PLX-1000: Pioneer’s First Step into the Realm of Turntables

Next month, Pioneer is slated to release their first DJ turntable, the PLX-1000. It’s modeled closely after the Technics SL-1200, the industry standard direct-drive turntable. However, Pioneer has modernized the design and technology, allowing for the tempo fader to change from +- 8% to 16% or even 50%. The inputs are fully removable, and they’ve added in premium features like a tempo reset button.pioneer-new-turntable

Take a glimpse at the video below to see the turntable in action:

We teach on turntables! If you haven’t had any experience DJing with turntables and the Pioneer has piqued your interest, head over to our Courses to find a class to get you in the know!
