Description

The only negative I will point out with the tonearm is that the clip that holds it in its cradle is a bit too firm, and the review unit I received from House of Marley had a groove scratched on it from use. With a focus on sustainability and style, the Stir It Up Turntable (named after one of his classic tunes) is on a mission to show you can have it all. The Bluetooth connectivity is quick and easy, as long as you turn off all other Bluetooth sources close to the turntable (it will connect to the strongest signal – you don’t get to pick).

The aluminum tonearm is lighter, which House of Marley says makes for improved tracking and less distortion, and the headshell is still stamped with the green, yellow, and red stripes of the Rastafari, a nice nod to the company’s iconic namesake.Along with the excellent and cool-looking bamboo plinth, there's a recyclable aluminum alloy platter and, around the edges, a black fabric made of 30% organic cotton, 30% reclaimed hemp, and 40% recycled polyethylene terephthalate. Obviously, users who are interested in sustainability will understand that those clear plastic shells that act as dust covers on most every other turntable are terrible for the environment. I have seen some reviews of this turntable that have found the tonearm difficult to balance for setting up the correct weight on the stylus. It took a couple minutes at most, and I was able to place my record immediately after and enjoy skip-free listening.

The glass platter helps here too – its added mass and inertia help maintain a consistent rotation speed, leaving you to enjoy a listening experience that’s sharp, clear and true to its roots. The only thing missing from the Stir It Up Lux is a dust cover, which this line of turntables has never included. Maybe you've noticed that your Roku device hasn't been working as fast lately, or you've encountered a glitch or two with some of your favorite apps. Whatever the case, if you're looking for some solid streaming deals, you've come to the right place. I honestly have NO IDEA why House of Marley built such a beautiful turntable, but included a black fabric dust cover which hides the awesome design.Pairing is easily done by pressing the speed dial, which, after pairing, also acts as a volume dial. The dial has a red light around it when it's simply on, then a blinking blue light when you activate pairing mode, and a solid blue ring when it's paired. A good idea in theory, and points for originality, but experiencing it required shining an 11Hz strobe light on it or filming it with a camera that shoots in 11 frames per second.

I also noticed mechanical noise from the turntable, not enough to be spoil the music, but a bad sign.The House Of Marley Stir It Up turntable passed this test with ease, reproducing Marley's classic Caribbean cuts with power and clarity.

On the tonearm, there is an adjustable counterweight, anti-skating control, and a lever for lifting the tonearm. The bamboo plinth that forms much of the exterior is easy on the eyes, whose neutral color makes it easy to fit into any room's aesthetic. Listening to “Stay in Time” from the 1979 album On, by Illinois power pop band Off Broadway, I was impressed by how quietly the Stir It Up played back this used copy that, while in pretty good shape, still looked like it would have a good amount of pop and crackle.House of Marley also bundles the Stir It Up Lux with smaller bookshelf speakers if you want to purchase both the turntable and speakers in one go.
