    TWICE VIP AWARD 2016 WINNER
    Cut the cord, keep the vinyl. The AT-LP60-BT gives you all the great features of our popular AT-LP60 fully automatic belt-drive stereo turntable but with the added convenience of Bluetooth® wireless connectivity. So you can set up your turntable in one room and listen to it in another without having to run a bunch of cables. Up to eight different pairs of speakers, headphones or other devices that utilize Bluetooth® wireless technology can be stored in the AT-LP60-BT’s memory. Once stored, a simple push of the turntable’s Function button is all that is required to connect the turntable to your chosen wireless device.

    The AT-LP60-BT also gives you the option of operating it just like a regular turntable with a traditional wired connection. Either way – wired or wireless – you get outstanding audio with the ease of automatic operation: just push the Start button to begin playing a record, and the Stop button to lift and return the tone arm and shut off the turntable (the stop function occurs automatically when a record has played all the way through). A tone arm Lift button is also included to let you raise and lower the tone arm without stopping the turntable.

    Audio-Technica has been a leader in phono cartridge design for more than 50 years, and that expertise shows in the AT-LP60-BT’s Dual Magnet™ cartridge with replaceable stylus. The cartridge is integrated into the tone arm for assured performance and ease of setup.

    The AT-LP60-BT plays both 33-1/3 and 45 RPM records and comes with a 45 RPM adapter, a dual RCA output cable (for wired connection) and a removable hinged dust cover. The turntable is available in black (AT-LP60BK-BT), white (AT-LP60WH-BT) and navy (AT-LP60NV-BT).

    Okay, I almost returned this record player b/c I couldn't sync it. Turns out you have to hold the bluetooth button down for 5+ seconds. It initially flashes blue/purple and acts like it's trying to sync. If you continue to hold it down, the button starts alternating blue and RED. Then, it synced up perfectly. Totally silly but hope this helps someone.

    *** The Bluetooth function is terrible. Ive tried connecting it to three separate speaker systems to no avail. For example, do not count on this turntable to work wirelessly with a Bose Soundlink, sound-bar, or similar design. It appears to only work with speakers that you can actively manage from a computer screen. Really disappointing.

        We gave this turntable to our son this past Christmas, so we haven't had it for an extended period of time. That said, this is a nice entry level turntable. Bluetooth was seamless (once I watched the video instruction). We paired it up with Edifier Bluetooth speakers. The sound is great, this system is great.

                    I had purchased this device to pair with my Onkyo TX-8160 receiver but although it showed it paired, no sound was forthcoming! In searching the Audio-Technica site I found numerous individuals had the same issue. I plugged in a BTunes Bluetooth transmitter into the audio out from the turntable and that not only paired but offered sound! Moral of the story is it turns out there are three flavors of Bluetooth and they are not necessarily compatible!

                      Like everyone else, I too got suckered into this turntable because of the BT. It took about 5 tries to get it to connect to my speaker system but it finally took. Then, without any reason, it stopped connecting to my speaker. Tried for hours to reconnect without success. I tried other BT speakers and it worked great. I checked my speaker and I can connect with other system great. The turntable and this speaker are just no longer on speaking terms.

                        Comments about Audio-Technica AT-LP60BK-BT Fully Automatic Wireless Belt-Drive Stereo Turntable:

                        Great looking turntable, easy to set-up (it took me less than 5 minutes, although the red-ribbon got stuck to the tape and I had to put the belt on with my finger, but no big deal), which I bought for the BT feature, primarily. So, imagine my surprise when it came time to pair it with a Beats Pill 2.0. I figured this would also take less than 5 minutes: WRONG! After 40 minutes of tinkering with the BT button on the turntable, and having it lock on to BLUE, as well as hearing the Pill's synch sound effect, it still wouldn't transmit sound to the speaker. Finally, completely befuddled and frustrated, I gave up on the Pill and tried to synch my Amazon Echo. Since I could use the Echo's iPhone App to see/manage the turntable's presence on my WiFi network, I was able to select it once it came up (i.e., red and blue flashes on the BT light on the turntable) and it synch'ed to the Echo. After all that, it sounds great. However, for subsequent plays, you have to first press the BT button on the turntable to re-activate the connection (luckily, the Echo is always on, so no need to reactivate via the App every time, thank goodness!). The BT light stays solid blue throughout playback. The instruction manual doesn't specify this, big surprise, and word to the wise. In sum, had I known about all these BT debacles, I wouldn't have purchased this product. Caveat Emptor, consider yourself duly warned.

                            Great turntable for anyone starting out with vinyl! The sound does not noticeably change the Bluetooth option as compared to the wired option. The buttons don't seem to be too sturdy but then again I don't think most people would be constantly pressing the 'start' 'stop' button. It was also super easy to set up and pair with another Bluetooth device, though I would recommend that you check the Bluetooth version on the device you intend to pair this turntable with, the turntable uses BT 3.0 and i'm not sure if it's backward compatible. I bought a BT 3.0 adapter for my samsung Hi-Fi system (which did not have built-in bluetooth option) and it paired rather quickly the first time, after that it takes only a second to pair since the turntable's bluetooth can store about 8 connections (after that, the oldest connection is deleted to make room for a new one). Overall, I love this turntable!

                                Thank you for your inquiry. It is not designed for digitizing vinyl.

                                Since the cartridge is permanently attached and is not user replaceable, the tracking force and anti-skate adjustments are already made within the turntable and are not user adjustable.

                              Will I be able to connect this turntable directly to a Sonos Play 5 using the included RCA cable or will I need to go through an external amp?

                                As the turntable has an internal RIAA preamp, you may connect the turntable directly to a LINE level input to integrate in your Sonos system.

                              I have successfully paired it with an Amazon Echo. The two devices are very close in proximity (about 4 feet separate them), however the audio is always stuttering/glitching/cutting out for a millisecond.

                              Is there anything I can do to fix this?

                              I have this product but when I plug the RCA cables into my amp the sound quality is very low. Do I need to purchase a separate pre-amp or 3rd party product to improve the sound quality? The sound quality is currently significantly better through my tiny bluetooth Monster speaker than my main sound system.

                                Thank you for your inquiry. We have had issues pairing with the Beats products. There appears to be an incompatibility.
