Features, sound, quality, value. Whats not to love
Posted . Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.
I purchased based on multiple positive reviews and was not disappointed. Plays well and sounds fantastic when hooked to my receiver. My receiver does not have a dedicated "phono" slot, so I just used the CD one instead, since I never use CD's anymore. Works fine. Put the whole setup on my desk, as shown in pictures with this review.
This is not a bluetooth version, which is fine, as I just connected directly to my receiver as shown in the photo. Be sure to have some headphones to bring out the sound correctly.
I especially like the automatic button control that is missing from the more expensive Audio Technica turntable. Just push a button to either stop or start and the unit returns the tone arm once album complete. Also has a separate button raise and lower the tone arm to stop and start as well as place anywhere on the record and lower safely.
Note that this plays 33 and 45 speed but not 78, in case you want to play very old vintage records (which I don't).
Its been years since I have listened to music with "cracks" and "scratches" inherent in old records and I love it!
Don't let the low price scare you. This is a quality machine and super easy to use. Plays well with no adjustments needed.
I love this record table. Great value for the money. Please buy this instead of a crosley I’ve had no issues. I plug it to my jbl speaker with an auxiliary cord and it’s sounds amazing. It’s super easy to use as well.
I absolutely love this turntable it is very high-quality premium and easy to use. I originally bought one of those suitcase turntables or should I say record players and let me just tell you do not buy the suitcase turntables spend the extra money and get this turntable the sound quality is amazing you get premium features and it’s made out of premium materials you will not regret buying this turntable. I do want to mention that this turntable does not come with speakers built-in so you’ll have to buy some separately or hook it up to your existing sound system like I did! Now right out of the box it sounded terrible just like the suitcase record players but I had it on the wrong setting because it was set to that setting out of the box but once I got it to the right setting for the connections that I had it sounded amazing so just wanted to let you know if it doesn’t sound good at first make sure you have it on the right setting!
A:AnswerIf you already own passive type speakers, you will need to install a stereo receiver or amplifier between the turntable and the speakers. Receivers and Amplifier have a POWER amplifier inside to amplify connected sources, such as a turntable, up to a level that can adequately drive the speakers. Another option would be to use POWERED (aka active) type speakers. Powered speakers have their own power amplifier built into them so there is no need for a separate stereo receiver or amplifier. Due to the inclusion of a phono preamplifier in the turntable, the turntable may be connected to devices that either do or do not have a dedicated PHONO input for a turntable. A phono preamplifier raises the phono level signal from a turntable (which is very weak) to a stronger line level signal (such as that which you get from a CD Player) so it can drive the preamplifier section of a receiver, amplifier or powered speaker, then the preamplifier drives the power amplifier. Its all about gain staging so that, in the end, you have a good signal to noise ratio. A phono preamplifier also applies the RIAA equalization curve which is required for the playback of records.
A:AnswerThere is no stylus pressure or anti-skate adjustment function on this model. Those functions are all automatically controlled by this model. If you want those functions, check Audio Technica's other turntable models.
A:AnswerYou do not need an additional amplifier. Turn the phono preamplifier located inside the turntable ON by placing the preamp selector switch located on the rear of the turntable in the LINE position, then connect the turntables red and white RCA male plugs to either the SA-CD/CD, BD/DVD, SAT/CAT, or TV Audio In jacks on the rear of your receiver.
