I gave this unit to my son for his birthday, and he very much enjoys the warmth of vinyl records. Of course he had to buy his own speakers which could be a negative for some. Over all its a great unit.
"5.0 out of 5 stars excellent unit for the price"

My 30-40 year old lp's play excellently on this turntable. Some with visible scratches play without noise or skips. I have gotten excessive noise and some skipping only on 3 or 4 records out of about 60 I have played so far. Those few had scratches that looked like a knife had been dragged across the surface.
This turntable is a good buy even at a higher price I paid at another store because every [local store] within 130 miles was sold out and I didn't want to order by mail.
One salesman tried to sell me a pre-amp to go along with this turntable. It doesn't need it. It has a built-in preamp which was pre-set for connecting to AUX or VIDEO jacks, with a switch to reset if connecting to PHONO jacks.
If I were comparing to units selling for much higher prices, I'm sure it would not rate 5 stars, but I'm rating it for price and my usage, playing through a mid-grade bookshelf mini system which cost only a little more than the turntable.
"A good starter deal."

I got this for a starter system, and it does the job. If you wanna start collecting records, well, this'll do the job. It's not gonna set the world on fire with it's quality of sound, but it works just fine. My only real caveat with this turntable is the kinda cheap, Fischer-Price plastic feel it has. But I bought it because it does the job for the price I paid for it.
"Terrible sound- fixed with EQ switch which should be OUTSIDE"
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Central Coast, CA
OLD REVIEW: I bought this turntable a few years ago but only recently decided to use it. It came assembled so I did not deal with that part. The sound quality is TERRIBLE!!
(UPDATED INFORMATION: I had to dis assemble the turntable to access the EQ switch. My receiver does had the PHONO outlets, so I needed to change the EQ switch on the turntable. Apparently, if you buy one assembled, it comes with the default setting that assumes there is NO phono plug on your receiver. Once reassembled (belt came off and had to play with it a bit to get it right)..the turntable is terrific...but the EQ switch should be located on the OUTSIDE of the machine.)
OLD REVIEW: My Cds and tapes sound fine using the same receiver and speakers but the records are horrible. I cleaned them and tried again. No luck. Moved the speakers as recommended in the trouble shooting section of the manual. No improvement. Checked the connections-per manual. No improvement. Bought a new stylus in case the original one got damaged in the couple moves I made since buying the turntable. NO improvement. I give up. I think I got a bad one and too late to return. Circuit City is out of business.

Great add-on to component system; knew we held on to our vinyl collections for a reaason. Turntable hooks up easily to older components & you can't go wrong w/Sony elecronics.
"Blast from the Past"
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
I bought this Sony turntable on or about April 30, 2010 in order to play my Beatles records. In my opinions, vinyl is the only way to play the Beatles and this wonderful turntable allows me to do just that. It produces a rich, full stereo sound that blows CD players away. However, I must admit that I also have a good stereo amplifier. This Sony turntable is also priced right. It's very affordable. This product rocks!!! Tom
