    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.

    Awesome turntable, very reliable so far!!


    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 would not buy this item again


    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

    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.


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


    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.


    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.


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


    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?


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


    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?


    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.


    Is this an MM or MC turntable?


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


    My son broke the needle (stylus) on his AT-LP60 and I need to get him a new one and I don't see an obvious place to get one on your website. Where can I buy one?


    Thank you for your inquiry. The ATN3600L is available at the below link.


    Hi, I really have no idea of turntables and vinyls. I wanted to know whish sices of Vinyl I can play with this turntable?


    Thank you for your inquiry. This will play both 7" and 12" vinyl at speeds of 45 RPM and 33.3 RPM.


    Does this have an adjustable tone arm?


    Thank you for your inquiry. I assume you are referring to adjusting the tracking force. No , it is set.


    Does this come with the needle cartridge?


    The AT-LP60 model turntables include a cartridge and a stylus.
