OVERVIEW

Professional, direct-drive analog turntable.

The DJ-quality PLX-1000 direct-drive analog turntable is designed for DJs who enjoy the classic look, feel and performance of vinyl for music playback. The PLX-1000 features a high-torque direct-drive mechanism and exceptional audio playback quality. Modern digital DJs will appreciate the compatibility with current Digital Vinyl System while vinyl enthusiasts will appreciate the tried-and-true design and familiar layout. Everyone will appreciate its proven performance and professional build quality that stands up to the most demanding conditions.

USER-FRIENDLY CONTROL LAYOUT
The PLX-1000 provides a classic, user-friendly layout familiar to top DJs all over the world, providing quick tempo control on the right side of the player, a start/stop button on the left side, a lighted speed guide on the platter and a pop-up LED target light.

HIGH-TORQUE DIRECT DRIVE SYSTEM
Whether you're beat juggling or beat matching, the PLX-1000's high-torque direct-drive mechanism delivers the power and precision you need to stay on point. 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 is 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. Detachable cables also means lower maintenance in the long run.

FEATURES
User-friendly control layout
High-torque direct drive system

Comments about Pioneer PLX-1000 Professional Turntable:

Extremely high quality 'table with great feature set. Easily compares with top turntable brands without compromise costing many times more. Detachable cables allow you to upgrade to high end cables for audio, power and ground connections if desired, as I did. Great sound with a high end cartridge, easy set up and rock solid speed control. I am using an Ortofon 2M Black cartridge and sound is wonderful. DJ and studio use features, but can work in a high end audio system

      I was amazed by the audio output and durable design from this turntable. Doesn't come with a needle cartridge, however high grade RCA audio cables are included.

          Comments about Pioneer PLX-1000 Professional Turntable:

          The dust cover has to be removed evey time to play a record. This player is as good if not better than the 1200mk2 and if caught on sale for under 600 it is a no Brainer. I thought the tone arm material was a gimmick until I noticed better isolation than the mk2. The specs have been rated better than what Pioneer has rated it. The motor starts and stops on a dime and with just a orfoton 2 red this table is a winner at less than a quarter of the price of the new 1200 series table. The idea of using side mount cables and ac plug is a real nice quality. The included cables are suficiant for home use but I recommend a cable upgrade to really enjoy this table.

            Comments about Pioneer PLX-1000 Professional Turntable:

            I was weary but with the discout they just ran I saved over 100.us and It's quieter than the Audio tecnica 1200 mk5 and side by side it's a better platter and it's coated well and the adjustable feet are a plus. This unit Is for home use only and blows away anything under 5k. The only thing is it could use a better mat.
