Audio Technica At-lp60 Fully Automatic Stereo Turntable System, Silver (AT-LP60 SILVER) 883

Review for technica at lp60 automatic stereo turntable

Price was $99.00. I bought two of these the same day, one silver, one red. Both turntables turned too fast out of the box. You can easily adjust the speed of the turntable by accessing the speed control screws which are located on the underside of the turntable. There's one for 33 1/3, one for 45. Use a sewing-machine sized regular head screwdriver. The screws are recessed in a hole, so be patient and make sure your screwdriver has engaged the screwhead before proceeding. Turn left to slow down, right to speed up. You do not need to turn the screw much to make the adjustment. Use an lp for which you know the pitch (like maybe the first track is in f major) and have a keyboard handy. Play the note on the keyboard, then listen to the lp. If it needs to slow down, take the lp off the table, lift the table up from the front to access the adjustment hole and have at it. You may need to repeat this process a couple of times to hone in and really match the pitch closely. . Remember, turn left to slow down, right to speed up. Should take no more than 5 minutes. Good luck. . Now, about the sound reproduction you'll get from this turntable: this is basically a good entry-level device. The signal sounds pretty good playing through my son's system which is pretty basic. Pop music is ok. However, listening to classical lps through my higher-end system, the shortcomings are quite audible. A lack of clarity and a rolled-off high end. Granted, i haven't really listened to lps for decades. I've been listening to cds, which sound superior in classical music - much more life-like. I can't really say whether it's my cd listening, the turntable or my expectations not being met, but i would say that this isn't the turntable you want if your system is worth over $2, 000 - 4, 000. You'll probably want to look at something a little more high-end. . On edit (6/22/16): i purchased a stylus update for this turntable through a company called lp gear. Included for $40 is an elliptical stylus that perfectly fits the cartridge head (which cannot be changed) and a belt that is advertised as being of higher grade than that included from the factory. It took but a few minutes to switch both the belt and the stylus, and i must say that the change is quite noticeable and for the better. The turntable now sounds like a $150-200 turntable, rather than an entry-level machine. I can't speak to the performance of the belt as the factory belt was brand new. But, it was an easy swap, so i made it, saving the factory-included belt and stylus for the future. This is an inexpensive upgrade that i highly recommend.

Preface

Edit 1/12/17:changed review a bit. . So i recently looked for a new turntable. My last one was discontinued and the needle (couldn't find a new one) was worn causing it to skip around on a new vinyl i got (more on that later) . I looked around and saw this one was on a bunch of lists for top turntables. I eventually got this record player a few days after i ordered and i'm going to break down the review into a few sections so bear with me (i'm also probably going to be the most detailed review here but who knows). . Box opening:. I got the box and opened it. There was a lot of brown paper keeping the player from being damaged. It came in a box the width of my bed! all for a small box! the packaging from the online store facility was perfect! . . Unboxing:. Now unboxing this player is like playing the atari game breakout. You have to open the plastic wrap, open the box, take the styrofoam off both ends of the player, etc. Also unboxing the platter, dust cover and the felt mat was a step to do also. . Setup:. So. This step was kinda weird. The player requires you to put the platter on and set up the belt. Not a big deal. I thought it was fun! like playing with legos like a kid (if only there was a lego record player lol) i also hooked up a speaker and turned on the pre amp from the line switch. . Operation:. So remember i said i had a new vinyl that skipped on my old player? no problem here! i immediately placed my copy of metallica's hardwired (by the way, standard and deluxe versions are both 180g vinyl and they are heavy! ) and let the record player automatically queue the first song. I was scared that i damaged the vinyl from trying to get it playing on my old player. When the needle went in the first groove, i was nervous. But everything was fine after the song played. And the pre amp blew my mind! hardwired sounded awesome! i eventually played some older vinyls of my collection including guns n' roses' appetite for destruction. The opening riff of sweet child o' mine sounded great! . . Opinion:. For $130, this was amazingly good! it played all my vinyl with no problems. Everything is perfect with the player and i hope it continues to stay that way. My old player was good but eventually started to die down. And the player before my last one. Let's not mention their name *ahem crosley* but audio technica has won me over with their at-lp60! . . Notes:. Now some reviews here were 3 start or lower. People have their opinions and sometimes a unit can be defective. But this player was great and i did lots of research on it before ordering. If you want a record player and do not have money for the better high end ones, get this player. It is a great player with good sound whether you listen to rock or metal bands like metallica and gn'r (that pairing didn't go so well back in 1992 lol) maybe you listen to artists from now, or that crate of vinyls in your parents or grandparents basements. This player was worth the money, and i hope you think the same.

Audio Technica AT-LP60 Fully Automatic Stereo Turntable System, Silver Review (AT-LP60 SILVER)

This is a very good turntable, for the money. It sounds great (with the right stylus), and operates flawlessly. There are no balance, or tracking, adjustments on the tone-arm, but that has not been an issue at all, so far. Out of the box the turntable sounds good, but i highly recommend replacing the stock stylus with the audio technica atn3600l stylus. This replacement stylus is much thinner than the stock one, and really brings out the mids, and highs, in music. Bass sounds great also. The original stylus can sound kind of muddy at times. Trust me, you will notice a huge difference. Having a built-in (switchable) pre-amp is also nice. It allows you to connect the turntable to a receiver that does not have a dedicated phono input. You can also connect the turntable to a computer (line-in), amplified speakers, or a stand alone amplifier. The turntable already comes with rca female (stereo) to 3. 5mm male, and female adapters, in the box. The turntable outputs are non-removable rca male (stereo). And not very long. Since the turntable has a built in preamp, i have tried it with several lengths of good quality rca extension cables, from 1 foot, up up to 25 feet, and have noticed no degradation in sound quality, or any annoying humming. This is a real plus. You would not want to do this if connecting a long cable up to the standard phono input, as this could cause all kinds of noise, and sound quality issues, unless you use the line-out, and install a phono preamp very close to the turntable, and then connect the long rca extension cables to the aux/line in of a regular amp/receiver. I have had no problems with this turntable in any configuration. The turntable also comes with an adapter to play 7" 45rpm records. The automatic features are great, as the turntable will automatically return the tone-arm, and shut off when the record is finished playing. The cueing feature is nice also. I replaced an old pioneer turntable (that finally died) with this one, and cannot tell any sound difference, as they both sound great. I have been listening to records, since the 70's, and still enjoy it today, even with all the other modern forms of digital music available. I would highly recommend this turntable to anyone looking to get into vinyl, or replace an aging, existing turntable. You cannot go wrong, for the money. -F. Nees

