Really great set of decks!
I bought these to replace my Vestax PDX-2000's that I've had for years, and I am not disappointed in the slightest. I considered buying a new set of Technics 1210's (although I've never owned a set of Technics), but they are really expensive. So my best options were to buy a second hand set of 1210's or a brand new set of these. After reading a lot of positive reviews, I bought these and I'm sure I made the right choice! Really good build quality, powerful motor and selectable +/- 8, 16 + 50% pitch options. Highly recommended.

Pioneer PLX-1000 Turntable
Only faults are: you pay so much money for a fantastic turntable, only to buy the cartridge separately & surprisingly, no usb point or Bluetooth. Someone needs to speak to the engineer.

Pioneer PLX-1000 Review
After 6 months of use, I cannot be any more happier with my first ever set of turntables as I look to learn about mixing on vinyls! The build is solid, robust and easy to set up and look forward to spending many more happier years with this piece of kit!

Great turntables, I'm so happy that I purchased these decks. I'd heard and read a few mixed reviews which I was a bit cautious about so I decided to take the plunge and buy a pair, definitely think I made the right choice. I would recommend these turntables

Great Decks
A cheaper but no compromise alternative to Technics (latter you pay for the name). Only disappointment is they are not supplied with stylus cartridges. However on decks as good as these you'd want to invest in something like a Ortofon Concorde anyhow. Great service from djkit.com.

Fantastic deck
Arrived very quickly. This deck has the feel of my old technics mk2/mk5 without the price tag. There is nothing I can say bad about it.

Really well made quality turntable
Easy to set-up and use, quiet running great speed control. Solidly built. I use it for hifi and it sounds great to me. Only problem I've found is with using Moving Coil Cartridges - both my Ortofon and Audio Technica MC cartridges produce noticeable hum. I don't have the same problem with the moving magnet cartridges. Maybe its the direct drive system inducing a current into the coils of the MC cartridges - or maybe it's just the greater amplification needed for MC that makes the hum noticeable. Still it's irritating.

Great servuce by the DjKit team
Having sold my decks back in 2004 I decided to get my vinyl out of storage and have a play. As I lived locally I went to the warehouse/display centre and tested everything out. Really helpful staff and gave me some great advice.

Pioneer PLX-1000
Solidly built with a great sound. Wasn't looking for a DJ turntable but for reasonably priced audiophile equipment. After reading the PLX-1000 review on a stereophile blog I found I could have a DJ deck at audiophile level quality.

Absolute 1210 replacement!!
Why spend 600 quid each per 2nd hand deck on ebay, of which are all old (obviously) and you don't really know how have been treated, and most sellers standards of the word 'mint' judging by photos leave a lot to be desired! Glad I chose these over the reloop rp range, Quality, Quality, Quality, plugged them in and the regret of having to sell my 1210's 8 years ago vanished within seconds..... Just like riding a bike!!! Really like the feature of widening the pitch range and didn't want all the connect to traktor bumf, so ideal! Extremely comfortable to play on, everything tight as can be, no messing!

Great Decks
Would recommend any Vinyl DJ's out there to grab a pair of these. Solid decks and have some great features on them such as pitch reset and different pitch ranges. Pitch riding on these feels great too, Kenny ken/10

Great turntable!
I have had these for awhile now and can honestly say that I am really enjoying them. They are in my opinion just as good as a pair of Technics SL-1210's. The pitch controls operate and hold the speed just like a Technics deck but what I really love about the Pioneer PLX 1000's is the extra torque. Fantastic. I would recommend these to anyone whose not to sure or sitting on the fence. Once you get used to them you will love them.
