Wanted to get a vintage turntable, but was put off with some silly prices being attached. (Still looking though). As this TT is fully adjustable and not half bad Cartridge and stylus.(Obviously an update is required, but not immediately)), I decided to purchase it as a second player. Super surprised as to how good this really is. I do have it plugged into mid range vintage gear, but the lows and highs are quite good. Does suffer from acoustic feedback(base is plastic, but a lot of TT's suffer this anyway), but easily overcome. Dont forget that you require a pre-amp. Very happy and highly recommend. So until I can find a high end vintage to tinker with, this is absolutley fine.

Best value turntable


Bought from JB Hi Fi on sale for $199. Decent build quality, height adjustable vibration damping feet. Has built in stylus pilot light, strobe and pitch adjustment. Adjustable tone arm counterweight and anti skate adjustability. Works well, sounds good. A great deal if you can get it for under retail price.

I think this turntable is a victim of competence


I bought this turntable a year ago, before reading some articles and recommendations from "experts". The turntable is very clear, very adjustable and manual as the most expensive turntable having a plate of solid aluminum, this turntable allows you to change the cartridge and needle can also be controlling the speed (Pitch Controls *- 10%) and antiskating, the flutter and wow score -0.2 is ok. Please do not forget that many entry-level turntables are built in MDF, this has a hard plastic base, and a good metal arm and can put on an accurate balance.

Questions & Answers


Can anyone tell me if this has a built in preamp or if i need to buy a receiver with a phono input or something, or a preamp and if i could just buy any preamp or receiver

No, this does not have a pre-amp. You'll need to source one.

Unfortunately not. I traded mine up for an Audio-Technical AT-LP120 which actually does.
