I never heard about this store before but I believe it has good reputation among audiophiles. The price is £199 at Amazon, Maplins or any other store so it seems like a good deal

Update: I asked via email and they confirmed that it comes with a pre-mounted headshell and cartridge.

Why the downvotes? Is it cheaper somewhere else or is it a bad store??

I agree it is a deal IF it includes a magnetic cartridge! The amazon one definitely does include a magnetic cartridge but nowhere is it mentioned on the GAF pages (although the picture shows one)

HUKD itself tries not to post deals from known bad stores and stores which are new to it so your deal wouldn't have got published if it had been that. It's not infallible of course

Odd, they specialise in musical equipment, not Hi-Fi!

It gets a generally positive review here

at nearly twice the price.

No idea sorry
I don't know anything about modern day commercial gear. They recommend the Ortofon scatch, this is an all in one direct plug in connection to the arm which is quite convenient if you are cueing or scratching! as the stylus is easily visible. But it's cheaper on Amazon!
Ortofon were/are? a Danish company well over a century old and who have manufactured some of the best hi-fi cartridges record cutters and associated equipment in the world.
Best of luck with your purchase!

Not really Numark basically supply DJ equipment

Actualluy a good price as 199 elsewhere.

Numark are a good manufacturer and i have owned a few of their decks over the years with no issues. Very tempting to dust off my garage vinyl and try a couple of these (Unless my numark mixtrack pro calls me back lol as great bit of kit too)

I think he was talking about GAK, they are a musical instrument store and one of the bigger UK ones.

Like TheMev said

Not a bad entry level turntable to be fair. Heat

Thank you.
I hope it works well and it comes with a cartridge so I don't need to buy something like the Ortofon OM 10 cartridge (£38). But even if I have to.. it still would be £40 than buying it at amazon and I would have a better cartridge. :-)

Now I'm just crossing my fingers expecting it arrives in good condition and working perfectly. I will report tomorrow if everything went fine

good price but it says out of stock

Back to £199.99 and OOS. Expire this deal.
