    UTILIZATION

    Hello,

    I have this mixer since 2005, I bought it new on one of the German sites where the stuff was cheaper at the time (400 €, and she was more than € 600/700 in France) .

    I mix on vinyl with Technics MK2 since 2002, I started as a lot of people with Gemini PS 626I had a good price / quality ratio, which is very good for beginners, but I have not found the sound fantastic, and the faders started to crack when I was not doing anything violent with it. In 2003 I went on Stanton RM3s which was better than the Gemini (better sound and more solid), but I still was not totally satisfied.

    UTILIZATION

    Hello,

    I have this mixer since 2005, I bought it new on one of the German sites where the stuff was cheaper at the time (400 €, and she was more than € 600/700 in France) .

    I mix on vinyl with Technics MK2 since 2002, I started as a lot of people with Gemini PS 626I had a good price / quality ratio, which is very good for beginners, but I have not found the sound fantastic, and the faders started to crack when I was not doing anything violent with it. In 2003 I went on Stanton RM3s which was better than the Gemini (better sound and more solid), but I still was not totally satisfied.

    Since the beginning I dreamed the Vestax PCV 275 but I did not have the budget: it has a great look (a bit old school) champagne color finish, and metal construction makes it very strong. Aesthetically, it looks like the Vestax PMC-55 used by Jeff Mills but much lighter version. However, I think it has the same build quality.

    SOUNDS

    With the PCV 275, I simply no longer wanted to change the mixer, it has a warm sound which all frequencies sound good. The bass is present but not too invasive, and ditto for the midrange and treble sounds like a audiophile table. At home on a small hi-fi amplifier can already feel the difference largely to an entry-level table, and the big sound we take a slap.

    Faders are smooth and are resistive, which allows "up / down" states. Mounted above the crossfader is very good but I do not use it: friends scratcher, this table is oriented Electro, so there is no adjustment curve cross. Anyway locations Kills prevent extensive use of cross scratcher for all crazy.

    Setting low mids treble is just great, it is extremely accurate to the millimeter. At the beginning the feeling seems weird, but after a few mixes is pure happiness. It's really the mix at your fingertips: we feel that we do.

    The Kills work perfectly well and do their small effect.

    The meter is long and precise gadget is not unlike other mixers.

    I am not using external effects but it made me look good at the full effects management.

    Previewing is well managed with the SPLIT button, but since I live in an apartment I mix with headphones, and this table does not allow for the headphones to listen to the Master on the 2 atria. To remedy this, I plugged a master output to an input mixer to listen without disturbing the neighborhood.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have tried many brands and models, Pioneer DJM 600/400/800 Rodec Mixbox / 180 MK3, Ecler Nuo 2, and I never found the same sensations. Perhaps by testing the Allen & Heath, Rane Empath or I will find the same feeling, but I never had the opportunity to touch them.

    Defects: the perfect mix of table does not exist. To me its flaws are not important for my use, and with all these corrections / changes listed below should be directed directly to the Vestax PMC-55, but the budget is not the same.
    - Pre listening master not possible on the two atria of a fully mix with headphones
    - It fails VU meters for each channel
    - The addition of adjusting the crossfader curve and better provision Kill would make this hybrid mixer
    - Not enough outputs (RCA, a Jack, but no XLR), and no additional volume control (Booth, Record ...)


    Grades:
    - Tone
    - Precision bass settings / midrange / treble
    - Construction
    - A (too) good crossfader to mix Electro
    - Many entries

    I am very satisfied, I even bought a second or I installed the rotary fader kit (DFK 275): Vestax PCV 275 R. Now I use with Serato SL1. This is MY reference mixer, like turntables Technics SL 1200 MK2 and Sennheiser HD 25.
    I'd like to try the Vestax PMC-CX, the model developed by Carl Cox, but too rare and expensive.

    These models then in Vestax are no longer manufactured, unfortunately, manufacturers adapt to demand and provide more functionality (onboard effects, onboard sound) at the expense of sound quality and robustness of components, unless they towards the high-end analog tables.

    6 line, 3 phono, 2 masters, the most powerful and kills trs incomparable maneuverability!

    Cons:
    It is assignable cross that channel 1 and 3, again we can not regulate his curve.
    -There are only two exits but no MASTER ZONE or REC output.

    UTILIZATION

    Pleasing to the touch and especially robust! We feel we have not behringer knob under the fingers.
    The cross is very nice, normal pcv technology.
    The manual is good.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had a year and I am very happy with my purchase and more is available right now asser ct prices then do not hesitate it is worth it ...

    No I did not try many table before buying it, but rather after purchase. The price / quality ratio is very good.
    If I had my choice again I would hesitate to be the new PMC-08 Pro Hybrid.

    Its good for techno, but not for house....bass is too droney sounding...not very thumpy.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I loved this mixer except for the sound quality. no matter what eq config i had theres just not enough high end and the bass is way too droney and hollow...not thumpy at all.

    I miss separate VU's for each channel but otherwise I think it's plenty bang for the buck. The effects loop in particular is wicked - it's quiet, has both send and return controls and has both a pre- and post-fader alternative.

    Price paid

    $449 brand new

    UTILIZATION

    It's so easy to use even my grandmother could operate it. Everything is logically laid out, every switch and such is in the right place. Hooking up my CD, turntables and effects unit and getting to grips with the whole mixer took me approx. 10 minutes and after that it was easy as stealing candy from a child.

    SOUNDS

    Considering the price, I think it has no real competitors besides the Ecler SMAC30 in the same price range. It obviously do not compare to, say, a Rane or an Allen & Heath, but for smaller parties and clubs and home use it performs really well.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I wouldn't trust it for a world tour, but I've had it for a few smaller gigs and it's stood up to abuse really well. The buttons feel great, and my only nag on it is that the knob on the crossfader tends to feel a little loose from time to time. I never use the crossfader though, so for me that's no problem. I've contacted their customer support twice (via e-mail) before getting it, and both times I've had a reply within 24 hours, which has been both helpful and nice.

    Of course, there are always a few things you'd want to change - the one that springs to mind are the VU's and the fact that it's like 11.5" wide, making it completely impossible to fit in a coffin or a case. Dumb thing. On the other hand, I'd not hesitate to recommend it because although it has its flaws and there are perhaps better mixers out there, this is a great intermediate mixer that would work well in a longue or at a small club.

    It has everything I need, kill switches are amazing. EQ's are decent. Cue meters all work nicely, and the AUX send/return is usefull. It would be nice if it had a headphone cue pan and a cross fader curve though.

    Price paid

    $375.00

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use, everything is layed out well. Manual is not necessary to use, but it's alright.

    Never had any problems, and the build quality feels very sturdy.

    SOUNDS

    Very good sound quality, I've never experienced any problems. I thought the S/N ratio would be better, but that's probably because I'm using cheap wires.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Amazing piece of mixer.

    This is not a 'scratch' mixer but the fader is incredibly loose. It feels like a real scratch mixer, and also has awesome features for mixing like kill switches. it also has effects loops which i probably will never use but i know they are there if i need an fx unit and has three channel, three band eq.

    Price paid

    $319 for a floor model

    UTILIZATION

    It took me a little while to get all the plugs in the right slots, it is kind of deceiving how to set up a two turntable set up.

    SOUNDS

    Sound quality is awesome, it is focused on mixing but is also awesome for scratching. the eq's are awesome and so are the kill swtiches.
