    This is a great little record player! I bought this for my son a few months ago and he absolutely loves it. The speakers are quite powerful for such a little player. You can also Bluetooth music from your phone through the speakers. It’s extremely easy to use. It comes in a bunch of fun patterns and colors!

    Brings out vocals & horns loud. Lacks some bass. Needs amp bass boost for records but not for Bluetooth digital.

    I'm 24 so I'm a very beginner for record players. This one has great sound and it's super easy to use. Love the design. My friends comment on the modern look. Would recommend for anyone just looking for a simple record player.

    Good starting off point.

    For someone who just got into collecting vinyl but not too serious about high fidelity audio or just wants to have a fun way to hear music this is good. The speakers tend to fall apart at the high end of the volume setting and they don't grab highs and lows very well. And they aren't very loud. But it's fun to just sit in front of the thing and play some records. I was a bit disappointed because I thought you could use the Bluetooth to transmit sound to another source. But it can only be used as a Bluetooth speaker, like if you sync your phone to it and listen. But I have it near my TV sound bar and run those red and white audio cables to it and it sounds great. Or you can use an AUX cable to use any other speakers. As far as durability, I haven't a clue because this sits in the living room and I don't plan on taking it anywhere. It's pretty light and portable if you need to take it anywhere. Just be gentle with it like any other piece of electronic device. Obviously the sound isn't going to sound as rich as a CD even if you run it through better speakers. (I know, I know, it all depends on the quality of vinyl and from what sources the specific record was pressed from but overall) You lose a lot of bass. Even when I turn on Bass Mode on the sound bar, it's not good. but for the price I'm okay with it. I'm glad I bought it and I have so much fun using it. It's a good starting off point and maybe I'll invest in a better player in the future. But for now I'm good with this.

    Don’t buy this record player this is the second time the product arrives defective. The first time I returned it to store and re-ordered, and picked it up today. I was think this was gonna be a 1 time thing, but it came back damaged at the same spot and looked dusty. I really think they repackaged the same item and gave it back time. Will be returning ASAP

    I like this turntable because of the design. It's easy to carry and has the handle thanks to the suitcase design. Overall the sound is good and I like that it included extra needles in the box. So far so good i haven't had any issue with it. You can also connect a Bluetooth speaker to it as well.

    I was very happy with the product overall. It's easy to use and set up. I include a power adapter in the box as well. I liked that it had built-in speakers I also liked that included 3 extra needles. one attached and two extra ones. The directions were easy to follow. The player also has an auto stop switch and can connect to a Bluetooth enabled device. The Bluetooth mode allows you to use the turntables speakers to listen to music. Overall the turntable fit my needs.

    I love this record player so much! It's so easy to use and set up was very simple. I use the Bluetooth almost every day and the sounds fills my whole house from my bedroom! The camo print also adds a fun vibe to my decor.

    I’m getting back into vinyl and this player works great and I like the portability. I have connected it to my Bose speakers when I want a louder volume. This player has speakers and works well but not very loud.

    This player is a decent unit for anyone who wants to dip their toes into vinyl to make sure you want dive in. Its easy to use with not much set up. Speakers are ok but I mostly used with the RCA out to a receiver. This also could be good for someone who wants a cheap 2nd unit for outdoors. I did notice some wobble when playing "12 LPs but it did not affect playback.

    I bought it for my teenage son. I had already purchased one for my older son. I went with the tie dye because it had a better look to it for a teenager. It was also a big plus that it has built in speakers. He’s loving it so far and has already started a collection of vinyls.

    If you enjoy just listening to old records and want to bluetooth music from your Phone/Computer or tablet then this would be nice for you to grab. But for me personally, I hate this thing, i should have got the Numark PT01 usb record player. Im a sampled based producer in Los Angeles california and this thing wasn't helping me be productive at all, The rca cables in the back of the record player would send so much static that it was impossible to capture a good clean sample. but as iv'e stated before, if you just enjoy listening to music through this thing then its not a bad item at all. And i bought it because it say's it's a turntable, but the actual rotating thing that the record sits on doesn't spin all the way around in the oposit direction.

    Great little record player. My daughter has gone retro and likes vinyl now, so she takes it back and forth between home and college. Sound is decent, not great but does a good job.
