We at Hifi Pig HQ make no secret that we’ve been long time fans of the Technics 1200 turntables, but Pioneer_PX100as you will know it’s out of production now!  Fear not, for Pioneer now have an alternative in the form of the PLX-100.

Whether or not this quartz locked, high torque, direct drive turntable that weighs in at 13.1Kg and bears more than a passing resemblance to the 1200 will have the same impact as the legendary Technics remains to be seen.

Clearly aimed at the club and DJ market, Hifi Pig will be interested to see if any entrepreneurial types out there come up with any mods for this turntable, as they have with the Technics, and getting it accepted as a legitimate audiophile alternative.
