02 Aug Vestax $10,000 Audiophile DJ mixer from is now available to order
Vestax’s latest mixer, the Phoenix (Hou-ou) which was initially announced in 2016 is now officially available to order.
The fully-analog device features 4 channels, which support 3 phono inputs and 9 line inputs, with an independent MIC channel, separated AUX stereo send-return function and master loop function. Each channel boasts a VU meter, including left and right meters for the master channel, which according to Vestax is “for ease of accurate level matching.” Additionally, the Hou-ou includes a phono direct-out jack, which means you don’t have to replace the turntable cable when connecting the mixer.
These features may seem relatively straightforward, but what makes this mixer so expensive and exceptionally high quality is the fact that every component is carefully designed and built from hand. Vestax has shared that the model is “made in Japan to the highest quality manufacturing, technology, and quality-control standards.”
The Phoenix (Hou-ou) retails for $10,000 plus shipping. Head here for more info.
