Check out this review of the HOUSE OF MARLEY Stir It Up Turntable conducted by our very own AVU Team!

$300 for a crappy belt driven wooden Turntable? should be called House of Pinocchio Turntable.
Adding stylus pressure because the armbearing sucks? Anti skating is only going to make it ‘drag’ more.
The Marley I looked at (didn’t test it, just had a little look at it in a record store) omitted this problem by having loads and LOADS of play on the arm.
Though they mounted a reasonable cartridge, causing the playet to sound okay-ish, it’s an absolute heap of junk that will ruin your records in the long run, only this one costs 3 times more than a crosley that wll do just that.
I say; U-turn orbit, affordable phono preamp. You save money AND you don’t ruin your records.
U-Turn Turntables are a much better quality buy at $179.00 and up.
THE AT LP 20 COSTS LEST GUYS GO BUY THAT IT IS AMAZING
Not only is the tonearm poor, it doesn’t use the now standard headshell. The name alone is enough to put me off liking it. And why not with a name like that make it from American hemp and not Chinese bamboo.
That was pretty dumb to bring up the terrible part that had nothing to do with the record player.
So you need headphones or and external amp to listen to the music ?
It’s $199, and you didn’t add the counterweight which allows you to level it before adding pressure to the cartridge (see the turning dial on the front of the counterweight). I always wonder about this kind of misinformation.
I want a modern high-end turntable that plays 16, 33, 45, and 78.
