”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.

Hear the best of vinyl wherever you are, with Hi-Res recordings made via this revolutionary Sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great turntable for a minimal entry cost system I bought this turntable as a housewarming gift for somebody who has no HiFi equipment other than a laptop and a pair of USB speakers. They had two uses for the turntable: (1) playing their small but growing record collection and (2) digitising tracks for use on their two podcast radio shows. Don't believe anyone that tells you that this turntable can only use the USB interface for recording and then only via the Sony app, we have it set up to play as a "native" USB sound source and we have it recording via Audacity. It all works very well indeed. Setup was remarkably simple: you need zero previous experience with turntables to be able to set it up properly. We'll probably get a small pair of active Bluetooth speakers to connect via the "direct" outputs, that way we'll get more range and volume than with the USB speakers, plus their owner will be able to use their phone to play tracks that they don't own on vinyl! It's all a win in our opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For People Who Love Music! I had been wanting a turntable for some time as I buy a lot of 12" vinyl from the 1980s and most of it was, and still is, unavailable on CD or as Digital Download. As I like all of my music stored digitally on my pc/phone, I needed a way to not only play it, but also record it. I had previously tried the cheap 'All In One' retro-style systems from a brand I'd never heard of, but the quality was awful (I sent it straight back!). I then toyed with buying a standard turntable to plug into my existing CD Recorder, but came across this item after searching for alternative ways of recording vinyl digitally. I have always like the quality of Sony products, so I though I'd give it a try...and I'm so glad I did. The sound quality is superb, and the software is so easy to use. I can record a high quality, lossless digital file in the time it takes to play the record, which sounds identical to the record itself. In fact, the only downside is that I've now got a CD Recorder that I'm unlikely to use ever again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfying Bought this a few weeks ago. Easy to put together, felt very robust and the look exactly what I wanted - clean and black. Sits nicely atop my Cambridge Azur AV receiver. The sound is great with plenty of depth. Cant complain so far, looking forward to using the Hi-res software to digitise my vinyl. Great product so glad I bought it so that I can enjoy my vinyl collection again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for digitalizing your record collection. Easy to set up. Looks good. I'd advise an additional slip mat though as the rubber one provided gets dirty quickly. The Sony recorder program is easy to use but it's flawed. After recording and testing the audio for lossless I discovered that all the settings on the recommended Sony recorder resulted in an upsampled result. Audacity, a free app, records lossless and saves in lossless too. Strongly advise using audacity for recording and wave correct for cleaning up the records. The vinyl player has no gain or volume control so you need to adjust with your USB set up. This is still the best vinyl ripper I have had after 10+ years or record collecting. The eq is great, the sound is like HD and even some of my rough Mastered 45s sound better through the Sony player. Rock and indie 12inch fine, lps sounds great, some of the late 90s brickwalled vinyl even come through fine. Some of my scratched records even played through on this system. Well worth a try. Even if you don't like it, second hand they are still selling for a decent price.

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.
