Pioneer PLX-500 Direct Drive Turntable

Pioneer DJSKU: 002803

Sale price£349.99


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 Pioneer DJ's free rekordbox software. You can also combine the PLX-500 with the rekordbox dvs Plus Pack, a compatible mixer and the RC-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.
  • Pick your colour:  The PLX-500 is available in black or white to match the colour of your gear or the interior of your home.
  • Start from scratch:  This turntable comes with all the accessories you need to get started: a dust cover with jacket stand, a slipmat and a silver edition PC-HS01-S headshell (cartridge and stylus included).
  • rekordbox dvs:  When you use our rekordbox dj DJ software, you can buy the rekordbox dvs Plus Pack to get low latency scratch control with music from your rekordbox library.
