Easy to use if you have a shaky hand and want an automatic player this one performs well .
Can be used manually also .
Plays smooth and very little running noise .
If setting up for first time be gently the automatic system may need fine tuning but once set works away fine .
Sound wise mine has dn236 cartridge which has a good clear sound and suited to playing of old noisy records which on a more sensitive player would bring out to much defects .
Mid to high frequency v good bass less so but could be the cartridge .
Overall looks good easy to use but most importantly sound is way ahead of any of the cheap plastic autos available .
The balance weight is very easy to use and has no parts to break unlike some off the fine tuners on the 606 duals .
Good player as long as it was looked after and treated gently .
