    RCA Audio Cable too Short

    Posted

    I haven't been able to use the turntable yet because the RCA audio cables that come with the unit are too short (24 inches) and do not detach. Unless your turntable is placed on top of your receiver, you can't plug the unit into the receiver. If your receiver has ventilation slots on the top, then you have to place your turntable elsewhere. Because of the limitation, you have to buy an RCA female-to-male extension cable.

    Good value for its cost especially because it has both audio connectors and a USB port; only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because the length of the audio cables are too short and cannot be detached from the turntable; I had to buy cable connectors to be able to extend the length of the cables.

    got it for $79. Set up was a breeze, the wire is a bit small but I could make it work.

    I bought this turntable for someone else as a gift. I installed and tried it out. It was quite easy to setup. The sound quality is good. The usb cable is a little bit short. It is not easy to connect to a computer without an usb extension cable. In general, it is a good buy (best buy at this price point probably).

    The phono player is a good value. The software that comes with allows transferring your digitally record your albums. My one negative is the output cables are fixed length and too short.

    Appears to be a good basic unit. Only deducted a star due to the audio out cables being hardwired and short. They are ok if you set the turntable on top a receiver amp, but if your powered speakers or receiver are more than two feet away, the cables are too short so you have to use an additional cable as an extension as well as a set of RCA female-female adapters.

    Good overall turntable. Cables too short forcing me to buy a coupler to join to better cables connecting to receiver.

    I have been playing the turntable almost daily and can really say that within its price range it pretty much can't be beat. The little assembly that is required is rather simple and straight forward. The only negative is that the cables to connect to the turntable are permanently fixed to the turntable and are rather short so you must install pretty close to receiver.

    I bought this turntable to listen to some old albums I found in my aunt's basement. They're all from the 70's or early and sound like new. My only problem with it is that the RCA audio cable is really short and you can't replace it with a longer cable.

    I wanted a turntable that gave me quality sound production and it does just that. My only problem is that the speaker output cables are RCA, and I have nice speakers with a subwoofer that don't use RCA connection anymore. I purchased a female-to-female RCA-3.5mm converter and it allows me to connect the player to speakers with an aux cable. It works great for me.

    I purchased this turntable for my husband's birthday to add to our other Sony components, it is a great turntable for the price! The only thing I don't like is the cord to plug into the receiver is really short! The other feature we haven't used yet is recording audio tracks on the computer. We really wanted the turntable to listen to vinyl again, great sound! Love it!

    I wanted to replace my turntable and when I saw this one that not only connected to my stereo system but also could connect directly to my computer I knew it was what I wanted. The reviews were good so I ordered it. It's great to be able to listen to my old vinyl again and also to transfer to my computer so I can make CD copies. The cable provided was too short to reach from the turntable to my computer so I had to order a longer one. The provided software doesn't seem to be compatible with Windows 10 but I have another program on my computer anyway. Other people interested may want to keep that in mind.

    I bought this record player simply to play the vinyl I collect, and because I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars more on something else. It was very simple to set up, it sounds and works great. The only two things that are a minor inconvenience is that the cord is a little short, and a needle replacement was a little hard to find, but I found one. If you are looking for one, you can find one on LPGear.com. It's about 30 bucks, so it's kind of spendy. Just don't be stupid like me and hit the play button by accident so it plays all night and wears down the needle lol. So overall, this product is great and I would recommend it to anyone just looking to listen to some vinyl.

    Just getting back into vinyl. This had good reviews and was cheaper than most. It works very well and sounds great. Only two criticisms. The a/v cord in back is very short and does not detach. I suppose I could bridge it with another cord. Also I remember back in the day you could stack a bunch of records on the post and listen for hours. This model does not have that feature. I'm sure these features cost more so I'm happy with this beginner player for now.

    Missing ground

    I bought this turntable to replace my 30 year old turntable and to digitize my vinyl. As a turntable it works well when connected to the "line out" jacks. When connected to my amp with the phono cables there is a bad hum. Sony support says to connect the separate ground wire to eliminate the hum but this model has no ground wire or any place to connect one. I gave up on Sony's on line support. I would prefer to use the phono jack and not have to use one of my aux inputs on my amp. The software included is easy to use and will clean up some pops, clicks, and scratches but not all. Overall I am happy with the turntable except for the hum. Eliminating the ground wire is unforgivable. I would not recommed this turntable anyone who would expect to connect it to the phono jack on their AV system
