Quick Find
Drawing inspiration from the classic Technics 1210 series, the Pioneer PLX-1000 is of a very similar design and build quality, and very heavy.

The main differences are that they have a pitch range of up to + 50, a high torque which ensures the vinyl reaches its correct speed as soon as its released from your hand (0.3 seconds) or when pressing play. Also the leads at the back are interchangable, rather than fixed.

The PLX-1000 is precision engineered for the booth, drawing on 50 years experience of making high-end turntables. This high-torque direct drive turntable is equipped with a classic layout and a rubber-lined, S-shaped tone arm that improves isolation and prevents feedback. It is solidly built for excellent vibration damping and ultra-precise, high grade audio playback.

Featuring next generation improvements, the PLX-1000 is the perfect score for professional DJs and vinyl enthusiasts. Combine this turntable with your Pioneer DJM mixer and get the ideal DJ system set-up.

Turn the tables

The high-torque direct drive makes sure that your tracks reach a rotation speed of 33⅓ rpm in merely 0.3 seconds thanks to a starting torque of 4.5kg/cm (or more). On top of that it ensures stable rotation and exceptional control.

Easily connected

For low impendance and amazing sound quality output, you can easily connect to the professional-grade, gold-plated RCA jacks. Ideal for a DJ on the road, the PLX-1000 has interchangeble power and audio cables

Pick up the pace

Unique to this turntable is the multi-pitch tempo control. Next to a standard variable width of + 8%, you can also select a variable width from +16% and +50%. A simple reset button instantly reverts to the fixed rotation speed at +0%.
