Excerpt: It included all parts and instructions. This was something that I was a bit worried about reading the reviews. I was very pleased with how easy it was to set up. The mat required some trimming to fit on the post, but no big deal. The sound is amazing for the price of the table. I didn't care one little bit about converting anything to digital (don't see the point of taking great sound and digitizing it) so I have to admit I haven't messed with that side of things.
Pros: Consistent, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Professional Features
Excerpt: Skip the included MixMeister software (EZ Vinyl/Audio Converter); use Audacity instead. You can produce some very nice MP3s at 320 kbps in no time. Using Windows Vista, I could not monitor the record I was playing through my speakers with the MixMeister software, but Audacity proved to be powerful & flexible after just a few clicks in the preferences.
Excerpt: the TTusb is very Easy to setup in about 5 min it does not need to install any drives so you could take it to any computer and not the to install any softwere the sound is very good they should add a dust Cover Its the best turntable for the price.
Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, No drivers needed, Professional Features
Summary: Super easy set up. Interesting Audacity software which comes with it. I love the line out/phono out option. I can just plug it in & enjoy my LP's without having to do any recording or anything.
Having the 'gain' on the turntable is great - higher for just listening & lower for recording. Lots of control to get the best sound wherever.
I'm quite happy with it & I'm sure it will be even better as I learn all the options with the software.
