Rated 5 out of 5 by Christurntable Perfect for the price tag
I am really happy with the turntable. The sound is great for something that is relatively inexpensive. I know the phono cable will bother some people as it is hard wired to the cartridge and is relatively cheap looking. Ultimately it's not an issue unless you can afford a much more expensive system. For me the vinyl sounds warm and clear, what more can you ask for at this price point?
Thanks to Curtis who served us, his advice was essential. I have always held Richer Sounds in high regard, and the last system I got there is one of the few products I have bought in my life that has only given me joy. I just wish they sold computers LOL.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ghostontheline Simple to set up and sounds great
The Marantz is very easy to set up. I have connected it to a Kitsound evolution amplifier, the combination has a lovely warm sound with plenty of bass. I do wish that they had made the turntable a bit more robust for the money, time will tell I suppose. To sum up I am happy with my purchase and I do like the white turntable mat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by recordplayer sleek, modern and good turntable
Only drawback is no manual arm lift, apart from that no complaints. Just wish I had remembered to buy a record cleaner at the same time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DavidL Excellent replacement for an old Philips Turntable
Needed to replace a faulty turntable on my Philips Hifi system. Marantz appealed as on old Philips brand and I was not disappointed.Very easy to install. Fitted perfectly into my cabinet.
The automatic operation is a good feature.

by BrizzleRocker Great starter deck
This is a great deck if you've not had one before or have a small mini system with Aux ins! Belt driven and with a built in phono stage you can literally plug n go! I was playing my old vinyl within 10 mins of opening the box, simplicity itself.
Please note you do not need any cables as the connections are all pre-wired - this includes connections to your system! You can also disable the built-in amp if you would like to connect it to a proper amp with phono in!
DO NOT BUY EXTRA CABLES!

Rated 3 out of 5 by doctorlol Cheap but not too nasty!
I did my research and ventured into the Weybridge store. Amplifier and speakers proved no problem, however I was fixated on getting a budget automatic turntable. Hence my choice of the TT5005. Sounded great at the demo and took all three items home. The turntable weighed less than the cardboard box! No adjustment possible to the setup. Buttons very plastic.
More research needed... Second hoice of Aidio Technica LP5 really did fit the bill, and talking about the bill; yes it was more, but got credit for TT5005 and went home much more content. Moral of the story, go to Richer Sounds for continued support.

Have had a couple of teething problems when playing albums, but could be because my albums aren't in perfect condition. Hopefully, I can sort out.
