This an entry level turntable, but performs well.
A little bit of rumble between tracks, but great sound otherwise

Very easy to set up and have had no problems with it at all, good sound thru my Marantz hi-fi. Buttons a bit plasticy, but apart from that, very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Matteob Perfect for rediscovering your old vinyl collection
I bought this after discovering a load of vinyl from my schooldays at the back of a cupboard and looked around for a good value and simple turntable that would plug into a modern hifi system without fuss. The tt5005 seemed to get good reviews on its simplicity of use and the fact that it is quite gentle on records. I have had mine a month now and am delighted with it. The set up takes less than a minute and once plugged in the sound quality is excellent. Speeds are easy to set and start and stop are fully automatic although if you are careful you can manually move the arm to the desired track. I would thoroughly recommend this as a good quality and simple turntable for those wanting to discover or rediscover vinyl.

by karrade Great turntable for the price
I was looking for a turntable that I could attach to an amplifier that didn't have a phono input, Aux only. I looked at a few with built in speakers on Amazon but they all appeared to be very poor quality so I popped to Richer Sounds who were brilliant. This one fitted the bill perfectly & has a great rounded, solid sound for the price. No noticeable turntable rumble & the white turntable mat looks very smart. One little bonus that the description doesn't mention is that the built in phono stage (that allows it to be connected to an AUX socket) is switchable so it can be used with a normal phono input too. I've tested it on some disco, rock, dance & classic 60's & all sounded fine. The arm/stylus tracks very well & I have had no jumping or skipping. It has both 33 &45 speeds & has a size setting switch for albums or singles. It is a shame they have used cm sizes instead of inches because us traditionalists all know that it is a 12 inch album not 30cm :). All round a good performer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tom68 A quality product
This was rated as one of the best budget turntables around by 'The Vinyl Factory' and I have no reason to disagree. It was very easy to set up with clear instructions given in the manual. It is versatile in that you can use it with an amplifier with an AUX input or a PHONO input by means of a simple switch on the deck. It is more compact than most other turntables and has a pleasing design. For such a small player its sound quality is comparable with some pricier models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kfir Sensational sound from Marantz
So easy to unpack and to use.
The quality of the pre-amp is excellent and the sound when played through my BOSE Wave System is sensational.
I can now enjoy my classical jazz Vinyls again and they have never sounded so good.
The automatic pre-set tone arm and MM cartridge is a fantastic combination.
My ONLY minor criticism is the difficulty in playing a selected track as the handle on the tone arm is too small, at the wrong angle and there is no lowering clutch
