    It's really easy to take this baby out of the box and get it set up. I followed this YouTube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Zi7d6j8aQ0), and had it set up by the time the video ended. Within minutes I was listening to records.

    It's super easy to use this on your PC/Mac (even Linux :-D). Plugs in via USB, appears in Audacity, and BAM, mp3 (or wav or FLAC or w/e) of your vinyl.

    The only problem was that the mp3 file was a little quiet, but that was probably my Audacity settings. Though with MP3Gain, I was able to fix the mp3. I'll need to experiment with the settings to get the right ones.

    Connected to my receiver (that has a phono input), it sounds amazing!

    I highly recommend this record player. It's inexpensive, works, sounds great, and looks great!

    Note: This can only play 33's and 45's, not 78's.

          My wife bought me one of these and i am pleased as punch! The sound quality was better than expected and it enabled me to listen to my favorite albums with no huss and fuss. This is a turntable I would buy again if this one were to die (shudder). Now if they would make a cassette deck to go with it...

              I bought this as my first record player. I have a fairly large collection with old scratched up records from Vera Lynn and Nat King Cole, through the 60's through to 2014!

              Everything from singles and cheaply made records to 180gram records all work and sound great!

              My recent favorites inlcuding Daft Punk sound absolutely incredible.

              This record player is easy to use, extremely reliable and sounds excellent.

              I highly recommend it.

                I set out to get a turntable specifically to just play my records which had been in boxes for years. It was time to bring them out...just because! I have all my music on CD and other digital media but that is not the point. This turntable was reasonably priced as I did not want to spend $400.00 on a turntable! so I went into my local Audio store and saw this and thought to myself "Hey!". So I bought it, took it home and had it set up and playing...an original Beatle record in no time. Having the option to put my vinyl to digital is a bonus. As for sound quality...good as any! Besides, living in a condo doesn't give much opportunity to crank it to 11! Good product.

                    Only just got this turntable but am already amazed. I had it set up to my speakers and playing my first vinyl within 5 minutes of receiving the parcel. At first looking at the pictures of the cables I was wondering how it would fit into my speaker but they don't show a picture of the cable attached to the back which fits perfectly. The quality of sound for the price is also exceptional. In conclusion this turntable is perfect if you are looking to start a vinyl collection without too much money.

                              After continued use for the past 6 months, the turntable while definitely adequate , is overpriced for what you get. If you don't mind having to get up every couple of minutes to change a record, then you will be happy. I would have been happier if they would have offered a stackable feature to be able to listen in comfort to concentrate and be enveloped in the musical experience. That is not the fault of the equipment, just a lack of a feature. So, all in all, it is nothing more than adequate compared to other equipment in this price range.

                                  When plugging into a RCA input labeled as "Phono", you will need to flip the switch on the back of the turntable to "Phono". This will deactivate the internal preamp on the turntable, in favor of an external Phono preamp (found on your stereo receiver).

                                Hello. I bought this via Amazon and have had no problems to play the music. When I just moved into South Korea which uses 220v, I turned it on but it didn't work. Of course, I used the voltage transducer. Let me know the reason and its countermeasure. Thanks.

                                How do I connect a ground wire to my AT-LP60 to eliminate ground loop hum when using the "phono" out to my preamp? Must turntables require a ground wire when using the low voltage phono output.

                                  This turntable does not require, nor would it benefit from, a separate ground wire.

                                  This particular model does not have Bluetooth. Your options are to connect the turntable to the AUX input on the speaker if the speaker has one, or to add a bluetooth transmitter to the turntable. Make certain that any Bluetooth transmitter you purchase is compatible with your bluetooth speakers. An adapter cable is provided with the turntable that will convert the Red and White RCA type plugs to a single 3.5 mm stereo plug. We do make a Bluetooth version of this turntable, it is the AT-LP60BK-BT. This model does NOT have a USB output connector.

                                I purchased this unit in February of 2016. For at least half the time I've had it, the sound will occasionally cut in and out at the end of a track. When it cuts out, all sound, including the usual record pops and crackles, disappears. Does it need a new stylus or could it be a wiring problem?

                                  Try removing and reinstalling the stylus assembly.

                                  Check the stylus for dirt/debris. Clean it using a soft, dry brush.

                                  If this is happening on recordings ONLY, see if the "Sound Activated Recording" box is checked in Audacity. If it is, uncheck it.