Over the past year, i've become quite a music buff. I've collected a mass of cds and digital files, ranging from pop music to indie metal. I wouldn't call myself a connoisseur or a fanatic, but i definitely care a lot about my music. Turntables have always seemed cool to me, and the idea of owning some classic lps really got me excited. So, i pulled the trigger and bought this cool little turntable. Overall? it's pretty great. . Setting the table up was easy. You have to put it together, but it's very straightforward and the manual explains the instructions well. You essentially need to get the belt around the platter so it spins your records. Once you've done that, you're all set. There's a guard on the stylus out of the box, which is worth keeping, because it will protect the delicate needle from being damaged if you accidentally hit the stylus off its resting position. There's also a neat dustcover that goes over the platter. It has the audio technica logo on it and i really like the way the player looks when there isn't a record sitting on it. There's also a lid you can pop down even when a record is playing, something to further prevent dust from getting on the machine or your vinyls. . When it comes to actually playing a record, it's easy as well. There's a dial to select the size of the vinyl and a button to determine what speed you're playing at. If the button is pressed in, you're spinning at 45 rpm. If it's out, you're at 33 rpm. To start playing a record, you can hit the start button and the needle will automatically make its way to the record based on your settings. Then the needle will drop on the starting groove and start playing! simple as that. To bring the needle back to its resting position, you can hit stop or wait for the side of the record to reach its conclusion. Either of those things will work. If you don't like the automatic function on the turntable, there's also a button to lift the stylus that will raise and lower the needle onto the record. You can use this to manually start playing a record or even play a specific song based on the grooves. It might not satisfy a dj or opinionated hipster who only wants a manual turntable, but for someone like me who has shaky hands, it's more than ideal. . I do have one issue with the at-lp60 that may irk you if you're a perfectionist like me. Right out of the box, the 33 rpm setting spins too quickly. I do not own any 45s, so i can't judge the speed of that setting. However, as a huge fan of purple rain by prince, and i couldn't help but notice that his voice sounded slightly higher-pitched during the beginning of let's go crazy. I played an mp3 of the song side by side with the record player, and after a short while, the player had the lead on the mp3. I tried this with a couple other records and they played too quickly too. Luckily, there is a way to fix this, but it's a colossal pain in the bum. There are two screws on the bottom of the turntable: one labeled 33 and one labeled 44. The screws are deep in the bottom of the machine and there's a rubber guard blocking both of them, making it difficult to see the actual screw. After turning the machine off and securing the stylus arm with a twist tie, you can poke a small screwdriver past the guard just fine. You won't be able to see if you have the screwdriver seated right, but you can feel for the ridges of the head of the screw. Once it feels like the screwdriver is seated properly, you can turn left to lower the speed or turn right to speed it up. Be very gentle with your turns and only turn the screw a smidge. If you turn too much, your lps will either sound like a chipmunks record or a satanic ritual on vinyl. Using the method i described earlier, playing an lp and then listening to an mp3 counterpart simultaneously, is a good way to figure out if the player is running too fast or too slow. Once you've tweaked it to your liking, congratulations, you have a fantastic $99 turntable that will last you for quite some time. . Overall, i'm pleased with my purchase. I really feel like i got my money's worth with it. It took a bit of work to get the turntable operating properly, but for $99, this little machine is a steal. I'd recommend it to people who are looking to get into vinyl, but don't want to spend very much. However, be prepared to get your hands a bit dirty if you want the platter to spin at the correct speed.

Audio Technica At-lp60 Fully Automatic Stereo Turntable System, Silver (Sound And Recording Equipment) Aud Atlp60
Click to see NoticeAudio Technica At-lp60 Fully Automatic Stereo Turntable System, Silver (AT-LP60 SILVER)"I'm very happy with this product. Keep in mind that this is a very basic turntable. One problem that i seem to have noticed repeatedly through the reviews before purchasing this product was that it sometimes plays records too fast. My turntable turned out to be one of those, but it really is no big deal. It's a simple fix. Underneath the turntable are two small holes, labeled 33 and 45 respectively. For example, if your 33 rpm records are being played too fast, insert a flat head screwdriver into the 33 rpm hole and rotate it counter-clockwise. Clockwise if its playing too slow. There are multiple ways to check how fast the table is spinning. I used an app on my phone but theses more accurate ways to do it out there. Audiotechnica should have this information more available to it's consumers. I had to delve through the internet to find it. Again, this is an entry level product. I purchased this knowing that there might be some flaws but it exceeded my expectations."

