Description

Building on expertise accumulated over many years as the top international manufacturer of DJ equipment, Pioneer's PLX-1000 makes it possible to enjoy intuitive DJ play without ever losing your way.

Thanks to its high-torque direct drive system, the PLX-1000 provides stable rotation that can withstand use in venues such as clubs, achieving starting torque of at least 4.5kg·cm and reaching the fixed rotation speed within just 0.3 seconds (at 33 1/3 rpm).

Tempo control with variable width selectable from three levels
The variable width of tempo can be selected from ±8%, ±16% and ±50%, and these wide-ranging tempo controls expand the possibilities of DJ play. Also, simply pressing the “RESET” button instantly reverts to the fixed rotation speed at ±0%.

Attachable / detachable power and audio cables
Since the PLX-1000” uses attachable / detachable power and audio cables, there are no cables getting in the way when transporting the turntable, nor is there any risk of impact when moving or disconnection due to cables getting caught. Users can also interchange the cables as they please in order to customize the sound quality.

Features:
  • The body of the player is structured so that cables do not protrude beyond its outer dimensions, taking into account the front-to-back positioning when placing the back of the turntable, with its connection terminals, next to a mixer
  • By using rubber and springs on the dampening parts of the insulator, noise from external vibrations is absorbed and isolated, and stable installation is made possible
  • DJ play has been made smoother by minimizing the operational sound of the START / STOP button
  • A rough surface is applied to the underside of the turntable on the left and right sides in order to ensure stability when carrying

Comments about Pioneer Plx-1000X Direct Drive Professional Dj Turntable:

It may not be a $4000 (2016) Technics 1200 anniversary model, but as an audiophile table for playing your records at home or in a studio, it is probably best you can buy. The screw on head is only now becoming a standard among the audiophile turntables, and the arm will accept most any cartridge made. I think there are many other less expensive models the professional hip-hop DJs should use (torture), but leave this one for playing records. Stereophile rates it a "C" category and the only one under $1500. Do yourself a favor if you wish to trash a scratch table, please don't use this one.

    The PLX 1000x is a great way to bring some vinyl into your set. these are definitely the closest thing to 1200's and just as durable if not more. This would be a great addition to any Live DJ set. This is a real hands on review from Sam Ash Indy.

      This is a top of the line direct-drive turntable built tough for live performance. Features like variable speed and re-set make this ideal for the pro DJ. A great option for those looking to retire their 1200's. This is a hands on review by Jim at Sam Ash Columbus

          Comments about Pioneer Plx-1000X Direct Drive Professional Dj Turntable:

          Pioneer outdid themselves with this one. The PLX-1000 was exactly what the market needed. It fills the void that the 1200's left when they were discontinued extraordinarily well. It is a well built, dependable, professional DJ turntable. If your looking to invest in a pair of stand alone tables the PLX - 1000's are one of the best choices on the market. Two thumbs up, great job Pioneer!

            Comments about Pioneer Plx-1000X Direct Drive Professional Dj Turntable:

            Coming from a DJ background most will tell you that Technics 1200's are the only way to go, not anymore. These turntables are based off the same motor design as the originals with many more features that were not available. Removeable RCA cables, multiple pitch percentage controls, plus more torque than the original.

                Comments about Pioneer Plx-1000X Direct Drive Professional Dj Turntable:

                At first glance, you can see how this turntable was designed with the classic Technics 1200 turntable in mind. The torque of the motor is great, giving an almost instant start when you hit play. One thing I thought was a real improvement over the 1200 was the fact that the RCA and power cables are able to be disconnected, cutting down on excess cable tangles during setup and teardown. The rubber padding on the bottom is great for dampening and isolation from loud bass frequencies and virtually eliminates sliding. And having the extended pitch control of +/- 50% is great for mixing records that have a large tempo spread.
