    Looking to get back into the Vinyl side of music..

    I used to own a nifty vinyl player as a kid. That's where my appreciation on the medium started and I kind of wished I had continued on to build a good collection. I own most of my music through digital purchase these days [just so darn convenient], but I always wanted to rekindle my vinyl passion. I went through several entry level record players [Boytone, Jensen; to name a few] and I was never really satisfied with the sound or features. These brands are in no way bad, but I found their integrated speaker system to be terrible and worst of all they never shut off [even though you might have nice speakers attached]. Save yourself the hassle and get this Audio-Technica player. It's a wonderful place to start if you are looking to get back into records again. There is some assembly involved, but it's as easy as looping a belt to a gear [30 seconds tops]. The design is solid and space saving for those that don't want a large player. I have mine placed in my office and it fits nicely with some Bose speakers atop a utility desk. Buttons are super straight forward: 33/45 rpm button for differing records [adapter also included] along with a start / stop buttons. Comes with a nice slipmat, but I opted fro an acrylic slipmat to minimize static and enhance low tones. The price is hard to mess with too; considering the quality product you get in return. Bottom line: if you're new to vinyl or looking to get back into it...this is your player. If you are already a vinyl collector and a bit more seasoned at this, you may want the higher end models this wonderful brand has to offer. Thank you and enjoy the music!!

    Very Disappointing - Even for a starter

    Last week my wife and I purchased the Sony model PSLX300USB, we really enjoy it's sound and ease of use. We are both new to collecting records and based on many reviews this was a good starter. This week, we wanted to get another one for the back room that also has speakers to the porch so after many recommendations we decided to try the Audio Technica since a lot professionals use them, so we were told. Extremely disappointing, first the mat is a felt pad after playing a collectors album in white vinyl when we went to flip it, the entire back side of the record was cover in black felt pieces. We didn't notice this on the first record we played since it was black, but after this discovery we immediately cleaned both. Second, the sound quality, the first record was okay, even on the same sound system in the other room as the Sony. So we tried the previously discussed white album and not as crisp as well or make you feel the music like the Sony did. The fact my daughter walked in and asked "did something happen to the record player, it sounds a little off" made me right then and there want to return it. I understand sound is subjective but all 3 of us didn't care for the sound. Finally, this may be normal but I'm still new to using records again, as we sat and watched the record spin you could see the arm going up and down like shocks on a car absorbing imperfections in the road. I did not see this on the sony, nice and level the entire record, I can understand if the record was a little warped but we played them on both one after the other just to see if this was normal. I think it had something to do with the felt pad. So last night I repacked the box and went online to do an in-store pick-up of the Sony PSLX300USB. Aside from these issues the automatic arm performed as expected and I did like that Audio Technica included 2 adapters which the Sony does not.

    Nice Entry Level Turntable

    Numerous positive online reviews led me to the Audio-Technica LP 60 turntable. This product is good for someone whose looking for a fairly inexpensive turntable that offers better quality than other record players in the same price range. Being fully automatic makes it easy to operate. It's built in pre amp means no need for an external one. All you'll need is this turntable, speakers, and a source that has a phono, line, aux, even CD input and you're on your way to enjoying the vinyl experience. Everything one needs is in the box. There is some minor assembly required in terms of attaching the belt to the pulley and placing the platter. The sound quality is really dependent on your source. Mine is connected to a home theater reciever through the CD input and it sounds fine to me. So if one is looking for a really sweet, reasonable priced turntable, give the Audio-Technica LP 60 a spin.

    Rejuvenating my old LPs to Mp3s

    Speaker hookup was easy, PC hookup was easy, the price was right and the sound is good (as long as you keep your records clean)! I have a lot of LPs from back when they were the main method of music delivery. They have been in storage for about 20 years and then I found this turntable and I'm listening to them again - in the den and on my iPod. I can even pick up new music on LP - it's been awhile since I did that. A few quick and simple connections and this turn table was tied into my media-PC and the rediscovery process was underway. After 1 album, I'd found the software settings (Audacity# that worked best for me. You really have to listen to music on LP to understand why analog really is better than digital. Granted, if the album you are listening to was recorded digitally, it may not be much of any difference from the CD, but if you have older analog recordings #or newer) then this is well worth the modest investment.

    Perfect turntable for just spinning records

    I wanted a basic turntable to listen to my vinyl collection. It doesn't have bluetooth or a remote control or built in speakers...so it's perfect!!! The packaging was great and protected all of the components well during shipping. Set up was straightforward and simple, except I had to get a RCA coupler because the audio cables coming out of the unit are way too short unless you're going to sit your turntable directly on top of your tuner. The audio cables are also hard wired to the turntable, which I'm not a big fan of. I prefer plugging in my own quality RCA cables. You can start and stop records with the touch of a button and the arm lifts and moves automatically. When I first used the turntable the sound was very low and sound quality was poor...then I discovered the "Phono / Line" switch on the back of the case and it nearly blew me out of the room. It seems to be a quality unit especially considering the low cost. Sound is fantastic and needles can be easily replaced.

    Vinyl Digitizing Success!

    I absolutely LOVE this new turntable I got at #BestBuy last night. The sound quality is like night and day from the "cute" Crosley one I had that had built in USB/SD card recording. Well, that convenience quickly evaporated when the files were "tinny" 128 kbps mp3s with very little bass and a brittle (ear-pain) high-end. Yuck. I spent hours massaging the files in Cubase with $100's worth of software to breathe life and warmth back into them. Pfffft. Yes, it stinks to scrap all that work, but it's worth it. Quality is what I'm after, not quick-fix. This Audio Technica LP60 hooked up to my Focusrite with it's British preamps, means I can record the turntable as if it were a stereo instrument. I'm using 48KHz 24bit .WAV uncompressed to capture my albums and with the time I'm saving on EQ and RXing the signals, I can finally get my vinyl converted to a format I can comfortably enjoy on my devices!

    Not so good if you care about audio quality

    Let me start off by saying I was looking for a cheap turntable to play records and that's what I received. I then realized that is not what I wanted from a turntable and ended up spending much more for a quality turntable. The automatic features are nice, but I compromised those in the end for quality. There was enough wow and flutter in the middle of the record that even my wife noticed right away (enjoys quality audio, but not as much as I do). The sound was not warm like analog audio should be (could be from the preamp or cartridge, probably both). If you have a set of powered bookshelves and are not overly picky about sound quality, it should suffice. Unfortunately I was unable to keep this unit and it was returned. If you are purchasing this unit for the audio quality vinyl is known for and are adding it to a nice amp/speakers, then do yourself a favor and listen to higher quality units.

    A Next Gen Turntable

    This is a good basic turntable for a good price without a lot of bells and whistles--just 4 buttons and a lever control all the action. It can be hooked up in the traditional way--to an amp--OR hooked up to powered speakers OR hooked up to anything that has a 3.5mm stereo input; Audio Technica supplies ALL necessary connecting cords so you don't have to buy them separately. You couldn't do this with the previous generation of turntables--it's truly a multipurpose piece of audio equipment. The mechanical action is smooth and positive. Instructions are clear and provide all necessary cautions for a 5-minute setup; be sure to READ FIRST to avoid an obvious but avoidable mistake.
