    User-friendly control layout

    High-torque*1 direct drive system*2

    Thanks to its high-torque direct drive system, the “PLX-1000” provides stable rotation that can withstand use in venues such as clubs, achieving starting torque of at least 4.5kg·cm and reaching the fixed rotation speed within just 0.3 seconds (at 33 1/3 rpm).*1 Torque: The strength of rotational force acting around a fixed axis of revolution. 
    *2 A system that directly connects the motor and turntable. Directly conveying the motor’s rotational force to the driver ensures that loss is minimized and enables highly efficient energy transfer.

Also, simply pressing the “RESET” button instantly reverts to the fixed rotation speed at ±0%.Tempo control with variable width selectable from three levels

    Attachable / detachable power and audio cables

    Since the “PLX-1000” uses attachable / detachable power and audio cables, there are no cables getting in the way when transporting the turntable, nor is there any risk of impact when moving or disconnection due to cables getting caught. Users can also interchange the cables as they please in order to customize the sound quality.

    Other features

    • ・ The body of the player is structured so that cables do not protrude beyond its outer dimensions, taking into account the front-to-back positioning when placing the back of the turntable, with its connection terminals, next to a mixer.
    • ・ By using rubber and springs on the dampening parts of the insulator, noise from external vibrations is absorbed and isolated, and stable installation is made possible.
    • ・ DJ play has been made smoother by minimizing the operational sound of the START / STOP button.
    • ・ A rough surface is applied to the underside of the turntable on the left and right sides in order to ensure stability when carrying.
