Thanks to its high-torque direct drive system, the 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).

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.

  • The body of the player is structured so that cables do not protrude beyond its outer dimensions, taking into account the front-to-back positioning when placing the back of the turntable, with its connection terminals, next to a mixer
  • By using rubber and springs on the dampening parts of the insulator, noise from external vibrations is absorbed and isolated, and stable installation is made possible
  • DJ play has been made smoother by minimizing the operational sound of the START / STOP button
  • A rough surface is applied to the underside of the turntable on the left and right sides in order to ensure stability when carrying

Perfect turntable!


Great sound for a good price! Use as a record player for all of my records.



Yes I would


It's a good product strong built quality that will last a very long time I love it



Solid turntable! I'm super happy with my purchase.


The PLX-1000 Feels like my old Technics 1200 MK2. Perfect for scratching and playing my old vinyl. This turntable is just solid.



Love the sound


I love the sound this turntable. I like that there is nothing in the signal path (I.e. internal pre-amp or usb). The only thing is I got a hum on certain cartridges. I believe this unit could be $100 cheaper then I'd say it's all the way worth it. If you're really technical you'll notice things are not perfect but it works well and sounds good.






Pioneer is the leader in the Dj world and the turntable exemplifies why. Excellent torque and a truly pro feel. Excellent for cutting and scratching, or just putting on your favorite vinyl.




Best audiophile turntable with professional capabiiity


It may not be a $4000 (2016) Technics 1200 anniversary model, but as an audiophile table for playing your records at home or in a studio, it is probably best you can buy. The screw on head is only now becoming a standard among the audiophile turntables, and the arm will accept most any cartridge made. I think there are many other less expensive models the professional hip-hop DJs should use (torture), but leave this one for playing records. Stereophile rates it a "C" category and the only one under $1500. Do yourself a favor if you wish to trash a scratch table, please don't use this one.

The PLX 1000x is a great way to bring some vinyl into your set. these are definitely the closest thing to 1200's and just as durable if not more. This would be a great addition to any Live DJ set. This is a real hands on review from Sam Ash Indy.




Top Of The Line


This is a top of the line direct-drive turntable built tough for live performance. Features like variable speed and re-set make this ideal for the pro DJ. A great option for those looking to retire their 1200's. This is a hands on review by Jim at Sam Ash Columbus

Smooth vinyl


What a great smooth turntable. Excellent traction and superior construction. A real pro tool for any vinyl dj gig. Also a real upgrade to any home stereo system. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.






Pioneer outdid themselves with this one. The PLX-1000 was exactly what the market needed. It fills the void that the 1200's left when they were discontinued extraordinarily well. It is a well built, dependable, professional DJ turntable. If your looking to invest in a pair of stand alone tables the PLX - 1000's are one of the best choices on the market. Two thumbs up, great job Pioneer! ( This is a hands on product review from Austin at Sam Ash Cleveland )
