OPTIMUS LAB-1100 - PLUGS INTO AUX OR PHONO (1999)

Sounds really good with warm sound

Fully automatic which means press the start button to get it to auto start to track 1 from the tonearm rest; an auto return again at the end of the record

Features a pre-amp switch under the platter, then can be used plugging straight into AUX in on any amp or a powered speaker

There doesn't seem to be any loss of quality switching between PHONO or AUX

The belt and needle are good

The perspex lid is functional but could do with a polish but does it's job as is

This turntable is ready to go and has better sound than all others in this price range and certainly superior than those found at JayCar or JB HiFi and the like for twice the price!

There is no need to balance the arm or set up the anti-skate because that was all taken care of at the factory

Here are some reviews

"Reliable and sounds good 4 out of 5 reviewed on Jan 25, 2018
I too have had this Optimus LAB-1100 turntable in storage for years. I think I bought it in the early 2000s from either Dick Smith or JB HiFi. It's extremely versatile given that it can be hooked up as phono or line in and it genuinely sounds good. Unlike high end turntables that cost heaps and need regular adjustments this thing simply sounds good with minimum effort. It is also very reliable".

"Good 4 out of 5 reviewed on Aug 22, 2011
This turntable produces crystal clear sounds even to old vinyls of Kenny Rogers and George Strait. I'm happy with the belt-drive feature as it reduces turntable noise. I am enjoying this possession so far.

"Good for casual listening 4 out of 5 reviewed on Nov 11, 2016
I got mine second hand and have it connected to a decent phono amp and speakers and I find it definitely higher quality than an mp3. I don't have much experience with turntables so I'm only guessing but it is definitely good sounding to me. It's easy to use as it is automatic and you just have to press buttons".
