Pioneer DJ PLX-500 overview

  • 1Description

The white Pioneer PLX-500 is a high-quality, direct-drive turntable with a high-torque motor system that's designed for personal listening and live performance applications such as DJing at a party or in a club. The turntable utilizes a classic layout that DJs are familiar with, including tempo control, a start/stop button, and a lighted speed guide. The high-torque motor is capable of at least 1.6 kg/cm of torque and can reach a rotational speed of 33-1/3 rpm in one second or less. A tempo adjustment of ±8%, allows you to beat-match two tracks for seamless track transitions.

The turntable is built to reproduce high-quality sound and utilizes the shortest possible audio routing, from the stylus to the outputs, to reduce distortion. A phono/line switch provides flexible connections to a DJ mixer, directly to a sound system, or to powered speakers without the need for a turntable preamp. Additionally, the Pioneer PLX-500 offers a USB port for high-quality digital recordings to your Mac or PC.

The universal type S-shape tone arm offers a gimbal-supported bearing structure and a static balance type. The Pioneer PLX-500 ships with a headshell (cartridge & stylus included), a slip mat, a dust cover, a balance weight, a shell weight, an adapter for EP records, a power cord, a USB Cable, and an audio adapter cable.

Professional Sound Design

    Pioneer DJ PLX-500 reviews

    PLX-500-W High-Torque, Direct-Drive Turntable (White) is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Motor Stopped One Month into Owning Beautiful piece of mid-weight garbage. Everything worked as expected for one month. Then the platter stopped spinning. I have contacted Pioneer and B&H to return, no fault of B&H, but beware - after a quick google motor issue is common with this model. Bummer cause it is of nice quality otherwise and fair price.
