Summary: ...because it's an absolute pile of you-know-what. Complete Fail. Quality is abysmal (so cheap looking/feeling) with a faceplate that was already peeled off on one side. It looks like it cost $1.00 to make and then they sell it for $75+. Abysmal. Directions are in Chinese-ified English.
Summary: Be sure you know what your are getting into. As a turntable, this is a great value. It sounds wonderful. I have really enjoyed to depth of sound I get from the device. However, it is totally manual. You must position the stylus over the start of the record.
Pros: Sounds Fabulous Simple Operation A Great Value
Cons: Not an automatic, but I knew that going in. Like me, you may need a preamp. My A/V receiver did not have a phone input.
Excerpt: Great little turntable, easy to use records great on usb mode it delets also. Sound is fair but I hook up my Bose portable speaker to the Pyle. I have a lot of records this is perfect for me. It's very light weight I can carry from room to room I would recommend this product to a friend.
Good entry level turntable that is state of art plastic with important features.

Summary: Good all around table for the money. Speed is constant and tracks well with the right settings and patience when setting up. Due to its lack of mass it will pick up sympathetic vibrations easily. Keep,it away from subwoofers and try different cartridges for your personal touch.
Turntable with digital recording to USB thumb drive.

Summary: Replaced my 45 year old Garrard so that I can turn LPs to CDs. Once I practiced the button sequence this does its job well. Sound quality is plenty good for me. Records in MP3 format. Have to convert for CD players. .wav works for most, but one of mine needs .cda.
seriously, a PYLE of junk. I wish I could give it 0 stars

Summary: I was really excited when this arrived - it looks nice and filled the space I had for it perfectly. Then I put that needle on the record. That is where my love affair with this piece of crap ended. This turntable has what I can confidently call the worst speakers in the history of recorded music.
Summary: This was everything i thought it would be. I actually did not read the detail good and did not realize it had an audio cable to hook up my ipod. I wish the horn was metal, but it's very nice regardless and has a good sound.
