This turntable replaced an old direct drive Sansui p-m55 that just gave up on me after 35+ years.I am still getting used to the nuances of this model but the basic operation is straight forward and the sound reproduction is good. I am using the oem cartridge that was included with the unit. It's nothing fancy but gets the job done for now. Out of the box I had a minor issue with the belt drive "riding up" on the drive spindle that caused the platter to turn at the wrong speeds. Once that was discovered and corrected (thanks to support call) by re positioning the belt, all was well. The TT us fairly heavy, provides a solid base for the platter. Tracking is set to 2 gm which is much lighter than my old TT, making walking near the stereo a challenge when it plays. The speed and platter size selection buttons are mechanical in nature and are a little noisy when pushed. Automatic operation is flawless and the stylus cue lever worked well out of the box.This is being used with a Yamaha RX-A760bk home theater receiver. I hope this last me another 35+ years!
Great Automatic Turntable

Great turntable. It's automatic, great for people like me who get involved in work while listening to vinyl. I upgraded to a Grado Blue and connected it to an external pre amp and it sounds amazing. However the stock cart and pre amp are perfectly fine. The speed is accurate and table is quiet. Nothing bad to say, especially for the price.

Bought this for my husband for Christmas. Customer service was helpful when we called to clarify a few things while setting it up. Really great sound through our existing Bose speaker. We're enjoying our vinyl collection again!
