A quality turntable at a realistic price
This turntable comes from the well known Pro-ject company and is a fine example of a sophisticated yet easy to use turntable. It features a decent ortofon cartridge, a carefully made tone arm which enables you to set up the cartridge weight with precision, and an overall design that is simple yet elegant. It is solid and well made without being too heavy or bulky. The sound is bright and of a decent standard and the range of records I played sounded very good with good stereo separation, a mellow yet bright sound and a decent sense of space. Don't buy a poor quality turntable with a cheap cartridge and tone arm. This turntable will satisfy you for many years and will bring out the best in your records.
Purchased in April 2018 for $420.
Best entry level turntable
If you want to get into vinyl and have a tight budget but still want quality, this is your buy. I have the espirit version (slight upgrade) with ortofon red stylus and definitely recommend. Does require a preamp.
Great entry level audiophile turntable
I have found this turntable to be terrific for the money. You can upgrade a few items to make it sound even better without spending megabucks either. Mine came with the Ortofon OM10 cartridge, with sounds pretty good to my ears, but doing some research reveals a 200 dollar investment in an OM20 can deliver great results, which is what I ended up doing in purchasing and installing a OM20 super cartridge. Don't waste your money on a 200 buck turntable from JB's, etc. spend the extra on a unit like this and you won't regret it.
simplicity, great sound out of the box, looks good
no auto return, auto stop, etc. fully manual. Will eventually make you catch upradeitis.
