    AT-LP60 Fully Automatic Stereo Turntable System 4.4 5 13 13
    Listening to vinyl again So happy to have a turntable again...listening to my vinyl....yeah! And a great price to boot! I am very pleased with this product and very happy that audio companies are still making turntables...keep up the good work Audio-Technica!! March 28, 2015
    Great Product! 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. January 27, 2015
    Quality & Reliability Without Breaking The Bank 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! August 12, 2014
    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

    Record Player Skipping

    I have had trouble with this record player skipping. I just bought it 2 weeks ago and with all of my brand new discs, it skips like mad. Makes listening to my disks impossible. I want to say it has something to do with tone arm pressure, but I see there is no way to adjust it. I've checked its level on the table, and it still skips when the volume is low. I notice it gets bad several tracks in, but will skip within seconds of hitting the play button. I checked the stylus and it looks good. Any suggestions?

    Answer: 
    I've been using mine for a year or more and it recently developed a skipping problem on the last part of a side. There appears to be a significant amount of force pushing sideways on the arm away from the center of the record as it nears the last few inches of playable space. No skips on the first few tracks, but skips only when it reaches the inner tracks. The white part of the stylus head shows no space where it touches the black part and the lifting mechanism is well clear of the arm after it goes down. Any ideas what might be going on here?

    Answer: 
    Check the tone arm lift mechanism which is located just in front of the tone arm pivot point. When the arm is down on the record (playing), the lift mechanism should NOT be touching the underside of the tone arm. There should be about 1/8 inch of clearance between them. If the lift is touching the arm, lower the height of the lift by pressing down on the lift mechanism with one hand while tightening the small black philips head screw in the mechanism with the other hand. Does the STOP button function correctly? Make certain there is NO gap between the white stylus assembly and the black Cartridge head above it. They should be flush where the meet at the front and on the sides of the Cartridge.

    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
