Pioneer PLX-500 K Turntable (Black) Product Description

Drawing on Pioneer DJ's heritage in making high-quality decks, the PLX-500 inherits the layout of the PLX-1000 professional turntable and produces warm, clear analogue sound. The high-torque deck is ideal for scratching and comes with everything you need including a cartridge, stylus and slipmat, and its USB out means you can easily make high-quality digital recordings of your vinyl collection in our free rekordbox software. You can use the PLX-500 and the rekordbox dvs Plus Pack to play and scratch digital files when you combine them with a compatible DJM mixer and the RB-VS1-K Control Vinyl. And you can choose between the black (PLX-500-K) and white (PLX-500-W) versions to match your set-up or the design of your home.

PLX-500 KEY FEATURES

  • High-quality analogue vinyl sound
    The PLX-500 series inherits design features from the PLX-1000 professional turntable to produce the high-quality sound you expect from vinyl. The shortest possible audio routing from the stylus to the outputs reduces distortion, and the phono and line outputs mean you can connect directly to your sound system or powered speakers to enjoy warm sound.
  • Easy digital recording
    An in-built USB output means you can record your vinyl collection to high-quality digital WAV files by simply connecting the PLX-500 to your PC or Mac. Digitising your tracks is easy using our free rekordbox application and, once they’re in your rekordbox collection, you can play them using the PLX-500 and a rekordbox dvs set-up, or on a DDJ controller, or on CDJs via USB. You can also enjoy them on your mobile devices whenever you want.
    Using its audio analysis technology, rekordbox detects the silence between tracks and creates a separate file in your collection for each one, so you can just press play and record a whole album from an analogue source to individual tracks without resetting the recording in between songs. After you’ve finished recording you can name and tag all your new tracks.
    How to record your vinyl to high-quality digital files:
    Connect the PLX-500 to your computer with a USB cable.
    Open our free rekordbox application (version 4.2.1).
    Click the record button in the software and it enters Record Standby mode.
    Press play on the PLX-500. rekordbox begins recording when the music starts.
    When you’ve finished recording, press stop. A window opens in rekordbox where you can enter information for each track including name and artist. The tracks then appear in your rekordbox collection and you can search for them by name, artist etc.
  • High-torque direct drive turntable for DJ performances and rekordbox dvs
    The high-torque, direct drive PLX-500 is ideal for mixing and scratching on. You can also combine it with the rekordbox dvs Plus Pack to play and perform with your digital files when using a compatible DJM mixer and the RB-VS1-K Control Vinyl (available separately).
  • Dust cover with record sleeve stand
    You can enjoy the vinyl sound of your records and their artwork at the same time thanks to the dust cover that incorporates a stand for displaying record sleeves when open.
  • Layout inherited from the PLX-1000 professional turntable
    The PLX-500 inherits its slick design from the professional PLX-1000 turntable and you can choose between the black (PLX-500-K) and white (PLX-500-W) versions to match the colour of your gear or the interior of your home.

Fantastic
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 little turntable
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.

Pioneer PLX-500 Excellent turntables for home set
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.com

Great Turntable for the price.
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.com and you can't go wrong.

New pioneer turntable
Loving this turntable. It’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 that’s personal preference.

Pioneer PLX-500 K
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.

Great for the price!
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.

Pioneer plx500
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.

can I connect these to a set of powered speakers via a 3.5mm single jack, or can they only be connected via an RCA cable?
topthecat9 asked 1 year ago
They come with an RCA cable built in, but I suppose there’s no reason you can’t use an AUX to female RCA adapter to make it work 👍🏻

Does this come with a standard 3.5mm single audio port or does it only have a two pin/RCA output?

It has 2 RCA output and a adapter to 3.5mm jack. Then it has a switch to change from line in to phono.
