Excellent sound design

Just like the PLX-1000, the PLX-500 is built to produce a high-quality vinyl sound. The shortest possible audio routing from the stylus to the outputs reduces distortion,

while the phono/line output switch lets you connect directly to your sound system or to powered speakers with no need for an external amplifier.

Easy digital recording

Record your vinyl collection to high-quality digital files by simply connecting the turntable to your PC or Mac via the USB out.

Smooth DJ play

Use the PLX-500 to mix and scratch your vinyl records or combine the turntable with rekordbox dvs, a compatible DJ mixer and the RB-VS1-K Control Vinyl to play and perform with your digital files

Cover art display

Put your record covers on display while listening to your vinyl thanks to the sleeve stand inside the dust cover.

Start from scratch

This turntable comes with all the accessories you need to get started: a dust cover with jacket stand, a slipmat and a silver edition PC-HS01-S headshell (cartridge and stylus included).

rekordbox dvs
