This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 6 Year Supercare. Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around. We have been encouraging our customers to do just that for years because, not only are our prices significantly cheaper than our competitors, but just look at what else we include:

Free loan machine (only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.

Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.

Free routine service / Maintenance checks
have your unit serviced as often as you wish, free of charge, during the 6 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).

45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 6 Year Supercare package just ask for a full refund - no questions asked. After 45 days, providing no claim has been made, you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund.

If you use the policy in the 6 years, you'll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don't use it...IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!*

* Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we'll refund the price of your warranty.

The Marantz TT5005 is the perfect plug and play turntable

Ready to go, straight out of the box

If you're looking for a quality brand of turntable that's easy to set-up and use, then the Marantz TT5005 is ideal. With a preset tone-arm and attached MM cartridge, the TT5005 is ready to go. It has a built-in phono pre-amp, so will work with any hi-fi that has an RCA Aux input. Automatic tone-arm operation returns the arm at the end of each side, and selecting the speed is done by a button rather than by manually moving the belt on its pulley.

Good sound quality
The belt drive system gives a naturally well-damped and low distortion sound quality. Solid construction, including an aluminium platter further enhances the sound quality by resisting mechanical interference.

Compact size
Little larger than a record itself, the Marantz TT5005 is more compact than most turntables and so easy to place. The low profile lid keeps the dust out and helps keep the style neat and unobtrusive.

Perfect for bringing life back to your vinyl collection, the Marantz TT5005 is a solid performer.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Marantz tt5005 I wanted an easy to use turntable to use with my soundbar. This product fitted the bill perfectly, with it's easy set up and simple operation. It simply connects to my soundbar with the phono leads supplied with the turntable and as it has built in phono pre amp you are ready to go. Speed selection is operated by a switch so no having to adjust belt position. I am happy with this turntable and would recommend it 26 September 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Very good value Not a sound expert so can't comment on sound quality, but am very pleased with purchase. 24 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Superb entry level turntable. Plug and play - super easy set up. So it is at the cheap end of the spectrum - but the sound quality is superb, crisp and defined and It will bring your neglected record collection back to life. 11 September 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Great, easy to use turntable for those beginning their vinyl journey Perfect for a total novice like me. Easy to set up, put your vinyl on, press the start button and off it goes. Nothing complicated and does everything you need it to. No complaints. 10 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Absolute bargain with great sound! After years not having a decent system I had acquired a new Onkyo amp and DAB+ tuner and decided to go for this turntable just to be able to play some old vinyl I had picked up from charity shops. I wasn't disappointed! It sounds fantastic and for ú99 an absolute steal! The Carpenters for ú1 sounds delightful and Glen Campbell for 50p is immense! The new 180g vinyl is just as good with Nirvana blasting out too. Unless you have oodles of cash to spend or tlu are a real vinyl enthusiast then it's pointless to pay more for such a good performance. Well pleased! 08 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Exactly what I wanted. Needed a new turntable with pre-amp, read various online reviews which suggested that this one would meet my needs. Went to local Richer Sounds branch and it was on sale, which was a bonus. Bought, paid for, delivered within 4 days even though those days included a Sunday and a Bank Holiday. Item was easy to set up and designed to work with low to middle range stereo systems which so many of my generation have used for years. NOT designed for high end equipment buyers. Having said that, and having used the item, it is much, much better technically than a turntable for my market level would have been 20 or so years ago. very good purchase, very good service. thank you. 05 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby As expected Had product a few days. Behaves as expected. Easy to set up and sounds great. Good price and quickly delivered. 28 August 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Simple plug and play vinyl solution Straight forward set -up to the same manufacturer amp; pleasing to look at; love the push button 'start' and 'stop' which aviods any accidental dropping of the stylus; the colour of the mat takes a little time to get used to. 27 August 2016
