    Delivery on time, very well protected, very nice components and cartridge, beautiful too. M
    Been using vinyl since the 70s, and this is my third one. As nice as my Kenwood and Technics from then. Love it.

    Great starter turntable to play old records in the basement while doing other activities. The auto shut off and built in pre are a plus. BTW, cannot beat the price performance ratio for this. Definitely a keeper.

    Zach S December 28, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Illinois, United States

    Overall, it's nice. It looks nice (although there was a small dent from shipping), and performs well. BUT. I ordered in March. Set it up in April, and used about once a week for an hour or so. Then in July the tonearm bridge just wouldn't stay up anymore. The weight of the the tonearm would force it down. This is frustrating, and I expected a little better quality for $200.

    Getting back into collecting vinyl and this is a great turntable for the cost. It is really easy to set up and looks and sounds good. A nice feature is that the rubber feet are soft and shock absorbing. The stylus is an Audio Technica brand so replacements will be easy to find. Delivery was fast and it was well packed in the box. Would recommend, now all ready to rebuild the record collection that I gave away long time ago!

    Gave this turntable to my son for Christmas. I had recently purchased an RT85 and love it! My son is starting off on the vinyl journey, and I wanted him to start off with a quality turntable. It sounds great and looks great! Thank you !

    So far I'm very happy with my turntable. Fairly easy to set up and operates smoothly. Would have liked to see another speaker connection to make it more versatile with today's speaker options.

    Amazing turntable, I absolutely love it and the quality for the price that you get. This is totally worth it and aesthetically looks great.

    John D December 15, 2020

    Assembling this turntable is a pain in the butt: You have to string the drive belt and calibrate the counterbalance of the tone arm, then, let the motor run for 24 hours. But, it works like a charm after that initial setup and the Audio Technica cartridge is a nice touch for a cheap turntable.

    Soundwave December 8, 2020

    Purchased a couple months ago. So far it's been excellent. Sound quality is top notch, no skips, the built in amp projects sound nicely into my receiver stereo system. The initial setup with the weight and balancing was a bit difficult and took me about a half hour to get it dialed in perfectly.

    I use this TT strictly for playing records in my office. It is definitely a pretty handsome-looking unit in the piano black finish. For the purpose that I am using the TT, it's mostly great. It sounds pretty good, it tracks well and it's very easy to set up and operate. Once I got everything out of the box, I probably had it playing records in about 15 minutes.However, in hindsight, I probably should have paid the extra $50 for the RT81 for a few reasons. 1) The feet on the RT80 are pretty wobbly and they do very little to dampen vibration. 2) I didn't buy them both to A/B them, but I suspect the upgraded head shell would have been worth it by itself. 3) I haven't used a rubber mat before, but the felt mat on the RT80 holds static and definitely attracts dust.Nevertheless, it is a good turntable and maybe with the exception of the feet, it can be upgraded later to correct those issues.
