Introducing the Pioneer PLX-500 Direct Drive DJ Turntable, the new premium-quality turntable that delivers the pristine quality you expect from vinyl.

PLX-500 Overview

The PLX-500 inherits the same precision build quality of the older PLX-1000 model and offers superior analogue quality. You can now digitise you beloved vinyl collection in high-quality WAV format, not only that, it is simple and easy. Not only that, rekordbox detects silence between tracks and creates a separate file so you can record a whole album without resetting your recording.

In addition, you can combine this with the rekordbox DVS plus pack to perform with digital files (must be used with the RB-VS1 Control Vinyl and a compatible DJM mixer).
