Attention non-DJ vinyl lovers: Pioneer has announced the upcoming release of its PLX-100, a direct-drive turntable geared toward aficionados such as yourself. Available in September in black and white, the PLX-500 lets you plug the deck directly into your existing sound system or powered speakers without an external amplifier.
Drawing on our heritage in making high-quality decks, the PLX-500 inherits the layout of the PLX-1000 professional turntable and produces warm, clear analogue sound. The high-torque deck is ideal for scratching and comes with everything you need including a cartridge, stylus and slipmat, and its USB out means you can easily make high-quality digital recordings of your vinyl collection in our free rekordbox software. You can use the PLX-500 and the rekordbox dvs Plus Pack to play and scratch digital files when you combine them with a compatible DJM mixer and the RB-VS1-K Control Vinyl. And you can choose between the black (PLX-500-K) and white (PLX-500-W) versions to match your set-up or the design of your home.
The PLX-500-K and PLX-500-W will retail at a MSRP of €349 including VAT (or US $349).
