Bought as a Christmas present. However, My husband did not get around to opening the box until a few days ago.
It does not work. Have contacted seller as we wish to have a replacement but as it is over 30 days since purchase we are expected to pay for return. It has a twelve month guarantee and as it does not work and we only want to replace rather than have a refund I would have thought 1byone would be more honourable!
I would love to but unfortunately it was faulty and wouldn't switch on so I've had to return it and look for another model
Does what it says, my dad has had a lot of enjoyment out of listening to his old records again.
Speakers from this item are very good
Great product.... we have one very happy teenager
I bought this turntable specifically to transfer all my old vinyl records to my i-pod and, much to my delight, I have been able to do exactly that with very little trouble. I discovered very on early that if you want to record each track individually you needed to stop/start the record button after each track. When I came to transfer the tracks to itunes I initially made the mistake of not transferring and saving the files from the memory stick to my laptop and finding that without the memory stick in place itunes couldn't locate the tracks. Once into itunes it's relatively straightforward to label everything. I am also very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the recordings when being played back through my i-pod, it's slightly tinny but not enough that it spoils the music. Having bought an Ion turntable a few years ago to do the same thing and finding it absolutely useless I was a bit wary of trying again but all my fears are so far unfounded and I look forward to many happy hours listening to all those albums I'd nearly forgotten about!
Really great record player. We took a chance because it looked stylish and robust. The sound was better than others we had tried for this price. My son was really happy and is now enjoying it in his student flat.
What a great thing this is, I am really pleased with it, everything about it is great especially the price
So far- I love it. I looked at all of the different brands of record players and decided the less bells and whistles, the more they could focus on presenting a good, solid, simple product. I don't need a cd player, clock, am/fm radio, cd burner, etc. Got those already. What I needed was a nice way to play my old records. So I bought this. I love the look of it- non-nonsense, nothing stupid or kitchy. It looks like a piece of professional audio equipment- nice, classic brown. Mine worked great out of the box and is plenty loud enough for my studio, which is a 12 x 18 building with high ceilings. The sound is good. NOT CD quality- if that's what you're looking for, the stick with CDs or MP3s. If you are playing old vinyl, expects the pops and scratches and that "warm" quality. Not to mention, many of the vintage records I am playing are old jazz vinyls from the 50s and 60s, and most of them are Hi-Fi, not stereo. I'm having a great time digging out my parents' old records and rehearing them after several decades. This is a solid, no BS unit with great sound. I like that I can close the lid while it's playing- keeps curious cats from grabbing at the stylus. All in all I am very happy with this record player and glad I decided on this one after reading many, many reviews for just about every other record player on the market.
