    Perfect turntable for beginners

    Switched from a Crosley (which I hated for its terrible sound) to this turntable and couldn't be happier. Setup was super easy and my records sound great on it.

    This is an awesome turntable so far, bought it to replace an older one that wasn't worth repairing. Puts out great sound, and is quite easy to use. Looks stylish too! Thanks Audio Technica

    Great for a cheap yet high-fidelity turntable

    I got this for christmas one year expecting a low-fidelity yet portable turntable. To my surprise it was great especially with the right equipment with my setup. I would reccomend this to college students because of the affordability and convenience.

    I bought this turntable about 12 - 16 months ago. I take very good care of my audio equipment and my vinyls. After not having used it for a while (I play mostly CD's) I place a record on it and the table did not turn. I took off the wheel covers and saw that the rubber band which would turn the platter was off... not in place. I replaced it carefully but discovered it was not the band... there was no power to turn the platter no matter how often I tried. I'm sure I had it on correctly. There was no other configuration that fit the size of the rubber band. Also, there were no diagrams to assure me I had done it correctly.

  • Q & A

    Can I attach this turntable to a bluetooth speaker (Bose Soundlink in this case) using an aux cable?)

    I have put my turntable together well. I have even installed the belt alright. The problem is that it plays at 33 1/3 speed very fast. What can do to fix it? I thought that I had it on the wrong speed but it was set right.

    B. B.

    Several scenarios could be the cause of the faster speed. One way a pitch would change would be the platter speed or the record was recorded onto the vinyl record at a different pitch than a digital format. This is sometimes done for fitting content onto a finite space on a record. Another is the belt is no longer properly seeded on the drive motor pulley. If the belt rides too high or too low, the platter will travel slightly faster causing the higher pitch. See the information below. If you have not already done so, make certain the belt is still routed around the gold colored motor pulley and that the belt is taut. The easiest way to check this is to remove the black felt mat from the turntable and rotate the aluminum record platter by hand until one of the large rectangular openings is positioned at the upper left corner of the turntable (at about the 10 o'clock position). Look down into the opening and locate the gold colored motor pulley. Make certain the belt is around the pulley and that the belt is taut. The belt does not go around the white colored post on the right side of the turntable (at about the 2 o'clock position). The belt goes around the gold colored motor pulley and the rim on the underside of the platter only. *Make certain the belt rides in the groove of the motor pulley.* https://blog.audio-technica.com/audio-solutions-question-of-the-week-why-is-my-at-lp60-turntable-not-spinning/ If the belt is off the motor pulley, it is probably off the platter as well. To reinstall the belt, remove the platter from the turntable by placing your thumb and a finger in the two circular holes near the spindle and gently lifting the platter straight up. Turn the platter over so the bottom is facing up, and reinstall the drive belt around the drive rim, which is located about an inch from the platter's outer edge. Make certain there are no twists in the belt. Reinstall the platter onto the turntable and rotate the platter by hand until one of the large rectangular openings is located at the upper left corner of the turntable (at about the 10 o'clock position). Look down into the opening and locate the gold colored motor pulley. Grab the belt from the inside edge of the rectangular opening and pull it over and around the pulley. Place the black felt mat back on the aluminum record platter. 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 The controls on the bottom of the turntable are not designed for user adjustments but rather Service Department portals. If possible, you may want to download an RPM calculator app for your smartphone. I recommend the following (that are free) Android - RPM Calculator iOS - RPM If the turntable is registering out of specifications, you may contact our Service Department at Service@atus.com for further support.

    Francisco

    Brent

    The permanently attached RCA cable is approximately 28 inches.

    I am just getting into vinyl for myself. I actually run an AV Consulting Business and I can handle everything from pre-amps to HI-Fi Stereo Set-Ups. I deal more with HD Tracks... 24 bit FLAC, DSD, WAV... I just got my first LP - Jack Johnson (Brushfire Fairytales). I am looking to the 60Model $99 and will invest more if I love it myself. I have read that an Elliptical Stylus is better for the Records and depth of sound. I want something more natural and not bright. Can the Model 60 be updated to a elliptical? And what is the budget/decent sound options? I am experimenting... Not investing yet.

    Bert

    Thank you for your inquiry. No, it cannot. Look at our AT-LP3. It is an upgrade with changeable cartridges.

    Rick

    I received the AT-LP60 as a gift, followed the assembly instructions, but not working. The instructions to install the drive belt is not clear. Please help.

    G

    Thank you for your inquiry. The link below will take you to an instructional video that should help you install the belt on the AT-LP60 series turntable. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsPx-ahh20Y

    What's the difference bewteen your BK products and non BK products? Eg. AT-LP60BK and AT-LP60

    EGU

    The "BK" code indicates the color black. Other than that, there is no difference.

    I lost my original 45 adapter. What adapters are compatible or where can I get a replacement?

    Krayzar

    Thank you for your inquiry. You may contact our Parts Department at Parts@atus.com or call (330) 686-2600 ext 5002. to inquire about a replacement if you are located in the US.

    Kaylee

    Can the AT-LP60, with a built-in preamp, connected to powered speakers, also be connected to a headphone amplifier? Of is there some other way to connect headphones? Can you help me understand how to do this, if it's possible?

    Jason

    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes we actually recommend using a headphone amplifier when listening to our turntables with headphones. You wont be able to have both the headphones and powered speakers connected at the same time since there is only one RCA cable coming out of the turntable to connect with. https://blog.audio-technica.com/audio-solutions-question-of-the-week-can-i-use-headphones-to-listen-directly-to-my-audio-technica-turntable/

    Is this an MM or MC turntable?

    Rob

    Thank you for your inquiry. The cartridge on this turntable is a moving magnet cartridge.
