First turntable; no regrets

      Comments about Audio-Technica Fully Automatic Stereo Turntable System:

      This is the first turntable I've ever owned, and I'm glad I did my research and went with this one. Sound quality is just fantastic, which is what you really want if you are buying a turntable. High, mid and bass ranges are all perfect. Led Zeppelin has never been more fun to listen to.
      For the first time, setup was a little intimidating, but that's probably more inexperience than the fault of the company. After it is set up, the controls are all simple enough to understand, and it's worth mentioning that the buttons are very satisfying to press. The lever to drop the stylus on the disc does so slowly, smoothly and carefully. I've owned the player for over half a year now I believe, and I really haven't noticed any decline in the quality of the stylus (with VERY heavy use, mind you.) The connections are great, the USB hookup is very convenient and I can use either that or the analog cables to run the sound through my computer. The whole turntable overall has a very professional look and feel, from the sleekness of it to the spindle stopping and starting on a dime.
      The only real drawback and the reason I will only rate this four stars, however, is because the platter is very slightly but noticeably warped. Strange for a company that seemingly makes very good equipment for them to skimp on the tolerances of the platter itself. As far as I know, however, this has not affected sound quality at all, and should no means turn you off from buying this turntable. It really is worth the price.

              Best Uses

                Comments about Audio-Technica Fully Automatic Stereo Turntable System:

                I received this as a very nice Christmas gift.In the interest of someone maybe buying a really good turntable for the first time, I was amazed at how the documentation lacks details on a few things. While having the 78RPM speed as a feature, the manual neglects to tell the owner that a dedicated cartridge and stylus are needed to properly play 78's. It might be nice to inform a potential listener of this format what they need to play it.

                Additionally, there is nothing in the manual that makes it clear what a listener needs to do in order to install a new cartridge into a headshell, or what should be done step by step in order to set overhang. That is a rather puzzling oversight. Nor could I find information on headshells, or if a headshell/cartridge.stylus combo is even available, despite having the machine configured right out of the box with this handy combination. The top of the turntable has a slot to store an extra headshell, yet the instructions lack the documentation necessary to "build" an alternative, or secondary configuration. Really odd.

                The lack of information on grounding is odd. I have this connected to an Onkyo receiver, with a grounding post near the phono inputs. The last table I used needed to be properly grounded to that post in order to prevent hum. Do I need one? I would not know, based on the lack of information in the manual.The hardwired RCA outputs, with short leads, are also odd. Just spring for a few dollars more, and build output jacks into the back.

                But the table sounds fantastic. Tracks amazingly well, Setting it up is a rather fun experience, especially for someone who has never balanced, set tracking, and anti-skate on previous tables owned. The included cartridge/stylus combo seems to be fabulous. So much so that I ordered an extra one to have on hand. If I could only have Audio Technica tell me how to properly install and set overhang.

                Despite poor documentation, I would definitely recommend this turntable to a friend.

This is a turntable I would buy again if this one were to die (shudder). Now if they would make a cassette deck to go with it...

                            Just got the table(3/13/15). Spent about 30 min setting up the turntable. Using on Line out. Sound is crisp in the middle-high end and provides sufficient bass on low end(great cartridge). Very sturdy build. Strobe is accurate. Don't care about DJing. If you don't mind the manual operation I would recommend this product

                              This was a great first turntable. It has solid build quality and has the classic Japanese direct drive turntable look. It has really clean and resolved sound quality for the price. The built in phono preamp is great for plug and play capability and upgrading cartridges is fairly easy with the detachable headshell. I recommend Audio Technica's own AT440MLa. It brings out the most from this turntable. Another great feature is the option for 78rpm for older records if you also have a 78rpm needle. The speed is dead on being a direct drive Quartz locked table and I have not been disappointed at all.

                                Being somewhat older than dirt, I have over 400 LPs, collected since 1957. Most are of classical music, which means the unit must perform flawlessly and SILENTLY. This unit has given these back to me. I have no wish to dub them over onto CDs, as when I want to hear one, I'll just play it again on this.

                                I have full-range surround speakers with 12" and 15" woofers, and a powerful receiver, so any rumble would shake the walls. The unit has none. The top-line cartridge with elliptical stylus extracts beautiful sound and seems to minimize most surface noise. I had no trouble setting it up, but it's my FIFTH turntable over the years, so I know how to do this.

                                I also had trouble getting the unit to sit level on a custom made rack. It is very heavy toward the left front, and that spring foot completely collapsed and I had to shim it with an old cell phone battery to get the unit to sit level. Once I did this, it performed flawlessly.

                                Bottom line is: It performs flawlessly and does exactly what I want it to do, which is play my treasured LPs with the best possible sound and no noise or problems.
