My vinyl journey began in February '16, and within a span of 2 months, has transformed significantly.
- I started with an AT LP60, and quickly realized that the sound was not for me. - I upgraded to the U-turn Orbit Plus TT. This is a fantastic turntable with an inspiring economic story in U-turn, the company. I had Orbits with the Grado Black and the AT95e cartridges. Truth be told, there is absolutely nothing to fault and I would be glad to buy from them in a flash. They make an affordable, quality product right here in MA, USA. The support team was also a pleasure to work with as I went back and forth with cartridges. - Within the 30 day trial period, the voice in my head kept saying upgrade to the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon. A quick call to Needledoctor sealed the deal. Kudos to the U-turn team for making the Orbit return process as easy as possible.
This Pro-ject Debut Carbon DC rig is fantastic. I had a difficult time with the initial setup, but a few...
Sounds amazing compared to my previous player(cheap ion), I paired it with the phono box s and it just sounds beautiful, a whole new level of clarity to all of my records and a very clean and full sound. Only 10-15 minutes of set up. Definitely worth the upgrade, prepare for wanting more records just to hear the beauty of music through this player. Took a lot of thought to make the jump for a $400 player, but I did it and am very happy that I did. Also a beautiful blue, exactly the color I was hoping for and it looks great.
I've been using this turntable for over a year now. Still as thrilled as I was on day one. Great machine
