Pioneer DJ PLX-1000 Pro Direct Drive DJ Turntable

With one of the most prolific turntables in the world disappearing from the marketplace years ago, a void was left for DJs and vinyl enthusiasts who demanded the unmatched quality. Fast forward through the years of longing and online price gouging for discontinued turntables and you eventually arrive at the emergence of the Pioneer PLX-1000, the only turntable worthy to pick up the reigns as the de facto performance turntable. With a familiar control layout, high-torque direct drive mechanism, and superb audio playback quality, the PLX-1000 is in a class of its own. Don't sweat the technique.

User-friendly control layout
All DJs, new and old, will love the user friendly layout of the PLX-1000: start/stop button on the left side, quick tempo control capability on the right side, and a high-torque platter with a lighted speed guide as the centerpiece.

High-torque direct drive system
Experience exceptional control and rotation stability thanks to the PLX-1000's direct drive mechanism, achieve a starting torque of at least 4.5kg/cm and able to reach its fixed rotation speed within 0.3 seconds (at 33 1/3 rpm).

Sound quality design
You need a turntable that can withstand the rigors of use, and with the PLX-1000, that is exactly what you get. A heavy-mass zinc die-cast chassis on top, reinforced with 8-mm thick resin and 9-mm thick vibration dampening material all contribute to an incredibly stable piece of machinery for uninterrupted playback. The same attention to build quality and performance was paid to the tone arm, which uses rubber insulation to minimize any difficulties during playback. Even the RCA jacks feature gold-plated machine-cut parts for low impedance!

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.

Solid turntable
Pros: Excellent Sound,Easy To Use
Cons: Limited Features

Having had Technics, 1200, 1210s, mk2, mk3, mk5...

These Pioneers are definitely a fair replacement.

They feel very similar to Technics, better than the Numark TTs
and the Stanton's my friend had.

No issues with them, they are exactly what they look like.

Platter feel is solid, very familiar. Pure utility, they do exactly what they should.

Haven't done the complete sound quality analysis or side by side

Couple of side notes, Adjusted stylus overhang to 54mm,
set the anti-skate to same as gram weight, and put height at
3.5. This setup has really nice results with tracking.

Loving The Pioneer PLX1000
These turntables handle everything a scratch DJ can throw at them. Hands down best out there. Pioneer came through again.

It's not even close to the King
I bought this turntable because it looks in many ways just like an SL1200....and that is where it ends. The tone arm assembly, gimbal bearing was way too loose from the start, the counterweight provided is 94 grams compared to the 99 grams of an SL1200, that's a HUGE weight difference and because of that I was not able to properly balance the tone arm for tracking. The feedback was horrendous as well, it's not a very well constructed and dampened unit. Good luck riding the pitch, as it's not accurate and will not hold for long mixes. Overall, you are paying for a name and that's it. This is a Super OEM Hanpin deck with minimal features compared to Reloop, Mixars, Audio Technica lp 1240, and even Stanon's new deck. DO NOT waste your money on this deck, you'll only have heartbreak and send it back like I did.

Great product at a great price
Performs flawlessly as all other pioneer gear I’ve ever owned. Now my set up is relatively complete with the interface 2, 2 cdj-2000s, 2 plx-1000s and my trusty djm-900. I wouldn’t hesitate the buy more pioneer gear!
