Marantz TT42P Turntable

Michael B, Crutchfield
24 February 2014
  • Summary: I went shopping for a turntable after my trusty old Dual 1228 automatic died after 39 years. Since I am an an "old school" audiophile, I was in for quite an awakening: the new turntables are not like the old ones. They are made primarily for downloading music to digital sources and look flimsy and cheap, and are so-so for listening to vinyl albums. After careful research, I came across the TT42P.
  • Pros: The shipment arrived in 3 business days, great Crutchfield service and price, The turntable is very beautiful & stylish - compliments my other components, After reading the instructions - Easy set up; remove 2 shipping clips, put the platter on, and put the hinges on for the dust cover. It takes 15 minutes tops... No setting of any counterweight, Anti-skate controls - plug it in and play...
  • Cons: Platter is VERY light (for us "old heads" who are used to massive, heavy platters), The power plug/adapter head is larger than usual and may not plug into the back of some receivers due to it's size.

Paul Caramagna, Crutchfield

  • 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.
