Definitely a plus for me....I am certainly enjoying mine....So if you want a quality turntable without all the DJ functionally, I would recommend this particular turntable....I have been listening through a pair of Roland 90A studio monitors and the sound is great.A perfect balance of technology and design, the sleek contemporary lines of the AT-LP5 turntable grace any room in the home, while delivering performance features born out of Audio-Technica's rich analog heritage.

- Model: DEBUT CARBON DC RED
- SKU: 5705120
Fun to use...Great sound!...Great turntable...Clean good condition records are a must, probably will change the mat and get an anti-static brushDEBUT Carbon DC was designed to set higher standards in this category for the coming decade - perfectly timed as analog today is again a respected source, while the demand for good turntables is growing again! The most obvious improvement is the inclusion of a CARBON TUBE for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material normally is extensively used in high-end tonearms, but - because of cost reasons - was never used in products at lower price levels. Together with other improvements like an increase in platter size and weight to realize even smoother rotation, the overall sound quality is greatly improved. The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling and ultra-precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability without unwanted vibration.

Love It...Love It....I found out that both the phono preamps I had, the one built in my AV receiver (I am using my AV receiver as the preamp for a higher power amp in my system in order to drive 4 ohm electrostatic speakers.) and the one built in to the turntable did not supply a high enough output as I had to turn the volume up on the AV receiver to maximum to get it to a good listening level....Needs a better needle the sound is adequate but with a better quality needle this would be a great turntable
