”Want great sound and the option to rip your vinyl in hi-res? This turntable has it all.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.

High Resolution revolution – from record to DSD file

The Sony PSHX500 encapsulates the very best of old and new technologies by being able to record from vinyl to DSD Hi-Res Audio. Equipped with an ADC (Analogue to Digital Convertor) the Sony plugs into your laptop or PC via USB, where discs are recorded in High Resolution. With file quality up to PCM 192kHz/24-bit or DSD 5.6MHz, your stored records now have the potential to sound every bit as good as the finest quality digital audio.

Enjoy your records - any time at home or on the move
Once you’ve recorded your vinyl to Hi-Res audio files you can enjoy them in many places. Upload to a Walkman or other Hi-Res portable player and you can take the music with you or play it through your car stereo. Alternatively, store the music on a NAS (Network Attached Storage) device and you’ll be able to effortless access all your records via a huge range of wireless, network connected music devices, such as Sonos or Heos.

Built in phono stage lets you connect up to any AUX input
Thanks to the built-in phono stage, playing records directly through your hi-fi is easy. Simply connect up to any line level AUX input and let the Sony equalise the sound to the correct level.

High quality deck for reduced distortion
Much more than just a method of converting vinyl to Hi-Res digital, the Sony PS-HX500 is a fine spinner of records in its own right. Rather than being built from flimsy plastic, Sony uses a 30mm thick, acoustic-grade MDF base – just like the dedicated turntable manufacturers use. This gives the deck exceptional rigidity and damping characteristics, benefiting the sound through reduced distortion.

New tonearm for accurate tracking
The high quality tonearm features a new design of integrated headshell for improved sound. The shell’s lightweight structure helps to optimise sound across the frequency range and improve tracking of bass notes, while its rounded shape helps deliver pure sound through lower distortion.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Time will tell if this was a good move I bought this to replace my 40 year old Dual 505 which finally died. I was drawn to the Sony by the USB port for ripping vinyl and a wadge of good reviews. In the intervening 40 years, it would seem that semi-automatic decks have fallen out of favour so I was a bit disappointed to realise that I would have to lift the arm off the record at the end of each side. Not the end of the world obviously. I was quite surprised that the tracking weight of the cartridge was 3g (my old Ortofon ran in the Dual at 1.5g quite happily). This wouldn't have bothered me much if my first test play on the newly-delivered deck resulted in massive feedback when I wound it up. This never happened on the Dual and had me really worried. I spoke to one of the team at Richer Sounds and I've tried a couple of things to try and help but I'm already into the territory of having additional spend suggested (buy better phono cables or a different cartridge). Having already laid out £300, that wasn't the plan. In fairness, the ripping side of things is great. The Sony Hi-Res software is easy to use but, as the name suggests, results in massive .wav files which are way more than I need to listen to music in the car etc. I've therefore junked this in favour of the ubiquitous Audacity which works equally well. If I'd been able to visit a store before buying, I probably would have looked a bit harder as my experience of feedback would have come to light straight away and scared me off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound quality I bought tdhis to replace budget deck i previously had and the sound quality is much broader and deeper than the bidget model and I was please I invested in a more quaality product. I was surprised however that the deck does not feature an auto return arm, i.e when the music stops, the arm returns to the resting position. whilst the sound qualauty is not indoubt, i would thought that a feature that was on a budget model would also be on a a much moe expensive model. The 4 star grading reflects this, to re-iterate the sound qualuty is excellent

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 40th Birthday Bought online & delivered to my son fof his 40th birthday. He had been desperate to have this Sony turntable to help with his online productions he has been creating for the past year. He was thrilled with it as it does everything he needs. It is his 2nd Sony turntable, bought because they are reliable & great value at the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb as always Ordered a new turntable in the New Year. Was kept up to date on delivery time and it was bang on. The recommended Song Turntable is perfection, the sound through my amp is crisp and clear. Thanks for the recommendation. Always superb service from the Edinburgh store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality piece of kit Bought to replace an ancient Kenwood turntable which after some 30 years has give up the ghost. Impressed from the word go with the heavy quality build, adjustable tone arm and the look of the unit. Plugged in easily to my Denon AV amp and up and running in about 15 mins. Great sound from my vintage rock collection, so pleased to be able to access vinyl again. I’ve downloaded the Sony software for digitising albums and will definitely be trying this. Strongly recommend this product.
