Gone are the days of routing your turntables through an external amplifier and then into the sound system. Meet the Pioneer PLX-500 Direct Drive Turntable. Available this September the unit functions as both a record player for the home, as well as a DJ turntable — if you have two. This super modern, high quality deck is supposed to produce a clear, analogue sound that is just great. And it comes in black and white.

The PLX-500 features easy digital recording with Rekordbox that lets you digitize your entire record collection, and even play it on a tablet or smartphone. The technology automatically detects the breaks between tracks so that you can easily skip from song to song. The high torque tone arm is ideal for scratching.
