Audio-Technica AT-LP60 Review

Try going to the college dorm room of a record collector or music enthusiast and not seeing the Audio-Technica AT-LP60. This incredibly popular turntable, though now discontinued, is still going strong through external stockists, and for good reason!

Audio Technica – The Brand Audio Technica’s journey as an audiophile manufacturer began in earnest at the turn of the 1960s. It was then that Hideo Matsushita – curator of Tokyo’s Bridgestone Museum of Art – would host listening concerts at his place of work where music lovers could experience vinyl listening

Testing the Audio Technica LP60 In attempting to test what the Audio Technica was capable of, we sought to use a varied range of vinyl records. These were going to offer a varied frequency response (well, as varied as the limited sonic spectrum of vinyl recording can offer, which you would know, too)

The Audio Technica AT-LP60 Not only is it affordable, but it is also sturdy and able to get the job done. The frequency response is more than satisfactory, with a stylus that is able to accurately read a whole range of different signals. Each of the different LPs we threw at the turntable was read and dealt with duly.

Pros 1. For the price, the build quality is sturdy and exemplary, constructed from durable and reliable materials. 2. The sound quality and frequency response is a cut above the rest (especially others in a similar price range). 3. The Audio Technica is fully USB capable and can, thus, connect the turntable smoothly

Cons 1. For all the varied compatibility and connectivity that the Audio Technica AT-LP60 boasts, it can only play vinyl records. 2. The AT-LP60 does not have speakers of its own built-in 3.  The AT-LP60 does not feature any Bluetooth or wireless connectivity
