Summary: After looking at countless reviews and videos about different turntables I finally decided on the Stanton T.90 USB Turntable. I choose this turntable because of the USB and the fact that it does have a reverse button. This product is a very good beginner turntable because it is simple to use. The only negative thing about this turntable is that IT DOES NOT COME WITH ANY INSTRUCTIONS AT ALL!!!!
Summary: The turn table has a solid feel to it. I have found no problems with the turntable itself. The software that comes with it could be a little more user friendly when it comes to the transfer from LP to your computer. The product itself I have no problems with it.
Summary: I bought this unit due to the fact that it is direct drive, has a quality S-shaped tone arm, and plays 78's. I have three problems with it, though. There is no cue lever. There is no auto return at the end of a record. And the dust cover is cloth. This means the record is exposed during playback. More importantly, you have to be very careful when removing the cloth cover that it doesn't snag the stylus.
Summary: this turntable is an excellent value and performs as advertised....still having a little trouble with the software to get tracks recorded over to itunes...but through my stereo...it does the job!
Summary: Overall, I have been very satisfied with my purchase. The sound quality of the recordings has been good. My only disappointment is that I have been unable to get the system set up so that I can listen to the albums while they are being recorded. I set up everything per the instructions, to no avail. As a result I have had to resort to using the line level output to connect headphones to hear the albums while recording.
Summary: The biggest advantage of the Stanton for basic users is the ability to play 78rpm records at their intended speed, which means that you can enjoy the music while digitizing the record, also allowing feedback while the music is playing. With the Numark TTUSB Turntable with USB , which plays only 33rpm & 45rpm, you can't very well listen to a record that's playing at the wrong speed, so when you're finished, you may discover a fault in the recording in the first 15 seconds...
