This was a great purchase. My brother loves his vinyl collection and the majority of those on the market these days - when you can find them - either are cheap, and cheaply made, or else very high end and expensive. This turntable was at the perfect price point and is a high quality item. My bro is thrilled with it and is really enjoying his LPs again.
I needed a new turntable to replace an old Dual 1228. I also have about 1000 LPs that I wanted to convert to digital for use in the modern age. This turntable is top quality and the included cartridge is good quality and is easily upgraded if desired. The turntable is also made to be portable so moving from stereo system to computer is not an issue. Additionally, converting with this turntable and Audacity is simple, with a very short learning curve to make excellent quality digital tracks. Even some of my old records originally played on a $50 GE record player could be cleaned up to a reasonably good quality. The most time consuming part of the conversion process is adding track labels and deleting pauses. As for recording you just play the LP and record with Audacity, and use the "Monitor" feature to listen as it records. I record multiple LPs while doing other stuff and then take time later to label and export my tracks. Very satisfied with this purchase.
This is my first turntable. I was looking for something basic, no frills, that gets the job done well. This one has totally delivered. The sound is crisp and I've had no problems with it at all. If you are an entry level vinyl enthusiast, don't forget to buy speakers, as this includes none. I've been completely happy to grow my record collection with this purchase :)
This turn Table is very very good. The only reason I give It 4 stars is because my stylus is bad. I will contact Overstock and see if they will replace the stylus. If they wont, I will still keep this turn table, because the rest of the table runs great. The reason I know stylus bad is i had it checked out by a audio pro. My knowledge is limited on these matters.
