The VRX-2000 vinyl cutting machine can give you superb results in the making of long-lasting vinyl records. To achieve such results, please remember that the mastering process of vinyl records requires skill and a basic understanding of complicated audio waveforms. Cutting vinyl from a cassette-based multi-track recording or a stereo cassette recorder should prove to be straight forward, as the frequency response of cassette-based music is not as intense as that of a CD. Cutting from professionally mastered CDs that have good equalization and compression should also give excellent results. However, recording from some CDs (for example, CDs from home studio set-ups) may provide difficulties. This is due to the fact that these recordings sometimes have very wide frequency ranges, and have not been prepared professionally for mass-production or broadcast. Please study and understand compressors and limiters and how to use equalizers to get the best result from your Vestax VRX-2000. view full description »

The VRX-2000 head frequency equalisation is equipped 3 Band EQ. The manner by which the cutting head reacts to various frequencies will affect the final output. Basically, the cutting head is like a very small yet powerful speaker when it reacts to various s ound frequencies. Extreme frequencies will cause it to move rathers everely, with that movement being further reflected in the sound recorded. The Vestax VRX-2000, however, utilizes a standard graphic EQ system to compensate for extreme incoming signal curves. This system is aurally difficult and requires hours of practice and experimentation to get it perfect over and over again. The cutting head has 2 magnetic drivers separated by a 90 degree angle creating a V shape. This layout is optimum for stereo signal recording with the best possible channel separation, and best balance.

The special blank vinyl for the VRX-2000 has a similar durability of commercial vinyl, but a record cut in improper circumstances/condition may have less durability than usual. The life of the cutting stylus is approximately between 200-300 minutes (depending on the cutting pressure used and the level of stylus heat). Vestax VRX-2000 has a built-in limiter bypass switch: turns the internal compressor limiter ON or OFF. Must always be in on position unless external compressor limiter devices are used in the cutting process. Input level select switch: adjusts the input gain +4dB / 0dB/ -10dB and Phono level output jacks: standard RCA L/R output jacks for playback. On rear side of Vestax VRX-2000 are placed connectors: XLR balanced left/right audio input and unbalanced audio input standard L/R RCA sockets and ground terminal.

infoidea Tip: this Vestax premium vintage product will be refurbished, with standard 1 year warranty.
