Thanks to the built-in phono equalizer, the TT5005 is an easy to set-up turntable that can work with any amplifier or receiver – even it doesn’t have a dedicated phono input. It’s also effortless to operate, thanks to the start-stop system that automatically places and replaces the tone-arm, and which also helps ensure you do not accidentally scratch the vinyl. Its rigid die-cast aluminium platter produces uniform inertial mass for perfectly stable and consistent rotation. In addition, the TT5005 comes with an MM cartridge so that you can begin to enjoy your analogue record collection as soon as you connect the TT5005 to your home hi-fi system. If you’re looking for a good quality brand of turntable that’s easy to set-up and use, then the Marantz TT5005 is ideal. With a pre-set tone arm and attached MM cartridge, the TT5005 is ready to go. It also has a built-in phono pre-amp, meaning that the turntable will work with any hi-fi that has an RCA auxiliary input. Automatic tone arm operation returns the arm at the end of each side and selecting the speed is easily controlled by a button rather than manually moving the belt on its pulley. The belt drive system gives a naturally well-damped and low distortion sound quality. Solid construction, including an aluminium platter further enhances the sound quality by resisting mechanical interference. Little larger than a record itself, the Marantz TT5005 is more compact than most turntables and easy to place. The low profile lid keeps the dust out and helps keep the style neat and unobtrusive. Perfect for bringing life back to your vinyl collection, the Marantz TT5005 is a solid performer.
