What customers say about "Key Specs"
 
Sony PS-LX300USB Turntable with Diamond Stylus and USB Connection, Black
  • There is some self assembly required for the record turntable itself and the belt but this is very simple and the instructions are very clear.
  • Still listening to records, and can't imagine the sound could be that much better on a vinyl record player, and easy to use with button functions providing automatic play.
  • Easy to set up and operate, also the automatic function. Stylish looks.
  • The turntable works great, I like the automatic system (its safer and more accurate than using my own hands) and the sound for pound is outstanding.
  • I loved the sound then and I love the sound now. I just had to buy a fully automatic to roll back the years and trust me I am not disappointed.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
 
Sony PS-LX300USB Turntable with Diamond Stylus and USB Connection, Black
  • Great looking turntable, light weight, great quality sound.
  • The build quality is flimsier than I expected but this isn't a problem - at least it's light.
  • The Sony turntable looks sleek and is slimline, you'll find it quite light in weight.
  • Neat size, easy to use, would recommend you buy this one.
  • The arm/head are lightweight and the mechanism is clunky and is reflective of the worst elements of Sony.

What customers say about "Audio"
 
Sony PS-LX300USB Turntable with Diamond Stylus and USB Connection, Black
  • The stylus in fact excels :the bass is very very good, and the treble is a compliment instead of the tinny noises you had years ago sometimes.
  • For a casual record collector or someone who is looking to start a collection it's perfect.
  • My husband has a record collection that hasn't been played for years. He is absolutely delighted with this birthday gift. Sounds perfect.
  • Major negatives though; the needle/stylus is far too light, meaning it skips at random points on even brand new records.
  • The turntable is excellent but we received it without a stylus. A stylus is a basic necessity for a turntable.

  • Still listening to records, and can't imagine the sound could be that much better on a vinyl record player, and easy to use with button functions providing automatic play.
  • Good quality turntable, plug and play with my (very old) amplifier and rest of kit.
  • I've not connected it to my pc yet. I just plugged it into the aux/TV input on my dvd player. There's a switch on the back of the record player for phono or pre amp.
  • Playback has been smooth and crystal clear, and I personally love the way the table looks.
  • The turntable has a tedency to skip across the record, which is obviously extremely annoying.
