Overview

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.

    Comments about Pioneer PLX-1000 Professional Turntable:

    Am not a DJ so can't comment about that. However, the PLX 1000 delivers EXCELLENT sound quality in my home system. Spot on quartz lock platter speed control with inaudible wow and flutter insures consistent and reliable playback. No built in pre-amp also means no signal degradation. Great all around direct drive home use table.

      Comments about Pioneer PLX-1000 Professional Turntable:

      This turntable is awesome, very highly recommend. I am a home listener and have had several belt drive tables from the big companies many are familiar with and supposedly entry level audiophile, and none compare to this table. Build quality is outstanding, definition is far beyond any entry or mid level belt drive table. Speed is dead on, having had a belt drive with speed control this is in a different league, superior without a doubt. I have this paired with a Grado wood cartridge and could not be a happier. If you love vinyl do yourself a favor and buy this table, you will not be disappointed!

        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

        Awesome Professional Turntable

        Comments about Pioneer PLX-1000 Professional Turntable:

        As someone new to the art of DJ'ing and Turntablism I am taking classes at a school ran by professional DJ's. Of course they use Technics to learn and practice on. They also have a couple models of Stantons, in which nobody wants to be 'stuck on'. The Stantons just don't seem to perform as well or feel just right. (Admittedly I think as students we just aren't skilled enough to adapt to the different feel.) After trying the Pioneer PLX-1000's at a local Guitar Center, I instantly knew they were an accurate replacement for the Technics. Two weeks later I am really loving having my own professional_ turntables. I have even bought some used vinyl. I see why this hobby is so addicting. I am going to sell the DJ controller I had because without moving platters, it don't allow me to perform the tricks that I have learned on the turntables.

        Awesome Turntable

        Comments about Pioneer PLX-1000 Professional Turntable:

        I purchased this turntable about a week ago from the Canton, MI store. It is replacing my 40 year old Pioneer PL-530 that finally died after many years and hours of musical enjoyment. I am using in my home listening room with a high end stereo system to play an extensive vinyl collection. Awesome build, quality, and performance. I like the RCA connections it has that allow me to use true audiophile cables instead of attached cables that are usually of poor quality. It did come with a Shure cartridge. I did try this out but the sound (to me anyway) was not natural. I replaced it with a upper end audiophile cartridge which made a huge difference. I highly recommend this turntable. It should give many years of listening enjoyment, as my last Pioneer lasted 40 years .

          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.

          A Legend Awakened

          By Philip

          from Torrance Ca

          Comments about Pioneer PLX-1000 Professional Turntable:

          Went into the Lawndale store where James gave me exceptional customers service (give him a raise), and a good bargain for 2 of these. I tried them out and I was impressed by the feel and the nature of these decks, including the black finish and blue light accents. I know that Technics had a major role in these new turntables, but right now i'm already enjoying doing mixes and scratching on these. It feels like being home again, just with a little extra excitement. Once again,kudos to all the staff, and to James for letting me rock these turntables!
