Vestax PDX-8000


The PDX-8000 is a high end performance turntable designed for the beginners and the professionals with the same basic quality as the best selling turntable, the PDT-5000.

The New designed A.S.T.S and TH balance tonearm system protects skipping performance in hard scratching, and provides an adjustment mechanism of tone arm height.

Using a high torque motor, the integral motor delivers 1.6Kg starting torque.

The tonearm is mounted on the deck plate using a floating suspension system with the drive motor. Acoustic feedback is minimised by this advanced system.

The PDX-8000 provides a detachable stylus illuminator for illuminating the stylus tip during play in low light conditions.