ART Pro Audio DJPRE II Phono Turntable Preamplifier

The art dj pre ii should be in every dj's gig box! vinyl records have drawbacks. Bass compensation can be needed during playback. Records produce a certain amount of hiss, and magnetic cartridges produce a weak signal. A separate riaa preamp is necessary when you are connecting a turntable to a mixer that does not have one built in. The art dj pre ii features an riaa-type phono preamp circuit with full patching facilities for connecting a phono turntable and mixer. The dj pre ii (formerly named the phono micropre ) acts as an interface between your turntable and your audio recording / playback system. The analog input capacitance can be switched between 100pf and 200pf to optimize your phono cartridge response. A switchable low cut filter removes turntable rumble while leaving the audio pristine. The front gain trim control and signal/clip led allow you to optimize the preamp's gain for a wide range of input sources. The built-in low noise phono preamp circuitry is highly accurate and precisely conforms to the riaa standard. The line output jacks are low impedance and can be used with any sound card. Housed in an all aluminum black anodized case, the dj pre ii can be powered by a wide variety of external supplies. If you need to amplify and eq your vinyl records to interface with your audio workstation, sound card, home stereo system or main monitor system, the dj pre ii gives you flawless audio reproduction in a rugged and reliable package.

Sigh No More LP

Mumford & sons, west london indie rock quartet, have created a gutsy, old-time sound that marries the magic of crosby, stills & nash with the might of kings of leon and the harmonies of fleet foxes. Sigh no more was recorded at eastcoast studios, where arctic monkeys, brian eno, tindersticks and laura marling have honored their sound. The band teamed with producer markus dravs who has worked with such superstar acts as arcade fire, bjork and peter gabriel. Sigh no more was recently released in the uk to critical accolades. The album debut in the uk itunes top 10 recently and is being lauded by tastemaker publications. The first single, little lion man , is already being boasted as the hottest record in the world by radio 1's zane lowe, and the band has been long listed for the bbc sounds of 2008 pool, which features the most promising new music talent. Formed in 2007, that band's goal since day one has been to make music that matters. Before recording their debut, mumford & sons self produced three ep's and toured the uk extensively, bringing their rootsy rock across the country. The band recently wrapped a handful of well-received performances during the annual cmj music marathon in new york, which left time out ny to comment, the brit combo has a spine-tingling way to harmony.

Collector Protector Vinyl Record Spray Cleaner Anti Static Carbon Fiber Record Brush. The Perfect Combination To Keep Your Records Sounding Great

Collector protector cleaning kit can help you keep your cherished lps in premium condition. This kit consists of a bottle of cleaning solution as well as a hand-held carbon fiber brush. First thing to know about cleaning vinyl records is that playing a dirty record will damage the vinyl and negatively affect the sound quality. Maintaining clean records will preserve not only the life of your lps but also the life of your record player. Here's a few tips for cleaning: if your record is visibly dusty, do not contaminate your brush by dry dusting. You will harm both brush and record. Wet clean your record first. To use your carbon fiber brush, spin record on turntable and lightly mist brush with spray cleaner. Place brush at a 90 degree angle on the record. With light pressure on the brush, allow record to rotate a few times and then slowly slide brush towards you. Lift brush straight up. Rotate brush bristles back and forth against underside of handle to clear the dust from the fibers. Dry dusting your records with a carbon fiber brush before and after play is the best way to keep your records clean and sounding great. Do not touch/pull on bristles of carbon fiber brush. Incorrect use may cause bristles to shed. Always remove surface debris and dust before any deep clean. New records are not necessarily clean records. Clean your records before the first play. Less friction is better. Be gentle with your albums. A turntable or stylus in bad shape will damage your record. Keep your stylus clean in between records by using a stylus brush. Always brush cartridge back to front, never side to side or front to back.

I am by no means an audiophile but i also didn't want cheapo junk speakers and i also wouldn't benefit from anything more expensive. I did alot of research and had a thread going on overclock dotnet. I gave myself a budget of $100 as i wanted better quality sound then cheap pc speakers and felt anything more than $100 for me and i wouldn't be able to tell the difference anyway. . Originally i was looking at getting these mackie cr3's:. Mackie cr3, 3" creative reference multimedia monitors. . They have very good reviews, arent super large and appear to be high quality. While a minor thing, and not even close to the reason i chose the 1280t's, but i wasn't a fan of the green theme of the cr'3. My system is read and black themed, desk is dark brown wood grain, and most else is black. . Someone in the forums i mentioned brought up these edifier 1280t's and i had never heard of them before. They also had relatively few reviews here. The reviews they did have though were good, specifically from the other 2 customers who mention the cr3's as well. Not being real into audio i figured if people vouch for the sound quality of both then i should consider all other factors. . The 1280t's are larger (4" vs 3") which depending on the space you have could be a plus or minus. For me i had enough room and figured if i could get bigger speakers for the same price i should consider it. Also the 1280t's have the controls on the side which i like, a elegant aesthetic to them that i think would fit in with more than the green of the cr3's, and they include a simple but useful remote. The 1280t's also have aux rca which i liked. The cr3's do have the ability to switch right/left however. I also like the front cover of the 1280t's. . I just got the 1280t's setup and the quality was noticeable as i was taking them out of the box. They have that weight all quality electronics have to them. Everything was packed reasonably well and 0 damage to any items in the box. Got them hooked up in a minute or 2 to my pc and was blown away at the sound quality, even at lower volumes. One of my problems prior with a cheap bullet speaker was that dialog was hard to hear. Not with these the vocals/dialog do not get muddled by the bass or mids. . Not being an audiophile the best i can do to describe the sound is to say its much more lifelike than any other speakers i have in my house or have heard when i'm out shopping. It sounds natural, not like i am listening to speakers. I am also hearing instruments and sounds that i did not before in various songs/media. I would 100% recommend these to anyone with the same budget and needs as me. . It was also recommended to me that i get a better cable than what comes with the speakers. This is the cable i got and while generally the cable doesnt matter to me the quality of this cable also impressed me. . Mediabridge 3. 5mm male to 2-male rca adapter (12 feet) - step down design - (part mpc-35-2xrca-12 ). . I dont think you can go wrong with these. For what its worth im sure the cr3's are not bad either, they may even be better in some ways, but i am very satisfied with the 1280t's.

