    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.

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!

                                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.

                                    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.

                                  I will be connecting this to my existing Sony surround sound system receiver. The system is System model DAV-DZ170. The receiver model # is HBD-DZ170. There is a TV/Cable Audio in RCA red and white plugs on back of receiver. There is a Audio in feature on the remote and receiver. Will this turntable work using these plugs and feature and speakers of the surround sound system? Will the existing pre-amp allow this to work? Thank you!

                                    You have the computer, turntable, and receiver on different ground legs. It is not recommended for that setup.

                                    No. You may use a third party Bluetooth transmitter or you may purchase the AT-LP60-BT which has a Bluetooth transmitter internally.
