    I set out to get a turntable specifically to just play my records which had been in boxes for years. It was time to bring them out...just because! I have all my music on CD and other digital media but that is not the point. This turntable was reasonably priced as I did not want to spend $400.00 on a turntable! so I went into my local Audio store and saw this and thought to myself "Hey!". So I bought it, took it home and had it set up and playing...an original Beatle record in no time. Having the option to put my vinyl to digital is a bonus. As for sound quality...good as any! Besides, living in a condo doesn't give much opportunity to crank it to 11! Good product.

        I just bought brand new in the box the usb version of the AT-LP60. Looks like an older model. Box says 2009. Anyway it was easy to set up. All of 10 or 15 minutes. That was taking my time too. Including unpacking.
        The thing I like is its fully automatic.
        Its belt driven. A preference of mine.
        It has a pre-amp. So i hooked it up to a set of 72 watt powered shelf speakers.
        Fantastic full rich sound for the price. Im guessing (Have never owned one so im using common sense here) the sound quality is not enough of a difference to justify spending another $150 on the AT-LP120. I think the biggest difference is the motor and weight. They are both great turntables Im sure....for my money Im sticking with the belt driven version.

            I've gotten back into listening to my Vinyl Records again I wanted to convert all my old Vinyls into WAV.

            I am not disappointed in any manner with this turntable. I just plugged the USB into my Mac., (made sure to pick the correct input in the Audio Recording program), hit record on the program, hit start on the Turntable and now I have full uncompressed WAV. recordings of my 80's Vinyls.

            Any newbie to recording to Vinyl's should purchase this Turntable, there is not better option at this price range. Any better option will cost much much more along with the fact that you may need a Audio Interface, Pre-amp and even a mixing board just to record digital copies of your LP's.

            The manual written for XP, Vista, and Windows 7, the setup different for Windows 10 Pro, I sent some messages over the internet to the company, where I bought it, and some Geek sites. I did get an updated instructions, still took 2 hours and some knowledge of my own to do my 1st music recording. The other wise very good

This is a turntable I would buy again if this one were to die (shudder). Now if they would make a cassette deck to go with it...

                              I bought this as my first record player. I have a fairly large collection with old scratched up records from Vera Lynn and Nat King Cole, through the 60's through to 2014!

                              Everything from singles and cheaply made records to 180gram records all work and sound great!

                              My recent favorites inlcuding Daft Punk sound absolutely incredible.

                              This record player is easy to use, extremely reliable and sounds excellent.

                              I highly recommend it.

                                  My PC laptop does not have a DVD/CD player. Can I download the software? I only found manuals to download.

                                • Q:

                                  If I connect the AT-LP60-USB directly to my [iMac] via USB, do I still need to connect it to the external powered speakers via the RCA cable, or can I leave those off? I assume that if I do not use the RCA cable, I will still hear the music through the computer speakers, but only if I'm using software that allows monitoring. Is this correct?
                                  If I do connect the LP60 to the speakers, via the RCA cable, will I hear the music, without running software (Audacity or other)? Thanks.

                                    Thank you for your inquiry. You may listen through your iMac speakers as you record. You may use external powered speakers to listen without using the Audacity.

                                  The software guide, and I am assuming the software, shows how to set up and use with Windows Vista, XP and 7, but I have Windows 10. Do I need new software and instructions so I can use the USB feature? If so how do I get it? Or will what I have work?
