  • Overview

    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).

    Danger BlueTooth MUST Connect to a "MANAGED RECEIVER"

    By 

    from Bandon OR

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

    NOT HAPPY at ALL ...
    BLUE TOOTH FUNCTION REQUIRES Being ACTIVELY MANAGED to SELECT DEVICE. Wont work with 2013 model SAMSUNG top line sound bar. Probably won't work via BT with sound-bars similar design. It appears to only work with speakers that you can actively manage from a computer screen.

        Close Range Bluetooth Turntable

        from Naperville, IL

        Pros

        • Easy Controls
        • Great Sound

        Cons

        • Hard To Set Up
        • Poor Bluetooth Range

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

          Overall the product works as expected. The automatic start and stop functions make life easy. I do wish it would have an on off switch as it is easy to accidentally turn it on while moving the tone arm or contacting the front buttons. I have only used it with the Bluetooth connections and the sound is great. All the richness of the vinyl shines through, provided you are within range. Also to setup the Bluetooth, as it states in the manual, if you read those things, you have to be no greater then 1m from the receiver or about 3 feet when you first pair the device. After the device is paired then you can move it a little further away. Overall I am very satisfied with the turntable and the ability to wirelessly connect to my home audio system a Yamaha receiver with Bluetooth dock YBA-10.

          Bluetooth not as advertised... buyer beware

          By

              Plus side -
              Very ascetically pleasing
              Easy to assemble and operate

              Down side -
              The buttons are a made from a thin plastic, which will likely not contribute to a malfunction... but just feel cheap
              *** 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.

                2 Questions:
                1) Does it have a cueing arm lever to manually raise and lower the stylus at any point on the record hydraulically? I don't see one in the picture.
                2) Can I upgrade to a better cartridge if I choose, even from another manufacturer?

                  A:

                  The AT-LP60-BK-BT (along with all types of the AT-LP60) is a fully automatic turntable. You cannot manually set the stylus. Additionally, the only cartridge you can use on this turntable is the ATN3600l. It sounds like you want the AT-LP120-USB, which is a fully MANUAL turntable that allows you to change the cartridges out for different models.

We've hooked it all up but we hear only a very very faint sound coming from the Turntable itself... nothing from the speakers. Please help I haven't been able to use this in 2 months.
