Pioneer Turntable PLX-1000 Turntable Video Demo

Pioneer officially unveiled it’s first contribution to the professional turntable / DJ industry with its latest product, the PLX-1000.  After the grand buzz of its debut at Musikmesse a few months ago, audiophiles and gear nerds have scrutinized every aspect of its prototype (or at least whatever videos and photos we could dig up from the Innanets), comparing it to the iconic Technics 1200 series.

As the introductory demo video below, featuring scratch masters DJ Qbert and DJ Shortkut, reveals, the PLX-1000 is aesthetically similar to the Technics 1200, save for Pioneer’s signature round start/stop button and black with blue lights colorway. However, the turntable bears some modern DJ-minded upgraded such as a high-torque direct drive system, a multi-pitch control that goes up to +/- 50%, and detachable power and audio cables (read, no more expensive RCA replacement jobs).

Pioneer also claims that the PLX-1000 has a club-grade build and sound quality, and while there’s no reason to doubt the quality of any Pioneer product, we’ll be interested to see if these babies can withstand the hard, nightly beating of club usage.

Watch the video demo below and pre-order the new Pioneer turntable at your local retailer or Turntable Lab.

The model offers a highly familiar, user-friendly control layout, high-torque direct drive mechanism, and exceptional audio playback quality. Combine the PLX-1000 with a Pioneer professional series DJM mixer for an ideal system for true vinyl enthusiasts.

    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.
