    TWICE VIP AWARD 2016 WINNER
    Cut the cord, keep the vinyl. The AT-LP60-BT gives you all the great features of our popular AT-LP60 fully automatic belt-drive stereo turntable but with the added convenience of Bluetooth® wireless connectivity. So you can set up your turntable in one room and listen to it in another without having to run a bunch of cables. Up to eight different pairs of speakers, headphones or other devices that utilize Bluetooth® wireless technology can be stored in the AT-LP60-BT’s memory. Once stored, a simple push of the turntable’s Function button is all that is required to connect the turntable to your chosen wireless device.

    The AT-LP60-BT also gives you the option of operating it just like a regular turntable with a traditional wired connection. Either way – wired or wireless – you get outstanding audio with the ease of automatic operation: just push the Start button to begin playing a record, 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). A tone arm Lift button is also included to let you raise and lower the tone arm without stopping the turntable.

    Audio-Technica has been a leader in phono cartridge design for more than 50 years, and that expertise shows in the AT-LP60-BT’s Dual Magnet™ cartridge with replaceable stylus. The cartridge is integrated into the tone arm for assured performance and ease of setup.

    The AT-LP60-BT plays both 33-1/3 and 45 RPM records and comes with a 45 RPM adapter, a dual RCA output cable (for wired connection) and a removable hinged dust cover. The turntable is available in black (AT-LP60BK-BT) and white (AT-LP60WH-BT).

    Good sounding inexpensive turntable

    5

    Actually, for the price, this thing sounds great. Purchased it for my autistic son who has a fascination with retro technologies, so this was a way to combine the old with the new. I paired it up with Bose Soundsport headphones, Bose QC35s, and a pair of EcoBoulders, and it plays very well with all of them with clear sound, no skips or jumps. And through the Boulders it is LOUD. So far I'm super happy with it. I've noticed a bunch of reviewers complain about the Bluetooth not working - which I originally had a lot of trouble with myself until I realized that the turntable has no concept of "Pause", so sometimes I'd start the turntable, no sound would come out, then I'd hit play/pause on my speakers and viola.. If the turntable was more expensive than it is, I might complain about that, but it's really not a problem. First albums played by my son, Led Zeppelin III and Deep Purple Machinehead 😀.

    FANTASTIC UNIT!!!

    I've been using this bluetooth turntable going on 2 years now. Never had any issues with connecting to any of my bt speakers. The controls are very basic and extremely easy to use. I've got it inside the top drawer of an armoire. Even with the drawer closed, no signal issues. And even use the harman/kardon on the patio table in the back yard. All you need for this unit to function at top performance is a BRAIN!!

    Great entry level turntable!

    We gave this turntable to our son this past Christmas, so we haven't had it for an extended period of time. That said, this is a nice entry level turntable. Bluetooth was seamless (once I watched the video instruction). We paired it up with Edifier Bluetooth speakers. The sound is great, this system is great.

    Bluetooth not compatible with all speaker devices.Some speakers require software upgrade before it works with the turntable. Very frustrating. Also, the bluetooth drops from time-to-time if another bluetooth device is in the vicinity

    Beware of Bluetooth incompatibility!!

    3

    I had purchased this device to pair with my Onkyo TX-8160 receiver but although it showed it paired, no sound was forthcoming! In searching the Audio-Technica site I found numerous individuals had the same issue. I plugged in a BTunes Bluetooth transmitter into the audio out from the turntable and that not only paired but offered sound! Moral of the story is it turns out there are three flavors of Bluetooth and they are not necessarily compatible!

  • Q & A

    I have a Sonos speaker. Can I connect the record player to that (or any other bluetooth) speaker?

    Christopher

    It is my understanding the Sonos is not a Bluetooth wireless signal but rather their own proprietary 2.4GHz wireless signal. You may connect the turntable to compatible Bluetooth speakers. Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at audio-solutions@atus.com for additional assistance with this.

    How do I know when the stylus needs replacing?

    Curious

    It is recommend to change the stylus after roughly 400-1000 hours of use. That is a pretty wide range that varies on the condition and cleanliness of the records. I recommend changing when you hear a reduced quality in the higher frequencies.

    Brent

    I have the Bluetooth connected up OK and it pairs right away when starting but when playing a record the sound fades in and out at a consistent rate. Almost like when the turntable reaches a certain spot the sound fades. Any suggestions?

    I received this for Christmas this year. I have tried 3 speakers to connect to it and it doesn't pair to anything. I've heard this is a problem with this turntable. Do you have any suggestions on how to fix this,?

    MetalVinyl

    Thanks for the inquiry and contacting Audio-Technica U.S., Inc (ATUS.) We appreciate your patience for any delay in the response as we have been experiencing higher than normal volume of inquiries with the holiday season. Issues with connection of Bluetooth are often due to one of the following setup issues: 1. The turntable is not actually put into pair mode properly. http://blog.audio-technica.com/audio-solutions-question-of-the-week-how-do-i-connect-the-at-lp60-bt-wireless-turntable-to-headphones-and-other-devices-that-utilize-bluetooth-wireless-technology/ Please note that we have observed that with some blue tooth speakers you must make sure there are no other Bluetooth devices operating in close proximity. These days that could be a number of things such as smart phone, headphones, TV's and even refrigerators and other appliances. It seems these devices can cause some interference or confusion in the pairing process. Either turn these devices off or take the turntable and speaker to another room, free of blue tooth transmission and make the initial pair. Once paired, you should be able to resume normal activity with your devices. If you are still having an issue pairing, make certain there are no other 2.4GHz frequency equipment in close proximity (ie Bluetooth devices, wireless router, etc.) and additionally clear the other pairs of the speaker. (refer to the speaker manufacture on their process on doing so.) 2. If the turntable does not show a SOLID BLUE LIGHT, the turntable is not paired and the issue may be within the speaker and some Bluetooth speakers may not pair. Usually Bluetooth speakers make some type of sound when they pair. Some make a different noise when they don't pair. For troubleshooting purposes, pair the speaker to a different device such as a smartphone. If the two sounds the speaker make are different, the speaker may not accept the pair. 3. If the turntable shows a SOLID BLUE LIGHT, the turntable is paired to the speaker. Often, Bluetooth speakers have a multi-function button used to play/pause music or pickup and hang-up phone calls. Try pressing that button on the speaker and will sometimes mute the music playing through the speaker. You may confirm this function with your speaker manufacturer. Please note that we are finding an incompatibility with some Bluetooth speakers. We have engineers looking into it. I recommend that you contact your place of purchase and either return the turntable for a refund (per the dealers policy) or swap the speaker for another brand and model. Below is a list of speakers that we have successfully used. Of course there are many others as well, these are just some that we have verified.
