  • Overview

    The AT-LP3 fully automatic belt-drive turntable lets you take your analog listening experience to the next level with advanced features not typically found on automatic turntables. The balanced straight tone arm comes with a 1/2" mount universal headshell and AT91R Dual Moving Magnet phono cartridge, giving you excellent high-fidelity performance, plus the option to use other moving magnet or moving coil cartridges of your choosing.

    A hydraulically damped lift control allows the stylus to be precisely and safely lowered and raised at any point on a record. Yet the turntable also offers fully automatic operation, so you can simply press the Start button to begin play and the Stop button to lift and return the tone arm and shut off the turntable (the stop function occurs automatically when a record has played all the way through).

    The AT-LP3 is constructed of anti-vibration damping materials that limits low-frequency feedback. Resonance is further reduced by the turntable’s die-cast aluminum platter and accompanying 4 mm rubber damping mat. Equipped to play both 33-1/3 and 45 RPM records, the AT-LP3 features a built-in switchable phono preamp and an attached dual RCA output cable that enable it be connected to a home stereo, powered speakers and other components whether they have a dedicated turntable input or not.

    Available in black (AT-LP3BK) and white (AT-LP3WH).

    The perfect turntable for performance and capability


    Rarely does a complete turntable come along like this one. Please ignore foolish/ridiculous comments like a remote control (no good TT has it). The arm is quite capable to perform well with most any quality cartridge (The Aud.Tech. AT7V) is a highly recommend for this turntable for performance and price. Never rate a TT based on supplied cartridges because they are bad at best. If you can afford a separate preamp, they give you a moving magnet and moving coil as part of the turntable. The automatic features are flawless although I like to cue the start of a record. You may work and never worry about the stylus dragging at the end of a record because it rejects to the arm at the end.
