Look, we live in a world where logic & facts tend to be overlooked in favor of emotion and brand loyalty. Technics owners will state these decks are cheap and not worthy. Don't listen to them. The fact is that Technics are out of production and these new OEM decks have contemporary motors with outstanding and better torque than 1300s.
One important thing to note is the tone arm. They're not all set properly @ factory and one may need to remove gimbal screws and repack properly.
These decks are 5 stars and great. You will not be unhappy with them by any means.
Out of the box the TT sets up in seconds. Set on the record platter, which is held to the motor by magnet. Attach the head which had the cartridge (the needle for old timers) already attached. Screw on the counter-weight for the arm. Plug in the power and you're done.
There is a pre-amp and line-level output which seems to work well. I have no experience with any other TT to compare. When I decided to put a TT in my living room, my intention was not to have to buy or put a huge audio setup in there as well. I wanted as streamline a set up as possible. I really didn't even want to buy a receiver. So here's my set up:
- I let my wife pick the cabinet to put it on, which is Sloane leaning media stand from Crate n barrel
- Stanton STr8.150 TT (duh), set to Line-level output, with RCA plugs into
-a pair of Bose powered computer speakers. I bought these at sams club for $70 and had been using them on my computer. Yes I will upgrade as such a sweet TT, not to mention my Zepplin collection, deserves to be heard better. I'm looking at Audioengines A5 speakers but the 400 bucks is a hard pill to swallow right after buying the stanton.
- and I also have a Homespot bluetooth audio receiver plugged into my speakers (yes the bose have two line-in plugs) which I bought for $28 on amazon. So when I'm not playing records I can play my iTunes. This thing is about the size of a post it note. Very discrete.
As I said, I didn't really want a huge audio set up, I just wanted to listen to some vinyl on a sweet turntable. And with this turntable, a decent pair of computer speakers (powered speakers) flanking it, and a bluetooth receiver tucked away, I have a very simple setup that looks great in my living room and lets me listen to the only two methods of music I use these days: vinyl or my iTunes. The only catch with my setup for some of you might be that there is no remote so you'll have to actually get up and turn the volume. I know. Crazy.
This is my first official amazon review so I hope it proves helpful for those with similar interests in a turntable.
