I just bought a PS-LX300USB and made my first recording. Very slick! I wanted to address a point made by more than one reviewer - "Can't monitor while recording". It is really very easy to do as there are two sets of outputs - USB & RCA (phono). All you do is run the USB to your computer and run the RCA to a stereo. In my case, my stereo is in another room - SO - I just got an adaptor from Radio Shack (COUPLER - two female RCA, one end, and one female mini phono, other end) and hooked up a set of iPod earphones to the RCA outs. Cheap headphones are best because they are designed for low output devices and will give you enough volume to monitor with, with only the turntable's built in "line-out" to power them. When one song ends hit the pause button, then the make another recording button, then the record button again. There are plenty of effects and tools - for old albums you can use the EQ to boost the highs, etc or put in a little reverb to make it sound more live.. You can preview (hear) any effect before committing. A great little package - all you need to do the job.

I spent hours trying to get the audio to play through the computer speakers. It all boiled down to incorrect information in the "install guide" of all things. The default playblack device on the software has the incorrect setting listed for the audio tab. I'll never get those 5 hours back....

Very happy

By olwill

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony USB Turntable:

I bought a few different Crosley's and the sound was tinny,even hooked up to my stereo speakers it was not a good sound.This Sony turntable sounds great on my stereo speakers.It was easy to assemble and is easy to operate.The usb ability to convert music to the computer works great and is much easier to do than some reviews indicated.I have over 600 classic rock albums and I am pleased with how they sound and how easy it is to put in computer to burn cd's.Very,Very happy!

Brings back the memories

By Rickym

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony USB Turntable:

Was nice to blow the dust off the old LP's and listen to the way music is supposed to be heard. Works to perfection, was easy to set up, and mine did not skip a beat while walking by it, and i have hardwood floors.

Great Buy!

By mhedden94

from Tennessee

Comments about Sony USB Turntable:

This is a very good turntable for the money. Plays vinyl records very well. Don't be mislead by the title, this turntable is able to play a record like normal through speakers via RCA out. However, you also have the option to convert your vinyl to mp3, etc. Sound quality is great, can't beat a good old fashioned record. Definitely worth buying!

Great Stereo Turntable

By BeeGeeDC

from Washington, D.C.

Comments about Sony USB Turntable:

I've only had my turntable for a couple of months, but easily converted several vinyl albums using the vinyl restoration feature in SoundForge 9.0, although some songs don't break. That's easily fixed via cut & paste into new tracks. Just make sure you save first in WAV format and then you can edit freely and save into other formats (e.g. MP3, etc.#. Still learning software, but it seems to work best via the vinyl restoration wizard. For replacement, the stylus #N-6516) part number is 9-885-117-75 and the cartridge part number is 9-885-117-76. Give Sony parts and accessories a call. I'm going to convert all my vinyl and have loads of MP3s to load on phone that are probably not even available in online stores. Wish I could sell them, but I'm sure the bad guys would call. :-)

No power

By frenchbus

from Portland, OR

Comments about Sony USB Turntable:

Followed troubleshooting help from Sony rep which we confirmed there is no power going to the unit. The spindle does not move after depressing "start" and no electronic sounds can be heard. Inspection with a flashlight under platter and it looks to me like there are some electronic components missing. Too bad they don't have another one in stock or I'd review a working model.

No bueno, my friends

By alecbucky

from Whidbey Island, WA

Pros

  • It converts records

Cons

  • It doesn't do ANYTHING else..

Best Uses

    Comments about Sony USB Turntable:

    I guess it is nice to have this as a record converter, but the fact that you can't actually listen to any records on it doesn't make any sense... I wouldn't really recommend it. Sorry Sony, but I don't like this one...

    Excellent Record Player

    By roelof

    from san diego, ca

    Pros

    • Easy to operate
    • fully automatic(you only have to flip the vinyl)
    • Quick Setup

    Cons

    • can't do scratches
    • poorly written instructions(luckily I have a knack for assembling stuff)

    Best Uses

      Comments about Sony USB Turntable:

      Excellent value considering all of the outputs and the preamp and also the ability to plug into computer. People complain that you can't listen to the music while uploading to your computer, making it difficult to know when to flip the vinyl. However, that's wrong. All you have to do is look at the stylus and when it comes onto the slick surface you flip the record(not that hard -_-). Warning: don't buy this if you want to learn to spin records and do scratches and stuff, it's nearly impossible to spin without touching the vinyl itself.
