Pioneer PLX-1000 direct drive analog turntable for DJs of the past and present
Pioneer DJ quality PLX-1000 direct drive analog turntable is designed for DJs who enjoy the look, feel, and performance of vinyl for music playback. The model offers a highly familiar, user-friendly control layout, high-torque direct drive mechanism, and exceptional audio playback quality. 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 4.5 kg- cm and can reach its fixed rotation speed within 0.3 seconds (at 33 1/3 rpm).
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 is enforced with 9-mm thick vibration-damping material that results in extremely stable playback. The RCA jacks feature gold-plated machine-cut parts for low impedance for excellent sound quality output.
The Pioneer DJ quality PLX-1000 direct drive analog turntable 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. The PLX-1000 can be combined with Pioneer’s professional series DJM mixer for building the ideal system for true vinyl enthusiasts. The Pioneer PLX-1000 professional analog turntable will be available in August with a suggested retail price of $849.
