Great product.
Pros: Easy To Install,Fast,Powerful,Great Value,Easy To Navigate

This controller is used in small gigs and works perfect. I also use this at home when i want to create mixes and dont want to lug out the turntables. Great product overall..take care of it, and it will take care of you.

Amazing Controller!!!
Pros: Great Value,Powerful,Easy To Navigate,Fast,Easy To Install
Cons: Mic latency

Used in the home studio and in club gigs, so versitile and fits nice in my laptop bag ;) Set up was easy and using both Traktor & VDJ in a 64 bit Windows 7 environment wasn't an issue either! I have the Intel Core I3 processor that wasn't supported at the time of purchase and it works like a champ ;) Thank you PSSL for the price match [...] Customer/PSSL Promoter for life, two thumbs way up :)

Great deal !

Simple, straight and too the point
Pros: Great Value,Easy To Install,Easy To Navigate,Fun to use

Was looking for a backup controller to add to my current DJ gear, needed something lightweight affordable and fun to use when I'm out doing a kids party or in the yard for backyard BBQ'n. It wouldn't make sense to setup my TT or CDJs and mixer for just having a few hours of fun with family and friends. With the Vestax Typhoo, a set of powered speakers and laptop you let the fun begin.
November 27, 2014
A really nice interface
Pros: Easy To Install,Great Value,Easy To Navigate
Cons: Slows Down System

I really like the Vestax Typhoon. I was using Serato for a few years but got tired of lugging turntables to gigs, so this is a great alternative. My only complaint is that the included Traktor LE software is not as detailed and intuitive as I got use to with Serato Scratch. I think once I upgrade to Traktor 3 I'll be pleased. The Typhoon is a really nice piece of equipment and does exactly what I expected it to.

Pros: Cool colors,Good sound,Fast,Great Value
Cons: Hard To Install or Upgrade,Took to long to get to me

I used my Vestax typhoon out at the bars and clubs in my area. worked like a champ. never had any hard to deal with issues with the equipment. any trouble I did have was easily solved by PSSL and Vestax. Thanks for all the help. I recently had a house fire I have been thinking about the equipment I have to purchase now to get back on my feet and you better believe PSSL will be able to help with all my Vestax, Pioneer, Techniques, Monster, makie, Mac, Rolands, Korg, Cerwin Vagas, Bose and all my other favorite brands of Equipment. thanks for the all the help in the furthering of my career.

Good for the price, wont last forever
Pros: Easy To Install,Good for beginners,Great Value,Easy To Navigate
Cons: Broke after 6 months

It's a great mixer to learn on, and a great deal for the price, although my crossfader is beginning to break after 6 months of continuous use. On the left side it will sometimes not sense it correctly unless i push up on it while i am moving it.

Vestax Typhoon/Spin
Pros: Easy To Navigate,Easy To Install,Great Value
Cons: Limited effects,Hardware limitations,Design

This product is great for its portability. It is somewhat lacking in controls and there is no comparison between digital scratching versus vinyl. It is fun to play around with and serves as a great entry level controller as the set up is easy and it is easy to operate.
