Pioneer PL-A35


The PL-A35 combines studio quality performance with the operational ease of a fully automatic.

Simply flick the function lever to the Start position once, and the tonearm will be automatically moved over and lowered onto the record and, at the end of the disc, will return to its rest.

One touch Cue and Repeat features let you interrupt and repeat any record freely.

The platter is driven by a synchronous 4-pole motor of excellent stability independent from power voltage fluctuations.

The belt drive is precision finished on both sides, a feature that helps reduce wow and flutter to an absolute minimum (the tonearm is moved by a separate, geared motor).
