What is your opinion of this product?
So Ive spent the last 10 years collecting rare vinyl unknowingly. I searched for a reasonable record player. Came across crossly .. OMFG biggest mistake ever. I moved on up to a Pioneer. It was ok... just not what i hoped for. I just recently looked this Akai up i figured it wasn't super expensive or on the cheap side. BOY AM I GLAD I Purchased this table. Ive paired this table with a Woburn Marshall Bluetooth amp. Seriously this thing is beautiful and sounds AMAZING! I will actually buy one for my brother and dad for xmas thats how much i loved this rec table.
