The Vestax HMX-05 Professional DJ Headphones are now in the DJbooth.net lab for a full HD-Video and written review. The new Vestax HMX-05 headphones have the familiar Vestax "Red and Black" color scheme, a detachable pro-grade cable, 40mm Bass-Heavy drivers, and they can fold up nicely so DJ's can take them on the road easily. We'll test them out and let DJ's know how they compare to other headphones on the market, but check out our First Impressions & Unboxing video after the jump.
DJ S-TRIX was in the house at the Vestax DJ Booth in Frankfurt, Germany for the Musikmesse 2013 show two weeks ago. Not only was he on-hand in the show booth, but he was in the actual DJbooth putting it down something serious on two Vestax PDX-3000 turntables and the Vestax PMC-05ProIV mixer. Check out his crazy-sick set for this week's Turntablist Video Friday feature after the jump.
The Vestax VCI-400 Digital DJ controller can now be purchased with the full Serato DJ software already bundled and ready to go. Vestax has now officially announced the Vestax VCI-400DJ which, not only comes with Serato DJ, but also dawns a new color scheme and skin which have commands and features that correspond to the features found in the new software. I liked the VCI-400 so much that I kept my review unit and even upgraded the crossfader to the scratch-happy CF-X2. The perfect Serato DJ integration is yet another reason for people to take a good look at the VCI-400 if they are in the market for a new DJ controller. Check out the full press release inside.
In my latest DIY Video, I'm showing the masses how they can install a Traktor/Serato DVS soundcard inside of your favorite mixer for a nicely updated and compact setup. Some new mixers on the market today come with a DVS soundcard already installed (Traktor Z2, Pioneer DJM-T1, Rane Sixty-One) so that the user only has to connect their CD or vinyl timecode decks directly into the RCA inputs for a plug-and-play solution. I installed a Traktor A4 inside of the Korg KM-202 & a Traktor A6 inside of the Vestax PMC-05ProIV. Check out the writeup & video inside to see how it's done.
