Enjoy your vinyl records any time, any time with the Sony PSHX500 USB Turntable!

Vinyl record sales are at their highest for 20 years as music lovers rediscover the beautifully warm, rich sound that really brings your favourite music to life.

But this sleek Sony turntable also features High Res Audio Recorder software, which transforms your records into either a WAV (up to 24-bit/192kHz) or DSD file (5.6MHz), so you can keep a high-quality digital copy on your smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC.

Thanks to Analogue to Digital Convertor (ADC) technology, you simply plug your turntable into your laptop or PC via USB and then rip your records using the finest quality digital audio.

But the Sony PSHX500 is mainly designed for listening to, letting you soak up the rich sound of analogue music whenever you fancy. The design is simple and sleek so it will blend in with any home decor, but the build quality is high in all aspects.

A high quality, straight tonearm features a lightweight headshell and moving-magnet cartridge that give you optimised sound performance across the frequency range and lower distortion, which means sweet, soaring harmonies and deep, rich bass.

A built-in phono stage means all you need to do is connect up to an AUX input on your hifi or speaker. You can switch the speed between 33 and 45rpm, so it's suitable for 7, 10 and 12 inch records.
