Excerpt: This is not for your home theater. The key word here is portable, and the PT01 is very very light, easy to carry, and works like a charm in tight conditions. I use it to preview records in tiny little nooks of West Africa, so this was perfect.
Excerpt: One of my greatest mistakes that I made recently is to purchase NUMARK PT01 item. I have few hundred of LP, EP and SP records so that I really wanted to convert into digital files for all of them and pt01 was so fascinating for me.
Excerpt: Unfortunately the unit I received has the same problems others reported, with the playback speed varying as you're playing a record. There is a +/- knob but it doesn't fix the variable speed issue.
Excerpt: Besides the disappointingly flimsy stylus, I received a defective player (uneven platter, would not play full sized LP at correct speed). I tried to contact Numark/Ion over the matter (still under warranty), but only received one response then none at all after I requested a return authorization.
Excerpt: Product feels cheap and flimsy, especially the stylus. Would not play large LPs properly because of uneven platter. Tried to have Numark/Ion stand by their warranty, but they would not respond to email in a timely manner or respond by phone.
