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

        I have owned Dual 1218and Dual 1019 turntables since the 70's. They were both highly rated turntables that were very expensive. In the 80's and on I listened to CD's , yet still owned over 1,200 record albums. I decided to bring my records out of storage and listen to them again. My 1219 was stolen and my 1019 was not repairable. I began shopping for a new turntable in the $250-$500 range. While shopping I ran upon this turntable and decided to purchase it until I found a good turntable. Guess what? I'm keeping this as my main turntable. It sounds as good or better then my old turntables! It is a great sounding unit. Very balanced in the frequencies and makes no noise or wow and flutter of its own!

          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 !

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

                  I have owned this unit for a few years with on and off use. I first had it connected to an all-in-one stereo in a box unit by using the provided preamp feature. It sounded satisfactory using that limited system. I now have it connected to a late 1960's RCA Victor tube amplified HiFi and it sounds really great. I still think it is limited only by the amplification of the HiFi which is a great compliment to the turntable.

                  I listen to the same records on my family member's much more expensive NAD system and we both agree this Audio Technica sounds about as clear.

                  I accidentally damaged the stylus but replacements are reasonably priced and easily available.

                  The top scratches very easily but a turntable should be handled with care anyway, so this is not of much concern. I wish there was some type of vibration isolation built in, but for the price I really can't complain. I just don't stomp my feet when I walk past it.

                  Overall this is a great unit and I recommend it to anyone looking to either get into the hobby for the first time, or get back into it after a hiatus. Stop shopping around and get this, you won't be disappointed.

                      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!

                            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.

                                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.

                                    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.

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

                                      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.

                                        Hi, I have a Bose SoundLink Color Bluetooth speaker:

                                        https://www.bose.com/en_us/products/speakers/wireless_speakers/soundlink-color-bluetooth-speaker.html

                                        The speaker has one, 3.5 mm auxiliary input port. Does the AT-LP60 work with one such aux cable?

                                        Or should I purchase the AT-LP60 BT instead?

                                        Thank you

                                          Thank you for your inquiry. You can use a standard step down transformer for this. The 50 cycle is ok.

                                          No, it will not. Not to the USB port anyway. Look for a 3.5 mm (1/8 inch) INPUT jack on the sound bar instead. This type jack may be marked LINE, AUDIO or AUX. Make certain that it is an INPUT and not an OUTPUT. You can connect the turntables analog audio cable with the Red and White RCA plugs to this type input jack by using the provided dual RCA to 3.5 mm stereo mini-plug adapter cable.

                                          When going into a receiver like yours, the switch on the back of the turntable needs to be set to "PHONO". So plug the RCA cable into the PHONO jack on the back of your reciever and have the switch on your turntable set to "PHONO" and you should be good to go!

                                        I hooked my turntable up to speakers and the right audio channel is much louder than the left channel. Because of this, base an instruments are coming though much louder and vocals are barely audible. I checked to make sure it was set to line. Is there a way to adjust this?
