Brilliant turntable, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Just wish it was this price when I bought it!
I would go for a Pro-Ject and a discrete photo stage, as they offer a (limited) upgrade path that this doesnt; but it is hard to beat this for the combination of sound quality and user friendliness.

One quibble, "Accessories" are optional extras, none of these meet that description, other than (perhaps), the lid; it is a bit like a car dealer advertising the engine, wheels and tyres as accessories.
Its big brother the LP-5 is also a fantastic deal at the moment, £260 if using the RS 'best price guarantee' as Superfi are also advertising it at £265. Mine should be here before Christmas.
