instant 0% fixed rotation speed.

DETACHABLE POWER AND AUDIO CABLES
The PLX-1000 is built with a detachable power and audio cable connection for increased convenience, especially at times when the unit is being moved around. Users are also able to interchange cables to further customize the sound quality.

After extensive research, I came across this TT to upgrade the sound of my system. I paired it with an Ortofon 2M bronze, and the sound is simply incredible. I brought the TT to a high end shop to have it set up, and was able to compare it with the Rega 3, and the Project the classic, and my TT sounded better. I highly recommend it.

The Pioneer PLX 1000 is a quality item. With a bit of tuning it can be a brilliant turntable. I bought mine for home use only. Not DJ use. I adjusted the arm, and had a hifi shop installed a decent no DJ needle- Nagaoka MP-110 phono cartridge. With this set up this turntable sounds really good. Highly recommend this turntable. A bit of patience and tuning it can miles ahead of any other entry turntable.

This table is also a super oem Hanpin tt but has the feel of the Technic 1200's. No dual start/stop buttons brake and start adjustments but works good all the same. A little overpriced but it IS a pioneer
