Rated 1 out of 5 by from Belt missing My girlfriend bought his for me as my first record player and the belt is missing so I can't even use it. I felt stupid for couple hours trying to figure out why it wasn't working. Had to watch a YouTube video to figure out I don't even have the belt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2.5 years and still playing my vinyl!!!!!!!! I have had my LP60 for 2.5 years and it still works. I play my albums daily for at least an hour, longer on weekends and it still works as if it was new and out of the box. I have a pair of Bose computer speakers hooked up and the music sounds excellent. I have been neglect in not replacing the stylus (still plays great) and that's why I am on the Audio-technica site...to order a replacement stylus. When this record player finally quits on me I will replace it with another LP60. I also love that the tone arm automatically returns at the end of the album!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect turntable for beginners Switched from a Crosley (which I hated for its terrible sound) to this turntable and couldn't be happier. Setup was super easy and my records sound great on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome turntable, very reliable so far!! This is an awesome turntable so far, bought it to replace an older one that wasn't worth repairing. Puts out great sound, and is quite easy to use. Looks stylish too! Thanks Audio Technica

Rated 3 out of 5 by from For what this is, AT has done a really good job with design First things first -- the users in these reviews claiming that they were getting bad sound and/or distortion most likely had the phono preamp switch set incorrectly. If you are plugging into an input marked "phono" on your receiver, make sure the switch on the back of the unit is set to "phono" as well. If everything is set up correctly, the unit will sound as it should. My advice would be to ignore those reviews. I am a turntable repair person, so I have a different perspective than most users. For the purpose of performing its function relatively well and meeting a price point, the AT-LP60 is a remarkable feat of industrial engineering. It's certainly not a "great" turntable performance-wise and it's made of plastic and thin metal and has an inexpensive motor, so I would not expect these to last a long time. But as a starter deck, one could do a lot worse. I've had a few come through the shop. One had an issue with the auto-stop linkage sticking and creating skipping halfway through a side. This was fixed by cleaning and re-setting the linkage. I had another one that had a frozen platter bearing. That would be a QC issue from the factory. As luck would have it, I had a compatible bearing assembly and was able to repair it for the customer. I've had several with pitch issues, but these are easily remedied by adjusting the controls with a jeweler's screwdriver and a strobe disc. I would contrast this with some other cheaper models I've seen, including the Sony PS-LX250 and the mechanisms that are in the Crosleys and all of their clones. Those are far inferior to the AT-LP60 in terms of reliability. When those come in, they typically can't be fixed because something in the motor or the circuitry has died. The AT-LP60 is a safe bet for now, and that's due to good design principles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NO Way! Pretty simple. A little too expensive in comparison to other players. Not much variety of options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Like It This is a great starter turntable. I like the automatic arm function. It takes the guesswork out of putting the needle down on the right place to start the record. I like that it has the built-in dust cover that is closable during operation. It'll stay a part of my audio equipment for a long time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Best entry level turntable Needed an upgrade, the briefcase ones have built in speakers and a heavy arm, move up and down damaging vinyls. This turntable is better if you have like $30 more bucks, provided you have non Bluetooth speakers. Better quality and moves the arm so you don't have to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality at a reasonable price! 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a cheap yet high-fidelity turntable I got this for christmas one year expecting a low-fidelity yet portable turntable. To my surprise it was great especially with the right equipment with my setup. I would reccomend this to college students because of the affordability and convenience.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not buy this item again I bought this turntable about 12 - 16 months ago. I take very good care of my audio equipment and my vinyls. After not having used it for a while (I play mostly CD's) I place a record on it and the table did not turn. I took off the wheel covers and saw that the rubber band which would turn the platter was off... not in place. I replaced it carefully but discovered it was not the band... there was no power to turn the platter no matter how often I tried. I'm sure I had it on correctly. There was no other configuration that fit the size of the rubber band. Also, there were no diagrams to assure me I had done it correctly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High quality turntable for the price. This is a perfect turntable for casual listening, obviously I would not recommend it for scratching as it is a belt drive, but it does a very good job for listening and vinyl sampling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best turntable under $100 anywhere This record player has the best sound you'll ever find for this price. The money for other budget turntables tends to go into design rather than sound quality. This is quick to set up, easy to use and it sounds great with good speakers. Because of the limited features, it isn't very customizable. We tried to use a cork mat, but it's thicker than the standard mat provided with this turntable. Since we can't raise the tonearm to compensate, it resulted in a little bit of sound distortion. But if you're not looking to spend a lot of money on a turntable to start with, this can help restrain the urge to spend money on all the little upgrades. This is still hands down the best turntable in this price range.