Very nice "entry level" turntable
Very well built and attractive turntable with hinged perspex dust cover. Has the new AT95EX cartridge (0.3 x 0.7 mil elliptical stylus) and lightweight AT-HS10 headshell fitted to J shaped tone arm..has pitch perfect direct drive motor turntable which starts almost instantly and stops the same..has selectable line out / phono out and usb connect to record your vinyl to your computer..at first the sound output was "bright and tight" with emphasis on higher frequencies than bass but after about 20 hours use the cartridge has "warmed" considerably...and the full soundstage has emerged..even comes with protractor and set template to align the cartridge which is critical for elliptical stylus...factory set up is ready to go but good tool for checking or adding additional cartridge for upgrades etc...is manual operation but the damping system to lift the tone arm is very smooth..has fully adjustable counterweight for stylus pressure and anti skate adjustments...very simple to setup and operate...this is a very good quality turntable from the audio technica stable and i am thoroughly enjoying what this machine offers..very very good sound output..very happy with purchase...only thing that would have made this an even better turntable would have been auto return after record finishes but not a deal breaker. Positioning of turntable relative to cupboard surface and speaker proximity and low frequency vibrations has been a small issue - cartridge is sensitive to low frequency vibrations which amplify and force the woofers to distort the output..have put it on rubber damping mat away from speakers and can now play the volume a lot higher without any issues...
