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 USB Fully Automatic Belt-Driven 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. Even connect to your PC via the USB output for a more versatile listening experience.
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 the AT-LP60 USB 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!
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, which is unusual for an analog stereo turntable.
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.

Customer Reviews for AudioTechnica AT-LP60-USB Fully Automatic Belt-Drive USB & Analog Stereo Turntable (Black)
Everything from singles and cheaply made records to 180gram records all work and sound great!
My recent favorites inlcuding Daft Punk sound absolutely incredible.
This record player is easy to use, extremely reliable and sounds excellent.
I highly recommend it.
It's super easy to use this on your PC/Mac (even Linux :-D). Plugs in via USB, appears in Audacity, and BAM, mp3 (or wav or FLAC or w/e) of your vinyl.
The only problem was that the mp3 file was a little quiet, but that was probably my Audacity settings. Though with MP3Gain, I was able to fix the mp3. I'll need to experiment with the settings to get the right ones.
Connected to my receiver (that has a phono input), it sounds amazing!
I highly recommend this record player. It's inexpensive, works, sounds great, and looks great!
Note: This can only play 33's and 45's, not 78's.
The sound quality is great and very easy to use, just push the button and it starts!
