5.0 out of 5 stars Great sound but needs better turntable., January 7, 2013

This review is from: Electrohome Signature Vinyl Record Player Classic Turntable Natural Wood Hi-Fi Stereo System with AM/FM, CD, USB for MP3, Vinyl-to-MP3 Recording & AUX Input for Smartphones & Tablets (EANOS700) (Electronics)
I bought this unit based on looks and when I got it home I was extremely impressed with how well built this unit was. It has a beautiful dark wood finish. Unlike most units this type the box feels solid and heavy and the wood finish continues to the back of the unit, no cardboard with holes. The sound was also exceptional. My only complaint on the sound is that it is very much like a Bose system with no possible adjustments for bass or treble but nevertheless very good. The radio was also very good with excellent reception in AM and FM. MP3 playback was basic off the usb input but functional and sounded great. No title displayed, just numbers. CD playback was basic as well but sounded great. MP3 recording from phone was also surprisingly good.

I'm getting a lot of static when I play CDs on mine--none of the other functions have this problem. I'm considering trading it for a new one under the warranty, but I don't want a new one to have the same problem. For you, was the CD quality sound just as good as the sound quality for the other functions, or was there a bit of static when playing CDs?

I was wondering about the problem with the turntable that you mentioned in your title. No mention of it in the review. Any details you could offer?

I noticed you've reviewed about 4 different record players in the last 1 year+... which one was best out of all of them? Did your other ones (The crossleys) fail or something?

They're probably referring to the fact it's VERY finicky about playing newer records. It can skip a lot on newer pressed vinyl. I've also had trouble with thin vinyl pressed in the late 70's and 80's. It also has issues with thick vinyl causing a very annoying reverberation sound while being played, that can be fixed by applying a little weight to the back of the tone arm, but I've yet been able to fix the skipping issue and I've tired two of these and they've both had the same issues (and others have noted these as well) so it seems fairly common with this. Eventually I'll get around to posting my own review, but if you're looking to get this to play mostly new vinyl, I would advise against it, spend the $200 on a stand alone Audio Technica . Plays anything pressed from 1970's and later plays fine though.

I don't see how any serious record collector (a 100+ LP collection) could settle for a turntable that is not counter-weighted and doesn't have an anti-skate control. It appears that the company has done well by cosmetics and the sound of the loudspeakers (not to mention the low price), but it's far from a unit to be taken seriously by anyone who has a valuable, cared-for collection of vinyl. Even an item such as the cartridge (which holds the stylus) can run into the thousands (and the stylus itself into the hundreds). I guess I'm speaking on behalf of the unit since most users will not be able to "hear" the difference in price between a really "low-end" and an audiophile turntable.
