Pioneer DJ PLX-1000 Overview
The Pioneer PLX-1000 - Professional Turntable is designed for personal listening and live performance applications such as DJing at a party or in a club. The table utilizes a high-torque direct drive motor and a classic layout that DJs are familiar with, including tempo control, a start/stop button, and a lighted speed guide. The high-torque motor is capable of at least 4.5 kg/cm of torque and can reach a rotational speed of 33 1/3 rpm in 0.3 seconds.
The turntable is built with a heavy-mass zinc die-cast chassis with a reinforced bottom made of 8mm thick resin. The unit's base is reinforced with a 9mm thick vibration dampening material for stable playback. The tonearm uses rubber insulation to minimize howling effects, and the RCA jacks are gold-plated for lower impedance signals and improved sound quality. For convenience and durability the turntable features detachable power and RCA audio cables to prevent turntable failure as a result of cable failure. An integrated Kensington lock allows you to secure the turntable to the DJ booth.
The turntable allows for tempo adjustments of ±8%, ±16%, and ±50%, with a reset button for instant ±0% fixed rotation speed. It comes with a turntable sheet, a slip mat, a dust cover, a head shell, a balance weight, a sub weight, a shell weight, an adapter for EP records, a power cord, a stereo RCA audio cable, and a ground wire.
