Now with all of that said this is a quality Made in Germany entry level turntable. It has a nice solid base and feels about right for the price. It's automatic functions work well without the real cheap clunky noises you may have heard on some of the $100 plastic turntables. It features a proper tonearm and it seems to play at a very accurate and stable speed. You can have the whole thing set-up and playing in just a few minutes.
This turntable was designed for someone who is a novice at playing vinyl records or someone who just wants plug and play convince. Other then normal stylus cleaning and replacement there isn't much you will need to do to keep this running properly. It sounds very nice and compared to many entry level turntables it is built well. I cannot stress enough that this is a "proper" turntable and will not destroy your records. I will not mention any brand names, but there are entry level record players on the market that use ceramic cartridges, unweighted tone arms, small plastic turntable platters, etc. These types of record players are very hard on records and over time your records will be ruined if you like to play them often. I feel this turntable is a great alternative for people who want something that is easy to set-up and use without fear of hurting your records. It will provide much better sound quality then those "nostalgic" players. Do your ears and records a favor and buy a proper turntable like this Marantz!
Having had a prior problem with a Denon with missing parts I said to myself , I'm in trouble... But. all the pieces were accounted for. I assembled it which was a breeze. I am listening to "Parachutes" by Coldplay and the sound is full and it's warm. This machine is throwback to the fifties and sixties. It is made of wood (pressed wood) which is thick and stable and absobs vibrations
unlike plastic or aluminum. By the way it is made in Germany and not China and I love this machine. I'm so glad trying to get the
Denon did not work out. I just hope this will last but just like the Telefunken machine I had long ago, also made in Germany and
also with a body made out of wood, I have a feeling this will last. If you are getting back to vinyl like I am I do recommend this Marantz, you won't be sorry.
