Rated 4 out of 5 by KhnisdvmJ1564 A Straightforward Record Player
I bought this product for one of my clients, a gentleman with dementia. He wanted a record player that is extremely straightforward. This product is exactly that as soon as it has been set up.
If he had needed to set it up himself, he would not have been able to do this as there is an element of manual dexterity and co-ordination involved. However as I was there, I managed to work it out for him and he is now able to manage to play his records.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GarryM Really good tuentable for the price
This is a good solid turntable and is ready to use pretty quickly.
The only thing you have to do is make sure you've plugged into the correct input of your amp. My phono input on my old Technics SUV4X did not like it at all, but an aux input with the turntable's equalizer switched was great.
The sound is rich and strong with nice bass and clear mids.
Forgot how good records can sound. Time to dump MP3.
The guy at Richer sound I bought it from was happy to talk through my needs and recommend this product rather than the flashier and more stylish thing I nearly bought.
Good service Ta

Rated 5 out of 5 by Irshad81 Easy set up
My intention was to set up an old school styled Hi-Fi system without going overboard on the price. This product was the best solution. Richer Sounds staff were very helpful in recommending me the best product within my budget range and as a result i now am a proud owner of this turntable. The product was easy to set up and the instructions were good. The only thing i felt it lacked in the instruction manual is how to use the LP adapter. Maybe because this is my first that i don't know how to use this, but i would expect them to assume that there will be some buyers who are used to this product. However the compact size to complement with my cambridge audio amp and cd player means i saved space. The auto feature of the tone arm means limited involvement in playing records.

Rated 5 out of 5 by phillip Sounds great
Although this did seem expensive to me, I don't know anything about turntables. I went with the sales assistants recommendat ion and am happy with my purchase. Seems to play records that had jumped on my old turntable. Maybe needle arm is heavier? As I say I don't know anything about turntables. Good quality and looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeceris Does what it says it will
The Marantz TT5005 is a good quality, affordable turntable with better sound quality than might be expected at the price. Easy to assemble, compact and low profile. An excellent buy.
