Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I’m 46 now and last had a turntable when I was 22, it was part of an old Pioneer midi system. I thought this would be a good way to get back into vinyl. Superb sturdy turntable and sounds lovely through my Marantz amp and old Kef/Mordaunt Short speaker set up. Putting it together and setting it up was easy and, as always, great help and experience from the staff at Richer Sounds, London Bridge.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality for the price I brought this a couple of weeks ago but I was disappointed with the sound quality and also the build. The whole plinth is made of plastic, the platter is light weight and also the power button is in the most awkward place at the back. The sound quality to me wasn't up to much quite thin sounding, not a lot of bass and not that clear on the treble. I also noticed some slight moter rumble on some quiet tracks from the motor. I returned this and swapped it for the Pro-ject Essential III acrylic and to me it's much better made and sounds better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Against: Nothing at this price" I can review it only as it was by What Hi-Fi? - "there is nothing better at this price". Simple to set up, extremely robust, and with space to upgrade, it is the perfect introduction to the world of vinyl. I would recommend the LP5 to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic turntable. I bought this turntable a few weeks ago and it’s reignited my love of music. The LP5 is a fantastic quality and stylish turntable that produces a wonderful rich sound. I highly recommend this turntable! :?)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can’t fault it! I originally had a very low budget record player and since upgrading to the Audio Technica I can really tell the difference. Worth every penny for the brilliant sound, sleek design and was simple to to set up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleased with new turntable Bought this product from the Cheltenham shop in time for Christmas. Was recommended this after the one I originally asked for was out of stock. It was easy to put together and connect up to my 30 year old amplifier and speakers. My old records, that hadn't been spun in years now have a new lease of life. Sound quality is great even through my old kit. Very pleased with the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but lacks features Wanted to replace my 30 year plus turntable but disappointed that the lp5 lacks some of the features I previouly had. The lp5 is a manual deck with no autostop or return, be aware as this can be frustrating. NB: I did my research and took into account the great reviews but missed the manual only mode. The sound quality however is fantastic although there is a significant hmm on mid to higher level volume but brings to life some of the 30 year vinyl that I have. Easy setup and plug and play advantage, not tried the software yet to convert to digital. All in all a good choice albeit a bit basic.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average I purchased this deck, basically on the strength of other reviews and advice from the store. Personally, after going through the simple setting up process and then connecting to my Musical Fidelity A100 amp using the supplied leads in to the designated Phono input and grounding dock for a record deck on my amp and setting the MM option, which is the lower gain option for a moving magnet cartridge, as opposed to the MC higher gain for a moving coil cartridge, I then fired everything up. I don't know what I was expecting to hear performance wise, but what ever that was, left me feeling rather disappointed with the result. I found the quality of output to be poor, far to bright sound, very toppy and not much smoothness and depth of bass, the clarity in the midrange is not very clear in my opinion. I feel that it doesn't compliment the album producers efforts. I have no faults with my equipment at all and I always use the same albums to do my own demos, on new kit. On this occasion I have been left feeling quite flat, but I must state that my previous record deck was a Linn Sondek LP12, which sadly is no longer with us, which for me, produced a perfect sound on my system, but I can not afford to replace it like for like. The deck does what it is supposed to do, but not as well as I expected it to, I did not listen to and compare other decks in the price range, so this may be what you get and what is expected within this price range and my expectancy may be to high.
