    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 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.

                      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 !

                                  I have this player and love it. However, the sound volume is very low when connected to my sound bar. I think that I need a volume amplifier. What kind of amplifier would be compatible?

                                  Hello: I love my At-LP60 Usb turntable and would like to figure out a way to transmit the audio to a wifi speaker so I can enjoy my records outside. I have looked up various dongle type attachments but wanted to be sure they worled before making a purchase. What would be the best way to get my turntable to work on a wireless wifi/bluetooth speaker? Thank you.

                                    No, as the output level is a LINE level signal. A headphone amplifier would be used for proper setup.

                                  because the tone-arm is not adjustable, is it safe to use a slipmat of a different thickness? I just got a new slipmat, but I realized that it is about half as thin as the stock mat. I figured that using a thicker one would increase the tracking force, but was wondering if using a thin mat would have adverse effects and damage my records.

                                    The thickness of the slipmat would not have any effect of the tracking force but rather would change the rake angle of the stylus tip. The general rule is to have the tone arm as level as possible for proper tracking.

                                    You may connect the turntable to a stereo receiver or directly to powered speakers. Powered speakers indicate the speakers have their own power amplifier built into them and they will have their own power source. A good example of powered speakers are computer speakers or portable speakers that have an internal battery. I recommend going to your local electronics store and inquire of their stock of powered speakers and see which will best suit your needs.
