This is truly a great piece of equipment and probably the equivalent of a Rega P1. But before the Rega fans complain, this depends on the listener and one should probably test both using the same gear (amp, speakers, record) before choosing which one suits their ears best.

Quality construction and parts, but no bells and whistles. This was trimmed down in favor of giving the best music at this price - a lot of turntables may sound better, but be prepared to spend a whole lot more.

I found this turntable truly excellent, especially when you get the itch to fiddle with it. The optional speedbox is a great future investment, as well as an upgrade on the cartridge/stylus when the original one is due for replacement. Throw in a good mat and the sound can compete with other tables at much higher price points.

I upgraded from a big box store Sony turntable and I am quite satisfied. Instantly noticed huge improvement in clarity and detail. This is a fully manual table so look elsewhere if you want a "just press play" deck. The table was well packaged and arrived promptly. Set up was quick and painless, just read the directions. After a weekend of spinning records the stylus was fully broken in and sounded better with every play. I did notice some motor vibration coming through the speakers and high volume between tracks, and I admit I was a little bummed about that. It was barely noticeable but my $120 sony didnt have that problem. But the Pro-ject sounds so much better than the Sony, it didnt bother me enough to return it. Then I bought an acrylic platter and the hum was gone. Also much less static heard in playback and darker, quiter background. I also invested in a good record clamp, which I feel helps any table perform at its best. Next upgrade will be the Speed Box and eventually I'll upgrade the cart, but for now the OM 5e performs flawlessly and I'll only upgrade once it wheres out. Bottom line: it truly is a great value, especially for some one upgrading from a cheap or worn out turntable. If it were stolen I'd order another, no hesitation. Lots of room to upgrade, minor upgrades yield vast improvement but beware: it can be quite addictive (and fun). After I order the speed box in a day or two I will have a total investment of $600 in this table, but well worth it. FYI with this table I use a Rotel RA840BX integrated amp and a pair of Polk TSi400 speakers.

This is how it's going to go. You're going to think about buying this TT and you're going to venture off into the online ether in order to find some more info, comps and reviews. Chances are you'll stumble into an "Audiophile" chat room or site and find some mixed reviews. Ignore them. This table is all you'll need. It is not a top of the line audiophile turntable. It is probably way better than what you are currently using however. If you want something markedly better than this than prepare to spend more than $700 bucks. Most likely much more. The people in those aforementioned chat rooms have paid a lot more than that for their systems and want you to feel that you must do the same. Either they have more advanced hearing capabilities than you (which I guess is possible)or they have bigger bank accounts (also possible)or they are extremely pretentious when it comes to music listening (bingo, that's the one). Shell out a few hundred bucks, buy this TT and be happy knowing that you bought a product you'll really love and that sounds great. Leave the fourms to the people who have nothing better to do than comment pompously from chat rooms. I know I sort of just did a chat roomy thing by commenting with this review but consider it my hypocritical sacrifice for your future listening enjoyment.

Got my PRO-JECT Debut Iii player a few weeks ago. Plays very nice. Looks great. Made by a German company. However, if you want to get a clear static free sound especially from older Vinyl records you better be ready to spend an extra $130 to buy PRO-JECT ACRYL-IT PLATTER for it. It replaces 10 inch platter that comes with Debut Iii with a 12 inch acrylic platter also made by Pro-ject specificly for Debut Iii. So the total cost for this player would be arounf $500 with the new platter. The player is not automatic - so when the record is over you better don't forget to either turn it off or put a new record because this player would just continue to spin for ever.

Also, you need a receiver to use this player. The receiver must have a "Phono" input jack with a ground connection. If your receiverr does not have "PHONO", but just have "CD", "TAPE", "DVD", or other type of connection Debut Iii will not work for you because it specificly needs a "PHONO" input to be available.

I have had this turntable for over 3 years now, and it is far better than it has a right to be. I am not part of this new vinyl craze, I have always played vinyl, I never stopped all the way through the 70's to today! I had such a great collection of music it was just too expensive to buy them all over again on CD, and as has been pointed out, I love the act of playing a record, and I can't get over the fact that CDs only have one side. So, I'm an audiophile all my life, but financial burdens have had me down in recent years, so when my old $700 Denon took a dive, I wanted something equal to it, but couldn't afford it, so I got the ProJect Debut 3. And to my surprise it was superior to the old Denon! Yes those old beautiful Denon tables that are so beautiful, this Debut trounced it! In sound quality, tracking, lack of hum and rumble, bested it in every way. Of course it's not automatic, you must drop the needle and retrieve it at the end, but I found that was not an issue, I got used to it very quickly.

So after the first year, I got the itch and upgraded the phono cartridge to a Grado Gold, a good match for this table. I then upgraded to an external phono preamp, and that too brought it up a notch. And finally I bought the replacement Acrylic Platter that is made for it, and found yet even more sound in my old records. I also have a record clamp that I've had for years, and it too adds to the solidness of the bass. That is what they call Audiophilia Nervosa, can't leave anything alone, got to keep upgrading.
