WHAT WE LOOKED AT
We tested each turntable with the same five records, from jungle to folk, to see how it could cope across the frequency range.
Can you hook the turntable up to a PC or Mac to make MP3/ WAV recordings? Can it do line-level output or will you need a separate phono stage?
Are we looking at a delicate beast that needs gentle handling? Or can you bounce around next to it without the needle jumping?
A vinyl turntable is likely to provide a focal point in whatever room you put it in, so does it look as good as it sounds?
