PRO DJ High Torque S-Tonearm Direct Drive Turntable

A REBORN CLASSIC: The Pioneer PLX1000 turntable is precision engineered for the booth, drawing on 50 years experience of making high-end turntables. The result is a familiar layout with some next generation improvements, including a high-torque direct drive system, multi-pitch control, club-grade build and sound quality, and detachable power and audio cables. It's solidly built for excellent vibration damping and ultra-precise, high-grade audio playback.

  • Features

    Simply add your choice of cartridge and stylus to the PLX-1000 (not included) and combine with your mixer for an ideal setup for turntablists. An ideal match for DJs is the handmade PC-X10 (sold separately)

    TURN THE TABLES The high-torque direct drive ensures stable rotation and exceptional control and it reaches 33 rpm in just 0.3 seconds thanks to a starting torque of 4.5kg/cm (or more).

    EXCELLENT SOUND DESIGN The PLX-1000's heavy-mass, die-cast zinc chassis prevents resonance and vibrations. The lower part of the unit is reinforced with 8mm-thick resin, plus 9mm-thick, vibration-damping material at the base. Plus the rubber-insulated tone arm reduces howling effects, while rubber and springs on the dampening parts of the insulator absorb external vibrations.

    PICK UP THE PACE Multi-tempo control lets you instantly pick up or slow down the track to 8%, 16% and 50%, while a simple reset button instantly reverts to 0%.

    FLEXIBLE CONNECTIVITY Interchangeable power and audio cables can be easily connected and replaced, and pro-grade gold-plated RCA jacks ensure low impedance and an amazing sound quality.
