Lauren, ABT Electronics
8 November 2011
  • Summary: Looks like a good quality product, however, could not set up because we only have Apple computers in our house. Directions that came with the unit say its compatible with Windows.

Great Idea/Dumb Execution

Anonymous, ABT Electronics
29 January 2010
  • 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.

Not All Install Guides Are Created Equal

Cosmo, ABT Electronics
17 October 2009
  • 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....

Spins fast

Lorene Shyba, Amazon
30 August 2014
  • Summary: This turntable runs about 5% too fast and there isn't a mechanism to change this. If you get this turntable and it runs fast, you can fix in the software mix when recording vinyl.

Arrived broken

CK, FutureShop
21 February 2013
  • 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.

OK turntable, buggy software

eastavin, FutureShop
31 January 2012
  • Summary: Turntable works ok via RCA jacks and almost OK via USB port. Meaning that the Turntable USB signal is processed by my Windows XP computer (all microsoft updates installed) for recording however despite following every instruction step in the Sony manual will not play the monitor signal through the speakers so I can listen to what is being recorded. I was ready to discount that and say so what...

Caveat Mac owners

caviartothegeneral, FutureShop
4 November 2009
  • Summary: The description says includes all necessary software to optimize the sound and convert to MP3 format, but this is not true for Mac owners -- the software is Sony's Sound Forge, which does not run on a Mac unless it's a Pentium running Parallels. Also, the RCA cables are built in and really short, so be prepared to buy extensions unless you want to set it up right on top of the amp.

Plattenspieler in einfachster Ausführung

Frühstücksdirektor "ranieri42", Amazon
19 November 2011
  • Summary: Der Sony PS-LX 300 USB wird sowohl unter Windows XP als auch unter Linux (Ubuntu 10 und 11) als USB-Audioquelle erkannt, ohne das Treiber installiert werden müssen. Die mitgelieferte Software ist zweckmäßig, die Bedienungsanleitung gut verständlich. Das Gerät funktioniert unter beiden Betriebssystemen auch mit der Freeware Audacity, die funktional umfangreicher ist als die Sony-Software.

Guter Klang, schlechte A-D-Wandlung

Thomas Kretschmer, Amazon
30 July 2011
  • Summary: Wie immer waren der Kauf, die Lieferung und auch die Rücksendung bei Amazon problemlos. Das Gerät selber erfreute zunächst durch einen guten Klang über meine zwar alte, aber gute Stereoanlage. Leider traten bei der Umwandlung in .wav Dateien über den USB-Anschluss so starke Nebengeräusche auf (die beim analogen Anhören nicht zu hören waren), dass diese selbst durch die mitgelieferte Bearbeitungssoftware nicht zu korrigieren waren.
