    Blow me...after all those years the Aiwa PX-E860 was basically slagged off by the audiophile community, now call it something else and ...it's great. This IS the same design... 'a more compact size', the white stylus holder, same front panels and buttons, even down to having no tone arm holder.... everything ! As an owner of the original Aiwa mentioned, I agree it a great piece of well priced kit. Now give the Aiwa some credit !

    I was so excited about my purchase initially, the sound quality was good for the price and it was easy to use. I've used this product about an hour per week over the 1year I've owned it and it is no longer working. It can't seem to get up to speed and the needle can't figure out the proper place to touch down on the record(that occurred 6months into use but could be rectified manually). I figure paying for repair and the hassle of returning it isn't worth it. Another product for the landfill.

          This is a great starter turntable. I like the automatic arm function. It takes the guesswork out of putting the needle down on the right place to start the record. I like that it has the built-in dust cover that is closable during operation. It'll stay a part of my audio equipment for a long time.

            Needed an upgrade, the briefcase ones have built in speakers and a heavy arm, move up and down damaging vinyls. This turntable is better if you have like $30 more bucks, provided you have non Bluetooth speakers. Better quality and moves the arm so you don't have to.

              This is a perfect turntable for casual listening, obviously I would not recommend it for scratching as it is a belt drive, but it does a very good job for listening and vinyl sampling.

                Comments about Audio-Technica AT-LP60 Fully Automatic Stereo Turntable System:

                This record player has the best sound you'll ever find for this price. The money for other budget turntables tends to go into design rather than sound quality. This is quick to set up, easy to use and it sounds great with good speakers. Because of the limited features, it isn't very customizable. We tried to use a cork mat, but it's thicker than the standard mat provided with this turntable. Since we can't raise the tonearm to compensate, it resulted in a little bit of sound distortion. But if you're not looking to spend a lot of money on a turntable to start with, this can help restrain the urge to spend money on all the little upgrades. This is still hands down the best turntable in this price range.

                          I try to use this turntable to play a wide variety of records. Rock to Jazz to Classical and everything in between. I play old vinyl and newer 180 gram stuff. The sound is always distorted for deep bass. And the skipping. DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU WANT TO PLAY NEW VINYL. You know what, just don't buy this. I contacted support and they sent me a weight for the cart to prevent skipping. They didn't send along any instructions on how to use it, but after I figured it out it made the distortion way worse. Look on the web. This thing is junk. I'm sorry I ever bought it and its too late to return now. Buyer beware.

                          • Q:

                            I've had this turntable for about a week with no issues, until now. The rpm seems to be very erratic, often dipping slower then coming back up to normal speed. I checked the belt and it's fine. At first I thought it was the new record I was playing but the same symptoms happened on a record that played fine just a few days ago. Thoughts?

                              Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, you will need to send the turntable into the Service Center,

                            How come when i am listening to my vinyl through a speaker, i can still hear the faint music from the actual record itself? it sounds sort of like an echo and makes it hard for me to listen to the music coming from the speaker.

                              Thank you for your inquiry. You are hearing the needle in the groove. This is normal.

                              You may connect the AT-LP60 turntable to any LINE level input such as a Sonos Bridge which will allow you to integrate into your Sonos system.

                              Stylus life is based off of the type of stylus tip and the included ATN3600L stylus life is roughly 400-1000 hours of use. I recommend you change out the stylus when you hear a tonal change in the higher frequencies.

                              Yes you can play 10" records but manually moving the tone arm to the beginning of the record. The automatic feature to begin playing records is for 12" and 7" only.
