Professional, beginner-friendly, upgradable and aesthetic
Audio-technica has long been widely ragarded as the flagship of turntables. That's why I dicided to buy a turntable from them at the very biginning. However, the entry model (lp60) that can play vinyls automatically just doesn't catch my eyes, because it isn't upgradable or that aesthetic, and it isn't professional of course. Most importantly, it't not that cheap as well. Soon I found Carbon VTA Turntable here. First of all, it's pretty beautiful and can be perfectly arranged with other furniture. Secondly, its stylus, cartridge, carbon fibre arm are all replaceable, providing me with many choices for upgrading. Thirdly, you can easily assemble the turntable and quickly begin your music journey by following the manual though you are a greenhorn on it. Last but not least, the sound is pretty clean and nice. The only thing you should do to ensure a perfect sound is finding good vinyls. With that turntable, you can definitely find vinyls' charm. The only shotcoming is that the turntable's stylus is not easy to find. And it's not very cheap as well. The same model will cost about $50 each.

Brilliant player
Quality is amazing, wood looks incredible. Really nice sounding unit too. Great touch adding in the brush too, really worth paying the extra to get it into the UK.

Loved the wood finish and slim design and how well it was made. Definitely a good quality unit. Sonically also a huge improvement from my previous setup so I'm very pleased with purchase.

Great entry level Turntable
Whether you are just getting your feet wet or you're an experienced audiophile, this Turntable provides a worthy foundation for a great experience. A couple items worth mentioning: only 33 and 45 speeds are available so unless you have old 78s from the 50's and older then that should not matter...the other thing is that it does not have auto stop, which means you just have to be on top of it if you are concerned about damaging the needle.

Solid option for the price
As someone who's still in the process of building out a higher-end set of hardware, this was a pretty good starting point. The built-in amplifier works fairly well with my powered speakers but anticipate needing an independent one before too long. At the very least it's an excellent starting point for an apartment where I can't manage larger passive speakers to really push it yet. The setup was really simple, the delivery packaging was very well designed and kept everything secure. Adjustments are easy, etc. The only gripe I have is the feet are somewhat difficult to adjust and pretty limited in range.

Beautiful and sleek
I wasn't sure what to expect with this vinyl player and there were delays because of covid but when I was dropped off at the front door, I was really impressed with the quality and design.

What a value!
This turntable has exceeded my expectations! This a great value for the money! One great thing is how user friendly this is and easy swapping of Audio Tecbnica cartridges. One thing I recommend is upgrading to either the Microline or Shibata stylus. I upgraded to the Microline "red" and holy s*#$ what a difference it makes well worth the $150 upgrade, my vinyl listening experience has never been better!!

Thank you, I ordered it after I received the turntable. I found the plug and play on Ebay for $149 and it's well worth the upgrade and it's good for 1000 hours of play!

Also if you can, an upgraded rca cable will make a great deal of difference as well. I have an Audioquest interconnect and it sounds amazing!

I dig it!
Another first timer review. Easy to setup and looks great. I have it connected to a cheap amp from Amazon and some Fluance SX6 speakers and I'm blown away by the sound. I'm happy I went with this over other entry level models, because of the looks and built in preamp.

Absolutely love it
This is exactly what I was looking for. It’s clear as can be, top notch and adjustable as hell. I picked this over comparably price offerings from Fluance and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I did however have issues with Fedex delivering the package to Hawaii, so individuals ordering from Hawaii may want to contact customer service and ask if they can have the more capable UPS deliver the package for you.
