Q&A on Argos website "After liaising with the supplier, this Bush Turntable has a Ceramic Cartridge."


Avoid


But then I knew already, nothing at this price is going to have anything better than a nail for a pick-up.


The ONLY decent thing is their honesty in using RMS for audio output, although including the THD % would have been better

Any recommendations for something that isn’t going to break the bank? Casual user but not expecting top notch sound obviously

something by Pro-ject.

not as cheap as this, but definitely the best quality you can get at the lower end of the spectrum.
if you can find one locally at richer sounds, this is mine: zero complaints.

Yes, don’t jump on the vinyl bandwagon.

Whilst I fully accept vinyl can sound amazing on the right equipment, I really, really don’t understand why people are paying a relative fortune on records to then play on terrible, low quality equipment.

Stick to downloaded music unless you are going to invest in top quality playback gear.

It’s utterly ridiculous and I can’t believe so many people have been drawn into it.

It’s not for me... a gift. They specifically asked for something similar.

Personally I don’t like downloads anyway

L-85 was £80 at Zavvi but now sold out, L-84 is still available at £65 (minus 10% first order).
Maybe only differs in colours and USB conversion (needs a PC).

Not really, and a patronizing comment. It is entirely possible people have a vinyl collection from many years ago, but want to listen to them without wanting the quality or breaking the bank without paying for DLs or simply cannot find the DL. To assume that 'Vinyl is all about the quality is ridiculous.

For those people, no issues at all, I actually have a bit of old vinyl myself up in the loft, but;

There are thousands of vinyl noobs buying £28 albums to play on £30 record players. It's ludicrous.
As I mentioned on another similar thread last week, you can get an entry level Pro Ject for £150, but you have to factor in another £20-30 for a photo pre-amp if your hifi doesnt have one.

Sound quality-wise, compared to the Bush, or any similar POS, it is about a trillion times better; however it isnt the big sounds that are better, it is the little things you dont notice at first; you find you want to play albums more often, and they make you happier, but you arent sure why; then you start to notice things in the music that you hadnt noticed before; THEN you realise how much more you are hearing compared to that old ceramic POS.
