”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 5 out of 5 by from Vinyl revival! Not tried the high res digital ripping as that was only the icing on the cake, but very pleased with the sound quality through our Sony Amp. More vinyl on order!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent sounding turntable with a solid build I bought this for a couple of unique selling points, mainly the inbuilt pre amp which can be turned off (when I upgrade my amp in the future) and ability to rip my albums so I can listen to them on the go. Whilst the latter point is not unique, this turntable received good reviews for the software's ease of use and quality of reproduction. The turntable feels solid and was easy to set up, the sound quality is excellent and I liked the understated design plus the slightly lower profile of the unit compared to other turntables. Minor gripes would be: no auto return, pre amp is a little underpowered (although would not be an issue with a good quality amplifier) and the supplied phono cables could be a little longer. Otherwise extremely happy with the purchase, especially for the price! Has the feel/sound of a turntable that would be £200 more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking, does what I wanted and can be update Really nice turntable, good weight and all the basic features I required. Would nave been nice to have been semi auto like previous tables I've had but more importantly I required usb and software which does work really well and a built in amp as will be used will Denon mini system. Sounds fine with basic cartridge, though will upgrade at some point as basic seem to be AT91 so may go to New AT95EN as Ortofon M2 Red seem to be to large as no Adjustment possible in that way, though maybe adding my old OM10 may be better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great choice On the advice of Andy at Richer Sounds, Cardiff I bought this turntable. It’s sounds great and is easy to set up.I have initially set it up via my Bose Sound Wave using a 2PH audio cable which is ok, however on Andy’s advice, I will be purchasing monitor bronze 2 speakers and a Cambridge amplifier shortly which are all What Hifi rated!
