Vestax announce Handy Trax portable turntable!
Wednesday, August 28, 2002
Years ago, when vinyl was by far the most popular commercial format, a portable turntable was the life of any party.
Battery powered, amplified, and with it's own built in speaker, 7", 10" and 12" records could be played anywhere - 33's, 45's and 78's.
Those few units that survived the advent of the portable tape players & hi-fi shelf systems, post-storage battery leakage and even the rubbish tip have been snapped up by the new generation of vinyl pursits. These days, they are a very rare find at any Sunday market.
DJ's love collecting vinyl. Artists like DJ Shadow and The Avalanches, whose inclusion of samples of older tracks in their acclaimed releases have made the search for older vinyl even more popular. But there's no way to listen to tracks down at the local op shop....
Until now. The Vestax Handy Trax has features for DJ's included on a turntable styled on the classics. Pitch control, headphone output, replaceable stylus, built in speaker with volume control - and even a line input for mixing in external sources. And it's portable.
Now you can play records when and where you want. Connect two together and you can start mixing anywhere.
Vestax brings complete vinyl freedom to the modern DJ.
The revolutionary Vestax Handy Trax is due in December 2002 at the RRP price of only $399 inc GST.
