Summary: I received this product shortly after Christmas and it was dead on arrival. Never did work. Had to send it back for a replacement and then this company gave me my money back . Now I still don't have a turntable!
Summary: I've only had this thing two weeks...and it's been frustrating. Whoever designed the software should be fired for incompetence. Why would you design a product that records vinyl to hard drive without giving one the ability to listen while recording? A Sony 'help' person told me it wasn't designed to do that! So, you have to guess when to flip over the record or pause between tracks or only record certain tracks.
Excerpt: I getting a high shrill hum when connected to my HK 3485 Harman/Kardon receiver. That is a big negative, because it is in the recordings, too. The overall hookup to USB works fine when I disconnect from the receiver, but that leaves me with lower quality speakers on the PC.
Summary: I spent hours trying to get the audio to play through the computer speakers. It all boiled down to incorrect information in the "install guide" of all things. The default playblack device on the software has the incorrect setting listed for the audio tab. I'll never get those 5 hours back....
Summary: The turntable arrived looking like it was in good condition. We set it up and it did not work. It was completely dead - no power to the system. Took it back to the store and exchanged it for another one that worked great.
