The little brother to Pioneer's PLX-1000 DJ turntable, the Pioneer PLX-500 brings hi-fi quality vinyl audio to your sound system, and can be used to DJ also.

An Affordable Pioneer DJ Turntable with Precise Playback!
The Pioneer PLX-500 Direct Drive Turntable is a vinyl player that's as easy on your pocket as it is on your ears. Borrowing the same design and layout as its big brother, the Pioneer PLX-1000 turntable, the affordable PLX-500 is like a mid-level turntable at an entry-level price.

An Affordable Solution for DJs and Music Lovers
The PLX-500 turntable is an affordable vinyl solution for record enthusiasts and DJs alike. Whether you're an audiophile keen to listen to your favorite music in the highest-quality format available, or you're a DJ looking for an affordable and portable way to throw down an old-school all-vinyl set, the PLX-500 has you covered with Pioneer's trustworthy construction and a timeless design.

Direct-Drive Performance
Audiophiles who care how their music sounds will appreciate the precision of the PLX-500s direct-drive system. With cheaper belt-driven turntables, belts tend to stretch and warp over time, resulting in inconsistent pitch and playback speed. With a direct-drive system, like the one used in the PLX-500, playback will be spot-on, providing pitch and speed accurate playback album after album.

USB Output: Digitize Your Playback
For those interested in maintaining both analog and digital music libraries, the PLX-500 features a rear-mounted USB port for digitizing the turntable's output. This makes it easy to backup a digital copy of your vinyl collection, as well as allowing turntablists to record their performance, scratch for scratch. Convert your favorite LPs to digital, or create your own samples and loops -- USB output makes it easy!
