Summary: I wanted a direct drive turntable, and that's how JR has this one categorized. It is belt driven! But I've been using it and it works well.It uses Audacity software,[@] instead of the one on the CD-ROM.Shortcomings: No automation, you have to move the tonearm yourself. There isn't even a cue lever.Also, there is no dust cover to protect the platter or any record that may be in place. The manual recommends 3-5 grams of pressure for playback, which is rather high.
Summary: After my old turntable broke, I could not decide whether to buy an antique or something more 21st century. I opted for the new technology, and was pleasantly surprised. When I hooked the turntable up to my speaker system the sound was clear, and even the sound when playing through my computer is good. The software seems fairly easy to use. Very happy so far!
Summary: This turntable works pretty well, I have a Mac so it was basically plug and play. I used to have to hook up a mixer and another turntable to get my vinyl xfered. The sound quality is great, nice and loud and clear. I didn't have any hum as some of the reviewers said. Every once and awhile i get a feedback type sound but unplugging it and re-plugging it fixes that. The only complaint is that it doesn't come with a cover.
Summary: This product works very well. The only issue I have is that you have to remember to lift the arm when the record is over. It does not have an auto lift, so you can't walk away from it for very long without risking needle damage. Also, the signal is very low and a preamp is needed. If you don't already have one, don't buy this product without buying something to power the signal. Otherwise, I am very happy with this investment.
Summary: When I heard about this product I could hardly wait to get one. I have over 400 albums that I hardly heard anymore because I spend a lot of time in my car. No more!! Not only do I get to rediscover all the great music, but now I can continue to listen to it wherever I go with my MP3 plyer or cd player. The product is easy to use and with the included software, you can enhance the sound to fit your taste. The only negative is that it could use a dust cover.
