Rated 5 out of 5 by Dylan71 from Great price, service and turntable! This is the first turntable I've purchased in 30 years. Aftee lots of research and talking to friends in the industry I decided on the Pioneer PLX-500 and am seriously impressed, its just as good as the ancient SL1200 I used to run BITD! Excellent construction, weight inspires confidence in the build quality. Great sound after set up and am.i am 100% back to my vinyl. Even 30 year old white labels bought in Soho way back when sound fantastic. Running this with my Kef Q500s and 1980s Marantz amp, I couldn't be happier. This PLX-500 will soon be joined by another and a mixer, again, the first in years. The service and delivery from Richer Sounds was excellent, 100% recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Atomic Rooster from Easy to set up, great features and sound. Decided to go back to vinyl after many many years. After three bad experiences in the past couple of months I eventually arrived at this one. Bought this turnable on the strength of other reviews which are not always reliable but what I read was more than accurate and true. This is a great quality item, well built and sturdy. Richer Sounds were superb in their handling of my purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by TrevJW from Perfect sound for my system. Bought the turntable a couple of week ago. Delivered very quickly. Easy to fix up and sound is better than expected from my old vinyl. Contacted Pioneer for advice on playing 78s and got an immediate positive reply.
