Pioneer PL-41


The Pioneer PL-41 is a two speed model, 33 1/3 and 45rpm.

Two push-buttons provided on the belt cover control selection of speeds.

Pressing the desired speed push-button will automatically set the turntable for operation of the speed marked on the push-button.

The PL-41 is a belt drive system in which the motor drives the turntable platter through a belt.

Therefore, changing turntable speeds must be done only when the turntable platter is rotating.