A shame these aren't more popular in the us. These are amazing speakers and it was either these 4" active speakers vs the mackie cr3 3" active speakers at a similar price point. Not to mention that nasty green scheme on the mackie's is just horrendous. The wood finish and build quality of these edifier's are superb. . The sound coming from these 2. 0 bookshelf speakers are great for what it is. Mids and treble are clear and linear, really shining in acoustical music. The bass is there but obviously these don't have the capabilities of a subwoofer so you're missing the wub wub and the low end. It has a bit of a hollow ring to the notes on bass heavy music thus i docked 1 star. . I recommend grabbing a separate subwoofer to complete the sound. Not necessary but highly recommended. Overall this product is a very solid all in one powered speaker solution for pc users. Build quality is there and audio is satisfactory for what it is. . Btw ended up replacing the included 3. 5mm to rca cable with a high quality mediabridge one and audio clarity improved significantly. -Notice from K. Dorothy, Florida

Yup, much like other reviews on here, i only have great things to say. I recieved mine today and these are the perfect speakers for someone looking to get into vinyl. I paired mine with the audio technica lp60, and they sound outstanding. Again, like many other reviews, i am no audiophile - just a regular music lover not looking to spend too much on a rig. Best $100 i've spent in a while, though - and with the turn table costing about the same its a no brainer. Believe the hype! love that i can leave the auxiliary cord out too if i ever want to throw on pandora or whatever - always good to have the option. . My suggetion is to make the purchase if you're on the fence

- S. WellsI have a small apartment so i don't need a giant sound system. These guys have a nice sound (both treble and bass) and look great. . I'm pretty diligent about turning them off entirely when i'm done with them, so i don't know how they act when you leave them on for days+ at a time. . I'm very happy with my purchase and am considering getting a second pair.

I am highly satisfied with these speakers. Sounds come out crisp and clean even at the highest volume level (which easily fills up my entire hallway) without a single bit of distortion. That is extremely rare to find in computer speakers $100. They also look dope. Simple, but solid with the slick wood design and metal screen. They fit perfectly on my desk and have come in handy when i have people over, watch a movie, mix music, or just listen to my bangin' beats. After extensive research and fervent note-taking on my part, i decided to buy these speakers over the bose companion 2 series iii, yamaha nx-50, gigaworks t40, and mackie cr3. In retrospect: couldn't be happier with my choice! . . P. S. If you're more interested in details, here they are:. 1. There are treble, bass, and master volume knobs on the side of the right speaker with notches at 0db to let you know where the default level is. Power switch is on the back of that speaker. 2. Comes with all the cords you need to play on a computer, mobile device, or tv with rca inputs. This includes a speaker connecting cable, dual to dual rca cable, and 3. 5 mm to dual rca audio connecting cable. 3. 13mm silk dome tweeter for clear treble sound. 4 inch bass unit for solid bass sound. 4. 146 mm (w) x 234 mm (h) x 196 mm (d). About 5 kg. 5. Set up took about 10 minutes and was problem-free.

The F.A.Q. for Audio Technica At-lp60 Fully Automatic Stereo Turntable System, Silver (AT-LP60 SILVER)

Here's the deal folks. Getting into vinyl is an expensive hobby. Don't let anybody tell you differently. So if you are looking to start collecting records i highly recommend that you start here. As far as best "bang for your buck" this unit is an atomic bomb! worth every cent. I started with this table 2 years ago to get back into vinyl. Ultimately, i upgraded to a fully manual table with a bellari tube amp and akg 702 headphones. Does my new setup sound better. You betcha! but it also cost over $1000. Does it sound 10 times better than this. No way! maybe twice as good, but not 10 times. Also, fully manual turntables are merciless. You will drop the needle hard and will screw it up. ( i am on my 3rd needle and second cartridge in just 1 year). At $50 per needle it is an expensive lesson. If you forget that you are listening to a record and go outside to talk to a neighbor only to return several hours later to find the needle hitting the end of the record over and over, you most likely will be buying a new needle soon. This table however is fully automatic. So you don't have to stress. So get this to start. Maybe some powered speakers (you can get a good pair like the creative mackies for 100 bucks) and start record shopping. It is a wonderful rainy day hobby and for me it brings back memories of growing up. As far as used records go, you get what you pay for. If you buy 3 and 5 dollar used records you might be disappointed. ( at least i was)

A number of questions have been asked here.

Q&A

(0) Question: Power


(1) Question: Won't the needle scratch my cds? or is there a special adapter you need to play cd / dvd?


(2) Question: Do i have to hook this up to speakers? will it play on its own


(3) Question: What exactly do i need for bookshelf speakers to work? i bought these the other day insignia-5-1/4" 2-way bookshelf speakers (pair), will they work?


(4) Question: My husband just received this turntable as a christmas gift. any recommendations for a receiver that is compatible? our old receiver is broken.


(5) Question: Do you have to have an amplifier to use speakers for this? i'm a first time buyer and didn't realize all that was needed. thanks!


(6) Question: Does this have built in speakers or do i need to buy some? if so, what kind do you recommend? simply buying to play records.


(7) Question: Will i be able to transfer music to my itunes library?


(8) Question: Can i load my albums into itunes?


(9) Question: Looking to use in europe. i know i can buy a voltage converter to solve the 220/110v issue, but was concerned about hz? is there a 50/60hz switch?



