The Vestax PDX-3000MIX Turntable are their flagship, professional models designed for fixed installation in venue DJ booths, professional touring applications and serious home DJs. The turntable is built rugged and the direct-drive motor design ensures stability, quick starts / stops and flexible pitch adjustment features. Standard and ultra-pitch controls are featured for consistent, aggressive pitch handling between +/- 50%. Adjustable break speeds are featured and the RPMs may be synchronized with external MIDI devices. The PDX-3000MIX features strong insulators for reducing howling and vibration noise.

Adjustable tone arm base
The arm base of the PDX 3000mix is constructed with a rubber cushioning to absorb unneeded vibrations which come from the body. This rubber cushioning is also applied to protect the body from feedback.
Ideally, the tone arm height should be adjusted so that it is horizontal to the vinyl. Although, certain DJs (especially turntablists) will set the arm base to a higher position and add more needle pressure so the needle doesn't skip in any condition. The tone arm base of the PDX-3000mix is adjustable to the DJs preference.
The PDX-3000mix's direct drive DC motor has powerful torque and reaches a constant speed rate within 0.5 seconds from pushing the start/stop button. An extremely precise regulator is required to accurately control such a motor, and with the PDX-3000mix it is digitally (32bit CPU) controlled with a digital servo. This servo keeps the motor rotating no matter how heavily the pitch is changed, reverse button is pushed or the platter is pulled back. The platter completely obeys the motors movement by having it screwed down to the spindle of the motor.
Strong Body Material
The ultra strong foamed ABS plastic that constructs the body is advanced in durability, strong against feed back and is highly resistant to impact.
Air Suspension Insulators
The insulators (the feet) are filled with rubber for absorbing shock, and have airspace inside for better feedback absorbent.
