First impressions were good, however the nice looks and sturdy build quality couldn't make up for disappointing sound quality. If one were purchasing this to use as-is, and not planning to connect headphones or external powered speakers, I would say the sound quality is okay. I expected the built-in speakers to sound average or 'just good enough' for casual listening, however I wanted to use this with headphones so the built-ins didn't matter to me.
Unfortunately, it appears that the eq settings that were preset for the built-in speakers is also passed through to the line and headphone outputs. While these settings present the built-in speakers in the best light, the result is a muddy sound with boosted bass and a complete lack of treble when using headphones or external powered speakers.
On the plus side, the tonearm is of pretty good quality, having a lightweight aluminum tube and an adjustable counterweight (I was able to reduce the tracking force to 2.5g), and the built-in Audio Technica cartridge is much easier on records than the ceramic cartridges normally found in portable turntables.
