    Belt missing

    My girlfriend bought his for me as my first record player and the belt is missing so I can't even use it. I felt stupid for couple hours trying to figure out why it wasn't working. Had to watch a YouTube video to figure out I don't even have the belt.

    2.5 years and still playing my vinyl!!!!!!!!

    5

    I have had my LP60 for 2.5 years and it still works. I play my albums daily for at least an hour, longer on weekends and it still works as if it was new and out of the box. I have a pair of Bose computer speakers hooked up and the music sounds excellent. I have been neglect in not replacing the stylus (still plays great) and that's why I am on the Audio-technica site...to order a replacement stylus. When this record player finally quits on me I will replace it with another LP60. I also love that the tone arm automatically returns at the end of the album!!!!

    Do not waste your time

    The turntable is vunerable to spinning at a rate to fast pitching all your music too high. this problem started early into owning the record player and only got worse and worse with time. There are no solutions to fixing it than getting a new turntable and seems to be a common problem while searching online.

    Awesome sound quality for the price!

    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.

    For what this is, AT has done a really good job with design

    3

    First things first -- the users in these reviews claiming that they were getting bad sound and/or distortion most likely had the phono preamp switch set incorrectly. If you are plugging into an input marked "phono" on your receiver, make sure the switch on the back of the unit is set to "phono" as well. If everything is set up correctly, the unit will sound as it should. My advice would be to ignore those reviews. I am a turntable repair person, so I have a different perspective than most users. For the purpose of performing its function relatively well and meeting a price point, the AT-LP60 is a remarkable feat of industrial engineering. It's certainly not a "great" turntable performance-wise and it's made of plastic and thin metal and has an inexpensive motor, so I would not expect these to last a long time. But as a starter deck, one could do a lot worse. I've had a few come through the shop. One had an issue with the auto-stop linkage sticking and creating skipping halfway through a side. This was fixed by cleaning and re-setting the linkage. I had another one that had a frozen platter bearing. That would be a QC issue from the factory. As luck would have it, I had a compatible bearing assembly and was able to repair it for the customer. I've had several with pitch issues, but these are easily remedied by adjusting the controls with a jeweler's screwdriver and a strobe disc. I would contrast this with some other cheaper models I've seen, including the Sony PS-LX250 and the mechanisms that are in the Crosleys and all of their clones. Those are far inferior to the AT-LP60 in terms of reliability. When those come in, they typically can't be fixed because something in the motor or the circuitry has died. The AT-LP60 is a safe bet for now, and that's due to good design principles.

    Best record player, BEST customer service.

    I got this player for my birthday years ago and I still love it and used it daily. The power cord was lost in a move and I was devastated. I contacted customer service and before the morning was up they'd fixed the problem. I could honestly cry I'm so happy to have my favorite thing back!! So happy we chose AT and I recommend them to everyone.

    Not so good.

    I got this for remastering 78's and radio transcriptions. I returned mine to Audio Technica for service. The turn table platter has a slight rumble / chattering sound when running. Also their is no ground, so there was a slight 60 hz. hum. They claim there were no issues. It came back to me the same. Also the bearings and pivot area of the tone-arm was sloppy, and I don't recall having that when I sent it to AT service. I know what I am doing and have been setting up turntables and remastering old records since the laste 60's on tape and now digital. I have two Technics turntables that are rock solid players. This was an expensive science project. Almost $300 for the turntable and $80 to ship to AT. I gave the turntable to a not for profit radio station, as the slight noise won't be heard on FM. I found a software trick to record 78's at 45 rpm. Also make sure you have the proper stylus as regular microgroove stylus won't track.

    Very good turntable for the price

    I found this turntable to be great for the price. Easy to set up. I still haven't connected it to my computer, to import my music into iTunes. So I don't know how easy or well that works. I did find that I shouldn't have ever gotten rid of my old turntable. Listening to my vinyl records again, is way better then the CD's or MP3/4's of today. The only complaint that I have with this turntable, is the clip to secure the tone arm. It is made very cheaply. It is made of plastic and is hard to release. It snapped right off, even though I was careful. I did read about this problem before I bought this, so I knew to be careful, but to no avail. Audio-Technica needs to upgrade this issue.

    Not highly recommended for an "audiophile."

    I have several Technics turntables from my broadcast days and thought as the AT looks like a "clone" of my SL1200 M3D I get one for 78's. What I noticed is that when it start it sound like a rim drive turntable. There is a slight mechanical rumble when it starts and plays. With recordings the rumble doesn't register, but I hear it never the less. I took the platter off and noticed the spindles moves randomly and make the same slight rumbling. So for under $300 its okay, but other than for 78's I use the ancient SL1200 M3D's for remastering LP's and 45's.

    I just bought a LP60, but then read that it is not compatible with Windows 10.. How do I solve this problem without exchanging it for another brand?

    The AT-LP60-USB may be used with Windows 10. You may find helpful information here: https://blog.audio-technica.com/audio-solutions-question-of-the-week-how-do-i-record-music-from-my-a-t-usb-turntable-on-to-my-computer/

    What powered speakers are best for this turntable and where can they be purchased

    John

    Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at audio-solutions@atus.com for assistance with this.

    Brent

    Hi, I tried connecting several of my earphones to the turntable through adapter cable. When they are partially plugged in I can hear full sound from the left earphone, and when completely plugged in I can only hear unclear sound (could barely hear vocal of a song, for example). Connecting to a stereo speaker works fine. I replaced the cable from your Parts Department but still have the issue. How should I solve this?Thank you!

    Does this turntable have a cue lever for safely raising the tone arm while skipping a track?

    Tingman

    Thank you for your inquiry. It has a cue button that will raise or lower the tone arm.

    What model styli came with the turntable? I would like to get the same one. Also, how do I remove the old one and install the new one. Thank you

    Musicman

    You may purchase the ATN3600L stylus and may find additional information on changing out the stylus here: https://blog.audio-technica.com/audio-solutions-question-week-change-stylus-lp60-lp60-usb-turntable/

    So my needle broke on this turntable and I'm looking to get a new needle so it can work again. I was wondering if it's possible to buy a needle that's capable of scratching/scrubbing and that's compatible with this record player. What're the options to buy a new needle and it is it possible to be able to scratch/scrub with a certain needle that I'm able to purchase. Thanks!

    Ecohen43

    Thank you for your inquiry. The only compatible stylus is the ATN3600L

    Rick

    Can you change the stylus on this turntable? I was thinking of upgrading to a better needle but wasn't sure it was possible with this model. Would it be better to just upgrade to a higher tier turntable?

    Chotchy

    Thank you for your inquiry. The only stylus replacement available for our AT-LP60 turntables is the original stylus model ATN3600L. If you would like to upgrade to a better stylus, then it would be best to upgrade to a different turntable. All of our other model turntables are capable of upgrading the cartridge and stylus if desired: https://www.audio-technica.com/cgi-bin/product_search/turntables/turntables.pl?lang=eng

    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.

    nicebo

    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.
