Sometimes it’s hard to decide what kind of turntable you want, simply because there are too many choices. It’s confusing enough to try and understand what all those specs mean, particularly if you are not familiar with it – what more if you were bombarded with several choices? It can be a stressful task especially if your heart is not set on buying a turntable in the first place. You may want to buy something more modern; something that can play your MP3 files. What’s worse is that your budget may be limited. You have to stop and wonder: why can’t we just have it all? Well, with the Boytone BT-17DJ 3-Speed Stereo Turntable, you can finally “have it all”. On this review we will discuss everything that comes with this amazing turntable. Let us begin this guide by saying that it comes at a price of less than $80 dollars, so prepare to be impressed.
Let us begin with the model’s external appearance. Basically, it appears to be a regular turntable set on top of what looks like a stereo… that is because it is actually a turntable set on top of a stereo. That’s the beauty of it: it’s like buying two products for the price of one. But that’s not all: this model also comes with two built-in speakers, and even a cassette player! The whole ensemble is presented in a black, modern design, perfect for those homeowners who like collecting vinyl records, love playing them, but don’t want to look old-fashioned. This will blend in well with the rest of your high-tech sound equipment.
Speaking of the turntable itself, it is a direct drive machine that can play your music at one of three speeds, 33-1/3, 45, and 78 RPM. That’s good if you have a lot of LPs lying around your house and you know that they were recorded at different speeds. This means the turntable is compatible with all of them. Meanwhile, the built-in AM/FM radio has a digital display, as well as a frequency range of 88 to 108MHz for FM and 540 to 1,600 kHz for AM. The stereo, speakers, cassette player, and the turntable can all be accessed through a remote control. As if all of those features weren’t enough, this turntable also lets you convert your old LPs into digital MP3 files by putting in a blank CD.
Being a direct drive turntable, this can be used by aspiring DJs. But the great thing about this model is that it caters for those casual users as well. Whether you want to use this for DJ-ing, or for casual listening, the audio quality is bound to impress you. It makes use of a special bass-boost technology to enhance the bass tones and make it richer. With its great sound packaged with great style this is recommended for music lovers of all kinds.
With this affordable machine, you can enjoy all of your favorite tunes, both classic and modern, without hassle. As the manufacturers promised, it will deliver music from almost every generation. This turntable gives you lots of freedom to enjoy your music any which way you want it.
