The quiet signal that comes off the needle of a record player needs the extra boost of a phono stage to be heard. This unit has one built-in, though an external unit may well offer better quality.

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.
Does it feature an onboard phono stage? Allows the turntable to be plugged into an amp without a phono input
Does it have a USB output? This allows the turntable to be plugged directly into a computer - allowing for easy copying from vinyl to the computer's hard drive. Output may only be compatible with PC or Mac.

Very easy to useI was looking at buying a record deck for the first time in many years so as to get into buying old albums again and planned on buying a cheap deck to start me off but after talking to, and, previewing some decks I found that the Marantz TT5005 was just the right product for my requirements. The selling plus was the automatic arm so records avoid getting scratched and having a wooden base is exceptional. any crackling whilst playing seems minimal and it's sleek design looks good. I can thoroughly recommend this deck to anyone starting out.

It's a turntable which plays recordsThis turntable plays records. You plug it in, connect it to the amp, and press start. the inbuilt pre-amp wasn't good enough (ie loud enough) to I bought an external preamp which has boosted the signal better. The stylus was a bit fiddly to fit but once it was connected it was fine. Sound is good - the only problem is that this is going to cost me a lot of money to restore my vinyl collection...

Really pleased with this purchaseAlthough it's still early days i.e. It's not long since I bought it, I'm very pleased with this. I bought it to replace an aged Akai turntable that has been used a lot (I never gave up my vinyl). The advice I was given in the shop (Edinburgh) was spot on and very helpful. The turntable was easy to set up and plays through the phono inputs on my Sony amp. Best of all it sounds great. Maybe I'm imagining it but after years of playing CDs and MP3s and playing vinyl on my old turntable, my albums now sound warmer and fuller. The extended warranty package also seems a good deal. Appearance is important because unlike a CD player a turntable like this with a lid has to sit out (not hidden on a shelf). It looks modern and clean. If I have any criticism it's that the rubber mat that sits on the turntable is white rather than the usual black. That makes it very visible.

Great productThis turntable is just what we were looking for. The automatic arm operation makes it easy to use. The sound quality through surround sound is good. Great to be able to use our old record collection.

Good replacementMy old turntable had given up the ghost after 35 to 40 years use and this is a good replacement. Really pleased with the sound quality and look but it is very light and could do with some weight added to stabilise it. Also feet are not adjustable so must be on level surface.

Very happy!I bought this based on the reviews on-line and then after speaking to the very helpful Jonathan in-store. I explained I only had a mini system at home and he printed off the info for the lead I needed to hook it up (that Maplin sells). Pre-amp is built in the record player. He also showed me some amps and speakers for when I look to upgrade in the future. To my ears the vinyl already sounds better than CD's/streaming on my very low-spec system. Can't wait to get a proper amp and speakers to go with this at some point from Richer Sounds

Happy to be able to listen to my record collection again.Richer sounds were really helpful again. My Denon Av receiver did not seem to able to play records. So for a few years I was unable to play my records. The Richer Sound gentleman explained that my Denon Av receiver needed a turntable with a pre amp. After some assistance from Richer sounds Imset up my amp and listened to my records again. Thanks Richer Sounds, helpful advice, great prices and on going support. I wouldn't use anyone else.
