Audio Technica AT-LP60 Turntables

Audio Technica AT-LP60 Turntable offers quality, affordable hi-tech hi-fi performance like no other. Transform your old 45 RPM and 33-1/3 records into a hi-fi, state-of-the-art audio equipment with the Audio Technica AT-LP60 Turntable. Audio Technica is an innovator in hi-tech audio equipment and tonearm designs. With its two-year warranty and easy compatibility with PC interface drive systems, it’s hard to believe this is an old phonograph.

The Audio Technica AT-LP60 Turntable comes equipped with its own Audio-technica Dual Magnet Phono cartridge along with a replaceable tonearm. To eliminate tonal inconsistencies and improve consistency, a high performance bearing called the “flying lift” is included. The Audio Technica AT-LP60 Turntable also features a high performance braking system that utilizes ball bearings for maximum smoothness. In addition to its efficient drive function, the tonearm of the AT-LP 60 has an aluminum bearing that produces pinpoint accuracy and durability. The AT-LP also offers a heavy-duty two-way aluminum tonearm with a high precision dual rotating drum. The high-precision, pre-tuned, dual locking tonearm eliminates mechanical grinding and offers smooth tracking throughout its complete range of frequencies.

Audio Technica AT-LP60 Turntable also features built in signal conditioning with built in equalizer. With built in signal conditioning, users need not concern themselves with any problems associated with power supply. In addition, the AT-LP60 Turntable offers user friendly controls which eliminate the need for complex setup. All controls are easily user programmable and a safety lock is provided to assure maximum protection from damage. A conveniently placed safety lock allows safe operation of the AT-LP60 Turntables regardless of the positioning of the speakers.

Built in speakers, also called “line-ins”, allow users to connect their personal stereo system or their head units via the audio system output on the front of the AT-LP60. The on-board sound processor controls all functions such as volume, tuning, balance and bass. The start button starts the process of recording and other controls allow users to navigate through the tracks. An “Eject” button is provided for convenience in removing the turntables without disconnecting the cables from the wall or floor stand.

Like most other AT-Ps, the AT-LP60 has two basic models, each with a differing number of drive motors. The AT-LP-60S model has a built in phaser/tone controller for additional tonal options. The AT-LP-60M model incorporates an internal amp and includes two speakers. With all the different setup options, there is certainly an AT-LP60 to meet any user’s needs. Most consumer reviews have indicated that the Audio Technica AT-LP60 with its tonal options and built in phaser/tone controller offers a rich, natural sound quality.

Many audiophiles will find it difficult to choose between the Audio Technica AT-LP60 turntables because they all offer similar features. However, they all perform very well thanks to their high quality engineering and tonal options. The internal pre-amp within the AT-LP60 allows you to operate your turntables at maximum efficiency while maintaining high levels of sound quality. In addition, most models come with an audio interface that connects the output of the toner or phaser to the input of the internal pre-amp.

  1. The Audio Technica LP60x is an excellent turntable, particularly for those who want to start collecting and playing records. It is unrivaled for the price, as it not only looks fantastic but also produces an incredible sound! The redesign gives it a much more modern/sleek finish than its predecessor, accomplished by minor variations that, when placed on a stand, make the turntable look comparable to the $400$ equivalents on the market. I like how easy it is to slide the dust cover on or off depending on your mood. The build quality isn’t the best, since it’s mostly made of plastic, but it never interferes with use or appearance. The only disadvantage may be the inability to change cartridges; however, for beginners, this should not be a problem since the stock cartridge works well and will last until you decide to upgrade if that is what you want. The setup is extremely simple and convenient, making it ideal for beginners or anyone who values convenience! You can operate the turntable either automatically or manually, which is ideal for me because I like to drop the needle myself but have it reset automatically when the record is finished. So far, I’ve checked the player with about 30 records, half of which are old and half of which are new, and they all play perfectly! Overall, you’d be hard pressed to find a better turntable at this price, and it’s a world apart from paying marginally less for a suitcase player. If you have more experience or a larger budget, the LP120 is a great choice that you probably won’t need to upgrade from, but Audio Technica is the way to go, and I am very pleased with my LP60x.

  2. This turntable is really inexpensive, and I would strongly recommend it to collectors who are new to the hobby and do not want to spend a lot of money. So far, I’ve had no problems with it, and it’s a great upgrade from the little suitcase turntable I started with.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: For those that aren’t super tech-savvy or are new to the vinyl scene, you CANNOT Purchase THE RECORD PLAYER ALONE TO LISTEN TO Music. You *must* purchase a collection of speakers. If the speakers are passive (rather than active), you’ll also need an amplifier and speaker cable. The ATLP60 comes with one of the speaker cables you’ll need, but you’ll have to purchase the rest separately. I had to do a lot of research to find this out because it’s one of those stuff that nobody ever teaches you about. Fortunately, I had a friend who also collects vinyl who assisted me in figuring it out and purchasing the required pieces. I hope this information is useful to those looking to purchase their first turntable system.

  3. After reading the reviews of many audiophiles on various Hifi/Vinyl message boards on the internet, I was pleasantly surprised by the sound quality. All sounds crystal clear (much better than I feared/expected), the setup is easy, and my (international) delivery arrived much earlier than expected. You can’t get any better for a beginner than this – it’s as close to plug and play as you can get with a turntable!

    I just have one complaint or caveat. When I asked Audio Technica on their website if this supports 230V, they said it is sold with a 110V power supply requirement in the US and 220V in other countries. BUT I clearly see 110V-240V written on the adapter (which usually means the device can handle pretty much everything in that range). To be safe, I’m using a 220V to 110V step down converter, but I’d still like AT to clear this up!
