    Default pioneer plx1000

    so im looking at getting my first turntable setup to step my game up in the scratching department and i am kind of iffy about buying used 1200's so i was looking at getting some plx1000's for club use. but i recently saw a video about a sound resonance problem. heres the link if anyone wants to take a look

    is this really a problem with the turntable or just an isolated incident?

    Depends on whether you want to use it at home or in a club. However, the PLX is overpriced, since its a OEM standard Hanpin turntalbe just like the Reloop and Stanton turntables. I suggest you check them out as well if you want the same stuff for less money. Just because it says Pioneer it doesn't mean it's better than others.

    If you can find a good deal on some Stanton ST-150s, you'll do well with them. Otherwise, preowned Technics or Vestax.

    St/r8-150's or Technics all day. You wont have any noise issues with either. I can attest that the PLX-1000's have a horrible transition of bass through the deck. All that stupid electronic internals is nice for the features, but limited space for sound dampening material.

    Just save yourself a ton of $$$ and pick up a set of st-150s. It's crazy to me why people would by anything else at this point.

    I can say I love my PLX-1000. I looked seriously at the Stanton ST-150s, the Technics didnt have a wide enough pitch for me to really look further into them. I got a great deal on a used one around $350 total.
