First Look: The Audio-Technica AT-LP60 is a beginner's turntable for the vinyl revival

1:26 /

Whether you're rediscovering your collection or just getting started, the Audio-Technica AT-LP60 gets the job done at an unbeatable price.

[MUSIC] Hey, it's Justin from CNet. Today I'm taking a first look at the Audio Technica AT LP60 Turntable. Now what makes this one so special aside from the budget price tag, is the built-in phono preamp. So unlike other turntables you normally buy out of the box. The photo pre-amp, along with a few cable adapters, let you hook this turntable up to any stereo amp, receiver, computer, boom box, bluetooth speaker. Or whatever else with an analog audio jack. And that makes it ideal for people who are just getting back into buying records. Or if they don't wanna spend too much to get started. It's belt driven, so it's more suited for at-home listening and Audio Technica makes it pretty easy to set up by pre-setting the counter-weight and tracking force. You could adjust the settings for platter speed, and both seven and 12 inch records. And there's also a 45 adapter disk in there too. Your only downsides here are that you can't upgrade to a better phono cartridge, but you can replace the cartridge's stylus or needle. So you can improve the setup in the future. Again, this is a beginner's turntable only, so if you're an audiophile or plan to get into the record game for the long term, consider an upgrade to the U Turn Orbit, or the Project Debut. Check out full details on this turntable in the review on cnet, thanks for watching, you just checked out a quick review on the Audio Technica LP60 Turntable. [MUSIC]
