Advantages: it plays records
Disadvantages: cables far too short, only available in silver
It's about time the hi-fi makers started providing turntables again as vinyl is making a welcome return. Noticed how the music shops are dedicating more space to records now?
Aiwa's deck is bog standard and although sold seperately, is from a ghastly mini system (and although it's not too bad and does the job, it isn't wonderful). There is a pre-amp on board so that it can be used with amps that don't have the required phono stage. Unfortunately, they have put this control on the inside, so it's a case of taking it apart if you don't have the phono input on your amp.
Playback isn't perfect but that's down to the cheapo stylus that came as standard. I have mainly CDs and MDs and some of my old records have been played a lot in the old days, so what the hell. The deck only cost me thirty five quid. A pity they didn't make it in black.
