Vestax, best known for its DJ turntables, looks set to be resurrected in 2016, with the company's founder promising a new range of products, including a turntable, mixer and amplifiers.
The first product will be a DJ mixer, followed by "a range of new acoustic products such as a power amplifier, signal devices, turntable, SP system, and pre-amplifiers".
But if you're hoping for a Technics-style revival, you may be disappointed. Shiino says, "I plan to produce limited quantities (10-20 per month) for direct sale to end-users."
