"It seems absurd to call a $1,500/£1,400 turntable a steal, but that’s just what the Marantz TT-15S1 is. For the money, you get a gorgeous turntable that sounds incredible. The Clearaudio Virtuoso cartridge tracks beautifully, has excellent dynamic range and digs for details you didn’t know were there. If you’re becoming a serious vinyl collector, the TT-15S1 deserves an audition."
"I’ve inadvertently landed on something that has for decades defined Marantz turntables: an obsessive, fearlessly forward-thinking, near-molecular jiggering with sound quality. The company is leagues ahead of everything happening in analog technology."
"Historically, Marantz is a company that has never compromised on its belief that sound quality is placed first and foremost. If you look at their current reference line of two-channel equipment, you’ll appreciate the effort made to not only preserve the legacy but to promote that belief. The Marantz TT-15S1 turntable is such a piece."
"Certainly, the Marantz TT-15S1 Reference Belt Drive Turntable isn't cheap, and it really isn't made as an entry-level turntable. But those who own and love using this turntable repeatedly call it an incredibly great value, as it delivers more features than what you normally find for the price."
