Although the automatic cutoff can be a useful feature on any turntable, it can sometimes lead to unwanted interference. This is almost always the case with inexpensive turntables with features like automatic cutoff.

However, we do have the Pro-Ject 1Xpression Mk III Comfort, where have managed to introduce an auto cutoff with minimal impact upon the performance of the arm. For our other turntables, we recommend the use of the Q-up, which manually lifts the tonearm at the completion of a record.
