How to use guide and features

Sound Quality

The Motorino II sounds fantastic for its asking price! The player has that soft warm soulful sound via headphones or in ear monitors. The mids has that sweet touch of vocals wherein you can clearly hear the voice (and sometimes even the breathing of the artist). Highs is there, but it's not that prominent which makes me I miss the sparkle in some songs. (Maybe the amp used has something to do with it). The sound presentation is wide too and the only downside I can hear is the little crackle with its sound which is normal with vinyl players without a pass filter pre-amp to filter the noise.

Speaker test

The in house made speaker used with the Motorino II is surprisingly loud! It has a fast tight bass even though it lacks some midbass. The mids is great as usual as has that good sparkling highs. The sound presentation is very wide too thanks to its dual speakers.

Overall the Motorino II is a good music source. Just add in your favorite speakers and headphones and you're now ready to hear high quality music.

Verdict

A perfect gift for your loved ones who's addicted to good music and those who want to enter the world of vinyl! Considering that this is just an entry level vinyl player, the Motorino II punches way above its price point with all those features. It that has above average sound output, great design, very portable and premium looking build quality. For a starter in the world of vinyls, you cannot go wrong with the Motorino II!
