Marantz TT42P

Paul Caramagna, Crutchfield
24 February 2014
  • Summary: Everything about my experience with Crutchfield was smooth and a pleasure. The advice from customer support was "spot on". The product arrived exactly as promised. The Marantz turntable was packed drywall, easy to install and sounds great.

Great turntable for the money

  • Summary: Analog heaven! Fits in nicely with my receiver that has a phono input. Nothing like the warm sound of vinyl.
  • Pros: Price, easy set-up, easy to use
  • Cons: platter cushion could be better quality; have to spend more money to buy LPs I gave away years ago for CDs

MARANTZ TT42

R.F. LEONARD, Crutchfield
24 March 2010
  • Summary: First of all, let me just say, I've owned Marantz stereo gear for over 30+ yrs. And absolutely love it! But, this turntable has me a little doubtful... I bought it to replace a very good 'Stanton' turntable that i had because i wanted a new one to match my existing Marantz 'stuff'. Also, i wanted a semi-auto turntable as my Stanton was completely manual.
  • Pros: Looks and sounds nice...
  • Cons: Appears to be very cheeply made.

  • Summary: ease of use, very good , but the rest , forget it. audiophile quality, are you deaf?the platter is made of tin foil, eccentric and warped. mounted to a plastic driver. the disc is only supported at the edge, lightweight and flimsy, and sounds the same. has all the depth and integrity of a house fly, and should be swatted just the same. does not do justice to my thirty year old Marantz deck.

  • Summary: This turntable has a good tone and a good stable base. No adjustable tracking weight at the back of the tonearm is the only negative. Good buy for the money.

Marantz TT 42

Сергей Фомичев (г. С.-Петербург), click.abc.ru
24 March 2010
  • Summary: В-целом, очень симпатичная модель, выделяющаяся более качественным и реалистичным звучанием среди проигрывателей до 12 тыс. рублей. Достойно звучит с усилителями старших моделей (например, с MARANTZ PM7001). Рекомендую использовать звукосниматели не дешевле 100 долларов.
  • Pros: 1. Соотношение качество-цена. 2. Наличие звукоснимателя. 3. Отсутствие в комплекте фонокорректора.
