Purchased as an entry level turntable as a gift. Unit worked fine until the 3rd session with it when the music started to drag and distort. Changed out LPS, AMP to troubleshoot and it came back to the turntable. Also ensured that the equalizer switch was set to 0 as this was connected to a phono input. Seems fairly well but unsure how it would have performed in the long run.

I bought this unit almost a year ago. I had it hooked up to new pair of B/W S2s through a Project and Cambridge Audio phone pre amp. I always thought it sounded a bit muddy, so this weekend I decided to swap it with my Music Hall table that I bought in the spring (of course all from Crutchfield !). Hate to say it, but the Music Hall blows it away. I cannot believe the difference. Night and Day. Music Hall is crystal clear. I moved this table down in the basement hooked up to Bose 901s. It sounds good, but I really do need to check it out again. Maybe it's the needle, I don't know. However, not to thrilled with it. That's just me though. The difference though was huge.
Great record player / good quality
Great turntable for the price. This the second one I've purchased. Got this one for my daughter, after hearing mine she now likes listening to vinyl.

I purchased this unit as a gift, but I set it up and checked it out before wrapping. I found it performed admirably both with music and a Stereo Review test record. I was quite impressed at how low the rumble was. Other reviewers have pretty much covered it, but several complained about the rubber "feet". These "feet" are actually vibration isolators, and pretty good ones at that. It is important to ensure that the turntable is resting on the isolators, not on the cheesy plastic faux feet. Otherwise, you will get accoustic feedback when you crank the volume, as one reviewrer complained.
