Wonderful Turntable
 
What I have found is that it's a great buy for the $$$. The trick to it sounding very good is to make sure you have your arm balanced correctly. Sony gives excellent instructions on how to do this. I would recommend at some point upgrading the stylus to a Shure M97XE or better, but the Audio Technica one that comes with it is solid for the overall price of the turntable. If anyone is getting "sub par" performance of the turntable, either they aren't adjusting the arm to the correct pres...

Lukewarm out of the box, tinkerers may see value.
 
Picked this up about a month ago, open box in "excellent condition" from the Best Buy website. Most of the table was in said condition except for the dust cover which has a huge crack in it, tried to get it replaced via Sony's warranty program and was shot down due to it not effecting the operation of the table, whatever. The stock cartridge is okay, nothing special. It is user replaceable which is what I intended for it even before I bought the turntable, this is where a glaring issue arose. Th...

too much money for quality
 
I just cannot get into buying an expensive piece of hardware (to me) and getting such poor quality out of it...

Breathing new life into vinyl
 
There are plenty of turntables on the market for ripping of vinyl but in most cases it's a question of quantity over quality when ripping and none use their own proprietary software so there is a learning curve when recording. The PS-HX500 addresses all those issues - it is badged as Hi-Res Audio and quite rightly so. Playing vinyl is a joy. The ripping software is exclusive for this deck and although at first it looks basic it does a fantastic job of recording vinyl and retaining the warmth and...

My Sony PS-HX500
 
First, the deck was quite easy to set up, but with one proviso. My amp has a photo input, and I spent nearly half an hour wondering why I was getting terrible sound. Then I noticed in the manual the output switch. Now I knew the deck had a switchable output, but I didn't expect it to be set to Line by default, I expected it to work out of the box with a phono input. Maybe this could be made clearer in the manual. Anyway, once I had the deck working, there was some hum that the earthing le...

Elegant minimalism, adequate sonics, solid build.
 
Upon opening my Sony PS-HX500, my first impression was that this is a notably solid, sleek and premium feeling turntable. It fills a curious gap in a resurgent vinyl market: as either a top-end entry-level turntable or as the first steps into higher-end audiophile territory. If you’re looking for either then the PS-HX500 is likely to deliver exactly what you want. With no auto-play you have to manually cue records, but if you can slip a record out of its cover you can cue it up, so don...
