Great clean sound, easy to use and easy to convert to mp3, bought as a replacement player for elderly parents to use to spin their records, good feedback from them. Would have given 5 stars if there were options to purchase with compatible speakers or spare stylus as was a bit of a hack with adapters to get our speakers working.

Lenco L-85 Turntable with USB Direct Recording – Yellow : Great turn table for begginers, easy to set up and to listen and love the color.

Bought for my husband for christmas,he loves it.

Really pleased with this item. Easy to set up and god sound quality once connected to decent speakers.

Great sound quality, needs speakers (comes in original packaging). Overall extremely happy with this purchase. Great sound quality, and very easy to transport from room to room (or to another house entirely). Unlike other turntables at this price range, this will not damage records, and sound comes out crisp and clear. Notably, you need to hook up speakers to this, or it won’t play at all. The only complaint i have is about shipping– this was shipped in its original box, meaning when my husband brought it into the house, he knew exactly what it was (it was his birthday gift). Be careful if this is a gift– tick the gift option, and hope for the best that your surprise won’t be ruined.

I’ve been using this turntable for almost a. I’ve been using this turntable for almost a week and don’t have a single complaint. Great colour, great quality and incredibly easy to connect to speakers. Don’t worry too much about the little cable that comes with it; if you have a pair of speakers that have a 3. 5mm jack, make sure to order a 3. They’re less than £10 and work wonderfully well.

I wanted a nice and affordable turntable so i could play some new and old records and it hasn’t disappointed me. I took a gamble here as there didn’t seem to be any reviews i could find online at all but i went with this because i was very wary of the crosley cruiser which is apparently notorious for quickly degrading records and the cheaper ones seemed an even a bigger gamble. The unit isn’t too big, quite light and the raised feet certainly helped me find a place for it amongst my limited space. A clear dust cover was a nice touch, i wanna see those records spinthe sound is really good, no noticeable skipping and the quality is almost as good as a cd as long as you keep your records clean (a carbon fibre brush is good for this) and store them properly (don’t stack them on top of each other). There’s a function to record straight to a usb stick but i have no plans to use this feature. If you just want to play vinyl, can’t go too wrong with this lencojust as a disclaimer i did not buy this from amazon but i figured i might as well be the first to put down a review on here and help people out :).

I use it with a set of bose. I use it with a set of bose pc speakers and it has almost too much bass. Very compact and with the ability to use small additional active speakers is a huge improvement on the retro-style built-in speaker variety prevalent in many shops. Spend a little more and get a deck like this that actually sounds good.

Excellent quality on a budget. I was recommended this record player by whathifi, on the basis it was one of the best value for money record players and it did not disappoint. Excellent quality record player. It plays effieciently and is paired up well with my sounds system. Dust can be a bit of a nightmare on the perspex cover so be careful when wiping it off as it will generate static electricity. Autostop tone arm is excellent. Much better than the awful crosley cruiser i used to own.

Leno l-85 turntable with usb direct recording. Lenco turntable with sub recording is very goodi.

  1. Lenco l-85 plug and play usb turntable, an ideal entry into the world of vinyl. After having no usable turntable for more than 5 years, i took the chance and ordered this record player from look again after seeing very a favourable 4/5 review in what hifi sound and vision magazine. After lengthy supply delays and a generous 15% discount (from £110), i finally received the lenco l-85 (not to be confused with the lenco l85, which is a much older model). The build quality for such a low priced player is excellent, it’s weighty, doesn’t feel like a toy, and the hinges on the lid are dampend so the lid doesn’t open or close with a jolt. The arm feels balanced and settles down in the groove with an audible through the speaker, satisfying sound. Setup was a cinch as the arm’s anti skating mechanism is factory set, the belt was still in place around the motor and needed no manual placement as it suggests it may need in the instruction book. The preamp is on by default and can’t be turned off. If you wish to use it without, you would need to directly connect the wires from the arm to the output sockets at the back, as this is how standard turntables are built. Sound wise, the audio quality at this price level is remarkable, though not the last word when compared to the likes of the rega p3 or the pro-ject rpm1, these give you a lot more finesse and the subtlety you’d expect from more expensive turntables. Having said that, bass is tight and the timing is spot on, and the upper levels have range and presence that make listening to the lenco and pleasure.

    1. I bought this simply because i have hundreds of old vinyl albums and haven’t had anything to play them on for a while. I had an old early computerised deck that gave up the ghost when the microchip failed (it’s purpose was to ensure the deck’s constant speed). While i agree to a certain extent that vinyl sounds better than cd, in general cd wins due to its ease of use (you don’t need to get the album copied to a format you can play in the car, you don’t have to keep turning it over. ), however i did want to listen to some of my old stuff. Converting it to mp3 is also a great bonus since getting a ‘car’ format is a lot easier. I realise from reading other reviews that there are a lot of people who don’t understand hifi, so here’s the best way to set up this deck. Firstly you will need a decent amplifier and even more important, decent speakers. If you don’t have good ancillary equipment you will probably not get any of the pluses that come from vinyl recordings. I have a pair of 1970s celestion speakers that reflect the high standards required of audio equipment during that era (people would never have stood for mp3 quality for listening at home – acceptable for car but when you want to sit down and listen to music, never).

  4. As far as turntables go i’m not very experienced, but i came across this in a list of budget ones, and i’m glad i didit came very quickly with standard delivery, the setup was easy, plugging into a new set of speakers, and it works like a dreamnaturally due to a decreased price there are a few noticeable issues: the arm is a bit light and cam skip with impact, and the build seems a bit plasticy and not as solid as the more upmarket turntables. But for its price range this is one fantastic turntable.

    The duplo block of vinyl record players. No thrills and no spills but it works well for the money i would rather ditch the mp3 recording option in favour of a 78 speed.

    1. Look at my video on youtube to show you how easy it is to record from vinyl with no software. Of course it does depend on what condition your vinyl is in.
