All the must-have features audiophiles demand for top-flight musical reproduction are here: a quiet belt-drive system with a mechanically-isolated motor that eliminates any residual motor noise and vibration, a heavy die-cast aluminum platter that ensures an exemplary signal-to-noise ratio, a rubber non-slip mat so there’s no record slippage, imperceptible wow and flutter and a low-mass straight tonearm with adjustable counterweight and precision damped cueing. Akai Professional's unique leveling bubble with adjustable feet ensures a perfectly level needle drop. The result is optimal sound. A high-quality pre-mounted Audio-Technica magnetic cartridge with elliptical stylus in removable headshell completes the package.
In addition, the BT500 has many new school flourishes that make it even more enjoyable and convenient, such as a built-in switchable phono pre-amp so you can use it with a traditional stereo or connect it directly to powered speakers. The BT500 is also a wireless streaming turntable, so you can stream your vinyl to any Bluetooth-enabled speaker (sold separately). The BT500 also boasts the ability to convert your analog records into digital files using the included software and USB port for quick computer connectivity.

Comments about Akai Professional BT500 Belt Drive Streaming Record Player:
This turntable is not only beautiful, but the playability and craftsmanship is fantastic. The weighted arm is very nice and having a level to know the base is level is a nice tough. My only thing is, I wish the volume worked for external speakers rather than just headphones.
