Summary: This is a very good deal. Even if fully manual. Heavy duty and replacement cartridges available as well as stylus. Well packed and shipped.
Pros: Direct drive with quartz lock. Various features to play on a stereo with or without a phono input. Hooks to any computer to record all your vinyl. Very heavy which reduces vibration feedback and handy dust cover.
Cons: I knew this when buying it, but it is fully manual operation. So if you don't want to move the tone arm a lot with the record, then don't buy it.
Excerpt: Just the perfect product if you wanna go back to the real crispy easy listening sound of a vinyl record. This is labelled as a professional DJ product. But it is perfect for listening to your old and new records. Outstanding!
Excerpt: This turntable works great for digitizing your vinyl collection. Before buying it I spent a lot of time researching this turntable model and found that it appeared in the top 5 or 10 best value ratings under $500.00 for a turntable in just about every review I read. It meets or exceeds what I expected. The turntable was easy to set up and I recommend watching the video at the Audio-Technica website before setting yours up.
Pros: Consistent, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Professional Features, Versatile
Excerpt: Arrived on time and in seemingly perfect condition. Easy to set up. Included cartridge sounds good enough to me. Platter appears to be flat. Have not yet used built-in preamp or the USB function; but I have been enjoying listening to my old records.
