Summary: it came quickly and it works. only complaint is that maybe you should make sure that 'fragile' is on the box because Fedex dropped it over our back gate to deliver it but luckily it functions fine.
Summary: I ordered a blemished unit for a good chunk off and it arrived super quick but packaged very poorly inside with all the accessories just bouncing around. Customer service was exceptional at getting me out another unit. I hooked it up last night and have to say it is a solid, heavy, & well built turntable. I for one don't believe that records sound better than CD's but I have a lot of both.
Summary: This is an excellent turntable for the price. I would give it 5 stars if it was Made In USA. It is Made In China and China has no quality control. It also comes with a DC motor and an American Made AC motor would make this THE top turntable. A DC motor doesn't last as long as an AC motor (turntables from yesteryear have AC motors and most of them last 30+ years. So with the cons out of the way, on to the pros. For a plastic TT this thing is a tank.
Summary: These turntables are well worth the money. I have a pair of these and love them. I use technics from time to time and these perform just as well. The torque is great for scratching. I don't use the preamp as I use it with serato and timecodes. I haven't had any issue. I did upgrade slipmats as well as the cartridges to shure 44-7s. The sound quality is just as good as the technics. I would recommend these to anyone!!!
Summary: Audio Technica always has been at the top of there game and as a dj I highly recommend these turntables to anyone looking for something cheap and reliable I had them for 3 months and It just keeps wowing me I search and search for a imperfection but cant find it.
Summary: I have been enjoying the heck out of this turntable for the past 3 months and I am very impressed. I grew up with the typical cheesey all in one systems that we all owned who grew up in the 70's-80's and I must say that this is much better by far. I thought that this would be a let down from my Music Hall 5 but I was wrong, it can perform and then some. Has plenty of bells and whistles which make it look really cool.
Summary: the original version made in Europe years ago likely would have been a product i would be willing to own. This machine is a pale imitation of the past very difficult to calibrate, anti skid setting did not work buy the less expensive version much better value
