"The process is simple enough too: just choose your desired format, hit 'record' when the vinyl starts playing, 'stop' when it's finished and hey presto! You have a hi-res song." "Elsewhere the PS-HX500 behaves and looks very much like a typical turntable." "There's no mistaking the Sony's penchant for detail." "Has the dynamic dexterity to bring fairly tenuous sonic shifts to our attention." "A best-of-both turntable that caters for record spinning and hi-res ripping."
