For combining digital and vinyl on the dancefloor.
In a move that’s sure to be divisive, Pioneer has unveiled a ‘digital-analog hybrid’ turntable.
The PLX-CRSS12 uses a DVS (Digital Vinyl System) system which combines analogue record playback with software-based digital music control, allowing DJs to move between vinyl records and their digital collection.
The turntable eliminates needle skipping with a tonearm-free system and has a customisable torque level and adjustable stopping speed. It also has MIDI mappable pads and is Serato DJ Pro and rekordbox compatible.
The PLX-CRSS12 is available from September and retails at $1,399 (around £1,090). Find out more here.
