        I used to look for high quality audio equipment, but everything I found was not cheap. About a week ago found an ad with this awesome product and decided to give it a chance. It is great!!
        Now I have all of my vinyl records been played over and over :)

          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.

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

              I bought this about two years ago brand new from my local record store that also sells new record players. I'd done my research and I knew I wanted this turntable. I was starting to really get into vinyl and wanted to upgrade to a legit record player as opposed to my previous "novelty" one. I am so so happy with this turntable. It's extremely easy to use. I feel like it's fairly sturdy (I have several cats that I catch resting on it—dust cover closed—from time to time and it's never messed up!) I sometimes wish I would have gotten the model that is identical but includes a USB drive for those old records or records that don't come with a download code, because I do still collect music digitally as well, but I love this turntable. Great sound. Never had a problem with distortion or wonkiness. 10/10 recommend!

                      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!

                                        Thank you for your inquiry. The turntable does not have built in speakers and must be connected to a set of powered speakers or a stereo receiver where the volume is to be attenuated.

                                        The linked product (AT-LP60) is not Bluetooth.

                                        The AT-LP60-BT does have an integrated Bluetooth transmitter but it is my understanding that Sonos does not use Bluetooth but rather WiFi. You may connect the analog connection from the turntable to an analog input into the Sonos system and you may contact that manufacture to inquire of the procedure.

Once i picked up on that I realized that it's happening to ALL of my other records too. Plz help

                                        This happens because Vinyl records are mechanically recorded sound, so, even without speakers, your needle(stylus) will vibrate, and create sound. You can't fix this problem, and it's not the problem either, it's just how this technology works.

                                        There is no speaker in the turntable. What you are probably hearing is often called surface noise.

                                      So, the tips of my RCA cable broke inside of my receiver. Stupid move of moving them while still plugged in... Anyways, is there an easy way to replace the cable from within the at-lp60. I wish it was not built in but yeah... should I take it to a repair shop or literally cut my losses and buy a new turntable?
