Nice looking but don't expect great sound.
16 February 2016
It looks nice, it sounds OK but not great from the small speakers. You can't store the plug and lead inside the case. With auto stop on it cuts out before the end of the record but you can turn that off and it will keep spinning the record unless you lift the arm or turn the volume knob to the off position. I haven't tried recording to the supplied 512MB USB stick, I would rather buy the MP3 or better quality 24bit if available. It's cheap so don't expect it to perform like a Rega or Linn however I connected it to my Hifi system and the sound is reasonable, lacking the dynamics of the more expensive turntables and with some noticeable flutter I was still surprised that it sounded better than expected and way better than through the speakers of the unit itself. The RCA out is not line level, it's fed from the volume control and comes with a RCA to headphone plug to enable connection to external self powered speakers. It also has a plug to connect an external source to play on this unit but I struggle to think why you would want to do that. Overall it's a reasonable way to play your vinyl that can be used standalone or hook it up to a HiFi (as most do not have turntables these days) to improve the sound. I can't tell you how long it will last, I doubt I will use it much, I only bought it to play some of our old vinyl during a nostalgic notion and because it's in a case can be put away when not in use.