(note) Question: where/how to get Audio Technica (manufacturer's brand) accessories & similiar Audio Technica's products

Just got one of these shipped all the way to austria, was worried for a couple of days that the voltage and cycle frequency difference would be a problem, but it's absolutely not so. In the meantime i exchanged emails with audio technica's service center and support, and got a prompt reply that it's a dc controlled unit, meaning that if it's not a 120v current where you live, a simple voltage converter is sufficient. . The sound just blew me away, i put the unit straight through a test of fire by running it into a professional audio interface with direct monitoring (no ad/da conversion), and from that to a pair of active genelec studio monitors. To top it all, i fed it "the headhunters" by herbie hancock. All i can say is wow. Super clean, full sound from the preamp in the unit, very good signal to noise ratio (barely audible hissing and crackling between tracks, not really perceivable when there's any kind of music going on). Let's see if it runs this well over time, so far i'm very impressed. Five stars. . Btw, if you check out the negative comments, some are talking about "how short the rca cables are", and some are talking about the unit's "low volume". That's just audio ignorance running high around here. It comes with a pair of cables with which you can make an extension in two seconds, and the "low-volume" is because it comes with the pre-amp turned off. All you need to do to solve this "problem" is use your fingers to flip a switch in the back of the unit to "line" instead of phono. And if you complain that "assembling" the unit is difficult (putting three pieces together before running it), you're just beyond hope.

Best audio technica at-lp60 fully automatic stereo turntable system, silver (at-lp60 silver) in review

This has recently gone up in price, even apart from the gold box special that greeted me. In a way, i wish i'd seen the higher price, which would have discouraged me from ordering so quickly. I remember when, in the '70s, it cost more to replace a shure v-15 type ii cartridge than to purchase this turntable, which comes complete with cartridge, stylus, and 4 different connecting cables to cover just about all situations, even those for customers without a receiver/amplifier. It wasn't long before, in the '80s, the elliptical stylus itself went for over a hundred, eventually taken off the market by shure due to the scarcity of its rare and costly constituent. . The point: for 60 to 90 bucks, you should not expect anything close to a genuine audiophile turntable-even though the machine includes auto tone arm lift, two instruction manuals, four well-made cables, cartridge and stylus. But the feature missing with this turntable, the one reason i wish i hadn't ordered it and had waited to purchase the next model up, is a counterweight for achieving precise tone arm balance as well as an anti-skating control for reducing pressure (and distortion) on the inside grooves of the vinyl lp, especially the tracks closest to the middle hole. . Nevertheless, given the absence of a counter-weighted tone arm and anti-skating control, this turntable does a highly competent job of tracking most recordings. In fact, it performs better than both of the ailing industry-standard, professional stanton turntables that were proving increasingly problematic at the station. Also, the tracking pressure that i measured is less than 2 and a half grams, light enough to prevent the stylus from eating up your vinyl (at least not until after 2-3 playings). . The unit comes with built-in preamp, so not only does it not require an amp with a phono jack, but it doesn't require any amp beyond the one in your computer if your primary consideration is converting vinyl to digital. A couple of things to be aware of: the lift on the tone arm is too small to be of use for manual placement. You'll need to be comfortable with the automatic lift mechanism or forget about picking up and dropping down the tone arm with any semblance of accuracy. Also, in back is an all-important lever that switches the unit from "phono" to "line" connection. If you're using the unit without an amp with phono jack (beginning in the '90s, cost-conscious manufacturers began leaving them off of receivers and amps, though with the comeback of vinyl we've seen the reappearance of phono jacks), be sure to set the switch to "line. " the same holds true if your connection involves use of any of the optional cables and connectors that are included with the turntable. . The turntable tracks quite nicely from what i've seen, and is worth the low cost. Still, before investing in a usb unit-without or without phono connectors-you may simply wish to save up for the best "conventional" turntable along with an amplifier or receiver that has a phono jack. That way you'll have a better chance of scoring some of the audiophile niceties mentioned above, and connection to your computer will be no problem-whether you have an 1/8" familiar audio jack or an adapter that will transform rca into usb cables. . The software included with the turntable is audacity-a respected freeware program that's capable of doing an excellent job but is not known for being the most user-friendly program. Other possibilities are cool edit (for pc users); spin doctor or sound studio (mac users). Once you've converted a couple of lps, it's a piece of cake-except for the potential of allowing the process to consume all of your time and life. (try to resist the temptation to make up your own cds, complete with jewel cases, printed front and back covers and spines, disc centers, booklets, photos, inserts, etc. Another not inconsiderable expense-in time as well as money. )

