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!
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.
