The CVS 14 looks like another piece of rebadged Hansin dreck (see also: Stanton, Numark, Audio Technica, etc.). This particular turntable, except for the "Edison" polarity switch, looks almost exactly like the Audio Technica AT LP120USB. It even has the cheesy plinth that plays like an electric drum when you tap it lightly with your finger. My unit had a crudely cast platter, cueing drift when the needle was lowered to the record, a tonearm that didn't track as well as the tonearm on my 40-year-old Dual 1229, and non-functioning antiskate. Rek-O-Kut suggested that the antiskate was merely "light" and offered to adjust it for me. It shouldn't have shipped from the factory in this condition, Rek-O-Kut, and, no, it wasn't light; it was broken. No amount of adjustment could have fixed it. I returned this unit, and I won't be getting another one.
