I'm an audio technical engineer, so I'm quite picky on sound quality, but also on a budget ;) This table is pretty good overall, like it's impressive! I've been using mine for 3 years now and it still plays great. I had to dowload an RPM app on my phone to calibrate the speed twice but it's easy to do. There is a screw under the table, so you place your phone on it, it displays the amount of RPM you got and you adjust your screw until you get it perfect. If you are looking for the best for less, this is it without a doubt. For the output level, it is very low. I have to push my amplifier pretty high to play it. But the sound clarity is great and I listen to djent, hardcore and brutal stuff. The bass, the highs , all sounds better than the 320kps version of songs played directly from my pc into the same amplifier via an optical fiber. I tried buying a pre-amp to put in-between but it detoriated the sound so I'd rather just crank up the old amplifier until I can get a good pre-amp. To summarize: If it breaks tomorrow, I'm getting the same thing again!
