DJ/professional audio products
manufacturer Vestax has added three new turntables to its expanding
line of DJ products.
Handytrax is a portable turntable
with integral case and carrying handle, and features a balanced tone
arm that will play back at almost any angle. The innovative Handytrax
allows DJs and vinyl enthusiasts to enjoy their music anywhere, any
time. DJs shopping for new vinyl can now bring their own listening
system to audition records prior to purchase.
Durable enough for heavy
professional use, the Handytrax features a belt-driven 3-speed
platter (33 1/3, 45, and 78 RPM), pitch and tone control, and a
built-in 4W power amp and speaker. The turntable includes line in,
line out, and headphone out for maximum flexibility. It can be
battery-powered or run on a 12V adaptor (included). The unit measures
14.57" x 10.24" x 3.74" and weighs 5.51lbs. The
Handytrax lists for $199 US.
The PDX-01 introduces a new
concept in professional turntables with a sleek, compact circular
design. Featuring the Anti-Skip Tone arm System (ASTS) with height
adjustment up to 0.35", a unique anti-vibration mount to
minimize howl, as well as +/-10% pitch control, the PDX-01 is
suitable for professional applications in any environment. The unit
measures 17.87" (W) x 6.378" (H) x 14.37" (D). List
price is TBA.
The new PDX-2300 turntable
represents the next generation in development of the successful
PDX-2000, and is aimed at both the modern DJ and the vinyl
connoisseur. A digital readout allows precision pitch adjustment with
+/-50% pitch control on a fader plus an additional +/10% with a fine
pitch control. 1, 2, 3, and 6% momentary pitch-bend is also provided.
The PDX-2300 includes all the other features of its predecessor,
including the advanced motor design and innovative tone arm, and an
upgrade kit is available for existing PDX-2000 owners. List price is TBA.
