    Excellent quality entry-level turntable.

    5

    Overall a great entry-level turntable at a great price. I have not used the USB connection 2 convert my LPs to MP3s since most of this music is already available as MP3 content at higher quality. But it is a nice feature to have on the turntable anyway. I've had this turntable for approximately one year. I've had no problems and the sound quality is excellent.unfortunately there is no locking mechanism for the tone arm to hold it in place. So if you is the turntable, it would be wise to use a twist tie to prevent the tone arm from getting damaged. Also, the felt platter cover oftentimes lifts up when you are removing a record or flipping it to the b side. This can become quite aggravating at times. I would have much preferred a heavier rubber platter cover. But overall, I would definitely give this turntable 5 stars.

    This turntable was purchased to replace an old analog Audio-Technica turntable. I use the USB input to digitize old vinyl LPs. It works great with Audacity (free) but there is a bit of a learning curve if you're not familiar with the program. There are other commercial programs that will work too. I'm totally satisfied with my purchase.

  • Q & A

    Is this machine three speed?

    john

    No, the AT-LP60 models are 33 1/3 and 45 RPM speeds.

    We have the Audio-Technica AT-LP60-USB record player connected to our Sonos Play:5 using the line in cable from the back of the record player to the back of the Sonos Play:5. When we try to play the record, it's not playing in stereo. We've checked and confirmed that the record player is set to play in line, not in phono. I noticed in the manual that it says that if we're connecting to a stereo system that we need to turn the turntable platter clockwise 10 times. Is this something that we need to do to get it to play in stereo with the Sonos or do you have other recommendations on why it's not playing the full sound of the record?

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

    Brent

    does this product work properly also in 50Hz?

    Brent

    Can the AT-LP60K-USB be connected to Sony DVD Home Theater System DAV-HDX275? The connections on the rear are R - Audio In - L next to the TV/Video?

    DJ

    You may connect the AT-LP60-USB turntable to any LINE level analog inputs. You may confirm with your home theater manufacturer.

    Brent

    Is the stylus arm adjustable on this model - for tracking and balance etc. ? some new albums skip.

    John G.

    As the cartridge is fixed and not user interchangeable, the tracking force is preset and not user adjustable. Please contact our Parts Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5002 or at parts@atus.com for an AT-LP60 headshell weight which may be added to use for particular albums that are skipping due to over dynamic mastering.

    Brent

    Do I need a speaker with this or can I connect to jawbone blue tooth speaker?

    C H

    You may connect to any LINE level input such as an AUX input.

    Brent

    Is there an automatic arm return when the record is finished playing?

    Cwhahn07

    Yes, the AT-LP60-USB is a fully automatic turntable.

    Brent

    My receiver has both a line audio input and a USB input. So it seems I would be able to utilize this turntable as either analog or digital sound. Vinyl records are popular again apparently for their hi fidelity vs digital CD sound. What input is recommended to hear this hi-fidelity sound? Will the USB input provide this sound or should I use the analog RCA connection?

    Snave

    The USB connection is designed to be used with computers and may or may not work with your stereo receiver so I would recommend using the analog connection.

    Brent

    What is the length of the (presumably) attached set of stereo RCA cables leading directly out of the back of the turntable?

    ebinrock

    Thank you for your inquiry. The cable is 28 inches long.

    If I play a record in full manual mode on this turntable, will it automatically stop and pick up and return the tone arm at the end of one side, or just stay there until I manually pick it up? (I would need it to do the latter to play the inner groove at the end of The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper album!)

    ebinrock70

    Thank you for your inquiry. It is automatic. It will pick up at the end of the record.
