Pioneer - PLX-1000 Turntable

The Direct-Drive Deejay Turntable Taking Audiophiles by Storm: Pioneer PLX-1000 Boasts High-Torque Motor and Rock-Solid Stability, Plays With Expressive, Exciting, Detailed, and Clear Sound

An Audiophile-Approved Analog Machine Disguised as a DJ 'Table - Music Direct Can Mount the Cartridge of Your Choice on the Pioneer PLX-1000 'Table

A traditional deejay turntable any audiophile can love, the direct-drive Pioneer PLX-1000 places a premium on analog performance. Boasting considerable mass (it weighs nearly 30 pounds), a high-torque motor, an LED for in-the-dark track cueing, and tempo fader control, the Stereophile Recommended Component plays music with shocking clarity, tonal accuracy, and ravishing detail. Seriously, you will be in awe of the expressiveness and excitement PLX-1000 brings to every LP you place on its platter. More than worthy of its famed heritage – PLX-1000is the descendant of the legendary Technics SL-1200MK2 – this upgraded design's heavy-duty motor boasts twice the torque (and control) of its predecessor. A worthy alternative to any sub-$1k belt-driven design that Stereophilecalls a "contender for the best audiophile-grade turntable for less than $2,000," PLX-1000 is 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.

"Pioneer's new PLX-1000 is not only a worthy successor to the legendary Technics SL-1200MK2, it is a serious contender for the best audiophile-grade turntable for less than $2000. Unabashedly recommended."
– Herb Reichart, Stereophile, Recommended Component

Rock-Solid Build Quality for Optimal Performance
To create an extremely stable player and prevent vibration, Pioneer utilizes a heavy-mass zinc die-cast chassis for the top section that's reinforced with a bottom section made of 8mm-thick resin. The base is further enforced with 9mm-thick vibration-damping material that results in extremely stable playback. The tonearm received great attention in build quality and design to maximize performance. PLX-1000's RCA jacks feature gold-plated machine-cut parts for low impedance for excellent sound quality.

Exceptional Stability and Control from a High-Torque Direct Drive System
The direct-drive mechanism of PLX-1000 provides tremendous 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 33.3RPM).

User-Friendly Layout and Controls Include Lighted Speed Guide
PLX-1000 provides a user-friendly layout to serious listeners and DJs alike. Music lovers will find quick tempo control capability on the right side and a start/stop button on the left side, as well as a high-torque platter with a lighted speed guide so you can cue up LPs in the dark without problem. PLX-1000 also provides a range of tempo adjustments from ±8% and ±16% to ±50%, giving users a range of pitch speeds. A "reset" button for tempo sits next to the tempo slider for instant ±0% fixed rotation speed.

We take great care in packaging our products to ensure that they arrive safely at your shipping destination. However, sometimes packages get damaged in transit to you. Please inspect your package when you receive it. Immediately notify the delivery person of any damage to the exterior of the carton.

Please contact us at 1-800-449-8333 and inform us of the damage. Once the damage claim is filed we will be able to repair or replace the damaged item at no cost to you.
What to do if you have a Defective Product:
If you have problems with a product once you receive it, please contact our customer service or sales departments for assistance. They will work with you and try to troubleshoot the problem. Most often defective products really aren't defective, but are simply not being used properly.

We ask for your patience when waiting for a return to be processed. All returns must be accompanied by the original product box, instructions, warranty info, packing materials, etc.
