    Anyone own or ever use this?
    The vinyl cutter from Vestax?

    I've heard good and bad about it.

    all I know is that it cost about $9000 US, so I won't be buying one anytime soon

    Depending on reviews, i think it would be a solid investment, If the money was sum what available.

    It would surpass the cost of dubs in no time.(for a full time producer)

    maybe if you had a lot of disposable income it would be cool to get, but if not a cd player would get the job done just as well.

    I havn't used this but I did see a review of this in a DJ magazine about a year ago or so. $9000 sounds pretty good cause in the review last year it was quoted at 8000 brittish pounds. They said it could take audio and put it on vinyl. You can buy the blank records from vestax. It uses a saphire stylus to cut the record and these are good for about 40 record cuts (20 records) and then usually needs to be replaced ($250). As it wears down it also looses sound quality. Also they said that the records had to be painted with a laquor to keep them strong and from wearing too much. They said basicly that it would put audio on vinyl but the quality wasn't consistant and the up keep was a little much for some people.

    You have to remember that this is the first of these to come out and so probably in a few years the technology will have improved and maybe the cost will have dropped too. Id love to try one out but Im not even sure if they are available here - and the fact I dont have thousands of dollars lying around to spend on one. This is just what I read about these and if any one has actually used one they'll probably have a better opinion about them than me.

    mmmmmmm maybe someday.....

    I dunno.. considering how expensive this is, and how much trouble maintaing it is, Final Scratch seems like a better investment.

    I wrote a review of this thing in the winter issue of 'Your Time TO' magazine. I think (and hope) it's pretty informative. It's really not as bad as some reviews have made it out to be. I should know, I've used it!!!
