Pioneer PL-30-K Turntable
Audiophile sound combined with convenience, a high-performance cartridge and built-in phono stage
Pioneer introduces a true audiophile turntable that makes listening to records easier and more rewarding than ever before. Everyone knows the joys of spinning a treasured LP, with its warm, rich, accurate sound and a sense of aliveness that rivals or surpasses even the best digital formats. The new Pioneer PL-30-K turntable allows seasoned vinyl lovers to upgrade their existing phono system, while new-generation music listeners can explore the thrill of collecting and engage with music in a way unique to the vinyl experience.
Pioneer’s attention to detail shows, because the PL-30-K comes with a tonearm cable fitted with gold-plated RCA connectors, a detachable AC power cord and a clear acrylic dustcover with removable hinges to keep your turntable as pristine as you keep your cherished records.
High Performance, High Value
The PL-30-K turntable delivers so much value, because it comes equipped with a high-performance, high-output moving magnet (MM) stereo phono cartridge, pre-mounted and ready to play. Because it is already precision installed, there is no tedious mounting necessary. Because the PL-30-K is equipped with a built-in phono equalizer and On/Through selector, it is the perfect turntable for systems that use a preamp, integrated amp or receiver without a built-in phono stage. Just plug the PL-30-K into an auxiliary RCA input, select 'On' and play.
Strong, Stable Audio
This impressive turntable at more than 12 pounds, is engineered with a dual-layered chassis that employs a 4mm-thick metal plate for increased mass and rock-solid sound. It has been designed with a low center of gravity that provides stable playback and sound that's free from feedback and resonance that compromise the potential buried in the grooves of the best LPS. A combination of DC-servo-controlled motor and belt drive offer the most musical performance, with low wow and flutter (0.1 percent or less WRMS) and a signal-to-nose ratio of 60 dB (DIN B). Pioneer’s precision machined, aluminum die-cast platter supports a 5 millimeter thick rubber mat that suppresses external vibrations while treating your precious vinyl with the greatest of care.
Convenient, static-balanced design
Pioneer's aluminum die-cast tone arm is a static-balanced design configured with a straight arm tube for optimum geometry. The detachable aluminum die-cast headshell allows easy cartridge swapping and overhang adjustment. An anti-skate dial allows precise adjustment to achieve the most accurate stylus tracking in the lateral plane, reducing tracking distortion on inner grooves. And because of its fully automatic operation with 33 1/3 rpm LPs and 45 rpm 45s, the Pioneer PL-30-K makes tedious positioning the tonearm at the beginning of the record and lifting it at the end, a thing of the past.

The PL-30 is designed from the ground up with one single goal in mind: to extract all information that lies in the grooves of analogue records, in order to guarantee the most satisfactory musical experience. This new turntable is fully automatic, which means that the tone arm will be positioned exactly above the very first grooves of the record and will then gently be lowered to start the music. All by pushing a single button. When the record is finished, the tone arm will automatically return to its base.

Minus one star for the bright LED red strobe which is on the front and is very obvious when unit is playing, especially in a dark room. It would be nice to turn that off when not in use, as it is very distracting. I made a small plastic "door" to cover the strobe, now much better. Note per the instructions the output does not go to the "phono" input on the receiver, but to an aux input, I have mine going to VCR/VID1 on my TEAC receiver.
Love the adjustable speed control which should be standard on any modern TT.
The one feature I would've like to see though is an adjustable anti-skating feature which comes in handy on some of the old vinyl I own.
The tone arm doesn't raise very high so changing the cartridge could be a challenge. They should have made it a P-mount that being the case. The cartridge and pre-amp that comes with it surprised me though. It sounds pretty good!
Another minor complaint is that the turntable itself sits down in the molded housing, so picking up albums can only be accomplished properly in a 12 o'clock/6 o'clock position which is not the most convenient.
