    Great Turntable, but loses as star for built in RCA cable.

    4

    I did a ton of research before choosing this turntable. It was between this and the ATP-LP1240. For the difference in price and for use at home, the AT-LP120 does everything I want. Set up is not difficult, but if you've never set up a tone arm with a counter weight you should watch the videos. It make a big difference getting the counter weight and anti-skate right. The settings for this are actually on the cardboard insert on the plate when you assemble the turntable, not in manual, so keep your eyes opened for that. The RCA cable is built in, instead of having normal RCA jacks. This means you have to use the cable that is pre-attached, which is not a big deal, unless you need a longer cable in which case you'll need double female adapters and an other cable. The bigger issue is that if anything thing happens to the cable you can't just swap it out with a new one. You will actually have to bring it in for repair. This is the issue that made the decision to buy this turntable or not more difficult. This was a really poor design decision for Audio-Technica. I cannot understand why anyone would thing this is a good idea.

    Antiskate issue

    5

    I had had this unit for about 2 years now and only just replaced the original stylus with a 2mm Red Ortofon and noticed the sound quality jump up by 100% Only real issue that I have is the antiskate.

    Antiskate issue on laptop.

    I have had this product for about 2 years now and recently changed the original stylus with a 2mm ortofon cart and the sound is so much better. The original Manufacture one was a little muffled but clear as day. Would love to buy this unit again ONLY if they were to fix the antiskate..

    Excellent High-end Entry Level Turntable

    5

    Product performs precisely as advertised. Set-up could not be easier. I did three things to optimize performance; the resulting sound produced is distantly and noticeably improved. 1.) replaced the factory supplied cartridge with an AT VM540 ML/H cartridge; 2.) replaced the factory supplied platter mat with a cork mat; 3.) replaced the factory supplied tone arm counter-weight with a heavier AT counter-weight. I also placed this turn table on to a Auralex ISO-Tone turn-table isolation platform. I am thoroughly pleased with the performance (and appearance) of this component and would recommend it to anyone looking for a high-end entry level turntable.

    I would buy this product again

    I've read about problems related anti-skate and wobbling but I found nether to be the case. I would have been happy to pay a little more if the Mfg. made the foot pads with some kind a screw type to make leveling easier.

    Great Basic Turntable

    5

    I plugged this turntable in though a basic Sony stereo receiver and cheap old speakers from an early 2000s 5 disc cd changer. It works very well. The sound is loud and clear and crisp. The turntable itself has had no issues, U've had it for over a year. It is easy to use, has never had any hiccups, haven't had to replace the needle at all yet but it does come with an extra. I decided to not buy the bluetooth one because of poor reviews. I bought a $10 portable bluetooth car receiver to plug into this turntable and am able to play music from my phone through the system. For my personal use, this suits me fine. Hopefully this helps someone out!

    AT-LP120-usb Love this turn table, takes me back to when music was real and not computer generated. The only issue I have is the platter wobbles a bit but does not affect the sound quality yet.... eventually will order a new platter and rule out the motor spindle ...great purchase

    Belt missing

    1

    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!!!!

    does switchable pre amp mean that you can turn the pre amp off?

    troy

    Yes it does. This allows you to connect to a PHONO input device and turn off the preamp inside the turntable or plug into any variety of LINE level input devices and use the turntable's internal RIAA preamp.

    Brent

    Is there an upgraded stylus offered for sale for this turntable?

    Dan

    No we do not. The replacement stylus for the AT-LP60 is the ATN3600L. This is the only stylus Audio-Technica manufactures that will work with the LP60. However, www.LPGear.com manufactures a few after-market styli that will work with the LP60. The styli are listed below: • ATN3600L (stock replacement stylus) • ATN3600DLX (LP Gear only) • ATN3600DLXI (LP Gear only) • ATN3600DLXSE (LP Gear only) • ATN3600DLXVL (LP Gear only) The cartridge is fixed and not interchangeable on the AT-LP60.

    Hello. I've purchased this record player and it plays all my records at a higher pitch. I know it's at the right speed setting, but it still plays fast. How can I fix this?

    My turntable pops extremely loudly sometimes, and every now and then, I see sparks coming off of the needle. Is there a way to fix this issue?

    Spring

    That sounds like static build up and you may use the following to clean and help reduce static build up. https://www.audio-technica.com/cms/accessories/1bf42a2a078c1ae1/index.html

    I need a replacement dust cover for one of these models that I just obtained in used, but good condition. Is there somewhere on your site that I could buy just the dust cover for this exact model??? Thanks so much!!

    Is it possible to adjust the weight of the tone arm on the LP60?

    Henry

    No. As the cartridge on the AT-LP60 is fixed, the tracking force is permanently set.

    Brent

    Does the turntable have adjustable feet for leveling?

    John

    No it does not.

    Brent

    Volume will not go higher very low how do you fix that
