An anti-resonant base cuts down on vibration and a DC servo motor keeps platter rotation in tight control. All controls are outside the acrylic cover and can be accessed when the cover is closed. Plugs into your receiver's phono inputs. Minor assembly and set up required.

Please don't even think this is a dj turntable. The speed is electronically controlled, so you can't change it. The p-mount means you can't get another cartride, without having to reset the arm functions (they are standarized). The fact is the best turntables are semi, automatic, and if you're lucky, you might get a tone arm cue. Please read what difference is in turntables before you buy. The best dj turntable cannot do what this one does, and this can't be a dj turntable. What it does have is very low wow and flutter (.045%), and very low rumble (-70db). Check around and if you want find those numbers on anything but audiophile turntables. The next thing to make this turntable perform is get a new p-mount cartridge. I strongly suggest the Audio Technica AT311EP, which can be upgraded again to a shibata diamond sylus. Now you can play the best sounding music your lp's ever could offer. With this set up some of the high end turntable suppliers should be embarrassed.
I've had one of these for about ten years and it works well. The factory settings w/ the low-mass turntable keep wear on records to a minimum, and it plays fine. It's mostly plastic and feels pretty cheap, and you can hear some distortion on things like solo piano music, but for this price it's a decent table.
