NOTES
FEATURES
● 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.
● ANTI SKIPPING TONE-ARM SYSTEM,TRACING HOLD
BALANCE SYSTEM
New designed A.S.T.S(Anti Skipping Tone-arm System)
and TH(Tracing Hold) balance TONE-ARM system protect
skipping performance in hard scratching. And this TONEARM provide adjustment mechanism of tone-arm height
which Vestax Turntable series have generally.
● FAST STARTS BY HIGH TORQUE
Using high-torque direct motor, the integral motor delivers
1.6kg• cm start torque. The high-torque gives quick starts that
enables the platter to reach 33-1/3 rpm within 0.3 second.
● FLOATING SUSPENSION TONEARM
The tone-arm is mounted on the deck plate using a floating
suspension system with the drive motor. Acoustic feedback
is minimized by this advanced system.
● QUARTZ-PHASE-LOCKED CONTROL
The pitch is variable continuously by up to approximately ±10%
and returned automatically to the predetermined speed (33-1/3 or
45 rpm) by on/off switch even if the pitch control is employed.
● NON-CENTER-CLICK PITCH FADER
P i t ch fader has no center cl i ck, and it allows delicat e
adjustment easily. The PDX-8000 features detachable pitch
control fader for ease of replacement when it is worn out.
● MINI LIGHT FOR ILLUMINATING STYLUS
The PDX-8000 provides detachable small stylus illuminator for
illuminating the stylus tip during play for low-light conditions.
● OTHER FEATURES
Q u i ck stops are ach i eved with an electronic bra k i n g
system. Remote control jack is provided for controlling
START/STOP by other equipment like a fader start etc.
● Using FULL TIME QUARTS LOCK SYNTHESIZER.
rotation of turntable is controlled. Using PLL circuit of the
two system. Accuracy of playing speed and time keeping
will be completed.
● The pitch speed is controlled by none center click pitch
control fader volume. The pitch fader span can be selected
between ±12%, ±6%, ±3%.
● MOTOR OFF function is provided to cancel servo/brake
of the motor and REVERSE MODE will reve rse the
turntable thus provided.
● STICK CONTROLLER is provided for the functions of
pitch bend and FAST/SLOW, so that it is possible to
abjust speed up or down to begin phrase of a song without
touching the record.
● Before
detaching or attaching the headshell, be sure to turn
the power of the amplifier or mixer off.
● Detaching or attaching of the headshell with the volume
control turned up may cause damage to the speakers.
● Do not turn "ON" the power supply, with the turn t abl e
platter detached.
● When play is finished, be sure to secure the tone-arm with
the arm clamp. After play is finished, if the unit is not to be
used for some time, care should be taken to secure the
tone-arm to protect the stylus tip. For the same reason, the
stylus protector should also be attached.
● Wipe the headshell terminals from time to time. Dust and
d i rt at the headshell terminals may result in incre a s e d
"HUM" noise or intermittent sound. Use a soft dry cloth to
clean the heashell terminals.
● Dust and dirt should be carefully removed from stylus tip
or records. Dust and dirt on the stylus tip or record may
not only result in deterioration of tone quality, but also
cause undue wear of the record and the stylus tip itself.
● Transportation of the unit to distant places for removal and
the like. Pack up the unit in the reverse order to that for
unpacking, using the packing materials furnished when the
unit was purch a s e d. Should there be no such pack i n g
materials, be sure to take the following steps. Remove the
turntable platter together with the turntable mat, and wrap
it up to prevent any damage to them. Return the tone-arm
to the arm rest, and affix it with tape or the like. Remove
the balance weight and the headshell/cartridge from the
tone-arm and then wrap them up to avoid and damage to
them. Wrap up the turntable base with a blanket or soft
paper also to prevent any possible damage to it.
● ACOUSTIC FEEDBACK AND HUM
Acoustic Feedback is usually cause by vibration of speaker,
which affects the sensitive cartridge. If such a phenomenon
occurs, relocate the turntable or speakers as far apart from
each other as possible. Hum is usually cause by nearby
appliances that use transformer or thermostat. Relocating
the unit further away from the noise sources will readily
s o l ve the pro blem. Hum may also be produced if the
grounding wire extending from the unit is secure ly
connected to the GND terminal on the amplifier of mixer.

A.S.T.S(Anti Skipping Tone-arm System)
A.S.T.S(Anti Skipping Tone-arm System) has been developed with years of
experience and a number of trials, searching for the innovative tone-arm for
professional DJ's.This system breaks all of the historic common sense,
achieving its non skipping performance in hard scratching. A.S.T.S consists
of two inventions, short/straight arm and TH (Tracing Hold) balance system.
●TH balance system gives horizontal movement in addition to vertical. This movement gives much more stable
balance (vertical direction) to the needle. The combination of short / straight arm and TH balance system
gives the best stability to the needle, which enables anti-skipping in hard scratching.
●The brass arm with aluminum cover is used for A.S.T.S . This combination results in the best pick up
sensitivity as well as the best resistance to howling. This new tone-arm allowed A.S.T.S to increase the
resistance against the howling by over 50% compared to the normal aluminum arm.
REMOTE CONTROL
It is possible to control two turntables remotely.
1 Prepare for 3.5mm monaural phone plug cable Turn on Sync ON/OFF SW.
○
2 Connect REMOTE OUT JACK at the rear panel with another PDX-8000 REMOTE IN JACK at the rear panel by using
○
the cable.
3 The player connected at the REMOTE OUT JACK is MASTER of the PDX-8000. The player connected at the REMOTE
○
IN JACK is the Slave of the PDX-8000.
4 Pushing START/ STOP SWITCH of the master PDX-8000 will make the connection between master PDX-8000 and
○
slave PDX-8000. Then slave PDX-8000 acts the same as master PDX-8000 without touching slave PDX-8000.
Connecting the REMOTE IN JACK of third PDX-8000 with REMOTE OUT JACK of slave PDX-8000, third PDX-8000
will also act the same as master PDX-8000 It is possible to connect a fourth PDX-8000, to be controlled the same as
master PDX-8000 by REMOTE CONTROL.
