a new direct drive turntable to offer a more versatile vinyl solution for DJing
and leisurely listening at a competitive price. The PLX-500 is ready to use straight out of
the box thanks to its line output, which lets you plug it into your sound system or powered
speakers with no need for an external amplifier.
Drawing on our 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 hightorque
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 setup
or the design of your home.
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

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