R. Guest, Suffolk says

The only thing that could be better is a vintage one in good shape. The problem with vintage is that how does one *really* know it is in good shape without taking it home? the best you can hope for is to discern that it actually works. If you don't have the time or money to gamble on vintage gear, go for this one. . I have 3 other turntables, against which to compare it:. . 1) audio-technica at-lp120-usb. (from here on, i will refer to this as the '120' and the at-lp60 as the '60) this is a great turntable. It looks better, feels better, but i can't say that i can tell the difference in sound it produces. Some of the things we pay extra for on that model are:. . A) quartz timing control. This is something of value. B) 78 rpm speed, if you want the option of being able to play back the pre-1950 records. This is something of value. C) manual pitch adjustment. I'm told some bad recordings had the speed off, so this is a way to manually correct it. I've got a couple hundred records, and have not yet found one that had the speed obviously off, so i can't see any value in this. D) reverse direction. I can't see any value in this either. Some records have hidden messages if you play them backwards. Seems like something that might give a little thrill to hear it once or twice, but to pay extra for this ability? nah, just go listen to those albums on youtube to get your thrill. E) electronic controls. These will probably hold up better many years down the road than the mechanical controls of the 60. No moving parts fewer failure points. F) counterbalanced tonearm. In theory, this is better, as we can adjust the stylus to ride heavily enough in the grooves to provide good sound, but not so heavy as to cause undue wear to the records. I've read elsewhere where someone measured the weight at the stylus and found this one to be 3 g. When i got the weight adjusted properly on my 120, it was 2. 5 g. Not a notable difference, in the end. G) s-shaped tonearm. They say this is better, but i'll be darned if i can hear the difference. H) interchangeable headshell and cartridge. They say a change of cartridge makes a big difference in sound. Some people will spend hundreds of dollars on high-end cartridges to tailor the sound just to their liking. That seems silly to me. Why not just adjust the tone controls on one's amplifier? or get a proper eq component. Anyway, i can admit there could be some value in this. I) usb out option. The 60 is available with this too, for an extra $20. It works great with the free audacity software. I've ripped several lps to . Wav and . Mp3. It's worth paying extra for this feature, if only to make the records portable. But you don't need to upgrade to the 120 to get it. J) much heavier. The 120 has a big steel plate inside. I'm not sure what is up with this obsession for vibration dampening. There's no discernable difference in sound as a result of all this damping. Any difference heard would be mostly down to the cartridge. K) led strobe, to confirm at a glance that the rpm is correct. . More comparison between the 60 and 120 later. . 2) ion vinyl transport turntable. This uses the same mechanism as the ever-popular crosley cruiser, but adds battery operation, which i love. With the battery operation option, it is totally portable, not just portable in theory. I bring this to me to the goodwill and other places for listening to used records. Gotta find out if those scratches are "skippers" before paying the full $1 and taking up room in my apartment for more junk. I bought this for sixty bucks at a local half price books store, which also sells records. I just love this turntable, but it is not at all in the same league as this at-lp60. It has a ceramic cartridge instead of magnetic. Sound quality is pretty terrible in this class of turntable. If you're listening to a crosley with this mechanism, you're really missing out on how good vinyl can actually sound. . 3) fisher-price from 1978. I just gave this to my daughter for christmas. Check feebay, you'll see the one. Believe it or not, this has a much better speaker than the crosley/ion/jenson ones, and hence, better sound quality. But of course not comparable to this one, since it still has a ceramic cartridge. For techno-geeks, it has a really interesting drive mechanism though! (check youtube for 'how to repair a fisher-price turntable). . Now if you're looking at this turntable and you're on a budget, you're likely also looking at the 120 model, for over double the price. Having both of them now, i think this 60 is a much value. For the money, it gives just what one is after:. . 1) affordable. 2) hifi-grade sound. 3) not too big or heavy. 4) semi-automatic operation. This is the key difference. It makes it very nearly as convenient to play a record as a cd, yet we still have the option to do it manually. . The 60is about 40% smaller and 70% lighter than the 120, yet it functions just as well. It doesn't take up as much room, and it isn't a back-breaker to occasionally move around. . The one con i've found so far about this turntable is that it comes with a felt slip mat. (same as on the 120) these are a disaster when it comes to static. I opened my 60 yesterday for christmas, then re-packed it to bring home. I wasn't careful enough in repacking, and i crunched up the edge of the slip mat, so now the records don't spin flat. I pressed it underneath something heavy and flat last night, but it is still jacked up. I've got a couple cork ones inbound to replace these. That will address the static problem, as well as the crunched up problem. . In short, the 120 is probably a much heavier-duty turntable. It will run hour after hour, year after year and keep going. No belts to break, no mechanics to break, nothing to really go wrong, except maybe electronic. But considering it is basically a copy of the famous dj-favored technics 1200, which was a mature design to begin with, that's probably not even a concern. . The 60 is a lighter-duty unit. It might wear out after 10 years of constant, heavy use. But its a lot more affordable, a lot more convenient, and a lot lighter and smaller. (though it can still operate fully with the dust cover down)

I love this turntable. It's the first one i've ever had/used, and it does everything i want with no hassle. When i was researching which model to buy, i wanted to get one that has the usb function to convert the vinyl to mp3, and it works great. Instructions were very clear and easy to follow to install audacity. I've converted over 30 albums so far, with great results. I'm easily able to download the mp3 files and upload them to google play which i then sync to my phone. It is a bit time consuming, but once i did a few records, i got the hang of it. . As far as the initial set up of the turntable, it could not have been easier. The instructions clearly state how to attach the belt and ensure that it is working properly. Very easy to attach the plate and cover that the record sits on, as well as attach the needle to the tone arm. Set up with speakers was also easy, with provided audio cables. Some people complain that the cable is too short, but it's not a problem for me because i sit the turntable right next to my speaker. . I've never used a turntable before this one, so i was pleased with how easy the set up was and how easy it is to use. Once you have the rpm speed selected and the size of the record selected, all you have to do is put the record on the table and press start. The tone arm moves automatically, and lifts when the record is finished playing. . I'm certainly no audiophile, but i can't say enough good things about this turntable. If you're a beginner like me and looking for something to use to start a record collection, look no further. Audio-technica has made a great product here, and i'm sure i will get many years of use out of it.

I have waited a year before i wrote this review. This is a good purchase but there are better turntables you can buy. They just cost a heck of a lot more. For me, the best things about this unit are the lower price point, the automatic functions, and the ability to plug it into my old stereo system. The downsides are cannot replace cartridge to upgrade sound and overall flimsy construction. Everything is plastic except for the platter and tonearm. . Despite the lack of sturdy construction, the unit is durable as long as you don't abuse it, which means don't punch the plastic buttons for auto-play, auto-stop and raising/lowering the tonearm. A gentle touch is all that's needed. Replace the stylus every year or so and it keeps sounding pretty good. Invest in a decent pair of speakers and good amp and you'll enjoy what comes out. . I mostly play classic rock but sometimes i play classical or jazz and everything sounds fine. The bass is bass-y enough. It won't shake the walls but it does provide the necessary umph. I can play it at pretty high volume (when the wife isn't home) and it doesn't distort, which is key when zep, aerosmith, and black sabbath are on the platter. But even a mahler symphony sounds pretty good at high volume. . It doesn't come with anti-skate or a counter-weight for the tonearm but everything is factory set and it works fine. I hate to mess with those things anyway so it's a plus for me that it doesn't have them as features.

