Quality deck that doesn't break the bank.

This is a great belt drive automatic/manual player with controls for tonearm weight and anti-skate. Simple switches for record size, 7" or 12", speed 33 or 45 rpm, and separate Start and Stop buttons for playing the record, make life easy. The weighty aluminium platter and thick rubber mat ensure the record tracks truly. The ability to replace or upgrade the cartridge gives the user peace of mind for the future and the output with standard RCA audio cable allows connection to powered speakers or amplifier. The only negative is that there is no On/Off switch for power, if that is a negative? Connected to Edifier 1280 powered speakers the AT-LP3BK provided a very pleasant, satisfying sound with good clarity and solid base. Definitely recommended.
