The perfect starter mixing deck, the Pioneer PLX500 has everything you need for a seamless performance.

Direct drive for ultimate control

Like all the best DJ decks, the Pioneer PLX500 features fast-acting direct drive. The 3-phase, brushless DC motor with electronic brake gives fast, effortless control - making your mixes smoother than ever. Combined with the sturdy aluminium platter, robust cartridge, slip-mat and pitch control, you've everything you need from a deck for seamless mixing.

S-shaped tonearm with full adjustment, including VTA
Robust and practical, the PLX500's tonearm is the ideal match for the deck. The classic S-shape is tried and tested and favoured by many for mixing use. Just like you'd hope for from a professional deck, the PLX500's tonearm features a detachable headshell for swift cartridge replacement. It also has accurate weight adjustment plus the crucial VTA height adjustment - letting you use thicker slip-mats and deeper cartridges without upsetting the balance.

USB output for recording to your computer
Featuring a B-type USB you can connect up a PC or Mac. From here it's easy to convert the tracks into digital files - letting you playback your treasured vinyls any place you choose. Combine with software such as Pioneer's own rekordbox and you can also incorporate vinyl into a software based mixing system.

Line level output - simply add active speakers or your choice of amp
Thanks to the Pioneer's built-in phono stage (MM only), it's easy to connect this deck up. Choose from active speakers for desk-top monitoring or any choice of amp or mini system - if it has an AUX input then this DJ deck will plug and play.

Get into the groove with the Pioneer PLX500.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price, service and turntable! This is the first turntable I've purchased in 30 years. Aftee lots of research and talking to friends in the industry I decided on the Pioneer PLX-500 and am seriously impressed, its just as good as the ancient SL1200 I used to run BITD! Excellent construction, weight inspires confidence in the build quality. Great sound after set up and am.i am 100% back to my vinyl. Even 30 year old white labels bought in Soho way back when sound fantastic. Running this with my Kef Q500s and 1980s Marantz amp, I couldn't be happier. This PLX-500 will soon be joined by another and a mixer, again, the first in years. The service and delivery from Richer Sounds was excellent, 100% recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up, great features and sound. Decided to go back to vinyl after many many years. After three bad experiences in the past couple of months I eventually arrived at this one. Bought this turnable on the strength of other reviews which are not always reliable but what I read was more than accurate and true. This is a great quality item, well built and sturdy. Richer Sounds were superb in their handling of my purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality I bought this turntable on April 25. The quality of the performance is very good, satisfactory sound. Preparation of the turntable for playing vinyl boards is easy. I am very pleased with the purchase and service of the store. Delivery on the second day. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect sound for my system. Bought the turntable a couple of week ago. Delivered very quickly. Easy to fix up and sound is better than expected from my old vinyl. Contacted Pioneer for advice on playing 78s and got an immediate positive reply.
