5 out of 5 eggsNice, Heavy, Just What I Wanted.

Pros: Heavy
Sounds Great - No Hum
Lots of bells and whistles that are nice to have (Guide Light, etc...)
Plays 33.3-45-78 RPM
Good needle included, but you can upgrade.

Cons: No Direct USB Out (RCA Out Only)
RCA Cords are connected directly to the turntable, can't use your own cords. (IE Monster Cable)

5 out of 5 eggsImpressed

Pros: Built in pre-amp if needed
Stylus light for cueing
33/45 and 78 speed
Easy and quick setup
Heavy - meaning made from real metal

Cons: Not an automatic turntable

Other Thoughts: As an old guy with a lot of 60's and 70's albums, I usually search flea markets and yard sales for my audio equipment. Didn't want "new" audio equipment made from plastic components. Pickin's have been slim in the last 10 to 12 years at those places.

Based on internet research I decided that I would give this unit a try. (My old records have been languishing for several years since my old Dual gave up the ghost.)

I am pleased to report that I am very happy with this purchase as it fits my needs perfectly and has some bells and whistles that the older units never had.

Internet research also showed that, once again, Newegg had the best price on this item. (by $100.00) Received turntable on east coast 3 days after ordering!!!
