Vestax announced a new direct drive turntable, the PDX-3000 MKII.

It features Vestax's Anti Skipping Tone-arm System, designed to ensure quality and stable playback by reducing the inner and outer force of the needle, suppressing horizontal vibrations.

Direct Drive DC Motor Upgraded
The PDX-3000 MKII’s direct drive DC motor has torque of maximum 4.7CN/cm, and reaches a constant speed rate within 0.5 seconds from pushing the start/stop button. A precise regulator is required to accurately control such a motor, and with the PDX-3000 it is digitally (32bit CPU) controlled with a digital servo. This servo keeps the motor rotating no matter how heavily the pitch is changed, reverse button is pushed or the platter is pulled back, the manufacturer says.

New platter Upgraded
According to Vestax, with an advanced digital servo in combination, Vestax has cast a new mold to optimize the balance between the platter weight and rotary inertia moment. Having the surface been lowered, DJs should have more control over vinyl, along with designed sides for precise pitch adjustment.

Digital Torque Simulator
The digital servo firmware is the brain of the control circuitry. Over the past 10 years it has advanced in order to provide analog simulation of torque control to DJs. Two control modes can be selected for the DJs preference. Performance mode maintains the stabilized speed and rapid acceleration/deceleration, while MIX mode enables to control precise rpm with the slightest touch to the platter.

MIDI Compatible
The PDX-3000 MKII can be controlled by MIDI note signals sent from other control devices. For example, hook up a MIDI keyboard with a single note vinyl and you can play musical scales.