Here's the deal folks. Getting into vinyl is an expensive hobby. Don't let anybody tell you differently. So if you are looking to start collecting records i highly recommend that you start here. As far as best "bang for your buck" this unit is an atomic bomb! worth every cent. I started with this table 2 years ago to get back into vinyl. Ultimately, i upgraded to a fully manual table with a bellari tube amp and akg 702 headphones. Does my new setup sound better. You betcha! but it also cost over $1000. Does it sound 10 times better than this. No way! maybe twice as good, but not 10 times. Also, fully manual turntables are merciless. You will drop the needle hard and will screw it up. ( i am on my 3rd needle and second cartridge in just 1 year). At $50 per needle it is an expensive lesson. If you forget that you are listening to a record and go outside to talk to a neighbor only to return several hours later to find the needle hitting the end of the record over and over, you most likely will be buying a new needle soon. This table however is fully automatic. So you don't have to stress. So get this to start. Maybe some powered speakers (you can get a good pair like the creative mackies for 100 bucks) and start record shopping. It is a wonderful rainy day hobby and for me it brings back memories of growing up. As far as used records go, you get what you pay for. If you buy 3 and 5 dollar used records you might be disappointed. ( at least i was)

Pros:. I've owned this turntable for a year and 3 months at the time of this writing. It sounds very good and the price can't be beat. I like the fully-automatic operation and enjoy watching it move around like a jukebox. It's a good little workhorse that i've been using almost daily since buying it. . Cons:. It took me over a year to discover that this does not automatically adjust speed, like a quartz-locked turntable. I wrongly assumed this because it's "fully automatic" and there's no speed dials. Then, about a month ago, i started noticing my lps sounded fast. After some research, i found out that there were speed controls. They're only screw-type adjustments on the bottom and they look like regular screw holes. But wait. How am i supposed to adjust the speed with the platter upright and spinning and be able to use a screwdriver on the bottom of the turntable? good question. The answer is it's a royal pain in the *! i first had to buy a strobe card, since the turntable doesn't have a built-in strobe pattern, and use a work light with a true incandescent bulb (needed for the strobe pattern). I had to sit with the turntable balanced on the corner of my entertainment center with a record spinning and carefully adjust the speed with a screwdriver. And the speed adjustment is a finicky thing. You can't just turn it and expect it to change. No, you have to turn it just perfectly for it to take. How this works physically is beyond me. I also had a problem with the speed because if you push in too hard with the screwdriver, the little plastic speed adjustment screw pushes up into the turntable, speeding it way up. It's hard not to because of how you're balancing the turntable on the corner of a table and trying to keep it level. It probably took me a half hour of fiddling to finally get the speed perfect. And i didn't even need to mess with the 45 speed because it was okay. So, i'm changing my 5 star review to 4 stars for what i think is a terrible flaw in an otherwise great turntable. . The other con of this review isn't a big complaint. The built-in phono-stage isn't good. This should be expected of any turntable with line-out. It gives everything a harsh sound, not warm at all. There's a switch on the back that lets you bypass it and get normal mm phono-level out. I got the tcc tc-750lc, available here on online store. A lot of people say it's the best budget preamp you can get, and i agree. Tcc tc-750lc black professional moving magnet preamp

After getting out of the vinyl game a few years ago, i found myself wanting to grab my old records out of storage, and have a turntable that wasn't meant for djing. I looked through a ton of different options, pretty set on the pro-ject debut carbon, until i started seeing this pop up in google searches. At $100, what did i really have to lose? . . The fit and finish is far better than what i expected for how cheap this thing is. The drive motor is very sturdy, and the platter is very strong. The buttons are reassuringly firm, making it feel like a more expensive record player. The paint looks great in black, and even the slip-mat feels nicer than i remember a slip-mat feeling years ago. . Sound quality from the onboard preamp is far better than i expected. There seems to be a very even spread of response across frequencies, at least, through a few sets of headphones and a cheap tower speaker. Initially, i thought it was going to lean to far into "tin-can" or "moar bass" territory, but it sounds great. . The issues are, well, expected from something this cheap. The tone-arm feels very flimsy, but not so horrible that it might break if you looked at it wrong. The delay from hitting start/stop is a tad longer than i'd like, but it's a minor nuisance at best. The only thing that really nags at me the most is the fact that you have to stick with audio technica's cartridges, but since it sounds great already, i don't mind one bit. . Overall, super pleased with this turntable. I'll be picking another one up for my mother as a christmas present very soon.

I purchased this turntable a month ago and have used it nearly non-stop since. It's certainly not the best turntable in the world, but for all the features this fully-automatic turntable offers, there really isn't very much competition, especially when one considers what you would need to spend for a true upgrade. As it comes also comes with a phono preamp that sounds better than many cheap external preamps, using this turntable is as simple as plugging it into a set of powered speakers, dropping a record on, and pressing start. . Build quality is acceptable for the price: the chassis is lightweight plastic, the feet do not offer a lot of vibration damping, but the platter is made out of aluminum. . Playback is consistent and enjoyable for most music, but wow and flutter are definitely noticeable for passages that need consistent playback to sound correct. The guitar sustains on the beastie boys' "she's crafty" suffered a bit as the pitch did tend to wobble. . The entry-level non-removable moving magnet cartridge and replaceable atn3600l stylus, while using about 3. 5g tracking force, still produce great sound without damaging your vinyl collection. My simple ears detected no appreciable inner-groove distortion. . You will notice that there is no counterweight on the tonearm, nor is there an adjustable anti-skate feature- all of these are moot because the table has been designed for use with only one headshell/cartridge/stylus combo and tracking force and anti-skate have been set appropriately. . My only knock against this turntable was that the 33 1/3 rpm mode was actually set too fast out of the factory; about 3-5%. The songs were all playing back at a higher pitch and ending early. On the underside of the turntable, are two holes labeled "33" and "45", that provide access to two small trim pots on the motor to adjust the speed at their respective settings. The actual pots are deeply recessed and are further obscured with neoprene flaps (presumably to keep dust out? ), but with a long, small precision flat screwdriver and a lot of patience, you can dial in the speed perfectly. . If i didn't have to adjust the speed for proper 33 1/3 rpm playback, this would have easily been a 5-star review, but regardless, i'm completely satisfied with this turntable.

