User-friendly Control Layout
The PLX-1000 provides a user friendly layout familiar to top DJs of the past and present, providing quick tempo control capability on the right side of the player, start/stop button on the left side, and a high-torque platter with a lighted speed guide

High-Torque Direct Drive System
The direct drive mechanism of the PLX-1000 provides high-torque resulting in stable rotation and exceptional control. 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 was 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. Users are also able to interchange cables to further customize the sound quality.

Overall Rating
Just as good, maybe even better than 1200's!
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Yep, that's right! I said these tables are just as good, maybe even better than 1200's. I have owned several sets of Technics 1200's in the past and decided to go looking for another set to get back into my vinyl. The used 1200 market is insane on prices they are demanding for used tables. I decided why buy somebody's used tables when I can own new for the same or even less. Enter the Pioneer PLX-1000. The torque is amazing. Startup is dead on and slur is non existent. The blue lights were a nice touch and look awesome in the dark. The ability to go +8, +16, +50 on the tempo is very handy. Being able to detach the power cord is also nice feature. I had extra Monster RCA's laying around so being able to switch these out was also a plus with the detachable cables. The tone arm feels a tad off. Almost a little too hollow however the sound is perfect. I would say even good enough for an audiophile! It's Pioneer so I trust it will last forever. Get a pair!
