A phonograph is a device that has been used to bring music into our lives. Since the 18th century, phonographs had undergone several changes. Nowadays, they are combined with the latest technology. One of the examples is the Pyle Home PTCDS2UI classic turntable. Aesthetically, it comes sturdy and classic just like old phonographs, and at the same time it offers excellent sound quality
The turntable has a wood-crafted casing which reveals its elegant look. Despite its vintage look, though, this record player has outstanding modern features that make digitizing comfortable and convenient. It’s equipped with control devices, three speeds, playback options, AM or FM radio, CD player, aux-in jack for MP3 players, cassette deck, and even an iPod dock.
There’s also a USB record feature that easily records your old vinyl tunes as well as tunes from other aux-in sources. The converted tunes can later be played using your digital music player. PTCDS2UI offers an iPod dock that you can use to play music from your iPhone or iPod. All in all, this product promises customers nothing but the convenience and paramount service.

It is an all-in turntable that you can find just once in a lifetime. Imagine having a professional turntable which has an iPod player, and has AM/FM Radio/CD/Cassette/USB. The device just has everything you might need in a turntable.
The only flaw which customers find about this product is that the instruction manual provided is quite difficult and confusing to use. Owners find the manual as too lengthy. It has no index, which makes it difficult to search for topics or instructions. Also, there is no clear indicator to let you know whether the machine is actually starting to record. As a result, you might end up making several attempts at recording.
