Pioneer PLX-500 K Turntable (Black) reviews

I have just recieved a pair of PLX 500 turntables and I am very impressed with the build quality, ease of use and audio output of this product. They have far exceeded my expectations especially considering the price! I had read that the plastic build of the PLX 500 could lead to unwanted vibrations and sound distortion however after putting the decks through their paces over the past few days I have experienced no such issues. Great product; Im listening to my collection with new ears!
Great cheaper alternative to the more expensive PLX 1000.
This turntable mate not have as powerful a motor as it's older brother or the technics 1200/1210 but this direct drive turntable is definitely adequate for house DJs.
Read a load of blurb about issues with this product and having over 20+ types of decks over the years from technics stantons etc etc.. these are as good as any, albiet they are for more sedate use at home but the quality is up there with the best
Ordered a pair of these for home use, listening and mixing, and are spot on. USB allows you to convert vinyl. Quite a few turntables out there at around this price point to choose from, but for me was an easy decision as I have other Pioneer DJ equipment and always been happy with the brand. Build quality is very good, I had read some reviews that said the plastic build could cause some unwanted feedback, but personally not had any issues. Sound quality is very good. Great for home set up. Very happy with the turntables and also great service from djkit.com
Bought for my home set-up this is the perfect peace of kit. A good sturdy weight and very easy to set up out of the box. You may want to invest in a better quality slipmat but the one supplied is adequate for those just using the turntable to record their vinyl direct from the USB connection which is as simple as anything with Rekordbox. My only improvement would be for Pioneer to put a dampener on the stylus light as it pops up very quickly and is a bit wobbly. However that's just a personal preference from an old DJ who used to use Technics back in the day.
Add to the above the excellent customer service from DJKit.com and you can't go wrong.
I highly recommend these decks they are great and especially for the money you can’t get better in my opinion, Also they are perfect if you’re just starting out as a DJ learning your way 👍🏼 Excellent service from the djkit Team as always.
Loving this turntable. Itâ€™s my first proper one (before was a cheap plug in portable one) so have had a lot of fun with it. The matt black is really smart and has an elegant over all feel to it. Only thing I would say is maybe the slip mat could be a bit more interesting. But thatâ€™s personal preference.
Well what can I say? It's Pioneer... sure it's no Technic 1210 but this turntable is incredible for the money. Fantastic build quality and feels really sturdy. Would recommend to anyone looking for a turntable
Not as good as it bigger brother but handles performance very well once fitted with a nice weighted head. The R.A.C cables feel cheap but this turntable dose give a very clear audio signal without any audio loss. The main think here is to make sure you calibrate the weight, height and anti-skipping in order to match your stylus, this is where the magic happens. I've played with these for almost 12 months now and I'd like to give these my personal rating.
Not a Technics by any means. Build quality is not quite the same but as far as mixing goes it makes little difference. There is some reverberation when holding the record in situ when revolving but this does not effect the sound when actually playing. You can scratch but I would say there are better decks for not allot more that can do this. Some include a gereric concord cartridge as well! For home use this is perfect for me and I am more than happy with my purchase.
Love the pioneer PLX-500
I used 1200s back in the 90s then gave it up
and wanting to get back on the decks and play all my old vinyl i gave theses a go and for the price i cant fault them they do what i want no problem
Had a play on these today didn't like them didn't seem to be up to much Kinda slow on take off after having lil scratch on them compared to another turntable the torque pull seemed lot more better. Audio technica lp120 seemed lot better.
For the money you cant go wrong. I got the rega rp1 before the pioneer and the pioneer is at least 50% better and the rega was the performance pack version so you're paying about the same amount and you're getting a much better record player with the pioneer. One more thing to change from 45rpm to 33rpm on the pioneer you've got button's to change plus you can play 78rpm on the pioneer where the rega you got to change 33 to45 manually you've got to take the platter of and change the belt from one groove to the other groove plus if you want to play 78rpm you can't on the rega so all the plusses go to the pioneer.
I spent about a year looking for a new mixer. Wanted one that was compatible with Serato Dj Pro, but also one I could still use my vinyl on. This mixer gives you the best of both worlds with added features that would normally only be available in something twice the cost. Easy to use, great size and really good quality.
I used to DJ during the 90s - had a residency, played loads of illegal parties and some guest slots for the like of the Cream tour. Always kept my records but kids and a job became the priority so DJing took a back seat.I was one of those people who was reluctant to adapt to the digital world.
Recently started flicking through my tunes, got an itch I had to scratch. Wasn't sure if I just wanted to get a standard mixer or go full digital or the halfway house of DVS. Decided DVS was a nice place to get back into it - got the feel of vinyl but some of the benefits of digital. The next question was whether to get a full controller or something like the scratch which didn't have a lot of the functions of a full dedicated controller. You know where I ended up by the review.
Such a great bit of kit - if I'd had this back in the day I could see some banging nights. I'm enjoying it more than the Xone 92 I had last (sadly sold) and that's mainly due to not only being a vinyl mixer but also having Serato on hand. Loving being able to flick between vinyl and Serato. Plus it's got a superb sound to it and the filters work so well.
Best DVS mixer under £500 IMO. Good build quality all over. The pots, faders and performances pads are really good. I found the pads to be responsive and the FX switch is a nice touch. With Serato I plugged and played using a MacBook Pro with no hassle. Sound quality is nice and professional enough to gig with. In the past I have always regarded Numark as cheap and cheerful, but these days they are offering pro quality at low prices. The feature layout on this mixer can only be found on the S9 or Rane 72 for stand alone mixers. The cheaper alternative would be the Akai AMX, but that only has RCA outputs and it lacks the performance pads/ build quality. IMO It's worth spending the extra £180-200 to get the Numark scratch 2
Well WOW what a MASSIVE surprise in this SeratoInnoNumark Mixer
So far an amazing Serato budget s9 replacement what an amazing price point quality Battle mixer from Numark Free Serato It has Quality Paddles a Innofader X Top Serato standard FX a easy bank system Just get it my Z2 has gone to bedrnrnOnly downfall points but not at this price weak feeling up faders soldiered in red LED only current Bank Pads Xfader mouth too wide if scratching in hamster cut my fingernails to pieces but to resolve this I swoped out the fader caps with Coolorcaps from DJKITrnrnWith these gripes I still give the Numark Scratch 55
