Pioneer DJ PLX-CRSS12 Premium Digital-Analog Hybrid Turntable
The Pioneer DJ PLX-CRSS12 is the world’s first turntable that supports both analog record playback and tone-arm-free DVS control. This makes it the ultimate deck for DJs who want to maximize their creativity.
Tone-Arm-Free DVS Control Eliminates Skipping In Digital Playback
No matter how hard you scratch, you’ll never experience needle skipping with the PLX-CRSS12 in Digital Vinyl mode. The new MAGVEL CLAMP holds a record firmly in place when you touch it. It enables you to directly control the digital music file. This gives you the true feeling of vinyl with no need to use the tonearm. With analog records, the experience is just like using the popular PLX-1000 deck.
Feeling Adjustment To Suit Your Style
Additionally, you can quickly adjust the record’s “weight” with the dial on top of the MAGVEL CLAMP. Therefore, this means you can effortlessly continue your performance without the hassle of changing slip mats or slip sheets.
Customizable Torque Level
It’s easy to change the turntable rotation torque level in the utility settings to suit your preference. You can choose from “High” for quick startup when you press PLAY. Otherwise, use “Low” for the traditional torque speed that many DJs are familiar with. Also, use “Mid” for a balance between the two.
PLX-CRSS12 Adjustable Stopping Speed
Use the switch on the front of the deck to adjust the time it takes for the turntable to stop when you press STOP. The “Min” is sharp. The “Mid” uses a traditional stopping speed that’s familiar to DJs. And the “Max” creates the longest stopping speed for a gradual and dramatic finish to a track or performance.
Performance Pads For Accurate And Rapid Control
The PLX-CRSS12 inherits classic turntable layout elements. However, a new addition is the 4 built-in MIDI-mappable Performance Pads. In fact, this puts your favourite features at your fingertips. They’re right where you need them – just below the platter. Fire off Hot Cues and samples quicker than ever, which comes in handy even more if you’re performing on a mixer that has no pads.
Also, there’s native support for various pad modes (see below), and a dedicated button enables you to switch control from pads 1-4 to 5-8. Specifically, the pads are MIDI mappable too, so you can assign them to other features.
OLED Display For Quick Confirmation Of Track Information
The built-in OLED display also helps you focus on the deck. You can keep an eye on the tempo range and key when Step Pitching and, when you connect the PLX-CRSS12 via USB to your PC/Mac running DJ software, you can reference BPM, key, deck number information.
The display also gives you quick access to the utility settings – all of which reduces the need to break concentration and look at your laptop or mixer during a performance.
High-Quality Sound Reproduction Of Analog Records, Evolved From The PLX-1000
Let your audience enjoy your music the way it was intended to be heard. The PLX-CRSS12 has been carefully built to improve on the sound quality of the PLX-1000 professional DJ turntable, which is highly acclaimed for its accurate sound reproduction.
PLX-CRSS12 Switching Power Supply
A switching power supply is used to eliminate transformer power supply vibration and flux leakage, and unwanted noise is suppressed, resulting in high-resolution sound quality.
High-Mass Die-Cast Zinc
As with the PLX-1000, the upper part of the chassis is made of high-mass die-cast zinc and the lower part is made of 8 mm thick resin to optimize the chassis structure and vibration-damping materials.
Machined Gold-Plated RCA Terminals
The RCA terminals are made of machined gold-plated parts like those on the PLX-1000, and the phono signal is directly transmitted through a stable connection with the plug to reproduce the sound of analog records with high-quality audio.
Robust And Elegant Design In Matte Black Colour
The Pioneer DJ PLX-CRSS12 has a matte black colour scheme, with special coatings applied to the tone arm and other metal parts, plus carefully crafted details that give it a robust and elegant appearance.
