How do you attach the clear cover? Instructions not clear in that respect.

Sounds as good as it looks.

I wanted this TT when I first saw it advertised. It looks great with the wooden plinth, the black tonearm mechanism, and black lettering. I also liked its simplicity. So, I bought it, but I was not sure if it would be an improvement over my AT LP 120xusb. I did do with the thought if it's not an improvement I'll send it back. But, it was a nice improvement. It provides a better sound; Nicer highs and fuller lows. It brings more overall brilliance to the music. And since it comes with the ATVM95E you'll have several stylus upgrades. I played several different LPs that I use to test records. The 40 breezed through all the different music I threw it's way. I have a few problems. I comes with a very limited manual. Not a problem if one has some experience, but I can see a newbie getting very confused. And, hinges were so taunt that they were very difficult to attach to the dust cover. It seems there must be a better way. But those are minor issues. This is a very nice turntable. It's nice to look at and sounds great.

Pros: Looks, simplicity, sounds good.

Cons: Needs better manual, and easier to attach hinges.

Sounds good, stylish

Most importantly, this turn table sounds great. I have it plugged in to an old Kenwood receiver and some old Infiniti bookshelf speakers. Makes vinyl that sounded "OK" on my own turntable sound twice as good. Secondly, the wood grain looks great in my living room and complements the laid-back, modern style that my wife is going for.

I seriously wanted to like this but...

I seriously wanted to like this turntable! I ordered one of these and was initially impressed by it's looks, nice tonearm, and decent sound. After about 5 albums plays the speed became unstable and the motor was running loud. I checked the belt to make sure it was still properly in place and it was. I turned the table off and then tried it again. Loud motor and inconsistant speed. After a few trys the speed selector switch stopped working and the platter would not turn on. I sent it back and received another one a few weeks later. The second unit exhibited the same trouble only it took a little longer for it to develop. I believe the platter is way too light and the motor is too weak to make this a stable playing turntable. Just to clarify, I ordered this directly from Audio-Technica so it was, in no way, Crutchfield's fault. I did, however, come to Crutchfield and purchased the Music Hall 2.3 Special. It has been absolutely fantastic! DO NOT PURCHASE THIS TURNTABLE!! It is not the usual AT quality and is not manufactured by AT. I hope this saves you some frustration.

Pros: Nice appearance, decent tonearm and cartridge

Cons: Very inconsistant speed, unexceptable wow and flutter. Weak motor and cheap, lightweight, platter.
