        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!

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

                                    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.

                                            You may connect the turntable to a LINE level input and on most powered speakers, such as you listed, will have a LINE level aux input. Check with the speaker manufacturer to confirm.

                                            No, the AT-LP60 does not have an internal Bluetooth transmitter. The AT-LP60-BT does! The "BT" in the code indicates an internal Bluetooth transmitter.

                                          I am considering the Audio-Technical AT-LP60BK-USB as a gift. I believe I also need to purchase speakers and am looking at the Pioneer SP-BS22 LR. Will these work together? Do I need to bu an additional cable? This is the first turntable I've purchased in a long, long time.
                                          Many thanks.

Is it normal for the record to play in a slight wobble/wave motion? It all sounds fine, but i can see the records going slightly up and down and they move in a circle.

                                            Thank you for your inquiry. The turntable needs to be plugged into an analog input. It looks like on the back far left of the preamp there are two Red and White inputs that say "CD" under it. I would try those inputs.

                                          We use our player almost everyday but take good care. Recently, when a side of a record is done, the arm goes back to the cradle, only to immediately return to the vinyl. Pressing the stop button does nothing. I'm wondering if we perhaps hit a sequence of buttons for continual repeat or what. Or maybe it's a glitch from using it too much.

                                            Thank you for your inquiry. After verifying that the belt is still around the pulley (or after reinstalling the belt), follow the steps below to reset the turntable's automatic cycle mechanism, then retry operating it:
                                            1. Unplug the AC power cord from the AC power source (typically a wall outlet).
                                            2. Press and release the STOP button.
                                            3. While holding the tonearm in the tonearm rest with one hand, use your other hand to slowly rotate the aluminum record platter in a clockwise direction for at least 10 full revolutions.
                                            4. Place a record on the record platter.
                                            5. Plug the AC power cord back into the AC power source.
                                            6. Press and release the START button
