Pioneer PLX-500 Direct Drive Turntable

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.

Included Accessories:
- Slip mat
- Dust cover with jacket stand
- Adapter for 45 EP records
- Head shell (with cartridge)
- Balance and shell weights
- Audio conversion cord:
- 1 Stereo pin plug (female)

Unless you are a world class turntablist you will have no problem DJing with this unit. The motor on the 500 is slightly weaker than the big brother PLX1000 but for normal mixing and scratching you will be fine. I use butter rugs and I'm not heavy handed either. So to each his/her own but i would rate these a strong 7.5 out of 10. The PLX 1000 a 9 and the 1200 of course a perfect 10. I use serato as well as REAL vinyl. Hope this helps someone
