What Hi-Fi 5 Star Review
"It's a best-of-both turntable that caters for record spinning and hi-res ripping, and to anyone torn between their affection for the nostalgia and tangibility of vinyl, and the convenience and practicality of digital. As always, performance is king, though, and in this instance that only furthers the Sony’s likeability" "
