I took delivery of this stylish turntable just over a week ago and am absolutely delighted with it.

The instruction manual which came with the turntable is pretty basic. It will get you started but that's about it. I had to spend a bit of time configuring my computer to enable the turntable to play through my computer soundcard, and the manual gives you very little assistance with this. This is a pity because the turntable itself is a great piece of kit and I urge the manufacturer to issue a decent instruction booklet for both the kit and the Audacity software package that comes with it(especially for novices like me). My turntable now plays and records perfectly.

The oversize switch for starting the turntable takes a little bit of getting used to. You have to press it in a particularly spot. Once you have mastered this there is no problem.

Most manufacturers of these turntables tell you that they are not compatible with Windows XP Media Centre edition operating system, the reason for which I do not understand. Well let me say that I use Media Centre and have not experienced any issue with the Soundlab turntable.

I can recommend this fantastic piece of kit to anyone wishing to digitise their vinyl record collection (you can even digitise 78's).

I took a while to choose one of these, looked at the ION ones, numark, and others, but they lacked the "professional" look and options, the soundlab deck is very very good.

It has an output switch on the back, for line or phono level, (line you dont have to earth and connect straight to a rca input to your mixer, stereo or amp, as a source.

Phono output means you need a DJ mixer with an ground/earth connection to amplify the low phono signal and eliminate hum from the needle.

The quality is excellent, the cartridge/styli it comes with does the job perfectly, manual explains everything you need. It has the plastic lid which also helps keep outside noise levels and dust away.

You will not find better, spend the extra on the soundlab. Well worth it. Software supplied is open source "Audacity". WHich works, i cant understand why people complain. I used cooledit pro though, but anything which has a record button will work, the computer just thinks it as a new soundcard called "USB Audio Device", then works as normal.

If anything , i would say the quality is the same as my 1210 mk2's i used to have with extensive ortofon needles.

I've been looking for a USB turntable for a while, but the Ion and Numark ones looked pretty plasticy, and I wanted one made by a company that knows how to make a turntable. I found the Soundlab one on Amazon, and having used Soundlab turntables as a DJ, knew that they knew what they were doing.

I received it today, and I'm now in the middle of recording my second album.

It's everything I expected - it's a lower-end (belt-drive) turntable, of good solid build quality, that just happens to have a USB output. It comes with Audacity, and just works "out of the box" very simply.

If you're someone who wants something a bit more serious than the "gadget-lover" turntables this competes with, at a similar price.. Take a look at this turntable.

I read the reviews on this and other turntables before deciding to buy and am very pleased that I did. Took the advice and avoided the cheaper options that many people considered to be too flimsy. Am very pleased with this one. It arrived very quickly (full marks to ACS Media,excellent service)and I had it set up and playing an LP within half an hour. You do have to know a little about how your computer's audio works to set things up correctly but it's not difficult and the instructions that come with the turntable are clear enough about what to do, if not necessarily about why you need to do it. But with the correct settings you can hear the music whilst you are recording and, yes, you do have to decide whether to record an LP track by track (tedious) or a side at a time. The subsequent splitting into tracks is pretty straight forward using the supplied Audacity software.

I've no regrets, this was a good purchase.

This product works very well once one sorts out the playback. I am using it with a Sony Vaio notebook and it works well once I found the right settings. The free software, I think Audacity, works, but it does not sort out tracks - just sucks everything in as one huge kluge. Reason for not giving five stars is this software. I have solved that problem by spending a small amount of money on 'Spin it Again' software, which deals with levels and separates the music into tracks automatically, while still giving the opportunity to edit it. The sound quality of the tracks loaded is remarkably good.

Verified Purchase
I tested this turntable with a Pioneer SC-LX87-K AVR amp and Monitor Audio Gold GX200 speakers worth around £4,000 in total although I didn't pay that! This is relevant because it means that any limitation in sound quality will be down to the turntable and not the connected equipment. I also compared it to an upper mid range quality turntable, the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Premium WITH Ortofon 2M RED Turntable available for £300 on Amazon and on offer for £269 if you shop around. First we have to say it IS unfair to expect the same quality from something costing around a third but it does give us a reference point for what, if anything, is being sacrificed for the cheaper price.

Firstly the SoundLAB is light, plasticky and functional compared to the Pro-ject which is a fashion statement in itself with it's various coloured high gloss finishes. However this does make a difference to sound as well because the light weight and slightly flimsy build make it more prone to vibration affecting sound quality and (as I discovered to my cost) the flimsy build can lead to accidents which could result in damage to your valuable records. When trying to put the tone-arm back in it's resting groove I was feeling for the small clip that keeps it in place but this had flipped over onto the groove making the arm unstable and knocking it onto the record at the slightest touch.

I first compared both turntables using the phono mode changing only the turntable with all other factors including the cable staying the same and played on "pure direct" audio mode so there was no processing of the sound by the amp.
