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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by northend Fits in with my hifi system
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Firstviolin Simplicity itself
Not having used a turntable for many years I had been a little apprehensive about buying a new one, thinking technology might have over-complicated things. I didn't want built-in speakers or feel a need to transfer to i-pods etc, just something that did the job of playing vinyl. And the Marantz TT5005 fits that bill very well indeed. Simple to set up, simple to operate, simple to sit back and enjoy. I can even live with the white underlay mat

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adamhf89 Great turntable, great sound
Bought this turntable from the Exeter store, none in Stock so had it delivered directly.
Really happy with it and perfect advice given in store before deciding on this one.
Upgraded from a cheap player bought a few years ago. Can't believe the difference in sound. Not running on an overly expensive system but even so the difference is incredible.
Automatically starts at the touch of a button which is a good feature.
All round really happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beatnik So much value for money.
Does what it says on the box. Read the reviews, and sure enough great piece of kit. Purchased from a Richer Sounds, Lichfield, fantastic service and product help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jane52 Excellent product, perfect for me
I had done some research and knew that this and other turntables gave good performance and were value for money, however, what was invaluable was the in store advise and demonstration which helped me decide which was the best for my needs (and saved me money, I was prepared to pay more, but I would have enjoyed that product less)

Rated 4 out of 5 by NBE66 I like this turntable but have hit a problem
I bought this turntable as a package with the Tibo2 speakers on the 2nd October but have only started using it in the last few weeks. The package deal is great value and the speakers sound great but in the last couple of days the turntable has started to give problems with varying speed (slow down) and consequent detriment to sound quality.
I suspect that the belt might be slipping, although all looks OK, but it is disappointing to have this problem arise so soon. I rang to speak to the ever excellent Chester branch but got a central office response stating that I had to take the machine into the branch for investigation. 2 months old! Nevertheless I will make the journey but a little under-impressed as I really like the turntable and the sound I was getting before the slurring started.
