Vestax PDX-2000

“High standards”

Written on: 20/08/2014 by Paulsoutheast (2 reviews written)

I owned these decks some time ago for stepping up my game doing online radio shows. I've never come across such a solid deck before apart from the classic Technics 1210's. But what the Technics lack of, Vestax improves upon. These turntables may of been designed for competition scratching but they are also perfect for mixing up them tunes. They give such a possible feel and feedback using the high torque motor's. I've noticed these going dirt cheap online these days and will probably buy again… Read Full Review

Solid turntables,lots of torque,stop,start speeds,reverse(y?),have never let me down.all my technics mates are hatred until they actually try them.they don't let up up to much but I can tell,they love em.I use the ultra pitch all the time.it gives you such a greater range.speed variation is instant.amazing for scratching,so much power with instantaneous response.got mine hooked up with my 'vestal pmc -05pro3 vca mixer'.great set up.couldn't ask for any thing better myself.to all those pdx2000… Read Full Review

Paulsoutheast's Comment

Written on: 20/08/2014

I agree. Depends what ones you get too. I had the metal platter type. The feet were solid. Pitch controls are perfect where they are with the included digital display which comes in handy. I found the ultra pitch control was a nice add but rarely used by myself. The straight tone arm shouldn't skip when playing or scratching as that's what its designed for... weight on the needle was wrong i would assume. I used these decks myself for some time doing live radio shows mainly for mixing. So where your getting mixing not good for i don't know. Fair play this is your opinion but i find many of you points to me some what lie's.

Yes sadly the light is not included but if like many real dj's you just go out and buy some. These are very solid decks and if your finding it hard to mix then that's probably down to the strong motor you call weak. Running one of the highest torque motor's in the scene.

I personally think you've had a bad experience and should try or buy a decent set next time. Maybe its a case of a hate or love relationship lol.

Written on: 11/03/2008

I have 3 of the Vestax PDX-2000 turntables... 2 to play with and 1 replacement because they break so frequently. Either the power switch will break or a fuse will blow. I just had my 4th power problem this weekend. I didn't take the bottom off yet but I'm preying it's a blown fuse. If not I have to pay another $40 to order a switch and wait 2 weeks for it to be delivered and then get the old soldering gun and put it in.
I love the feel of these tables but I just cant get over how defective… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2006 by DJ Shadowskill (6 reviews written)

Vestax PDX-2000 - for over 2 decades a big black panasonic shadow loomed over the dj-ing world, then one day everything changed, that was the day vestax were unleashed and now everything is diferent!

The 1st time i say a pair of these was watching mix master mike, i was young then, at 1st i was wondering why he 'held up the night' by unplugging a pair of technics and setting some vestax up, 10 minutes later my jaw dropped, i couldnt believe my eyes, and i wasnt the only one..

Written on: 16/03/2003 by Dub-Se7en. (1 review written)

I've had my vestax for just over a year now and although i love 'em to bits they are proving a little bit unreliable. the biggest problem being the clicky platters. They start to develop play in them (especially on the deck that you scratch the most on). Most of my mates who dj have gone down the vestax route and they all have had to send them back to have this problem fixed as it does affect the performance noticably (the worst case of this was you could hear the platter grind against the case… Read Full Review

The tonearm floats?
<br>not if you weigh it properly - any tonearm floats if incorrectly set up!!
The only thing with the tonearm would be the clearance causing a problem. I can't remember the exact measurement but I do remember thinking using 500 al would possibly be to high.
As for the start up there is more torque on the PDX giving a quicker startup than the technics,

Written on: 24/01/2003 by danny boy. (1 review written)

After using technics for a while then having a go on my mates pdx 2000's i instantly decided to get a pair of these. With the pitch control being so huge you can virtually mix any two tracks from any style of music together. Near instant start and stop on the deck is superb, with the added option of changing the speed at which this happens, and the exellent reverse mode makes for great variation in mixing. Plus they look superb!! What more can i say? GO AND GET SOME!!!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/12/2002 by Scam. (1 review written)

These decks are just the best thing since sliced bread. It provides super high torque, amazing tracking, high sound quality, superb accuracy and extra functions that are actually useful. Performance wise they seems to have taken all the little imperfections of a technics like the need for antiskate, pitch innacuracy around the zero point and the limited pitch range and added all the functions I can really ever see a DJ using on a turntable. My favourite inclusion by far is the ultra pitch… Read Full Review

Technic's turntable - you gotta love 'em. Quick starting, reliable, sleek and not just a little bit sexy.
Everyone I've ever met through my DJ'ing addiction has either got them, is saving for them or wants them. Every club system worth its salt has at least two sitting in the booth and it even has its own Mixing championship and clothing line.
Its been like this ever since I became hooked on vinyl about 14 years ago. There has NEVER been a contender to the kingdom built up around what will… Read Full Review