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Get what you pay for with this model I was so excited about my purchase initially, the sound quality was good for the price and it was easy to use. I've used this product about an hour per week over the 1year I've owned it and it is no longer working. It can't seem to get up to speed and the needle can't figure out the proper place to touch down on the record(that occurred 6months into use but could be rectified manually). I figure paying for repair and the hassle of returning it isn't worth it. Another product for the landfill.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from JUST LOOKING AT IT, MAKE ME FEEL RIPPED OFF With my MONEY. LIKE I wrote at the beginning , IT LOOKS LIKE I HAVE BEEN RIPPED OFF. its so thinnily made of plastic,that i cannot imagine ,even if you bought and put the greatest newest speakers on it, it would not sound good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An 80's fan I used to look for high quality audio equipment, but everything I found was not cheap. About a week ago found an ad with this awesome product and decided to give it a chance. It is great!! Now I have all of my vinyl records been played over and over :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst turntable I've ever purchased I try to use this turntable to play a wide variety of records. Rock to Jazz to Classical and everything in between. I play old vinyl and newer 180 gram stuff. The sound is always distorted for deep bass. And the skipping. DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU WANT TO PLAY NEW VINYL. You know what, just don't buy this. I contacted support and they sent me a weight for the cart to prevent skipping. They didn't send along any instructions on how to use it, but after I figured it out it made the distortion way worse. Look on the web. This thing is junk. I'm sorry I ever bought it and its too late to return now. Buyer beware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You don't have to sacrifice quality for price! I bought this about two years ago brand new from my local record store that also sells new record players. I'd done my research and I knew I wanted this turntable. I was starting to really get into vinyl and wanted to upgrade to a legit record player as opposed to my previous "novelty" one. I am so so happy with this turntable. It's extremely easy to use. I feel like it's fairly sturdy (I have several cats that I catch resting on it-dust cover closed-from time to time and it's never messed up!) I sometimes wish I would have gotten the model that is identical but includes a USB drive for those old records or records that don't come with a download code, because I do still collect music digitally as well, but I love this turntable. Great sound. Never had a problem with distortion or wonkiness. 10/10 recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality & Reliability Without Breaking The Bank Haven't had a turntable in many years, but wanted to get one so I could rekindle my love of vinyl. I did a lot of research online and this turntable kept popping up and always with good reviews. Being that I own other Audio-technica products that I have been very happy with, this became a no brainer. Well, once again they did not disappoint. The turntable is above and beyond what I was hoping to get out of a turntable at this price. It's ease of use and solid performance is fantastic. Like another reviewer stated, it would have been nice to have a tone arm lock, but that's definitely not a deal breaker. I hooked this turntable up to a pair of Audioengine A2+ powered speakers and it sounds great! So if your looking for an inexpensive, yet a great sounding, reliable turntable, look no further. I am very happy with this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AT-LP60 above average for entry level turntable the AT-LP60 is a very good entry level turntable and very well thought out with ease of use. if taken care of properly it should serve you well for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get more than what you paid for 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product! 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>

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Turntable. After sorting through my parents old vinyl collection I decided to purchase a turntable to listen to all their classic albums. After shopping around I discovered the AT-LP60. This unit offered everything I was looking for at an affordable price. The unit is very easy to operate, simply select the record size and speed, press the play button, and listen to the record come to life. The built in phono amp and included adapters make connecting it to your computer or speakers a snap. The arm lift button is useful for manually selecting a track. The only cons are very minor. The unit is all plastic, the dust cover scratches easy, and the tone arm is not adjustable. All in all the AT-LP60 is a great turntable for someone looking to get back into vinyl listening.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds very good 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.
