dustcover? sturdy? ( I have cats)
A shopper on Jul 7, 2021
  This record player is a nicely engineered unit. Its chassis is a rigid, but damped combination of stainless steel and alloy topped off by an acrylic top panel. So it is definitely durable and does have dust cover to keep pets out. We would highly recommend this turntable for top quality and longevity. Thanks for your question
