PL-30 Turntable


  • $59900


Full-automatic stereo turntable with double-layered chassis and built-in phono equaliser

Sometimes you can't beat a vinyl classic.

The PL-30 full-automatic, stereo turntable features an aluminium die-cast platter, tone arm and exchangeable headshell with high-performance MM cartridge. It provides easy hands-off operation, while the stable precision DC servo motor ends spindle wobble for smoother and more accurate platter rotation. To top it off, this turntable comes in an unobtrusive design that matches any d_cor.

The built-in phono equaliser with 'On/Through' selector lets you select 'On' for connecting amps without phono terminal, or 'Through' when using an external phono equaliser.

Reviews

"Pioneer has been making turntables for ages, and this new model the PL-30-K is a strong budget-priced contender." - CNET

Double-layered chassis

The PL-30 has a double-layered chassis with a 4mm-thick, metal plate and low centre of gravity for stable playback. It also comes with an original 5mm-thick rubber mat, which suppresses external vibration while firmly gripping the record.

Better tracking

This turntable comes with a low-mass straight tone arm and anti-skating dial for accurate tracking of the record. The tone arm is highly sensitive and resistant to resonance, while the dial applies a small counter force to make sure that the rotating disc doesn't distort the sound balance.
