Pioneer PLX-1000 Turntable Review

The Pioneer PLX-1000 digital recorders are probably the most well-known hi fi review products on the market today. They’ve been reviewed by professional record label employees and DJs as well as amateur music lovers alike. The reviews generally indicate two things. The first is that they are a great piece of home audio equipment that can make all your recorded media available to you wherever you are. The second is that they are not a cheap imitation of expensive hi fi gear and will cost a good amount of money.

The Pioneer PLX-1000 turntable is precision engineered specifically for the stand, pulling down many years of experience from the pros in the turntable industry. What this means for you is that it has been designed for durability, reliability, and functionality. The result is a straightforward, familiar design with some very modern additions, such as a high torque direct drive system, a pre-biased tonearm for maximum performance, enhanced sound quality to interchange feet for different DJ styles, and variable, detachable audio cable. It is solidly constructed for top performance and ultra-high vibration damping. It is also lightweight, so it is easy to move around if you are a professional or just looking to put together a basic setup at home.

The Pioneer PLX-1000 tonearm is fitted with two rubber pads as well as two rubber feet to provide maximum grip and support. The tonearm features a fully magnetic control that prevents errors from being made when the unit is moved. It also features a ball bearing construction for unequally sized components for maximum strength and compatibility. One of the biggest draws of this particular model is its ability to be used with the optional Digital Vinyl Technology (DTVT), which allows for a more diverse sonic palette.

The Pioneer’s high torque direct drive turntable also features a built-in phaser that helps sculpt sounds for all types of dance music. For those who are new to stomping ground beats or breaking up a block party, the PLX-1000 high-torque tonearm with phaser is perfect for beginners or advanced enthusiasts. For those who want to add a bit of spice to their collection of vinyl records, the Pioneer’s player is also compatible with a wide range of phonographic equipment. The unit also comes with two rubber pads for feet and a built-in record lock.

The tonearm’s rubber pad can be used for scratching, but the unit also includes an audio EQ control along with a lock function for eliminating unwanted feedback. Additionally, the controls on the front panel are easy to use and work flawlessly with the included software. A high and low level reverb setting is also available in this vinyl record player, allowing users to add another layer of depth to their music.

Some people found that the Pioneer’s audio quality dipped a little while using the PLX-1000. However, this problem was addressed through manual adjustment of the frequency response control. Another major problem that some people found with this record player is its inability to read the metadata of CD’s that are imported into it. Music that does not have any known masters placed on the disc is often unrecognizable when played from a CD. Although this may not pose a major problem for most people, those who are serious collectors of vinyl records should take this limitation into consideration. Overall, this record player received good reviews by consumers, but some of its shortcomings can be considered as flaws.
