    AT-LP60 Fully Automatic Stereo Turntable System 4.4 5 11 11
    Quality & Reliability Without Breaking The Bank Haven't had a turntable in many years, but wanted to get one so I could rekindle my love of vinyl. I did a lot of research online and this turntable kept popping up and always with good reviews. Being that I own other Audio-technica products that I have been very happy with, this became a no brainer. Well, once again they did not disappoint. The turntable is above and beyond what I was hoping to get out of a turntable at this price. It's ease of use and solid performance is fantastic. Like another reviewer stated, it would have been nice to have a tone arm lock, but that's definitely not a deal breaker. I hooked this turntable up to a pair of Audioengine A2+ powered speakers and it sounds great! So if your looking for an inexpensive, yet a great sounding, reliable turntable, look no further. I am very happy with this product! August 12, 2014
    AT-LP60 above average for entry level turntable the AT-LP60 is a very good entry level turntable and very well thought out with ease of use. if taken care of properly it should serve you well for many years. March 7, 2014
    You get more than what you paid for The Audio Technica AT-LP60 plays records with a precision and care that no other turntable at this price has to offer. The sound quality is stellar for home listening. The stylus that comes with the turntable picks up a great range of frequencies. This is a purchase that I am more than satisfied with. My only complaint is that the belt does not seem durable. Surprisingly though, this cheap belt rotates the platter with precision. I compliment the precision because the precision on a Jensen wooden turntable that I purchased was sub-par and it had a similar belt. This turntable was definitely an incredible upgrade.

    Does not work in Australia I bought this on Amazon and expected a major international company would understand that someone buying the product in Australia would need an Australian plug. doesn't work with adapter or transformer. Waste of money, couldn't return November 12, 2012
    An excellent value, comparable to more costly units. Although the dust cover is a trifle thin, it is easily removeable. I think the rest of the AT-LP60 turntable is super! I did some web and in-person research before selecting the Audio-Technica and was impressed that the configuration of the controls and functions are the same as some units costing $40-$60 more. I was not sure what to expect at this price point. I have conected this turntable to an older Sony stereo receiver. Set up was quite easy, instructions concise, and I was immediatley impressed with the quality of the sould output. Overall, I would say that this is an excellent value and I am very pleased with my purchase. October 15, 2012
    Fantastic player Simply put, I think you should give serious consideration to purchasing this player. For an in depth analysis, I have made a video review. If you would like more information, I have included the link to a youtube video. May 23, 2012
    Solid basic performer. For a second or third turntable, or a primary unit for the non-audiophile, this is probably the best choice out there for the money. Being fully automatic, you don't have to worry about getting to personal with the discs (which can lead to damage in the wrong hands.) The sound quality is much better than one might expect from a budget unit. It has a decent built-in preamp so you can connect it to any type of amplification. This is also convenient for those wishing to use this table to record their records onto digital formats. The small, lightweight nature of the unit also lends itself to that use, as you can easily sit in on the desk next to your computer and spend some happy time recording your discs. There is one major flaw with the design that I must complain about however, and that is the lack of a tonearm lock. Shame on Audio Technica for this. They couldn't include a ten cent piece of plastic to lock the tonearm down when not in use? It was really chintzy of them to do that...and the included twist tie that kept the tonearm in place during shipping. Yeah...tacky. March 28, 2012
    Proves analog is at least as good as digital I never thought I'd say it but many of my vinyls sound better than my CDs of the same albums. I bought this for my wife for Christmas 2011 since she is business manager for a number of indie bands and they send her copies of their albums on vinyl. To test it and come up with a simple workflow to get them onto her laptop/iPod, I tried it with my old LPs that had sat for nearly 20 years! Here's how: I connected the line output to a Presonus FireStudio audio interface and recorded the audio with Presonus Studio 1 Pro. Listening through my near-field monitors, keyboard amps and a variety of headphones, I was a tad disappointed when comparing against the CD recording of the same material. In particular, it sounded a bit nasally. BUT - the audio software lets me adjust the EQ. All it needed was a reduction in the mid range (1 to 2kHz) and a slight boost in the high range. The result? Remarkable. The results sound much better than the CD. The bass is much warmer and really drives the rhythm of the classic rock material. The 4 rating for audio quality is just because the out-of-box sound does this product something of a disservice. Of course, the downside of LPs is the pops and clicks. I tried #then bought) a program called ClickRepair that is astonishing. Once "declicked", I convert tracks to high quality MP3s, add cover art and that's it. Best thing - I don't have to buy CDs of my old LPs. Given the terrible "fad" of digitally remastering CDs, it's great news. For LPs I no longer have but recorded to cassette, I will buy used LPs to get the artwork and sound quality. Love it. March 6, 2012

    Answer: 
    The voltage can be changed by the converter, but the frequency (60 HZ) is "created" at the power generation plant. You could contact AT to see if the AT-120-USB, with a speed adjustment, may compensate for the change in frequency. At 50 HZ, the table will be going slower.

    Thank you for your inquiry. The AT-LP60 was designed for use in the US on 120V, 60 hz. I'm not sure that it will work on 230V 50hz with a converter.

    Answer: 
    Hi, Brady:

    I just purchased the AT-LP60 and I am very pleased. There is a switch on the back of the turntable which allows you to connect it to a stereo system which has a "Phono" input on the back or, by selecting the "Line" setting on the back of the turntable, you can connect to simple computer speakers or to a soundbar. Hope this is helpful.

    Answer: 
    The AT-LP60 Turntable may be used in conjunction with a pair of self-powered stereo speakers, a stereo system consisting of a stereo amplifier or stereo receiver and passive speakers, or with a computer when connected to the LINE input on the computer. For a computer that does not have a LINE input, the addition of a USB interface will permit connection to the USB port on a computer.

    Answer: 
    If the turntable is playing too fast at 33 1/3, and 45 is even faster (you said speed settings did not fix the issue), make sure when you installed the belt it was all the way down the drive spindle to the machined area of the spindle. If it is up too high, on the flange of the spindle it will play noticeably too fast.

    Set up turntable exactly as per instructions - plugged into Luxman C-03B Pre amp Tuner input. No phono input available.TT out put on LINE not Phono. Sounds great on low volume but humming increases unacceptably as vol increased. Amp has earth wire connection but TT does not. Tried connection to different inputs ie Video, CD etc but still get earth humming.
    Manual says nothing earthing - pls advise fix asap.
    I am in Australia!

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Does the hum change when you touch the tone arm? If yes, then it could be poor connections at the cartridge or a grounding issue.

    I have also found that many power supplies for computers, video games, etc. can cause RF (radio frequency) interference that is picked up by the cartridge then amplified. Also lamp dimmers, transformers and ballasts can all cause RF interference. Try unplugging (from the mains) any electronic devices nearby, turning off lamps etc to see if that helps.

    Last resort; Attach a piece of speaker wire to the chassis of your receiver and then touch it to the ground portion (the outer ring of the connector) of the RCA connection at the receiver. If the hum stops then it is a ground loop and you can try to make that connection permanent. Good Luck.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. It sounds like you may have the turntable too close to the speakers and what you are hearing is feedback. I have this problem because my space is limited and I have to place the turntable very close to one of the speakers. Try moving the turntable farther from the speaker.
