I really don't understand comments, are you expecting to get a good vinyl player for £19?
Obviously this is just an average "on the go" vinyl player....I have a Crosley which cost £80 (it was a gift) and it looks and play exactly the same as this one...it's all made in china guys lol

If you are an audiophile expert and want a decent player you should know that you have to spend more than £200
but if you're just looking for an idea for a nice present or something stylish for your room this could be an option I think?

What I find a bit funny is that 20-25 years ago there were many very similar decks being sold in budget mini hifi decks.... sure they're pretty poor quality compared to something more expensive but we never suffered from mass record destruction as far as I can recall
It's damned cheap and I would hope record afficianadoes would have the good sense to not play their valuable collection on this.

Hot from me for the novelty and low price.

Doesn't this usually take a hammering on HUKD due to potential damage it can cause to your vinyl?
Yeah, the tracking weight is very heavy, wouldn’t use it for anything serious

Probably, I can't imagine this being a very good player. Bush's entire range are on the reddit/Vinyl avoid list I believe.

As long as you're just playing records you bought for 50p from a charity shop and don't mind them being torn to shreds it's fine enough, but if you're going to seriously collect or buy brand new records you should obviously get something much better.
Fancied one of these to play my old specials albums from the 80s. Just for a bit of fun. But after reading the comments ill defo forget that idea.

Decent but no poxy headphone socket which is a big shame... I got mine on last deal for £15 sound bit tinny too
Been that price for a while. Bought one last week.
Personally, I wouldn't play a record on a turntable that cost less than the record.
I used to Blindly agree with everyone who said that using cheap record players will destroy your records until I came across VWestlifes videos on YouTube where he completely debunked the idea of Crosley record players destroying vinyl.
Have a watch here and it should change your mind unless you're stubborn.

false economy, this will scratch records very easily, If you're happy to spend £20 on a player, and then re-buy your collection once a year, crack on, I'd prefer the dearer playr & buying the cllection once, just adding to it each year.
Alternatively why not just throw your records into a hedge?

there's no subtitles and it's a half hour long, but skipping through i can't see any sign of a microscope or any equipment to properly measure the damage these players cause, so i'd be very wary of what he's saying. the damage to records caused by badly calibrated turntables isn't normally seen easily by the naked eye

when the record is going round the turntable 45 times a minute with a stylus in the grooves, the vinyl heats up and the stylus cuts through the vinyl like a hot knife through butter, and instantly cools, trapping things like dust in the vinyl, which is why you get pops and clicks that you can't get rid off. if the turntable isn't calibrated properly, this is where most damage is caused. it's permanent damage that you can't easily see with the naked eye. it's not like taking a knife and making obviously visible surface scratches

the problem with this is when people eventually get bored of the fad and the records end up on the second hand market, collectors won't easily be able to tell how bad a record is damaged by looking at pictures or descriptions by sellers who will base condition on looking at the vinyl
