Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Amazing Turntable!"
Sound: It produces a double tap "cogging" sound when the motor is initially engaged. After which, it becomes quieter than many new, more expensive, belt-drive tables. I like direct drive tables, and I know they can sometimes be noisy, so I've gotten my ear right down to the platter on this one, and it's vert quiet, indeed! The included cartridge is better than those included on tables that cost double the price. However, all initial carts are intended to be upgraded. Feature: It has no VTA or azimuth adjustment, as far as I know. A thicker/thinner mat can always fix VTA, and tables that cost $1000 don't usually have azimuth. Lack of features is honestly a plus in a home table vs one for DJ use. I wish it didn't even have the pre-amp, but at least it can be switched off. Features like auto-return and such can break, and also add unwanted noise. The anti-skating is great, which definitely matters. The tonearm lever lowers it very slowly. That's also awesome! It does what it needs to do, not much more. Plays 33's and 45's. Yes, it has USB, which I also wish it didn't have, because RCA recording is just as easy. Ease of Use: If your headshell comes aligned (mine was), then it's as easy as it gets! They include an alignment protractor so you can be sure. Other than that, it's plug and play! Quality: Amazing for the price! I imagine it will last a lifetime! Yes, there are better tonearms, better platters, better isolation feet... you can spend $10,000 on a table, and you still wont have "the best". They say you get what you pay for. I feel with this table, you get a little more than that. Value: Best new, budget, direct drive table on the market for home use. Period. End of discussion. Spend 4X more, and get a Technics SL-1200G or get this one. Manufacturer Support: I've never needed to contact Audio-Technica. The Wow Factor: It does kind of look like a black and silver bad-ass... yeah! Overall: It appears that AT didn't bother to carefully spec this table. They knew it was better than X, so they just slapped X on the package. This seems very much to their detriment, as independent reviews show it surpasses the specs in almost every way. More on this in the details.
Style of Music: I could be listening to GWAR, Coltrane, Hank Williams or Snoop. I could also be listening to Prince Buster, Rucka Rucka Ali, Jay

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great for the home"
Overall: Although direct drive, it doesn't have the features typical of a modern DJ table. What it has, however, are specs far better than listed, making it a great table for home listening.
Style of Music: Literally everything.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
