Pioneer PLX-1000 DJ Turntable

Thought I'd throw this up. We new something was coming...



As expected, its a Technics copy cat and from a business end its a good idea. They'll become a drop in replacement for most venues as many 1200s haven't been maintained but for a street price of around $800 US I can't see people buying them over a used set of Technics decks (even though they've gone up in price). However, with the marketing machine that Pioneer is who knows.

Will they be as bullet-proof as the 1200s?

the marketing of it is ridiculous <<some next generation improvements, including a high-torque direct drive system, multi-pitch control, club-grade build and sound quality, and detachable power and audio cables. >>
wooow detachable cables mmmm... next generation indeed...

i would expect something revolutionary packed with feature like the reloop 8000, or at least have a line output..

But the price of technics is off the roof now, and i would prefer to buy something new so i am thinking of buying one of these..

The wow & flutter doesn't seem any better than the Super OEMs, though it could be a conservative measurement. DSP controlled stuff has come quite a long way in contrast to the older analog systems. Is it even a linear drive motor or a pulse one? A pitch bend joystick would be nice like on the Vestax. I'd also like to know how shielded the power supply and motors are from causing EMI/RFI with certain cartridges. Also, the tone arm mass or appropriate compliance tip to match with it would be useful info. If they're going to charge that much money, Pioneer should be throwing in special vibration-reducing feet, external power supplies, and some new cartridges.

It is nice to see they included a tracking error spec, though. I never could get Numark to do the test on theirs.
