Pioneer DJ PLX-1000 at a glance

The PLX-1000 is a masterfully built piece of precision technology for professional DJs, developed based on 50 years of experience in designing high-quality turntables. This direct-drive, high-torque turntable offers a classically functional layout of its controls and features a rubberized, S-shaped tonearm for maximum isolation and minimal feedback. Its solid construction ensures excellent vibration dampening and ultra-precise audio reproduction with the best sound quality. Equipped with next-generation innovations, the Pioneer DJ PLX-1000 is the perfect tool for professional DJs and vinyl enthusiasts.

Drive system

Thanks to the high initial torque of at least 4.5 kg/cm, the direct drive accelerates to 33 1/3 revolutions per minute in lightning-fast 0.3 seconds. This also guarantees the lowest synchronization fluctuations of 0.1% or less and the most precise control. Regardless of which genre is being served, these are optimal conditions for professional vinyl handling. With knowledge of such quality and reliability, nothing stands in the way of smooth performance.

Power, Start & Stop and speed change

In the left corner of the vinyl player, the power switch, the start/stop button and two speed change buttons are available. When the unit is turned on, the blue strobe light on the side illuminates. It creates the Pioneer DJ PLX-1000's strobe pattern and is used for pitch detection. Pressing the Start/Stop button starts or stops rotation of the turntable. The speed change buttons (33/45) change the speed according to the record being played.

Pioneer PLX-1000 / Tonarm


The tonearm of the Pioneer DJ PLX-1000 has an S-shaped structure and can be ideally adjusted for perfect playback. For example, since the weight of the cartridge and cartridge head differs depending on the product, the balance of the tonearm can be adjusted. For scratch playback, the anti-skating adjustment is a very useful feature. The scale position is adjusted to match the playback process, preventing needle jumps. Needle jumps and sound distortion are additionally prevented with the ability to adjust the needle pressure. The parallel alignment of the tone arm to the record allows the arm height to be adjusted. For every application the PLX-1000 provides a solution!

On the right side of the PLX-1000 are the tempo control functions with a uniquely sophisticated speed control: in addition to the standard deviation of ±8%, deviations of ±16% and ±50% can also be set. A simple press of the reset button restores the original deviation of ±0%.

With the EP adapter you can play standard EPs! You simply put the adapter on the middle spindle and bring the small 7 inch records to life.

Pioneer PLX-1000 / Nadelbeleuchtung
Needle illumination

Apart from that, the high-torque turntable comes with a needle light and dedicated switch, as shown in the picture below right. After pressing the switch, the needle illumination glows in white and extends to the illumination position of the needle tip, e.g. to make it easier to see the position of the needle in darker environments. If this is not desired, press the needle illumination to lower it and the needle illumination switch goes off.

PLX-1000 / Rear

A look at the rear of the Pioneer DJ PLX-1000 provides information about its connections, among other things. The turntable's professional, gold-plated RCA connectors are striking. They offer a low contact resistance and thus increase the sound quality. Right next to it is the signal GND socket for connecting the ground cable. Power is supplied to the PLX-1000 via a 3-pin power plug. Advantageous is the fact that there are no cables in the way when moving the PLX-1000, which additionally prevents connection problems. The cables for the power supply, audio connection and the ground cable are included. Stability is provided by the base on which the turntable stands. These also act as dampers, which reduce external vibrations. Furthermore, the height of the turntable can be adjusted by turning the dampers. Last but not least, the Kensington anti-theft device deserves a mention, because who would want to accept the loss of this gem.
