Pioneer PLX-500: High-torque, direct drive turntable (black)
Pioneer products are the stand out products in the DJ'ing community. Renowned for their unrivaled quality and outstanding reliability, Pioneer products have been the number one suppliers of Decks and mixers in clubs and bars for over a decade.
The PLX-500 inherits the layout of the PLX-1000 professional turntable and produces a warm, clear analogue sound. The perfect deck if you want to start playing with vinyl or if you just want to listen to your record collection at home.
Solidly built with excellent vibration damping and precise audio playback, this high-torque deck has a USB out so you can make digital recordings of your vinyl collection in our free rekordbox software. You can also combine the PLX-500 with the rekordbox dvs Plus Pack, a compatible mixer and the RB-VS1-K Control Vinyl to play and scratch with digital files.
Excellent Sound Design
Just like the PLX-1000, the PLX-500 is built to produce a high-quality vinyl sound. The shortest possible audio routing from the stylus to the outputs reduces distortion, while the phone/line output switch lets you connect directly to your sound system or to powered speakers with no need for an external amplifier.
Easy Digital Recording
Record your vinyl collection to high-quality digital files by simply connecting the turntable to your PC or Mac via the USB out.
Smooth DJ Play
Use the PLX-500 to mix and scratch your vinyl records or combine the turntable with rekordbox dvs, a compatible DJ mixer and the RB-VS1-K Control Vinyl to play and perform with your digital files.
Cover Art Display
Put your record covers on display while listening to your vinyl thanks to the sleeve stand inside the dust cover.
Pick your colour
The PLX-500 is available in black or white to match the colour of your gear or the interior of your home. If you're after a white version, give us a ring (02087780422) - we don't keep them in stock, but can order them in for you!
