My brother in law is a professional DJ and as such his house is full of various DJ paraphernalia. He has one of these because it was on sale relatively cheaply. Kenwood is a well known brand and I know that they make a good stereo so I assumed that they would make a reasonable turntable. I think my assumption gave them too much credit!
The turntable looks like it has cut corners in production to save on costs. For starters, the actual plate (don't know the proper name for it) that you set the record on is only about seven inches in diameter, when, of course, the full-length lps are twelve inches. What they've done is they've cut out of the sides of the top cover so that the record sticks out.
The next problem with the turntable is how it operates. Turntables are supposed to pick the needle up when it gets to the end of the record, needle riding alongside the label in the centre. Well, this turntable doesn't, usually.
The main positive trait about this turntable is that the audio input jacks do not work with phono ports like classic turntables do. You can actually plug this into an auxilary port on your receiver, or any other port for that matter. this also makes it much, much easier to hook your turntable up to your computer, which can come in handy if you want to make mp3s out of things in your vinyl collection.
Overall...this turntable is not worth purchasing. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't suggest buying ANY belt-driven turntable, as mentioned before. The best way to go is a Techniques, they aren't trying to make cheap turntables. They make their turntables the same way they did decades ago. Yes, it'll probably be quite a bit more expensive than this, but it'll be much better quality, easier to work on, & you'll definitely get more life out of one.
