Good sound quality.
Shawn McMurdo
You push the button and it spins and as soon as the tonearm starts to head towards the vinyl it stops like it's binding on something.
J. Mayle
This turntable works and sounds great.

No, you can't use this Sony turntable to beat mix 12" dance records or to perform fancy dj-ing tricks. And it certainly will not compare with any $1000 audiophile turntables in terms of audio reproduction quality. This amazingly inexpensive unit will function nicely, however, if you are seeking a basic turntable to play records.
This turntable will NOT play old 78 rpm records, but it does just fine with 45's (the small "hold in the middle" kind or l2") or 33 1/3 rpm lp's. Operation is simple: all you need to do is place the record on the platter, put down the built-in dust cover, and push "start." If you wish to interrupt play, you push "stop." If you want to raise the tonearm above the record temporarily, you push "up/down." What could be simpler?
Since it includes its own built-in preamp, this unit is easy to use in conjunction with a home computer. Why would someone do this? Not only can you utilize your computer's audio reproduction capabilities to listen to records as you work (or play), but hooking up a turntable to your sound card is the first step in setting up a system to convert your old vinyl records to digital files so you can burn them to cd. That's mainly how I use my PS-LX250H, and in this capacity is has performed flawlessly and magnificently.
It's unfair to rate this item based upon unrealistic comparisons to far more feature-laden and expensive turntables. What's truly astonishing here is just what a fine machine Sony has made available for such a bargain price.

This turntable works easily, sounds great, and is offered at a great price. You can spend more and get a better cartridge and more features, but for someone who wants a very good basic turntable in addition to a CD player and other decoding devices, this one is fantastic.
I recommend vinyl as an adjunct to CDs for several reasons, among them:
1. You may already have a collection you haven't listened to for years. (You'll remember how holding the album, looking at the cover, and reading the liner notes were once part of the entire aesthetic experience.)
2. Vinyl does sound warmer than traditional CDs. (Joni Mitchell's "Blue" is unbelievably raw and "present" on vinyl.)
3. It's easy to build a new collection, especially classical records, by hunting down inexpensive LPs at library and garage sales.
Unlike some record players sold now, the turnplayer does not play 78's. However, many of those that do play this format have self-contained speakers only. This model has a preamp which connects to PHONO, AUX, or VIDEO jacks. The needle weight is not given in the information booklet; generally speaking, the more expensive, lighter needles better preserve sound quality. Although not a "high-end" model for the strict audiophile, here are the SPECS:
Drive: Belt
Motor: DC
Platter: 295 mm. diameter (aluminum, die-cast)
Speeds: 33 1/2 and 45 r/min
Wow and Flutter: Less than 0.25% (WRMS)
Signal to Noise: More than 50dB (DIN-B)
Tone arm: Dynamic balanced straight shaped with soft damping control
Effective arm length: 195 mm
Power consumption: 2 Q
Weight: 2.7 kg
Dimensions: Approx. 420 x 100 x 342 (w/h/d)
Supplied Accessories: 45 r/min adaptor, platter with drive belt, rubber mat, dust cover.
The needle raises, lowers, and moves to the edge of the album automatically; the dust cover is moved by hand. Very highly recommended!

My 30-40 year old lp's play excellently on this turntable. Some with visible scratches play without noise or skips. I have gotten excessive noise and some skipping only on 3 or 4 records out of about 60 I have played so far. Those few had scratches that looked like a knive had been dragged across the surface.
This turntable is a good buy even at a higher price I paid at another store because every [local store] within 130 miles was sold out and I didn't want to order by mail.
One salesman tried to sell me a pre-amp to go along with this turntable. It doesn't need it. It has a built-in preamp which was pre-set for connecting to AUX or VIDEO jacks, with a switch to reset if connecting to PHONO jacks.
If I were comparing to units selling for much higher prices, I'm sure it would not rate 5 stars, but I'm rating it for price and my usage, playing through a mid-grade bookshelf mini system which cost only a little more than the turntable.

This turntable is offered as a low end offering from Sony and, for what it is, it's okay. It will play most records adequately and is sufficient for infrequent to moderate duty.

However, the PS-LX250H ends up not being as good of a buy as many would think since this model is merely a rebadged Audio-Technica AT-PL50.

You may be able to save a little more money and just purchase the Audio-Technica version over the Sony PS-LX250H (or the Teac P-988 for that matter since it's also the same turntable with different branding).

That said, you can also obtain replacement styli for your Sony PS-LX250H and Teac P-988 by buying the replacement stylus for the Audio-Technica AT-PL50 from, well, any place that sells Audio-Technica. The replacement stylus is the ATN3600L, which is a low-cost (around $10 U.S.) conical diamond stylus.
