Hard to say how good it is as this is my first real turntable, but I'm enjoying it well enough. I salvaged a pair of them from a grimy DJ coffin that was donated to me so free is always good! The pitch shift always needs adjustment and the tonearm is pretty cheap; cartridge is turned noticeably under the headshell per baerwald alignment and the anti-skate seems to not function, and I really don't care how quickly I can start or stop a record but all in all it has served me well. If nothing else it makes me interested to see how much better a higher quality setup can perform. Cartridge is a Stanton AL500II which has seen better days as it was used for scratching and thus ran max balance weight (over 5g) for most of its life. Still sounds ok though to my untrained ears.
