High quality sound meets plug-and-play convenience, with the Pioneer PL30.

Quality construction

Key to a good quality sound with any turntable is precision design and construction, and it's here the Pioneer PL30 distinguishes itself. The double-layered chassis with 4mm metal base plate gives it great rigidity and mass damping to resist and absorb vibrations, helping to reduce distortion and creating a purer sound. The precision-built aluminium platter offers decent mass and precise balance, for speed and stability. And helping to keep the sensitive tone-arm isolated from the rest of the turntable is a die-cast mounting block.

Fully automatic operation
Although the emphasis is very much on sound quality, the PL30 is still easy to use. It's a fully automatic design, so the tone-arm not only returns to its base at the end of the record but also moves to the start of the record and lowers itself, all at the touch of a button.

Built-in phono stage
The PL30 comes with a good quality Audio Technica MM (Moving Magnet) cartridge. Thanks to the built-in phono stage, it's possible to connect the turntable straight up to any hi-fi system with an Aux input - no further phono stage is required.

For a turntable that offers fuss-free, high quality playback, the Pioneer PL30 is a revolution!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing Compared to my old Dual 505-3 this is poor on sound and the controls feel very flimsy - I have already exchanged it for a Project Debut Carbon, which I am far more at home with, although I think I'd go for a replacement Dual if they were locally stocked.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Major pitch issues If I had written this review as soon as I purchased this turntable I would have given it 5 stars as I thought it was excellent but after a few months I started noticing that the pitch was starting to waver... it got worse over a couple of months until it was intolerable. I returned it to Richer Sounds who were very helpful & sent it back for repair. 3 weeks later I got a call to say I could collect my turntable. I quickly fetched it & opened the box only to find that the lid had been smashed in transit. I went back in to the shop & the manager was extremely apologetic and instantly replaced the turntable with a brand new one :) ' What a result' I thought but 3 weeks later I find myself sitting here listening to music that sounds like the batteries have gone. The motors or speed control circuitry in these turntables must be very poor quality. I shall go back to my old Tandy turntable from the 80's and take this heap of junk back yet again.... Can't fault Richer Sounds Lichfield though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Turntable terrific value....... This turntable is amazing value and a quality product. It is extremely simple to connect up, all you are really doing is connecting the belt and the arm balance weight. I've connected it up to an AKAI amp and Goodman speakers and the sound is incredible. I have been collecting vynil since 1965 and have had various turntables and this one is exceptional. If you are just geting into vynil I recommend this deck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to set up Was looking for a reasonable quality easy to use turntable, this certainly fits the bill. For the price there are turntables with more features but I was looking for an old school turntable so did not need direct drive, strobes of 78 ability. Automatic function is perfect for me as I want the whole family to use it and it has worked flawlessly to date, I am pleased with the sound this turntable produces there is a warmth and clarity of mid range and lower which is instantly noticeable when comparing to digital music.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An excellent turntable I have been after a new turntable for quite a while and this one fits the bill nicely without breaking the bank. It connects easily to my Roberts CD system and plays records well. Having tested a couple that skipped on my old deck which was not adjustable in terms of tracking weight they play fine on this deck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow Been promising myself a new turntable since I gave my "ion" to my son as his introduction to vinyl. After much review reading and deciding on my budget/quality limit I decided on the Pioneer PL30, great service & advice in store & when I got home and listened to a variety of vinyl ranging from original 45 year old ELP albums to new John Grant all sounded fantastic with so much information being heard it was like a whole new listening experience

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As descibed, but better A quality turntable that harks back to the 1970's when Pioneer belt drive turntables were the only game in town.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Turntable Having purchased a Teac TN100 dull sound no adjustments basic entry turntable I was then given to test a Pioneer PL30 what a revelation knocked the Teac for six! Pioneer played all my old and new vinyl played over scratches with no jumps or pops, great sound,excellent Audio Technica cartridge, this deck fully automatic ,weight and skate adjustment. Recommend this deck but being a bit OCD I felt let down by the use of a cable tie to keep tone arm locked in place. Liked the sound of the Pioneers audio technica cartridge. So after test upgraded to an Audio Technica ATLP 5 and now achieving the quality sound for my vinyl. But if you can overcome the cable tie this deck is amazing and the fully automatic function is a luxury.
