Born again: Meet the Pioneer PLX-1000 high-torque direct-drive professional DJ turntable.
Pioneer PLX-1000 High-Torque Direct-Drive Professional Turntable Pioneer is marking 20 years in the DJ industry with the launch of a modern classic: the PLX-1000 professional turntable. The Pioneer PLX-1000 is precision engineered for the booth, drawing on 50 years experience of making high-end turntables. The result is a familiar layout with some next-generation improvements, including a high-torque direct drive system, multi-pitch control, club-grade build and sound quality, and detachable power and audio cables.
High-torque direct drive system
Thanks to its high-torque direct drive system, the “Pioneer PLX-1000” provides stable rotation that can withstand use in venues such as clubs, achieving starting torque of at least 4.5kg·cm and reaching the fixed rotation speed within just 0.3 seconds (at 33 1/3 rpm).
*1 Torque: The strength of rotational force acting around a fixed axis of revolution.
*2 A system that directly connects the motor and turntable. Directly conveying the motor’s rotational force to the driver ensures that loss is minimized and enables highly efficient energy transfer.
Excellent sound quality design gets the most from the sound quality of analog vinyl
Tempo control with variable width selectable from three levels
The variable width of tempo can be selected from ±8%, ±16% and ±50%, and these wide-ranging tempo controls expand the possibilities of DJ play. Also, simply pressing the “RESET” button instantly reverts to the fixed rotation speed at ±0%.
Attachable/detachable power and audio cables
Since the “PLX-1000” uses attachable/detachable power and audio cables, there are no cables getting in the way when transporting the turntable, nor is there any risk of impact when moving or disconnection due to cables getting caught. Users can also interchange the cables as they please in order to customize the sound quality.
