The whole vinyl thing is just a fantastic piece of marketing. Apart from the LP cover, I'll give you that.
Good price it's usually fixed at 109.99 , A tenner above The audio technica It has good reviews too.
Had one of these for about a year & wish I hadn't bought it. There's no tone arm adjustment so it skips alot even on brand new vinyl. Bought it from richer sounds & had gone in to spend my birthday money to replace the only turntable I've even had (aiwa that came with my first hifi from tandy when I was 18, 23 years ago!). Had no clue but had bought what hifi awards mag & it's winner was the sony pshx500 but the member of staff recommended this one saying there was no need for the extra expense. Wish I hadn't listened :/
Can't hear you over my iPod, sorry
