Summary: the sound is suprisngly good but i used the preamp on my reciever instead of the one built in.
speed is abit off on this but not bad.
you will instantly tell if you like the sound of vinyl more than cd. if you do, join the club!
Summary: I started buying records a few years ago to hang up on the wall but recently decided that I wanted to start listening to them. A friend had this record player at his house and I really enjoyed it and wanted one of my own. For being a Sony product, this is definitely a great price. The records sound great and this machine is simple to set up and use.
Summary: I got this record player from a friend who wasn't using it any longer. It's a great player, and the built-in pre-amp is great. My player, however, was playing slowly, so I got a new belt, and it was still slow. I went to a local record shop and he said it could cost me as much as the player for him to figure out what was wrong and fix it. He then said it was probably a slippery slope and it will just break more even if I did fix it.
Summary: Good basic turntable. Can be started by push button, but I prefer manually placing the needle on the record. Very easy to hook up, like the dust cover better than the clear plastic on my old one.
