Summary: Great budget turntable. I don't really know exact turntable terminology... but here it goes: the chassis is rock solid, but the tonearm looks a bit cheap. The platter looks okay, until you turn it up to 45rpm, and it starts to look a little bit off-center. I haven't had run into any problems with this though- the platter may be off a little bit, but that seems to be fine, as long as the record itself isn't.
Summary: I bought this turntable several years ago and this is a turntable of excellent value! Never had any problems with it whatsoever. The only thing that keeps this turntable a rating of 5 or more is the design....it is FULLY MANUAL and so when the record is finished playing you have to lift the needle up yourself;therefore, it would have been better if it were at least semi-automatic, huh?
Summary: The Sony PS LX350H is a good entry point into the "retro" world of good sounding vinyl if you're tired of somewhat "mechanical" and less than "open" sounding CD's and other digital formats. This turntable is TOTALLY manual! Cool if you don't mind "tweaking" the 'table every so often. The unit itself is pretty heavy-about 15 pounds-and very solid-what you want for full sounding analog.
Summary: Purchased a Sony PS-LX350H to replace 25 year-old Technics belt drive turntable. The Sony appears to be one of the few Reasonably High Quality options for an Audio (as opposed to "DJ") turntable in the sub-$200 (or even sub-$300) price range. If it runs as long as the Technics, will be quite a buy - for now this must be considered a "preliminary" report(!).
