Audio-Technica AT-LP60 Review
Audio-Technica AT-LP60 comes as fully-featured turnable that includes built-in phono preamplifier, pre-mounted phono cartridge, metal platter plus clear dust cover made of plastic.
You can hook line-level outputs of the turntable via the phono preamp built-in to integrated stereo amplifier, boombox, computer, Bluetooth speaker, AV receiver or other gadget possessing analog audio input. Majority of turntables by contrast offer preamp-level phono outputs only. These require high-end AV receiver or dedicated phono amplifier.
The AT-LP60 from Audio-Technica is superb for individuals who are just starting to use vinyl products. It is belt-drive turntable, which is the same system utilized by most audiophile turntables. Belt-drive implies motor pulley spins platter with rubber “belt”, implying it does not suit DJ usage, where back-cuing and fast start are required. The AT-LP60 is slightly more compact compared to majority of turntables, measuring 14 inches in square width by 3.8 inches in height and weighing 6.6 pounds.
Rear panel exhibits small switch which allows for selecting of either built-in phono preamplifier (thus output of line-level compatible universally with audio-in jacks) or external preamp of higher quality, which you may add later. Output of AT-LP60 turntable from Audio-Technica is however limited to 24-inch-long, hardwired cable which is terminated to some set of stereo RCA plugs. Look forward to getting an affordable RCA-to-3.5mm adapter that offers ability of plugging into almost any boombox, stereo system or portable speaker; practically anything featuring a line-port.
Put metal platter on turntable after assembling it up then reach through platter-top hole to pull rubber belt over motor pulley. Put felt mat on platter, slide off small plastic piece which protects cartridge and expect to begin playing records in comfort and style. The manufacturer has preset counterweight of tone-arm for your convenience, setting stylus tracking force. One felt-mat side covering metal platter carries “Audio Technica” spelling, although you may flip mat over and have good views of the plain black mat. The easy-to-understand, well-written owner’s manual assures of providing painless process of setup. Amateurs in the industry can simply put together the AT-LP60 and have it operating shortly.
Users can get to rediscover classic 33-1/3 as well as 45 RPM records using this affordable and fully-automated belt-drive workhorse. The gadget features switchable, built-in phono preamp and you can connect the AT-LP60 directly onto home stereo, computer and other components which exhibit no dedicated turntable input. Audio-Technica AT-LP60 comes supplied with integral Dual Magnet phono cartridge from the same manufacturer, which features replaceable stylus.
The device is superb choice of turntable for various reasons. It provides easy operation, impressive performance and is offered at affordable cost. Users should enjoy its professional aluminum platter as well. Cables included within its package help to connect your powered speakers or stereo. The built-in preamplifier it features is switchable and carries along line-level RCA output cables. Audio-Technica AT-LP60 measures 15.6 x 17.3 x 5.3 inches and weighs 8.3 pounds.
