New Pioneer PLX-1000 Turntable

I can't believe this hasn't been posted yet, but here it is:

http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/P...ntable/PLX-1000



quote:
OVERVIEW
The DJ quality PLX-1000 direct drive analog turntable is designed for DJs who enjoy the look, feel, and performance of vinyl for music playback. The model offers a highly familiar, user-friendly control layout, high-torque direct drive mechanism, and exceptional audio playback quality. Combine the PLX-1000 with a Pioneer professional series DJM mixer for an ideal system for true vinyl enthusiasts.

USER-FRIENDLY CONTROL LAYOUT
The PLX-1000 provides a user friendly layout familiar to top DJs of the past and present, providing quick tempo control capability on the right side of the player, start/stop button on the left side, and a high-torque platter with a lighted speed guide

HIGH-TORQUE DIRECT DRIVE SYSTEM
The direct drive mechanism of the PLX-1000 provides high-torque resulting in stable rotation and exceptional control. The turntable can achieve a starting torque of at least 4.5kg/cm and can reach its fixed rotation speed within 0.3 seconds (at 33 1/3 rpm).

SOUND QUALITY DESIGN
To create an extremely stable player and prevent vibration, Pioneer utilized a heavy-mass zinc die-cast chassis for the top section of the player, reinforced with a bottom section made of 8-mm thick resin. The base of the unit was further enforced with 9-mm thick vibration-damping material that results in extremely stable playback. The tone arm also received great attention in build quality and design to maximize performance, using rubber insulation to minimize howling effects during audio playback. The RCA jacks feature gold-plated machine-cut parts for low impedance for excellent sound quality output.


Read the sales blurb. Seems like they copied the technics design verbatim, added RCA sockets in place of soldered cables, using IEC for power, put some rubber in the tonearm and gave you three pitch ranges, for $700.

Not sure if it's enough to convince me they're doing anything other than re-inventing the Technics wheel.

if its anything close to 1210 then fine by me.
i think ill buy one to compare. mostly im interesting in the torq force. others than 1210 have been sucking big time (stanton, numark). unpluggable rca and power is a HUGE upgrade from 1210 imo. the big question is maybe: is it plastic?

Well, according to internet specs, a 1210 weighs approximately 26.4 pounds and this new PLX-1000 weighs 28.88 pounds. So I guess that rules out any plastic inside the Pioneer?

If you read in the first article the main hype was that you can integrate it with record box.

Well a usb option would eliminate the use of an interface like (A/6/10 or SL 3/4 if there was one already built in the turntable. Shorter signal path and less cables. Plus the option of using your own RCA's and your own power cord is a plus.
