You know, I was so excited to review this record player. We moved into a traditional mid-century modern home in December and started collecting records at the same time as we love all things from that time era. However, we didn’t have a record player to play them on. Until I found this 1byone Belt-Drive 3-Speed Portable Stereo Turntable with Built in Speakers, Supports RCA Output / Headphone Jack / MP3 / Mobile Phones Music Playback, Turquoise
The price was right. Less then $100. In fact, as of today it’s only $76.99 on Amazon HERE right now. Plus, it goes with the theme we have going and color scheme too!
When I first opened the box, I was so excited. We unwrapped our new mint condition records to play them. 33 records to be exact. But we noticed a problem right away. Some of our 33 records would play on higher speeds, like 45 or 78 and the other half of our records skipped terribly. You see, the platter that the records sit on was terribly wobbly. We stopped playing our records so that they would not get ruined by the defect in the player.
I contacted the manufacturer and they offered to send me another one, ensuring me that it would not be the case with the next player.
When my new player arrived, I was sadly surprised that the same exact defect existed and it appeared this was a problem in the design itself. I also noticed that the sound is really high in treble but almost no base at all and no way to adjust it. It sort of sounds like its coming through a tunnel.
The record player is super cute but I don’t recommend it to my readers. After having the same problem with two brand new players with brand new records, it’s clear to me that the manufacturer was more focused on the look than the function. 🙁
We now have two defective records players… hoping to find a good player to play our collection soon! Will keep you posted when we find one!
