    AT-LP60 Fully Automatic Stereo Turntable System 4.3 5 10 10
    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
    excellent product! I bought this turntable to replace a Realistic LAB-330 I bought about 25 years ago. I could not be happier! This turntable is fully automatic and the sound reproduction is nothing less than great. I don't see why anyone would spend $100's of dollars on more expensive units when the AT-LP60 does it all for much,much less. A real winner as far as I am concerned> February 1, 2012

    Bad sound quality

    I came across a receiver and a phono preamp and hooked up the turntable to the preamp and then to the receiver, complete with a brand new set of Sony monitors, great speakers.

    I also hooked up my media center PC via Line and that sounds great with this setup. The turntable sounds terrible though, what could I possibly be doing wrong? Is this a stylus issue, maybe?

    Make sure you output selector is set to phono and not to line. This would overload your phono preamp causing a great deal of distortion
