    Rega - RP1 Turntable

    "Well this Rega RP1 is pretty amazing. I kind of love it right away. Only thing is: it's not the cheapest. It's almost 200 dollars above other turntables that pretty much do a great job and have many good reviews. So I'd say: buy it if this one is really what you want. However, if you don't want to spend too much money, there are great turntables at half the price!"

    "Waivering reviews make me wary of the Denon DP-300F Fully Automatic Analog Turntable. The price and features check all the boxes but the consumers ratings are inconsitent."

    "I was excited for this to arrive, but it was a complete disappointment when I finally did it get. First off, it is too expensive for 1. I can get 2 for cheaper than this stand alone price. The most important part was the sound, which sounded decent but not great for the price paid."

    "For the money, there is definitely something better out there. Although this is quite functional and attempts to deliver everything one needs in this type of product it fails in a few important areas in my book. For starters, I believe something is wrong with the circuitry because no matter what lengths I go to in order to ensure proper grounding and connectivity, I am still left with a slight humming noise that I cannot seem to eliminate. Also, after using this for a few months and inducing some heat around the palm rest area, a sticky residue forms similar to that of what forms on a steering wheel after years of exposure to the sun. These are just a few notable issues that a product in this price range should not feature."

    "Any DJ on the run should try out the Numark PT01 Scratch turntable. I love that it can run on batteries, meaning I can break out some tunes pretty much anywhere, especially because it is so lightweight. USB means you can record right into your computer and the other inputs allow you to plug in even your phone for background beats. Really great that it is compatible with pretty much any record too, which means I have access to my whole collection now when spinning."

    "I've seen enough DJs play and use these tables, that I think I'd recommend them on that alone. That said, I tried a pair for myself and was able to mix like a pro almost out of the box! OK maybe not quite, but I feel like I'm on the way there, and these tables make it easy peasy!"
