"I'm in a confused relationship"

I have been using these wheels for about 2 days now and I can say that I feel like a married man who is cheating on his wife with a younger, prettier woman. I have been my wife for about 30 years (1200's). I have done it all from battling, to travelling parties, to getting busy on many stages throughout the years. She has made me happy. In comes the new girl (PLX-1000). Her name isn't as catchy but I have nicknamed her the (PG's). She is prettier to look at. Her motor is stronger, she has a counterweight for heavy handed guys like me. I like the way they sit pretty on my table right next to the mixer with perfect height. The anti-skate and arm lifts all have a quality feel. The pitch reset are quite precise and the different options of pitch control work well. The pitch control slider feels beautiful in the hands. I must say that I am in love all over again. The feeling of unboxing the next great turntable was a great experience. Everything came neatly packaged and ready to go. I like the headshell for the cartridge and the fact that it has a detachable weight. Something small but effective - The on and off switch is recessed so you don't accidently bump it and turn off the turntable. That was an issue that I had in my teen years of battling and doing tricks but it also gave me a skill set that I am glad to have learned. I have 3 sets of 1200's in my lab and I will always love them and I will never divorce her. I just feel that as our lives have progressed, I need a new chick on the side to do some things with. My P-G's are the new thing in my life and my Serato Rane Mixer loves them. I have set up my 1200's and mixer next to my old school crates for my analog setup. I actually threw some vinyl on the P-G's and low and behold, they are great with the counter weights as well. I am keeping my double set-up as it is, but yes, they move vinyl as well, if not better due to the motor strength and pitch speed adjustments. Overall, welcome back Turntablism!
My circles in Serato are perfectly round and the vinyl records sound great with my Shures.
A 1200 with a stronger motor and the little things that matter.
Ease of Use
They are pure turntables, the music and sounds require you to do the work.
It feels like I will have these for years to come.
I think they priced it well.
I have yet to have any issues but I would think Pioneer would be on point with support.
The Wow Factor
When my boys asked me are those 1210's and I said no, they are the new pioneer joints, they said, "WOOOW" those are dope fam. So that's a pretty good wow factor.
