Product Description

Product Description

Thanks to the in-built phono equalizer the TT5005 is an easy to set-up turntable that can work with any amplifier or receiver – even it doesn’t have a dedicated phono input. It’s also effortless to operate, thanks to the start-stop system that automatically places and replaces the tone-arm, and which also helps ensure you do not accidentally scratch the vinyl. Its rigid die-cast aluminum platter produces uniform inertial mass for perfectly stable and consistent rotation. In addition, The TT5005 comes with an MM cartridge so that you can begin to enjoy your analog record collection as soon as you connect the TT5005 to your home hi-fi system.

Thankfully I kept the majority of my vinyl from circa 1972 - 1990. However I always had a troubled relationship with vinyl in that the crackles pops and hisses were part of the phonograph format and definely not part of the recorded sound that the artist in question intended me to hear. So around 1990 I became a devotee to the relatively new digital age of the CD and later the minidisc. Saying that - some of the early transfers of vinyl to CD were simply atrocious.

However around late last year a wave of nostalgia swept over me - so I got my Dual turntable out of storage only to discover that the 33&1/3rpm and 45rpm changer was not working. Those helpful chaps @ the Electronic Centre in Belfast tried to repair it but could not get the required part.

So the search began for a new turntable.

I came across the Marantz TT5005 and tentatively purchased one from Amazon - best price etc etc.

Firstly I liked the idea of a built in pre-amp. So after putting the belt on the spindle and chose which equaliser on/off connection I was going to experiment ( firstly the phono aux <off> - this is situated under the platter ) I connected the TT5005 to an old Trio amp and Mission speakers - the sound was superb. Then with the flick of the equaliser switch ( to the aux connection this time <on> ) I tried it with my ever faithful Cambridge Audio power amp and B&W speakers - wow!! - the clarity - overwhelming.

Aesthetically - the TT5005 is a stylish little number and extremely easy to operate. There's a start/stop button which after setting the 7" or 12" option does all the work for you. It comes with a 7" spindle if your 7"'s are missing their centres. It also arrived with a cool white mat which you can reverse depending on which Marantz logo you prefer.

I bought this product for my wife. We have a Maratnz AV amplifier without a pre-amp for a record player. This product provides a built in pre-amp and connected straight to the AV amp without any hassle. The built in pre-amp saves connecting a separate pre-amp and the additional cables and power supply. The amplified sound is excellent. To sum up, the product does exactly what it should do and at a very reasonable price. For any one wishing to hear records again with minimum technical fuss, this product comes highly recommended.
