my first turntable and WOW what a buy... ive eared many others spinners up to 200€ and most where those "suitcase DJ" type, with so much plastic and no charm at all. I saw the simplicity, the curves and the reviews so i bought a genie for me! cheap, fuzz-free, light - ive upgraded original ortophon MM 3E cartridge to the latest winner M2 RED... sweet! Downside? no colours available in 2007 - only the latest flourescent redish orange... outch!
I love it! highly recommended
Bought the MK2 as a stop-gap. The fitted Ortofon cartridge is pretty crude and the Genie deserves much better. I've fitted a Denon 160 which is considerably better and not too expensive. Bass is firm, though not that deep, Mid is clear and vocals articulate. Treble is probably a little soft, but that keeps it sweet. I'll probably still upgrade at some stage, but I'm not in any rush now, which will give me time to save my pennies... Overall, a little workhorse with a bit more character than a Rega - a lot cheaper too!
First turntable after 25 yrs of neglect of my LPs...Simple to set-up. Looks great and understated. Link between motor and chassis a bit un-reassuring to say the least but works vey nicely ! Excellent price/result ratio. Love it.

It has its drawbacks, but this Panasonic is easy to live with and has an insightful and dynamic picture performance – it’s a great set
The AVR-X2000 brings Denon back to the AV receiver top table in this ultra-competitive price category
A decent, affordable effort from Otone but sound quality is tainted by a distracting brightness
