I have been collecting record since approx. 1999. I have been a long time Vestax Fan!

I was originally introduced to your brand with the PMC275 (3x channel gold mixer), I loved this mixer and I was heavily into just mixing records back then.

Soon afterwards I got into scratching and invested in the PMC07ISP, still to this date my favorite mixer of all time, nice clean layout, solid build, surround sound ability – just WOW! It still has the original fader in there, which feels butter smooth and must have had so much abuse over the years.

I have never seen this (quadraphonic) anywhere else and it’s such a cool function. Hehehe I then bought another unit as a spare I loved it so much!

Since then I have acquired quite a collection of mixers and turntables. The PMC07PRO, PMC06D (Samurai), PMC08 (my second favorite mixer, loved the fader control functions of this, this really took the turntablist scene to the next level in my honest opinion.).

I have the PDX2300 mk1, although I love this table, I still prefer the slightly older generation tables, I think they sounded better, but they didn’t have the ultra pitch.

The PDX8000 is one of my most prized possessions, took me years to find one, I wish I could get a second unit so I had a pair, the Yamaha inspired arm on it is so good!!!

I also have been working on customizing my old PDXD3S mk2. I had the plinth resprayed with a purple flake paint job, it looks almost as good as the red PDX8000. I have sourced the J shape dynamic balance arm for this and will be fitting that arm to it probably next week. I can’t wait to test it out!!!

Long story short, I love the Vestax brand. I’m so sad that you are not making scratch mixers anymore. You were always so far ahead of the competition.

I first was exposed to Vestax when I saw a VDA-1000. I was looking for a small powerful amp for a portable PA system. A friend recommended I check out the VDA-1000. My mind was totally blown away. I knew I had to have one. I looked for almost a year before I found one online for sale. Brand new in the box! 

Super clean reliable sound. What else could you ask for?

Now I am older and more exposed I keep coming back to this amp. It is just easy to use and deal with.

I wish I had a couple of Starling amps and a Phoenix mixer for myself. I am sure they are amazing.

I bought my Vestax A1-MkII tables back in 1997, along with a PMC-03a mixer. I didn’t like the mixer, so I traded it in and got a Pioneer DJM 500, which I kept for a few years, but then eventually got the Vestax PVC-275.

They are all still going strong, I have never had to replace any parts on any of them (obviously apart from replacement styli on to my Ortofon cartridges). So they are 22 years old this year and still going strong.

I only wish I could afford the StpVx Phoenix mixer, as I know I would keep that for at least another 25+ years, but as I do not DJ as much as I* used to, I cannot justify the price (and my wife would go mad and kill me).

It’s nice to see Vestax come back into the market though – all this controller / digital stuff is OK; but I still prefer the feel and sound of vinyl – through a quality analogue mixer and then played loudly through quality amplifiers and speakers; I sincerely hope Vestax will become a major player back in the DJ market soon.

I’ve been mixing music since the age of 16, my first set of decks and a mixer were on the cheap side (Gemini mixer/turntables) and I had a blast learning how to do the basics on that equipment. But then when I “felt ready” to graduate to equipment more suitable to my developing style I chose a (VESTAX PMC 03-A)mixer and technics turntables with ortafon Concorde stylus (blue) and as I matured behind those desks I bought better equipment that included the VESTAX PMC-15 and vestax turntables as I was now mixing on 4 channels as a “house music” DJ. I had that pmc-15 for about 3 years taking it to clubs and house party’s all over Florida I loved the way it sounded. And then finally FINALLY when I had enough money and was ready to get my dream mixer the (VESTAX PMC-46-mk2) the mixer was no longer available and the vestax Corp. went in a different direction, catering to the new “c.d. D.J phenom. Which is ok for some but I’m a vinyl purest, so I was unfortunately forced to go to other company’s for my mixers. Although somewhere in my heart I still want a vestax mixer. And I’ll tell you this with all honesty and sincerity, I would be the happiest DJ alive if I could get my hands  on the new mixer that StpVESTAX is developing. The weight and construction look second to none. It’s like the Loro piana of mixers. The only thing it’s missing is baby shearling sides and a vicuña top.
I think I’m in love with it.

My story with Vestax began when I came upon the VCM-600 in 2009. I was hooked.

The VCM-600 is a machine that I have cherished and still use to this day. It is still supported by Ableton Live in its most recent version (Version 10). It has superior functionality, wonderful design, sturdy and reliable build. It is a modern classic and hope to see something similar again in the near future. I have pictures available upon request and original box as well.
