Summary: I purchased this unit as a present for my parents. They have some older albums and wanted to listen to them. Their original turntable is long gone and they no longer use their stereo. I wanted a stand alone unit that would be easy for them to use. I tried the unit when I received it and was pleasantly surprised by the sound quality.
Summary: I have talked to so many friends and family who simply want to start listening to records, without investing a lot in a turntable setup. The Jensen JTA 220 is a cheap all-in-one answer that works right out of the box. The built-in speakers leave much to be desired, but using the player with external speakers or headphones provides an acceptable sound quality for the casual music listener.
