AlphaTheta presents the professional digital-analog hybrid turntable PLX-CRSS12

PioneerDJ PLX CRSS12 2 HI

AlphaTheta Corporation announces the launch of the professional digital-analog hybrid turntable PLX-CRSS12 from its brand Pioneer DJ. This innovative deck is the world's first to offer digital music control through DJ software using DVS, as well as analog playback of vinyl records, helping you take your performances to the next level.

Never worry about needle skips when using the PLX-CRSS12 in DVS mode with Serato DJ Pro or rekordbox. The armless phono cartridge playback means you can scratch with a real analog record at the force you desire without fear of losing rhythm. And when you want to play a record traditionally, you can simply switch the deck to analog mode and use the phono cartridge as usual.

Regardless of how you like to feel the decks, the PLX-CRSS12 adapts to your style. By adjusting the rotation dial on the included MAGVEL CLAMP, you can tune the "weight" or "lightness" of the record. You can also adjust the turntable's torque level in the utility settings, with three stop speeds to choose from.

At first glance, you'll see how the PLX-CRSS12 has been designed for smooth scratching and intuitive performance. When you explore it, you'll notice new features that enable a higher level of control and creativity. The battle-style design leaves plenty of room for scratching, and there are 4 MIDI-mappable Performance Pads. You can also control crucial information through the OLED screen.


In addition to the exciting features you can see, the PLX-CRSS12 includes a wealth of new additions that are not visible. Several components of the highly regarded professional PLX-1000 turntable have been updated to create the best analog sound from a Pioneer DJ deck.

Key Features


Armless phono cartridge DVS control eliminates digital playback skips

No matter how hard you scratch, you will never experience needle skips when using the PLX-CRSS12 in Digital Vinyl mode, thanks to the armless system. The new MAGVEL CLAMP keeps a record firmly in place when touched, allowing you to directly control the digital music file, offering you the authentic vinyl feel without the need for a phono cartridge. When playing analog records, the experience is like using the popular PLX-1000 deck.


Sensitivity adjustment to suit your style

Find your perfect "weight" setting by turning the dial on top of the MAGVEL CLAMP. The torque amount will increase or decrease to make the record feel lighter or heavier without changing or adjusting slipmats or slip sheets. You can also adjust the turntable's torque level in the utility settings, and there are three stop speeds to choose from via a switch on the front of the unit.


Performance Pads and OLED screen for precise and quick control

The PLX-CRSS12 inherits design elements from classic turntables, but a new addition is the 4 built-in MIDI-mappable Performance Pads that put your favorite functions at your fingertips. They are right where you need them, just below the platter, so you can trigger Hot Cues and samples faster than ever, which is even more useful if you're performing on a mixer without pads. It incorporates support for various pad modes (see below), and a dedicated button lets you switch control from pads 1-4 to 5-8. The pads can also be assigned to MIDI, so you can assign them to other functions.

Native pad mode compatibility

The built-in OLED screen also helps you focus on the deck. You can control the tempo range and key when using analog or digital vinyl mode, and when using digital vinyl mode, you can reference BPM, key, deck number information, and the software name you are using. The screen also gives you quick access to utility settings, so you don't have to break concentration and look at your laptop or mixer during a performance.


Evolved high-quality sound

Let your audience enjoy your music the way it was meant to be heard. The PLX-CRSS12 has been carefully designed to enhance the sound quality of the professional DJ turntable PLX-1000, which is highly acclaimed for its precise sound reproduction. A switched power supply is used to eliminate power supply vibration and flux leakage, and unwanted noise is suppressed, resulting in high-resolution sound quality.

As with the PLX-1000, the top chassis is made of high-mass die-cast zinc and the bottom is made of 8mm thick resin to optimize the chassis structure and vibration damping materials. The RCA terminals are also made of gold-plated machined parts like those of the PLX-1000, and the phono signal is transmitted directly through a stable connection to reproduce the sound of analog records with high-quality audio.


Other Features


Replaceable MAGVEL CLAMP

Additional clamps are available for purchase if you want to bring your own set on the go or need to replace a lost clamp. You can conveniently store the MAGVEL CLAMP in a dedicated area on the top of the deck.


Robust and stylish matte black design

The PLX-CRSS12 has a matte black color structure, with special coatings applied to the phono arm and other metal parts, as well as carefully crafted details that give it a robust and elegant appearance.


Compatibility with Serato DJ Pro and rekordbox

The PLX-CRSS12 is compatible with Serato DJ Pro and rekordbox. By connecting this unit to a PC/Mac with the installed DJ software and to a mixer compatible with the DVS function of the respective DJ software, you can start playing in digital vinyl mode and use the Performance Pads.
