    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.

                                What is the model number of the cartridge that comes with this turntable?
                                Can this cartridge be replaced or upgraded or is the stylus the only thing replaceable?

                                  The AT-LP60 has a fixed cartridge that is not interchangeable.

                                I noticed the AT-LP60 and the AT-LP60 USB are the same price. Is there a reason for this? what are the differences between them besides the USB and recording ability? Do they both have the Dual Magnet phono cartilage?

                                  Thank you for your inquiry. The MSRP for these products are different. You may find a dealer that is selling them for the same price, but that is not usually the case. They are identical turntables except the AT-LP60-USB has a USB port for connection to a computer.

                                My older stereo receiver/amplifier has Phono input ports requiring male RCA cords from the turntable. The LP60 says it has female RCA connections, not male. How would this turntable connect with my amplifier?

                                  Thank you for your inquiry. The RCA cable from the turntable are male. You should be able to connect directly to your receiver..

                                How do I connect to my computer. I assume that I need the USB cable. I went to sound and used the USB codec.

                                I tried loading Audacity 2.0.3 but it gets in VST items and freezes.

                              • Q:

                                Can you go straight from USB input to the computer's speakers without recording in Audacity first? It works fine if I go straight to headphones or speakers, but the only way I seem to be able to get playback on my laptop is if I record the album first and then play the recording.

                                I am on Windows 8 and the PC set-up was considerably different than the manual. That may have had an impact.

                                Thanks!

                                  Computers are playback devices, not playthrough devices. This means that you cannot simply plug in the turntable and hit "Play" and hear sound through your computer's speakers. You must recording software (like the included Audacity program). However, once the software is open, you can simply listen to your record and not have to record the audio. If you have further questions, please contact us at Audio-Solutions@atus.com

                                  You would need to purchase a Bluetooth transmitter that would plug into the turntable and talk with your wireless speaker. We do offer the AT-LP60-BT (which is the Bluetooth version of your turntable). If you don't want to buy another turntable, then buying the transmitter would be your best bet!
