    Great turntable for the price!

    Posted .

    You wake up one day, and everyone around you has purchased a turntable. You tell yourself, they're a bunch of hipsters, and try to ignore them. It doesn't take long until you hear a record playing on a turntable and you're hooked! You get it! You hear what they're going on about. Now you have to buy a turntable too! Before you drop a ton of money, you need to know whether or not you're going to be able to really get into vinyl. This is what you buy!!! If you don't get into vinyl, no big deal! You haven't really lost much. If you do get into it, then you've got a pretty decent player without all of the new-fangled options, such as blue-tooth or USB connectivity. Nothing against those things, but I really think this is the best jumping off place. A clean, warm, truly analog sound, and it has a convenient built-in pre-amp so you can plug and play with almost any common receiver. I'm 100's of records deep now and I have my little, silver AT LP60 to thank for it. Audio Technica knows what they're doing and maybe my next TT will be another Audio Technica!

    After a long while w/o a TT, I couldn't take it anymore and purchased the Audio-Technica. Very nice and I'm glad I did. Plays beautifully, is compact, looks well made and does the job. I'm pleased so far. Just get it and play on to the wee hours of the morning if like me you have a stack of LPs and haven't enjoyed them for lack of a TT.

    Great starter turntable for a great price!

    I had originally purchased a “Victrola” briefcase style turntable. That was my first mistake. Took it back right away and purchased the LP60. It was only $50 more and is a much better turntable. I have it set up with some cheapie amazon computer speakers and a sub. It sounds great with this basic setup, I can imagine how great it would sound with more expensive speakers! I may buy a second player in the red color (if I can find one!)

    I am very happy with this record player, besides the fact that the RCA cable is very short, you will need to buy adapters and a longer RCA cables

    Good for the money

    I love this thing. I bought a very cheap record player before this one. ($50) was awful. Than came accross this one. Was blown away from the differnce in sound! Plays my old 70s records great! If you are looking to get into or back into listening to records get this one. Its cheap looks good and sounds great. But im still going to buy a different one in a year, will keep this one still!

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

    |
    Posted .

    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!!

    Nice Entry Level Turntable

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    A Next Gen Turntable

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Nice to hear my old vinyl records again

    |
    Posted .

    My old record collection has sat idle for decades for lack of a turntable. That was just unacceptable. Last year I tried to remedy this deficiency by purchasing one of those record players in a box with built is speakers you see at Bed, Bath and Beyond or Kohl's, etc. I was dissatisfied and retuned the product. The only reasonably priced alternative was a real turn table with a dust cover and amp. I stumbled on this compact unit that has a modest footprint. Audio-technica ships the unit with the arm secure and the turntable unattached to the belt to minimize damage to the unit. Accordingly, some "assembly" is required. After setting it up I was astonished by quality of the sound. This reasonably priced turntable exceeded my expectation and I'm not even using a high end tuner and speakers. I'm using an ancient Radio Shack powered set of desk-top speakers. As I write this review I'm listening to my 1977 soundtrack of "Saturday Night Fever". What a pleasure to hear this wonderful album the way it's suppose to be heard. The AT-LP60 is a reasonably priced turntable that brings back to life those old albums you haven't listened to in years. I highly recommend this entry level turntable.

    Overall good unit for the price

    I don't play records often but still needed a replacement for my old turntable and didn't want to spend an arm and a leg. It is stylish enough for me and it's workings are simple. I read on one review somewhere somebody didn't like the sound out of it. Somewhat depends on the needle quality but pretty much depends on the speakers. Like I said I have an old Pioneer system with 3 foot tall speaker cabinets with 2 speakers in each. Sounded great for me. Actually came two days earlier than promised.

    Excellent buy, works great, minor issues.

    Posted .

    First turntable arrived DOA. It would not run after being plugged in. Took it to my local Best Buy store and received very prompt, trouble-free replacement. (The unit was available only on line, so there was a week's delay in receiving the unit both times.) I have three minor criticisms (suggestions for improvement?) to offer. First, the power cord is very long, but the RCA cables were too short to reach from the unit to my receiver on the shelf above. I had to fashion extensions. Second, there is no lock down for the tone arm when moving the unit. You have to replace the twist tie that secured it during shipment. (There is a plastic stylus guard, but it would still leave the arm unsecured.) Lastly, the dust cover is very large. I am unable to open it fully in the allotted space in my entertainment center, so I have to hold it open while inserting or removing vinyls. These are minor items, but they might be of use to a prospective purchaser.

    Great turnable

    Purchased for a newbie of the vinyl appreciation set. Connected easily to component system. Great sound. Was exciting to watch a 30-something generation explain to his friend about how a turnable operated. Definitely would recommend to anyone who loves to hear music the way it should be played.

    Perfect turntable for just spinning records

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Works great, plays a little fast

    Everything about this TT is great, the quality, look, the fact that it's automatic. The only thing that I didn't like was the fact that it spins the records just a hair too fast. Some people might not even notice, but I'm a very picky listener. I returned mine and upgraded to the AT- LP120 and am very happy that I did. Excellent decision, my advice is to spend the extra couple hundred bucks and get a much better TT that will last forever and sound amazing.

    Rejuvenating my old LPs to Mp3s

    Posted .

    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.

    Excellent 1st Record Player

    |
    Posted .

    I would recommend this item to anyone interested in a record player. It is easy to set up (just follow the directions) and looks great. You need to have speakers, which are not included in the purchase or you will not be able to hear the sound coming from the record player. With speakers though this is an excellent record player. Great sound quality, with the faint skips and scratches in the background that make record player music so desirable and romantic.

    Great entry-level TT

    |
    Posted .

    As like most people getting back into the hobby I was looking for something to get started. Based off of feedback- audio technica was not only make great products, but offered a great entry level turntable to get started. This is a $100 (or less) TT, so you shoul not expect all of the manual tweaks, but you should expect a quality product that will play whatyoir records and allow for self-powered speakers or the ability to play on a stereo receiver. Definitely worth buying if you’re looking for a lower cost option before delving deep into this hobby.

    Replaced old turntable

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this as a gift for my wife to replace our old turntable. I have only used it a few times but it sounds great. I was thinking of buying the Sony but decided on this one. It only has speed, play, stop, and up & down (pause) buttons so it is very simple to use. The RCA cable is very short. I have it sitting right against the side of my receiver and it barely reached. I'm not sure if you can use longer cords because they go inside the case behind a panel. It did reach so no big deal, but if you have it on a different shelf or farther away from your receiver you might want to look in to that or buy a simple extension for a few bucks. MAKE SURE YOU READ THE DIRECTIONS about placing the belt correctly and rotating the table before plugging it in.
