    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

    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!!!!

  • Q & A

    Why is the speed running fast on both 331/3 and 45rpm? I ordered a set of jewelry screw drivers. Hopefully it will solve this problem. If not, to the garbage it goes. Any suggestions?

    I have just gotten a bunch of 78rpm records, how can I play this on a AT LP60

    Bryan

    You cannot as the LP60 model turntables do not play 78 RPM speeds.

    Brent

    What type of USB cable is it? I purchased the AT-LP60 but do not have the turntable to USB cable.

    Randy

    That is correct. For a digital USB connection, you will need the AT-LP60-USB model turntable. The cable is TYPE-B from the turntable to a TYPE-A into a computer.

    Brent

    Does it have a place to connect ground wire to preamp?

    MM

    No, the AT-LP60 models do not have a ground lug.

    Brent

    i got a record for christmas and im new to this turntable/record stuff so i want to make sure i get a good turntable. someone on instagram recommend this to me and i was wondering if it was a good starter turntable. also, how much tracking force does the needle have? and if you have anything else that would be good for a noob in turntables like me, that would be greatly appreciated :)

    Hi there. I've had my AT-LP60 for over a year now, and it's been great. Yesterday I went to put on a record and it's barely generating any sound. It comes out faint and super-scratchy. I took off the stylus and reattached it, but no dice. What could be the problem?

    I have some old non powered speakers I want to use with this - would they be compatible or no?

    Kyle

    You would need a power amplifier to power the speakers.

    Hello. I have a Q similar to the previous one. But I already bought this product. And I reside in Europe so the shape of the socket and the power need is different. It says here in specifications 120V AC, 60 Hz, 3W and our standard sockets are 220V. So as I understand I would need a voltage downgrader. I found such a thing here but in doubt whether its the needed one. It says that the input on it can be 220V and fifty Hz (plus\minus 10 Hz) output is 110 to 120 V and fifty W What do you guys think?

    I would like to use my LP60 in Europe. Is this product dual voltage? Meaning if I just use a converter to adjust the shape of the outlet would it work? Or do I need an adapter to adjust the voltage and amper?

    No it does not. You may contact the European Audio-Technica offices for further assistance. http://www.audio-technica.com/world_map/
