In this 1 BY ONE H004 review, I will tell you about a real Hi-Fi system for playing vinyl records. This quality-built deck, complete with powerful speakers, will immerse you in the world of vinyl, illuminating all facets of analog sound. Stylish and multifunctional with quality elements, it can satisfy the wishes even of sophisticated audiophiles.
Build up quality
First of all, you’ll have to make room for this 20.9-pound ” babe.” The deck itself is very elegant, measuring 16.34 x 14.17 x 5.51 inches in a wood finish on insulated feet, providing excellent stability even on not the most plane surface. Two speakers in the same finish measure 6.3 x 6.2 x 9.8 inches. The complete system looks luxurious and will fit in any interior. And the dust cover will keep the player from getting dirty.
On the deck, there is a heavy iron plate (3,7 lb.) with a 28 cm radius, creating equal inertial mass for ideal stability and rotation, a straight tonearm, and control buttons. And you’ll also find a Slip Mat, power adapter, 45 RPM adapter, USB cable for PC connection, speaker audio cables, cartridge setup card, and instruction manual in the package.
The 1 BY ONE H004 turntable features a low-noise DC motor, vibration-absorbing belt drive, and manual controls so you won’t be disturbed by noise when listening to records at two speeds of 33-1/3 or 45 rpm. The static-balanced tonearm has a pre-installed Audio-Technica AT3600L MM cartridge of excellent quality. By the way, the Anti-Skating system is another plus for controlling the sound. Be sure you’ll get impressive precision in extracting tunes without distortion.
The built-in phono stage saves you the expense, but it can always be switched to the Line position and connected externally if you want to. And you can connect to 36-watt speakers from any device using Bluetooth.
In addition, the H004 allows you to record vinyl to MP3. For this purpose, it comes with a cable to connect to a PC. Overall, I am genuinely impressed with the capabilities of this player.
I have referred the 1 BY ONE H004 record player to the middle segment, but considering its appearance, all functions, features, and quality, it deserves to be referred to a higher level. The speakers play records with bright high frequencies, smooth bass, and soft midrange. The frequency range is 50Hz-20KHz, and wow and flutter is less than 0.15, as stated by the manufacturer. The system sounds loud and can fill even a large room with sound. It will also sound good and clear outdoors without sound dispersion. Stability and balance provide decent detail. Bluetooth and the ability to record vinyl to MP3s are in line with current trends, putting the H004 at the top of the price/performance ratio for me.
