    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.

        All I wanted to do was turn some LPs in MP3s. What a hassle. The documentation was awful. So I wrote support and was told they'd get back to me in 3-5 days...more than long enough to get my money back.

                  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 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.

                                  I LOVE my AT-LP60 USB. I have had no technical issues with it, but if I were to have them, AT support is great (they helped me with my previous turntable of theirs).
                                  The sound quality is great and very easy to use, just push the button and it starts!

                                      You may connect the turntable to a stereo receiver or directly to powered speakers. Powered speakers indicate the speakers have their own power amplifier built into them and they will have their own power source. A good example of powered speakers are computer speakers or portable speakers that have an internal battery. I recommend going to your local electronics store and inquire of their stock of powered speakers and see which will best suit your needs.

                                      There is no way to play directly from the turntable. It does not contain speakers. You may connect the turntable to a computer and play through the computers speakers, or use a pair of POWERED type speakers for a simple and cost-effective setup. You may also connect the turntable to a traditional stereo amplifier or receiver and play it through the (passive type) speakers that would be connected to the amplifier or receiver.

                                      The permanently attached cartridge on the AT-LP60 is the AT3600L. The only replacement is the ATN3600L. The stylus you listed will not work.

                                      Thank you for your inquiry. The LP-60-USB can be connected to either powered speakers, a stereo receiver for a stereo system, or through your computer to listen to your records.

                                    A few years back I purchased the AT-LP2D-USB and never used it. I now have finally gotten around to using the System and realize I'm missing the turntable mat. Is there anyway I can obtain a mat for my system? Wondering if the newer system's mat might be compatable?
