Exactly what I was expecting. I haven’t used all of the features on this item yet, but as far as straight forward basic playing of records, it’s exactly what I was expecting. The built in speakers are quite small, and don’t produce a lot of sound. Upon plugging in a pair of headphones, the volume was quite nice. But I’m not one to sit still and just listen to my records. So, for now, I grabbed a small boom box that I had collecting dust and used the 3.5mm to 3.5mm wire (that was included) to jack the audio out to the audio in on the boombox to amplify the sound a bit. And that’s worked fine for now (albeit, not perfect). But again, I knew this would probably be the case when I ordered it.I’ve yet to install the audio program that came with it, but looking at the specs, it appears to work on both mac and pc’s. From seeing images of the audio program, it looks like the free audacity program that you can download online. I’m not sure if there’s any additions to it. But I like and enjoy using…

Perfect for what it is I struggled with whether to give this item 4 or 5 stars. In the end, I chose 5 because, in my opinion, it is perfect for what it is: A great entry-level, easily portable or stored, USB turntable option.It remarkably reminds me of the vintage player I had as a kid in the late-70s/early-80s. And, it sounds about the same (meaning, passable but obviously not great). As a solution that allows me some nostalgia, to play records for my kids (“Hey Mom, what are those things?”), to bring my vinyl collection back to life, and then store somewhere in a closet until next time, it is great.As for the USB aspect, it took only a minute to configure my laptop (using Windows8.1) to see the turntable. It took a few more minutes and a reboot to install the software and make an actual test file. But, the main steps were detailed in the included documentation and additional details were available on-line. That said, one tip, the version of Audacity provided on CD is now…
