5 out of 5 "Pro-ject Debut III"
Nice turntable. I know it's not top end, but this in combo with the Ortofon OM 5E at 1.75gm tracking force can reproduce great sound out of my 40+ year old albums (some of which were played on cheap phonographs - I can't call them turntables), never mind new 180/200gm vinyl. Tracks true and clean.
Also, go for the Piano finish - it's gorgeous. And it came with an alignment protractor for when you upgrade the cartridge.