I finally bought this turntable after i received the 180-gram (brand new) version of "the bends" by radiohead and placed it on my crosley turntable. Skip-skip-skip-skip. I was so upset. I looked into a new turntable and found this amazing one for only $99. I was still nervous that this great record would skip on this turntable. As soon as it arrived, i placed the record onto it and it played beautifully. It blows the horrible crosley out of the water. It sounds infinitely better, plays infinitely better, and it looks infinitely better, too. Don't ever buy a crosley. Spend the extra few bucks and get this amazing turntable instead, you'll be blown away.

Wow - this turntable works great! and for a low price? double wow! easy to assemble, smaller footprint than most turntables, excellent sound and separation, and the auto play mechanism works perfectly. Looks great, too. I tested it out with a vintage command stereo-effect-intense lp, and the performance was through the roof. Unbelievable. I have owned audio technica cartridges and microphones before, all comparatively high end stuff. This little gem is every bit as good as pricier gear, is simple to use (i doubt if i could raise and position the tonearm as perfectly and as gently as the mechanism does), and reflects an excellent build quality. Highly recommended.

Purchased this as a christmas present for my boyfriend. He has used it so much since then we had to enter into negotiations on when he could play it without headphones because it was driving me bonkers. I don't know much about turntables, but paired with his high end speakers i have to admit the sound quality is great. He listens to a lot of old records, blues, rock, motown. Honestly, the blues and motown sound amazing. We've found rock doesn't seem as rich. Not sure if it's the speakers or not but they both sound less vibrant on cd to me. I don't even like blues and motown but find myself listening on occasion because it sounds so warm. Hard to describe. It seems to have turned into quite the hobby for him. Hunting down, cleaning, and playing old records as he reads the jackets. Anywho, the quality seems good. Unfortunately, i don't know much about turntables, but he absolutely loves it to the point of driving me crazy so only time will tell on how it hold up.

This has recently gone up in price, even apart from the gold box special that greeted me. In a way, i wish i'd seen the higher price, which would have discouraged me from ordering so quickly. I remember when, in the '70s, it cost more to replace a shure v-15 type ii cartridge than to purchase this turntable, which comes complete with cartridge, stylus, and 4 different connecting cables to cover just about all situations, even those for customers without a receiver/amplifier. It wasn't long before, in the '80s, the elliptical stylus itself went for over a hundred, eventually taken off the market by shure due to the scarcity of its rare and costly constituent. . The point: for 60 to 90 bucks, you should not expect anything close to a genuine audiophile turntable-even though the machine includes auto tone arm lift, two instruction manuals, four well-made cables, cartridge and stylus. But the feature missing with this turntable, the one reason i wish i hadn't ordered it and had waited to purchase the next model up, is a counterweight for achieving precise tone arm balance as well as an anti-skating control for reducing pressure (and distortion) on the inside grooves of the vinyl lp, especially the tracks closest to the middle hole. . Nevertheless, given the absence of a counter-weighted tone arm and anti-skating control, this turntable does a highly competent job of tracking most recordings. In fact, it performs better than both of the ailing industry-standard, professional stanton turntables that were proving increasingly problematic at the station. Also, the tracking pressure that i measured is less than 2 and a half grams, light enough to prevent the stylus from eating up your vinyl (at least not until after 2-3 playings). . The unit comes with built-in preamp, so not only does it not require an amp with a phono jack, but it doesn't require any amp beyond the one in your computer if your primary consideration is converting vinyl to digital. A couple of things to be aware of: the lift on the tone arm is too small to be of use for manual placement. You'll need to be comfortable with the automatic lift mechanism or forget about picking up and dropping down the tone arm with any semblance of accuracy. Also, in back is an all-important lever that switches the unit from "phono" to "line" connection. If you're using the unit without an amp with phono jack (beginning in the '90s, cost-conscious manufacturers began leaving them off of receivers and amps, though with the comeback of vinyl we've seen the reappearance of phono jacks), be sure to set the switch to "line. " the same holds true if your connection involves use of any of the optional cables and connectors that are included with the turntable. . The turntable tracks quite nicely from what i've seen, and is worth the low cost. Still, before investing in a usb unit-without or without phono connectors-you may simply wish to save up for the best "conventional" turntable along with an amplifier or receiver that has a phono jack. That way you'll have a better chance of scoring some of the audiophile niceties mentioned above, and connection to your computer will be no problem-whether you have an 1/8" familiar audio jack or an adapter that will transform rca into usb cables. . The software included with the turntable is audacity-a respected freeware program that's capable of doing an excellent job but is not known for being the most user-friendly program. Other possibilities are cool edit (for pc users); spin doctor or sound studio (mac users). Once you've converted a couple of lps, it's a piece of cake-except for the potential of allowing the process to consume all of your time and life. (try to resist the temptation to make up your own cds, complete with jewel cases, printed front and back covers and spines, disc centers, booklets, photos, inserts, etc. Another not inconsiderable expense-in time as well as money. )

Absolutely fantastic turntable for the price! hooked this up to a nice pair of powered speakers, and the audio quality is out of this world! dark side of the moon has never sounded better than it does now on new 180g vinyl with this setup. You simply will not find a better starter turntable for this price. Assembly was beyond simple, and i've had none of the speed issues that have been reported. I suspect that the vast majority of complaints come from people who don't read, and installed the belt badly. Speed issues are easily correctable via two screws on the bottom anyway. I am extremely impressed, and will be buying the lp120 next time! great job, audio technica!
