Records were recorded at different speeds. Will this turntable handle the old 78RPM's?

No it does not. Be aware you need a completely different stylus to properly play 78's in addition to the speed difference plus a different EQ curve in your phono preamp

What this turntable is for: Looks. The ability to play records.
What this turntable is NOT for: High quality analog sound.

I am not so educated on record players. What makes one record player better than another?

Compression doesn't really deal with CD vs vinyl in terms of sampling rates, they're different things. Compression means dynamic range of music being compressed so there is less jarring high vs low volume. Sound engineers pay big bucks to master their music which generally deals with some sort of compression. .wav files are lossless and is not the format CD music uses, btw (PCM stereo audio at 44khz). Of course you can BURN CDs into a digital .wav file, mp3 etc. If you mean compression in terms of smaller sampling then what you are trying to say is 44khz (CD quality) vs higher then 44khz such as 48khz. CD vs vinyl for dynamic compression should be the same, vinyl appearing to have less compression due to needle/cartridge sensitivity, arm balance, etc being drastically different then what the mastering engineer was using. In other words, most mastering engineers don't use vinyl to master music they use their computers and software using a lossless format which was recorded with 48khz or higher sampling rates. If you want a true audiophile experience (to sound like what the artist intended) you determine who mastered the music then pick up the same equipment as that person. The funny part is, it's difficult to do because when you mix then master music the sound engineer use possibly three or four systems to ensure it sounds good across the board. They mix in their car, studio monitors and headphones. Then they master using very hi-end speakers then move down to the incredibly crappy Avatone cubes.

Thanks. I am always curious because I used to know a couple guys in the industry (including a sound engineer), and they were all about speakers and amps, but none of them were into vinyl. Now everyone is into vinyl, and I never understood it. To me it always seemed like vacuum tubes (an effect, not superior fidelity). For me, I like highly finished, well-produced stuff over live recordings and such, and in general I like "cleaner" sound, if that means anything. Thanks for the info bro.

Out of curiosity, anyone know what format music encoded in on the USB outputs? Is it MP3 or something else? If so, what bit rate?

Fyi, I found the following: Output Signal: PCM 48kHz/16-bit

The USB shows up on your computer as an audio input device (sound card). You can use any audio recording application to record the contents of the record, usually an entire side at a time, splitting up into individual tracks after the recording is complete.

Anyone know if you can choose another power socket? I need EU 220v.

is this a RCA out or phono out?

Both I believe. I know it has both RCA to go to the phone preamp in a receiver and it also has a USB out to feed to a computer. After a pretty thorough check of inexpensive tables, I purchased this for my young nephew from Amazon for $219 several months ago. A critical factor was the cartridge that came with it, which is not bad at all, plus the capability to feed both to a separate phono preamp and USB. While the construction does feel a bit cheaper than say the base Pro-Ject table, I thought $219 was a good price, so $149 is an absolute steal for this great beginners table!

Wow, great video, thanks for sharing. The reviewer is thorough and very knowledgable. I agree 100% with his assessment based on his scientific approach. I am in the market for an entry level, high fidelity table for my son so I watched it with great interest. No matter how inexpensive a table is it needs to be either accurately built or have the capability to be adjusted accurately by the user in order to be considered high fidelity. The wow and flutter issues and stiff tonearm bearings are another matter but both are show stoppers. It is a minefield out there! FWIW I'll always be amazed that someone would go into a B&N this holiday season and potentially buy 4 or 5 LP's for $100 then get a $150 table to play them on. Yeah they might be very happy but the ratio is just off for me, LOL. LP's have never been better quality than they are now, new LP's are quite expensive, a great opportunity for really good vinyl sound, but this table might ruin that experience for someone. I bought a Technics DD table back in the mid 70's. It was my first "audiophile type" purchase and it cost me a lot of savings as a high school kid! But the shop I bought it at was a true high end store and adamant that spending any less would not provide a higher quality listening experience. Or front a system worthy of upgrading. It would appear that still holds true today.

This would be a great table for your son. See my answer to the above question... IMHO you can't go wrong.

I will not be buying from massdrop again... This turntable is an absolute waste of money and I bought 2 of them... They will not let me cancel my order only hrs after drop ended essentially telling me I'm stuck with them... I wish I had seen this review before I placed an order...

...... It shows clearly how much rubbish this drop is... I valued the massdrop community as providing quality items not cheap rip offs... Teac allows for a +-2% speed in the motor... This makes all music from this turntable garbage... Save your money and don't make the same mistake I made....

When it comes to audio equip, one must do really good "homework" before actually buying anything, or it ends like this, unfortunately.
Otherwise hands down, I suggest getting ATH. Their LP5 is actually excellent for that money.

This is an amazing review (even if it wasn't for this exact turntable). Great find! Thanks for sharing.

This is absolute rubbish: “The aluminum die-cast platter features an anti-skating design.” Anti-skating is a function of the tone arm. A tone arm will tend to be pulled toward the center of the platter due to rotational forces or rather “skate” towards the center due to a rotating platter. It is counteracted by applying an opposite force on the tone arm that is referred to as “anti-skating.” It it usually applied by either a spring or a tiny adjustable counterbalance usually equal to the cartridge manufacturer’s recommended tracking force. The platter can only contribute to “skating” by definition. It cannot reduce it without applying a countervailing force directly to the tone arm which is something that the platter cannot do.

"I’ve been around long enough to recognize a back-handed compliment. " And 'snark' too, apparently...can you recognize the tilting point where it becomes trolling?
"One doesn’t have to be thin skinned to discern insincerity. Context." -However, if one does become so bothered and defensive, one's skin is very likely to be - as you say - thin. Reaction.
Anyway, your proper initial response should have been "Thanks for letting us know that you know what 'conflation' is"...or something to that effect. That would have shut my snarky, ungrateful ass right up. Grrrrr-atitude.

I’m over it. I generally don’t respond to snark with snark. Why feed the beast? Unless I unleashed it first. Seems like we’re talking past each other. My initial comment was simply to help inform people about what anti-skating is and to therefore probably take Massdrop copy with a grain of salt. Maybe I over-reacted, maybe I didn’t. Maybe you were snarky, maybe you weren’t. Either way, I’ve said my peace and I was trying to be helpful to anyone who might have found it useful. Do with it what you will. Again, I’m over it. Hope you get where I was coming from on this. If you had your tongue planted firmly in your cheek and I didn’t get that, I’d only say that tone is hard to convey in text. Particularly when you don’t know the person you’re communicating with. Trust me, I’ve unintentionally started lots of arguments in text messages simply because my tone was misunderstood, by a FRIEND even. Had a friend of mine said what you said verbatim, I probably would have had a laugh about it. Cheers.
