The Innovative Technology ITVS-200B 6-In-1 Turntable is a product with multiple functions, all of which offer a lot to the music lover. It plays records of course, but you can also use it to listen to the radio or your old tapes and cds. Using this product is fairly simple. The fact that this machine is so easy to use is really surprising. Once you learn how to use the machine, then you will be on your way to hours of aural enjoyment.
When you first get the machine, then you will probably first notice its’ size. This is quite a hefty machine-it weighs about twenty pounds-which means that it is quite sturdy as well. The reason it weighs so much is because the amount that is packed into it. Within its’ fairly retro case, you will find different audio players to do different jobs. The turntable is on the top of the machine.
Using the turntable is not difficult. You simply place your record in, move the needle into the groove and the player takes care of the rest. I found that I was able to play several of my older records without a problem. I thought that the sound quality of the built-in speakers was very nice but this can be added to if you want to plug in some external speakers. The tones produced by these inbuilt speakers were quite warm and full. The tape player is located on the back of the machine near the lower right corner. It was a bit hard for me to find, actually, when I first received the machine, I thought that there was simply no tape player. Anyways, once you do find it, all you need to do is place your cassette in the slot. The machine begins playing your tape automatically. The sound quality for tapes isn’t bad either. I found that my older tapes actually sounded pretty good with this machine. The CD(compact-disc) player is located at the front of the machine. It is very easy to use this as well. I would simply place my discs in the machine and press the play button. The sound quality was uniformly excellent.
I also used the machine to listen to the radio. There is a tuning knob located in the middle of the machine that you turn to select different radio stations. I was able to access the stations that I normally listen to pretty easily. I also was glad to have two aux inputs because this meant that I could listen with my headphones as well. Also, it was very easy to use the Bluetooth with the speakers that I have in my house. This meant that I could have surround sound whenever I wanted.
I would suggest this product if you want an all-in one product that plays records, compact discs, and cassettes. This product manages to play all these formats very well. I think that the overall sound quality of this product is very good. Of course, you will have distortion from the tapes and records but this is to be expected. This product is very convenient and easy to use. I highly recommend it.
