Sony PS-LX310BT Bluetooth Turntable with built-in Phono Pre-Amp, 2 speeds and 3 gain modes
  • The construction is solid and the matte black textured finish looks cool. This is a great entry level record player and an exceptional value.
  • Connected to the amp gives a brilliant and clear sound - the arm moves onto the record automatically making this a very easy piece of kit to use.
  • The unit is easy to assemble and VERY easy to use. The nice thing is that it is fully automatic.
  • The Bluetooth capability is fantastic and the automatic functions are so practical.
  • The platter mat feels like some type of very lightweight foam and clings to the vinyl record when you remove it from the turntable.
Audio-Technica AT-LP140XP Professional DJ Direct-Drive Turntable Deck (Black)
  • If you are looking to buy a turntable for home stereo use, this is a great choice!
  • This is a great turntable and excellent build quality! It's nicer than AT-LP120-USB and the lack of Pre-Amp is a welcome sight since so many people have been disabling/removing it for better sound.
  • From a build-quality perspective it's definitely a step up from my old turntable.
  • The build quality is excellent and nothing really feels cheap or poorly executed with this turntable.
  • This unit, is a very high quality product. And attractive and well made.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sony PS-LX310BT Bluetooth Turntable with built-in Phono Pre-Amp, 2 speeds and 3 gain modes
  • It is incredibly lightweight. The one-step auto playback is perfect.
  • The turntable is definitely lighter than I expected but I have not experienced any movements from pressing the buttons on the from of the unit to start, stop and raise/lower the tone arm.
  • The look and design is sleek and does not take up a needless amount of space.
  • Compact and easy to use. Love the product. It's easy to operate and sound is great.
  • It's light weight. It feels a little cheap as it's almost entirely made of plastic. I expected something that felt a little more substantial from Sony.
Audio-Technica AT-LP140XP Professional DJ Direct-Drive Turntable Deck (Black)
  • The weight of this unit is impressive. It rests very solid with no vibration and resists movement.
  • I was very surprised at the quality and weight of this device - it was very easy to setup and initially it looked wonderful.
  • Right out of the box, the weight told me it was a turntable of substance!
  • It’s not a lightweight by the way. Make sure you have solid shelving or a suitable table.
  • This thing is big and heavy so plan ahead, I would imagine that this WILL bend fiberboard entertainment center shelves.

What customers say about "Audio"
Sony PS-LX310BT Bluetooth Turntable with built-in Phono Pre-Amp, 2 speeds and 3 gain modes
  • The sound is very good. The record player is belt-driven with an aluminium die-cast platter, and has a rich and clear sound.
  • The built-in phono pre-amp means the sound pumped out is powerful and clear.
  • The sound is so rich and the bass is really deep. It's great.
  • The sound produced is rich and clear, much better than the tinny speakers built in to my previous turntable.
  • This turntable is brilliant. The sound quality at this price point is exemplary, and the Bluetooth connectivity is so simple.
Audio-Technica AT-LP140XP Professional DJ Direct-Drive Turntable Deck (Black)
  • The sound quality is an improvement over the AT-LP120XUSB I bought first.
  • My ears have finally can feel the MUSIC. My goodness the raw rich warm sound that this turntable produces is uncanny.
  • I have it paired with a Beringher Nox101 mixer and sweet goodness does this make for an excellent pairing.
  • I couldn’t be happier to add this beautiful machine to my surround sound system.
  • The only negative for this AT 140 record table is that the cover and base produce echo when the cover is closed.

Sony PS-LX310BT Bluetooth Turntable with built-in Phono Pre-Amp, 2 speeds and 3 gain modes
  • The bluetooth option adds a welcome layer of versatility to this turntable.
  • The black turntable has a clean design, which looks sleek and it has a nicely weighted, thick smoked dust cover.
  • The turntable is very easy to set up, about 10 minutes from start to finish. Bluetooth was really simple and my headphones paired quickly.
  • Bluetooth pairing was surprisingly simple, at which point I realised a benefit that I never had with my previous record players.
  • I like a gain control selector that determines how loudly the signal should be transmitted through the phono sockets to an amplifier.
