”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 Great value and sound I brought this a month a go and I am very pleased with it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent sound to revive my record collection Purchased primarily to digitise my vinyl collection, the software is intuitive and reproduces the original sound well. The turntable has a good build as you would expect from Sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says in the ads I was looking for a not too expensive turntable to a) help digitise an old vinyl collection, and b) use with existing gear to continue listening with the great vinyl experience ... and this one fits the bill perfectly with simple usb connectivity and great sound. Fairly simple to put together, given a bit of patience getting the tone arm balance and anti-skid weight right, but up and running quickly and very happy with it since. Now, on with that digitising project ..................

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reasonably priced quality vinyl player. I have a collection of classical vinyl including some benchmark recordings. The Sony allows me to get good quality sound as a record player as well as including a simple to operate computer download system, to preserve the recordings on my computer. The price is reasonable for the level of basic quality one expects from Sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality piece if equipmrnt I bought this a couple of weeks ago to transfer vinyl to digital had purchased a cheaper turntable previously that sadly was faulty but due to delays in trying it out properly I let warranty lapse. This product is more sophisticated and I am learning each time I use it but it's fairly idiotproof for my needs. Will probably hook it to my very old stack in due course

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great turntable for a newbie but option to upgrade I brought this about a week ago after owning a cheap record player (£120) that broke after 6 months of use. I can already tell that this is going to last by the look and feel of the quality of it. I do not own an amp so it's great that the record player comes with a built in phono stage which means I can connect it directly to my active speakers. However should I wish to upgrade to a new amp and some better speakers I can do sk with this record player which is great. The record player looks great and understated which I like. The only thing that I wish it came with was a auto return tonearm, you have to manually return it once you get to the end of the record.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Without a doubt the best decision i’ve ever made. I moved from an automatic turntable and always felt like vinyl wasnt worth it. With this turntable my collection sounds even better, no crackles or pops and so easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All in the box, stressful upgrade path. My first surprise being my first record player ever is how good Vinyl can sound, in this regard this is as good as any at the price. The sound background is quiet with little hiss, the music fun, clear, spacious and the integrated phono amp useful. You do not need to invest in anything else. I was deciding between the Rega P1 and this, the set up is very similar between both including identical cartridges, with no doubt that the Rega would be a better all analog sound. Nevertheless, I went for the Sony knowing that its DAC has to be good and so it is. Ripped albums sound excellent, no identical but conserving all the dynamics that has taken vinyl back to the mainstream. There is a big but, it is borderline unacceptable that Sony is using an AT91/3600L phono, which it is been their norm since who knows in the twentieth century. The cartridge is fun and venerable, but low (17 mm), too cheap and basic for a product that is meant to be the first step on the Hi-Fi or Hi-Re ladder. Also, when you have a not adjustable height tonearm, it makes a swoop for another one a bit of a nightmare. I have seen with horror aficionados that obviously know more than me cutting their own platter mats to accommodate their favourite cartridge. Though other Audio Technica, Ortofon and Nagaoka have similar height; so it is possible to do it without going through this as weight and anti skating adjustment are included. The tonearm has small lines on the head shell that help you to aling the screws so obviously Sony wanted you to have the choice, but observing the perfect alignment of the cartridge's screws, I am opting to buy a 3rd party eliptic needle as I believe the AT91 cartridge could be improved avoiding the hassle. Going back to the product as it is, the product's manual claims a wow and flutter of 0.1%, this is better than the less of 0.2% claimed when this product was launched in 2016. If there was an update it seems nobody noticed it. I believe this figure will matter to some people but I am not expert to comment more on it. Finally Sony obviously spent the money on Sound quality but created a too understated product, the mate finish is good to avoid fingermarks but without being a Lenco it could have been shinier. The high resolution logo I believe is distracting rather than catchy. But as it comes out of the box is an all rounded winner that is impossible not to recommend.
