Rediscover Vinyl 

Whether you’re looking to dust off an old record collection or experience the rich sound of vinyl for the first time, the Audio-Technica AT-LP60 Fully Automatic Belt-Drive Stereo Turntable delivers impressive performance for an ultralow price.  This full featured turntable is designed with ease of use in mind, eliminating the need for expensive external equipment and making it possible for anyone to join the vinyl revolution. 

Built to Perform

The AT-LP60 delivers solid construction and an audiophile-grade experience with a fully automatic high-quality belt-drive system and an anti-resonance die-cast aluminum platter.  In addition, a removable clear cover will ensure your records remain protected and dust free during playback. 

Easy Setup and Maintenance

Setting up the AT-LP60 is a breeze.  Simply attach the metal platter and motor belt, lay down the included record mat, and hookup the turntable to a source or powered speakers.  Since its Integral Dual Magnet phono cartridge is pre-installed, all you need to do is remove a protective cover and the cartridge is ready for use.  The cartridge’s diamond stylus can be replaced after 400 hours of playback time, so you’ll never have to worry about diminished sound quality.  

Connect Directly to Powered Speakers

Because he AT-LP60 has an internal pre-amplifier, it can plug directly into powered speakers, a stereo receiver, a computer, a portable music player, or any other playback source that accepts an RCA or 3.5mm mini-plug connector.  That means there’s no need for a standalone phono amplifier or an expensive AV receiver.  If you own a phono-ready receiver, simply flip a switch to bypass the AT-LP60’s pre-amp and let your receiver take care of the rest! 

Automatic Playback

Listening to records has never been easier.  Just select a playback speed and record size, press start, and watch the tonearm automatically move into position to play the first song.  When the record finishes, the tonearm will return to its resting place and the platter will stop spinning.  You can even stop or pause songs during playback. Use the included 45 adapter disc to accommodate the larger hole found on most 7 inch records. 

Sized Just Right

With a square footprint measuring roughly 14 inches across and 14 inches deep, the AT-LP60 is more compact than typical turntables. This gives it placement flexibility that you’re sure to appreciate. 

Pedigree You Can Trust

Audio-Technica has been involved with vinyl playback for nearly five decades, having made its first commercially available cartridge in 1962.  It’s since been an industry innovator devoted to making high-grade audio equipment.  Audio-Technica knows how to get great sound from vinyl records.

Blow me...after all those years the Aiwa PX-E860 was basically slagged off by the audiophile community, now call it something else and ...it's great. This IS the same design... 'a more compact size', the white stylus holder, same front panels and buttons, even down to having no tone arm holder.... everything ! As an owner of the original Aiwa mentioned, I agree it a great piece of well priced kit. Now give the Aiwa some credit !

The Audio Technica AT-LP60 plays records with a precision and care that no other turntable at this price has to offer. The sound quality is stellar for home listening. The stylus that comes with the turntable picks up a great range of frequencies. This is a purchase that I am more than satisfied with. My only complaint is that the belt does not seem durable. Surprisingly though, this cheap belt rotates the platter with precision. I compliment the precision because the precision on a Jensen wooden turntable that I purchased was sub-par and it had a similar belt. This turntable was definitely an incredible upgrade.

An excellent value, comparable to more costly units.
Although the dust cover is a trifle thin, it is easily removeable. I think the rest of the AT-LP60 turntable is super! I did some web and in-person research before selecting the Audio-Technica and was impressed that the configuration of the controls and functions are the same as some units costing $40-$60 more. I was not sure what to expect at this price point.

I have conected this turntable to an older Sony stereo receiver. Set up was quite easy, instructions concise, and I was immediatley impressed with the quality of the sould output. Overall, I would say that this is an excellent value and I am very pleased with my purchase.

Great Product!
I have owned this unit for a few years with on and off use. I first had it connected to an all-in-one stereo in a box unit by using the provided preamp feature. It sounded satisfactory using that limited system. I now have it connected to a late 1960's RCA Victor tube amplified HiFi and it sounds really great. I still think it is limited only by the amplification of the HiFi which is a great compliment to the turntable.

I listen to the same records on my family member's much more expensive NAD system and we both agree this Audio Technica sounds about as clear.

I accidentally damaged the stylus but replacements are reasonably priced and easily available.

The top scratches very easily but a turntable should be handled with care anyway, so this is not of much concern. I wish there was some type of vibration isolation built in, but for the price I really can't complain. I just don't stomp my feet when I walk past it.

Overall this is a great unit and I recommend it to anyone looking to either get into the hobby for the first time, or get back into it after a hiatus. Stop shopping around and get this, you won't be disappointed.

What a surprise!
I have owned Dual 1218and Dual 1019 turntables since the 70's. They were both highly rated turntables that were very expensive. In the 80's and on I listened to CD's , yet still owned over 1,200 record albums. I decided to bring my records out of storage and listen to them again. My 1219 was stolen and my 1019 was not repairable. I began shopping for a new turntable in the $250-$500 range. While shopping I ran upon this turntable and decided to purchase it until I found a good turntable. Guess what? I'm keeping this as my main turntable. It sounds as good or better then my old turntables! It is a great sounding unit. Very balanced in the frequencies and makes no noise or wow and flutter of its own!

I bought this turntable to replace a Realistic LAB-330 I bought about 25 years ago. I could not be happier! This turntable is fully automatic and the sound reproduction is nothing less than great. I don't see why anyone would spend $100's of dollars on more expensive units when the AT-LP60 does it all for much,much less. A real winner as far as I am concerned>

Proves analog is at least as good as digital
I never thought I'd say it but many of my vinyls sound better than my CDs of the same albums.

I bought this for my wife for Christmas 2011 since she is business manager for a number of indie bands and they send her copies of their albums on vinyl. To test it and come up with a simple workflow to get them onto her laptop/iPod, I tried it with my old LPs that had sat for nearly 20 years! Here's how:

I connected the line output to a Presonus FireStudio audio interface and recorded the audio with Presonus Studio 1 Pro. Listening through my near-field monitors, keyboard amps and a variety of headphones, I was a tad disappointed when comparing against the CD recording of the same material. In particular, it sounded a bit nasally. BUT - the audio software lets me adjust the EQ. All it needed was a reduction in the mid range (1 to 2kHz) and a slight boost in the high range. The result? Remarkable. The results sound much better than the CD. The bass is much warmer and really drives the rhythm of the classic rock material. The 4 rating for audio quality is just because the out-of-box sound does this product something of a disservice.

Of course, the downside of LPs is the pops and clicks. I tried #then bought) a program called ClickRepair that is astonishing. Once "declicked", I convert tracks to high quality MP3s, add cover art and that's it.

Best thing - I don't have to buy CDs of my old LPs. Given the terrible "fad" of digitally remastering CDs, it's great news. For LPs I no longer have but recorded to cassette, I will buy used LPs to get the artwork and sound quality.

Love it.

This unit sounds very very good. I do not seem to hear any popping or other abstract noise using the RCA connections to my Audiophile stereo. I am not sure if there is some software or firmware that if filtering the sound but it seems to be. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a simple easy to use turntable. Only thing I would add is that it seems a little flat IMO.
