Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Extremely quiet belt drive
This is a belt driven unit, meaning the table is driven by a belt attached to the motor. In certain lower-end tables these belts can make noise as they spin your records. Luckily, the belt drive here is very quiet and won't impact your listening experience in the slightest.
Pro Solid construction
While the plinth is plastic, at least it's sturdy plastic.
Pro Easy to use speed adjustment
The RPM of the table can be easily adjusted via a knob at the top, which makes dialing in the perfect speed really quick and easy.
Pro Ability to rip vinyls to digital
It has a USB port you can use to plug it in and convert your vinyl collection to digital
Pro Built in preamp
This table has a built in preamp ready to go, so you can plug and play without needing any other equipment. If you run your own preamp though, the built in one is switchable so you can always turn it off.
Con May experience pitch variation
While listening, you might notice the pitch shift up or down slightly. Occasionally it has troubles holding its speed, which can definitely impact the listening experience.
Con Not-so-great stock needle cartridge
The needle cartridge the unit comes with leaves a bit to be desired. The tone is slightly muddier and darker than you would expect, and can be slightly muted tonally. For an entry player though, it works just fine.
Con Prone to feedback
There is little dampening material here, and the plinth is somewhat resonant, so if you're playing something at high volume you might experience feedback.
