Rated 4 out of 5áby 7thStranger How to fall in love with music again.
Purchased this afternoon (25/7/15). Got the deck home and had it unpacked and ready to install into my system in about 20 minutes.
Though the Marantz is not up with the higher makes over the ú200 price tag, it's really not that far off. Bass is tight, midrange is fluid and the top end is crisp and clean.
It loses a star for two reasons - firstly the interconnects are hardwired and a touch short, you'll need to be careful with rack heights, though mine fits with a couple of cm to spare and secondly there is no tonearm clamp which seems daft, so you'll need to keep the needle cover.
Other than the above I'm over the moon at being able to play my vinyl again.

Bought this Marantz TT5005 as a way of getting into listening to the world of vinyl and couldn't be happier with the quality and sound. It is well built and has an amazing sound.

The instructions for setting up the turntable were a little hard to understand but once I had got my head around them everything seemed to work fine.

Rated 4 out of 5áby infofreako Discover your vinyl again!
Like many people these days I wanted to start listening to vinyl again as I've loads of albums that have never been released on CD. I dug out my 20 year old Aiwa turntable which, unsurprisingly, wasn't up to the job. Having just bought a new Pioneer mini hi-fi I wanted something that wasn't too expensive and easy to use. The TT5005 does the job perfectly. I'm very happy with it.
One interesting thing to note - when I was putting the TT5005 together I realised that is was exactly the same as my 20 year old Aiwa but with a slightly revised casing. So here's to 20 years of use.

I bought this to replace a very old turntable in the hope it would save a considerable vinyl collection - and it has! Many of the records I believed to be unplayable are now (nearly) as good as new on this system. Really pleased with this purchase and will probably now be buying much more vinyl - old and new...
