The quiet signal that comes off the needle of a record player needs the extra boost of a phono stage to be heard. This unit has one built-in, though an external unit may well offer better quality.

The Marantz TT5005 is the perfect plug and play turntable
Ready to go, straight out of the box If you're looking for a quality brand of turntable that's easy to set-up and use, then the Marantz TT5005 is ideal. With a preset tone-arm and attached MM cartridge, the TT5005 is ready to go. It has a built-in phono pre-amp, so will work with any hi-fi that has an RCA Aux input. Automatic tone-arm operation returns the arm at the end of each side, and selecting the speed is done by a button rather than by manually moving the belt on its pulley.
Good sound quality The belt drive system gives a naturally well-damped and low distortion sound quality. Solid construction, including an aluminium platter further enhances the sound quality by resisting mechanical interference.
Compact size Little larger than a record itself, the Marantz TT5005 is more compact than most turntables and so easy to place. The low profile lid keeps the dust out and helps keep the style neat and unobtrusive.
Perfect for bringing life back to your vinyl collection, the Marantz TT5005 is a solid performer.
Does it feature an onboard phono stage? Allows the turntable to be plugged into an amp without a phono input
Does it have a USB output? This allows the turntable to be plugged directly into a computer - allowing for easy copying from vinyl to the computer's hard drive. Output may only be compatible with PC or Mac.
Eco Friendly Features
Does this product conform to energy efficient standards? These standards include the American "Energy Star", the European "Energy Flower" or "EcoLabel" and the UK EST (Energy Saving Trust) certification.

Great ProductBought this as a 60th birthday gift for our dad. He has the full Marantz system now. He was delighted with this final addition to his sound system. Quality great and very easy to set up. Very efficient delivery.

Bog standard turntableI bought this particular turntable as it would connect to an old AMP without the need for a pre-amp. The product feels quite cheap and plasticky - even the Start/Stop buttons are somewhat old fashioned. I was disappointed that the audio cable is hard-wired into the player as I had hoped to use a premium cable to optimise the output to the Amp.
I have nothing to compare but I am pleased with the quality of the sound coming from the vinyl.

Super easy set up and priceHaving around 600 albums in mothballs this was the prefect turntable to renew my vinyl delights. Idiot level set up. Easy on the eye. Love the automatic return of tone arm to base. The guys at Richer Sounds checked out it would be suitable for my existing set up before any sale. It has a white mat which I personally think looks cool. Nice belt drive that operates disc speed by a single press of the button. You could do a lot worse at this price. Nice to have the dust lid in place also. Now all you need is the vinyl.

Just what you'd expect from MarantzI picked this up for £179.95 and am pretty happy with the purchase. The sound is clear and rich and the unit itself looks simple but nicely finished.
The only reason I didn't give it a maximum score in both overall rating and value is the absence of a cue lever and a tone arm lock (although the latter is really only a very minor niggle).

Great easy to use record deckAs someone buying my first record player I was looking for something easy to use. And this more than fit the bill.
Easy to set up. Put plate on top. Flick the drive belt over the gear and done. Ready to go.
Easy to change size of record at the flick of a switch.
And the speed is just a button.
Start and stop buttons on the front. And an auto return once the record has finished.
Looks good. And is pretty quiet. Great sound as well.
Built in phono stage means you can use with anything you have with phono in.
In my case a 16 year old Sony AV amp.

Simplicity itselfThis a wonderful piece of kit. It has reignited my love of vinyl. True to its description, it really is just a case of connecting the leads to your receiver, and away you go!
