    I haven't had this product for very long (about 1 month). I was dissappointed that the bluetooth only works for the radio setting. I thought the bluetooth worked no matter if you were playing the radio, vinyl, or CDs. The description on the website states 'Bluetooth interface lets you wireless stream audio from compatible devices up to 33' away', and that was one of the reasons I bought it. Disappointed that I can't play vinyl records through my bluetooth speakers. In some reviews on other sites, people were not pleased with the volume. I am both pleased with the sound quality and volume. With that being said, are the speakers made to be the only sound source for a big party? No. If you have a few people over or just like to listen to some records in your room the volume is perfect. If you want more volume and some more bass, there is an axillary input to plug in speakers.

    Vintage look, feel, and sound

    Just what I was looking for, and a little more. Excellent product for the price. It does have an issue with occasional, slight skipping with vinyl. The speakers have an old school sound...warm, bass tone. The analog tuner is a very nice touch for this well built product. Don't expect modern sound or features. The turntable is very simple...no arm arm adjustment for skipping, as you would find on more modern and costly types. But it is well worth the price. I was happily surprised with the look and build, as it is not only heavy construction but every button, switch, and dial is functional...nothing just for looks, but it certainly looks great.

    the system is great so far. When I bought this for my husband for Christmas, when we open the box there was 1 of the feet missing. I contacted the manufacturer for a replacement. They said we don't have replacements, take back to the store for another one. When I went to buy this it was backordered till after Christmas, but they sent an email and said it was in. I just hope we did not get a return. My husband did not want to return it, so I guess we are one without a foot. I gave a no to recommend as I did not feel the manufacturer was very helpful. I am sure Best Buy would have been more than helpful, but I did not know how long it would be before we got a new one.

    Not a good record player

    My daughter has been wanting a record player to play all my old vinyl. I bought this as a Christmas present as well as some new records of music she likes. Everything seemed OK out of the box but it was not to be. Every album, old or new, the needle would skip across the record. I know that there is a shipping screw that needs to be turned before it will play properly. I tried everything to get it to play but no luck. Bluetooth, CD and radio worked well but we bought it mainly to play some old tunes on. A bit disappointed.

    Amazing product, is the center piece of our apt. Great sound quality. I have used it for everything so far. I love that I can play vinyls and cassette, and still have everything including the Bluetooth sounds incredible. Sound is so clear and loud at times (which I love), that my girl is always telling me to turn it down when it is not even over 50% volume on the dial. I have looked for quite some time now for a dependable multi-purpose machine and this Victrola 6 in 1 has been nothing amazing.

    After reading the specs and reviews on this turntable, we decided to take the plunge. Some had complained about the sound quality, but I was never expecting to have great sound on a small device. When it arrived, I was not surprised by the sound; it's not great, but works for my needs. It has an ambience and quality similar to an old radio. It gives it that unique, fun sound for a room. I've enjoyed having it in our front room. Friends think it's fun and I love the ability to hookup an external device through the auxiliary port. I have yet to try the bluetooth connection, though. Overall, very pleased with the purchase.

    I love this unit for several reasons. It allows me to play my LPs, some of which are from my high school days and still in perfect condition, my CDs, tapes (YES, I'm "one of those people") AND/OR listen to my favorite radio stations all in one unit that doesn't take up a lot of space and has excellent sound quality. I don't like a lot of separate components or bells & whistles that I don't understand to start with. It's SO easy to use any of it's functions and I do - a lot!

    Horrible company

    This was the ideal Christmas gift for my boyfriend then suddenly the turn table stop working. I called the customer service number and got a voicemail which has never happened before. I received a call back from a less than happy customer service rep who told me there was nothing they could do, despite the 1 year warranty they offer on the unit, and to just take it back to the store. It was bought less than month ago! I will never purchase from them again!!

    Nice design and functionality but poor audio

    Great looking unit, all functions work well and reliably but the speakers deliver a very narrow range of sound and the cabinet made of a pressed non wood material offers no acoustical help. I returned mine and am looking for a suitable compact unit I can stand to listen to. I was tempted to take the pre-amp signal into my old Marantz system but it just seemed silly. If only they had provided external speaker jacks instead, I would have added some good wide range speakers and be listening to it now. You do get what u pay for

    My husband has a large collection of cd's and records. We did not have the area to set up a large system. This Victrola give us the ability to have a system where we get great sound and quality for a fantastic price. My husband,who is recovering from a stroke, can now remember every scratch or skip in his records from the 60's and 70's. It makes us all so happy to have the great sound of music through our home.

    this system has pretty good sound quality. the cassette player works great, radio works well, but i have not yet tested bluetooth or turntable. the only problem was for me the CD player didn't work, i tried the unscratched disc and inserted it correctly trying the disc on both sides but the system flashes "CD" and doesn't play. other than my bad luck getting a defected system great product.

    Bought this to replace an older model we bought for an 87 year old lady to listen to her records. Arrived and looked great. Set it up and worked fine. Next day she called to say it wasn't working. Was returned and second one arrived promptly. Decided to set it up for her and test it. Sure enough by the sixth record it stopped working! DO NOT BUY THIS MODEL!!!!

    The Victrola is great for playing vinyl records, CD's, cassettes. The sound quality is very good. I was considering getting rid of my old vinyl records and I am so glad that I did NOT! It is really enjoyable to play the old records, and as mentioned earlier, the sound is just great. The versatility is a real bonus! The unit itself is so attractive & well made. Would highly recommend the Victrola for quality, style & versatility!

    Multifunctional but not high quality

    The main advantage for buying this is that you can use both new and old technology. I personally bought it because I was missing listening to my old vinyl and cassettes. However the overall quality is not great. The sound is mediocre and the entire thing looks quite fragile. I don't know how long is it going to last, but I will probably not use it very often either.

    I bought this record player because i wanted to listen to the difference between mp3, cd, and vinyl and there is a big difference in the sound. I bought the doors, weezer, and gunsNroses records and they sound totally amazing. This record player has many options to listen to music. I highly recommend this product.

    This is a nice unit that we bought for playing vynal records mostly and it works just fine. The FM radio seems to work ok but we haven’t tried the audio cassette deck. It is self contained and pretty much works straight out of the box with not much set up. It won’t thump your walls down but has a nice sound for what we bought it for.

    I love this! Radio, Bluetooth, Records, CD's, cassettes...the only thing missing is the 8-Track player! ALL IN ONE! It's been a blast getting out the old records and listening again. I'm inheriting my parents' collection of LP's and will have some original Elvis, Cosby, and a host of others! Great quality record player. Good sound. Doesn't take up a lot of room, but is a wonderful conversation starter!

    I have a thing for vintage items and decided to get this while it's on sale. I also wanted to start buying vinyl records and I have to say I'm happy that it can do more than just play records. CDs, Tape, Radio and even bluetooth. Item is really sturdy, clean and actually pretty light. Definitely recommend.

    Works well enough for what it is. Have had no issues with it and the bluetooth tone when connected doesn't make me want to throw it across the room (like most). Love having the versatility of so many different formats. That being said, sound quality is a bit week. Could always use Audio out to an amp and some speakers, though,
