        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.

              Comments about Audio-Technica AT-LP60-USB LP-to-Digital Recording System:

              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.

                            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.

                              Ok so I just bought this turntable and have been liking it but I've been looking into getting some bookshelf speakers for it. From what I've read through other questions, I need to get powered speakers? So I can control the volume since it has the built it pre amp? Are there any goods speakers in particular I should look into getting? I would like to stay between $100 and $200.

                              Hi there,
                              I've read some great reviews about this vinyl player, and am very interested in purchasing one.
                              Just wondered if it will work in New Zealand with a power plug adapter/transformer? I've seen several contradictory posts, so would love to confirm once and for all. if that is a separate product, could someone please link me to it?

                              Sincerely, and thank you for your time

                              Glenn

                                The power is different and with the proper adapters AND transformer, the turntable will work but will have a difference in 50Hz vs 60Hz.

                                You may also purchase certain Audio-Technica turntable models through Audio-Technica Singapore. http://www.audio-technica.com.sg/products/turntables

                              The turntable buttons were not working correctly and the records sounded like "chipmunks". After awhile there was a burning smell?

                              The burning smell was either plastic or rubber burning kind. There were no burn marks that I noticed. I put the belt back on but the turntable was not spinning except for a few stutters.

                                Check the drive belt for proper routing. The belt goes around the drive rim on the underside of the aluminum record platter (which it comes preinstalled around) and the gold colored motor pulley in the upper left corner of the turntable (at about the 10 o'clock position. The belt DOES NOT go around the white plastic post located on the right side of the turntable (at about the 2 o'clock position).
                                Make certain the belt is riding in the tapered section of the motor pulley. If it rides too high on the pulley (the belt would be sticking up above the top, flat surface of the pulley in this case), the platter speed will be slightly fast. If your speed is so fast that it sounds like the chipmunks, check to make certain you are playing the record on the correct speed. If the speed setting is correct, there may be a problem with your turntable. Exchange it for another one through the reseller it was purchased from, or send it to us for repair/replacement. Following is a link to our repair return instructions should you need to send it to us.

                              Recording level too low

                              Bought the AT-LP60USB, followed the videos, everything is working fine but the sound result is too low. I tried many recording level with Audacity (50, 75, 85, 100) and even at 100 the end result is too low.

                              The turntable is connected USB to the computer only (too far from my HiFi) and I monitor the recording on my computer speakers. The switch in on Line even though the table is not connected to my Hifi system.

                              The file then goes to the hard drive, to the DAC and then to my amp... and the sound result is considerably lower than my other music.

                              What to do?

                              Thanks!

                              Will I get individual mp3 files of each track on the record?

                              Using USB to a computer, will the tracks on the record be automatically converted to individual mp3 files? Or, just playing the record all the way through, will I just get one big mp3 file for all the tracks on that side?
