    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 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.

      Needed an upgrade, the briefcase ones have built in speakers and a heavy arm, move up and down damaging vinyls. This turntable is better if you have like $30 more bucks, provided you have non Bluetooth speakers. Better quality and moves the arm so you don't have to.

        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!

                                Yes you can play 10" records but manually moving the tone arm to the beginning of the record. The automatic feature to begin playing records is for 12" and 7" only.

                                Thank you for your inquiry. This could possible be due to a damaged or worn stylus. You can replace it with the ATN3600L.

                                The grounding is done between the turntable and the RIAA preamp and since the AT-LP60 has an internal preamp, the grounding is done internally and carried through the signal chain out in the ground of the RCA cables.

                              does the at-lp60 automatically stop spinning when the record is done? if not, will it affect my record if i leave it spinning after the record is over?

                                Yes, the AT-LP60 is a fully automatic turntable.

                              What is the difference between the ATN3600L stylus and the ATN3600? Would it be okay / better / worse if I used the ATN3600 instead of the L?

                                The only difference is the "L" has a lower compliance (stiffer dampening) for a higher tracking force. (Used in LP60 since automatic and a heavier tracking force is needed when tone arm comes down to not skate.)

                                You will need to use the intended replacement stylus for whichever cartridge you are using. If you are using the AT-LP60 models, you will need to use the ATN3600L.

                                Being "older" technology, to move forward in the audio, you raise up the tone arm and move it further towards the center of the record.

                              I have a AT-PL50 System and haven't used it for some time. I'm pretty sure the stylus needs replacing. What model stylus should I order in case it's needed.
                              Thank you in advance for your input.

                                The replacement stylus for the AT-PL50 and the AT-LP60 model turntables is the ATN3600L.

                                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.
