    • High-torque direct drive system
    • Designed for optimal sound quality

    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.

    It is perfect
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    For anybody even thinking about coming to vinyl this is the way to go. If you are a controller owner like i am and have used anything similar to the ns7 this is just about the same thing but better and cooler. It’s user friendly ad easy to learn to play on

    Great unit. Well worth the price.
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I would have given 5 stars as I think that it's worth it. The only thing I wish pioneer would add to the package are the screws for the headshell. I had to buy a screw kit for it. And a better alignment tool for installing the cartridge on the headshell. The one in the manual sucks. Other then that it is a great turntable. Love it.

    Not bad but not a 1200
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Decent product for the price but not quite in the same league as 1200's. I expected a little better quality from pioneer. Tone arm set up and other parts of turntable just look and feel cheap. Can tell it's straight out of a China factory but what isn't theese days :(
