At this price point it offers excellent value both sonically and, to my eyes, aesthetically. The only thing this deck does not seem to provide is a romantic, rose-tinted-lens view of the music. It seems quite honest in its sonic behaviour. It will let you know that a record is past its best, but doesn’t make it the centre of the listener’s attention. The focus is always on the musical content of the grooves. Throughout my listening I felt involved in the music, rather than just listening to it, which is surely the whole point of the exercise. Recommended.
