Info
the VRX-2000 allows experienced professional users the ability to easily and accurately produce classic vinyl with acoustic warmth and a durable quality similar to that of commercially cut vinyl.
The VRX-2000 is a professional level recording device designed for those with knowledge of mastering and music production.
Individual users will need purposeful training and practice in order to produce perfect professional quality recordings on a regular basis




Features
  • Records in real time from any external sound source fed through either a power amp or mixer, by cutting onto special Vestax vinyl blanks at speeds of 33 1/3 and 45 rpm.
  • Cut at 33 1/3, each vinyl blank has a total playing time of between 26 and 30 minutes.
  • Recorded properly, the superb sound and individual warmth of each take/track ?is more than durable enough to handle repeated playing and even scratching.
  • Each production is able to be played back instantly through the onboard ASTS tone-arm.
  • VU Meter(s) and Input Level adjust.

To produce fine recordings on the VRX-2000 will require close scrutiny of the input level(s). Wide frequency dispersion left unadjusted may result in a damaged cutting head or a bad sounding cut.

It's a laquer, which means it isnt really vinyl, but wax (yes real wax, the candles shit) After playing the record 15 - 20 times the grooves have widened up so much, that you won't get good audio anymore. Ofcourse, you've never had REAL good audio, because the frequencies it records are limited to 12.000 hz. Not really much.

The best thing to do is te have someone else press your REAL record, it might cost a bit, but mostly it's worth it!

Nah.. you also get 100 records, and 4 heads when you buy it.. so it can save smaller companies time and effort.. or at least get them started

Way to much money for that crap, if you really want to press your own vinyl, you should look out for something better

vinyl is supposed to be pressed with a mall

these wax vinyls are not meant to be played alot, just as an example to press them om pvc
