Vinyl audio has authenticity that digital can’t compete with, but you can’t argue with the convenience of modern wireless speakers either. With the Insignia NS-BTST21 Bluetooth Stereo Turntable, you can enjoy old school music using the latest technology. The turntable’s manual belt-drive design plays your 33-1/3 and 45 rpm 12-inch records. Its adjustable counterweight and magnet cartridge provide reliable tracking and a rich sound that help you lose yourself in the music. Connect a Bluetooth speaker wirelessly to make your music portable, or plug in your tried-and-true wired speakers with one simple connection. After your record is done playing, the turntable will turn off automatically and the detachable cover shields your turntable when it’s not in use. Music holds a lot of memories, and it can also create new ones. Make them count with this Insignia Bluetooth turntable.

A:AnswerNo, not if you use powered speakers--it has an integrated amplifier. If you do not use powered speakers, you must run the signal from the turntable through a receiver or amplifier setup to the speakers. Hope this helps.
A:AnswerMake sure you took off the needle guard. If you did that, you may need to adjust the tracking force on the other end of the arm so that it presses down more onto the record. Do it just enough so that it plays the record and maybe a little more so it doesn't skip but do NOT just turn it to apply max pressure because that can damage the records when it plays. If you are unsure of how any of that works, I suggest you look up a Youtube review of this turntable, the first result should show you how to adjust it (Note, you don't NEED a scale, just keep slowly adjusting it)
