AT-LP60X Turntable Features
If you’re new to vinyl, you may be surprised to learn some turntables, like the AT-LP60X, need to be connected to external speakers, but its natural signal can be too low for average speakers without additional amplification. That’s why we included a built-in switchable phono preamp in the AT-LP60X. The phono preamp boosts and equalizes the signal from the turntable allowing it to work with a traditional home stereo system or powered speaker with a line-level input.
Another useful feature of this turntable is its fully automatic operation. The tonearm automatically lifts and cues the stylus at the start of the record, and also automatically lifts the tonearm once a record has ended.
Especially helpful for new vinyl enthusiasts is the fact that the AT-LP60X turntable comes with an integral Dual Magnet™ phono cartridge with a conveniently replaceable diamond stylus already attached to the tonearm. The tonearm is factory balanced, making it even easier to start listening to your records.
Both the headshell and tonearm were designed to limit unwanted resonance and enhance the tracking accuracy of the stylus to prevent poor sound quality or vinyl damage. Similarly, the die-cast aluminum platter also helps prevent extra vibrations that would otherwise impact music playback. Furthermore, the AC adapter handles the necessary AC/DC conversion outside of the turntable’s chassis to reduce noise in the signal chain. As such, this turntable is able to precisely replicate the authentic vinyl sound for music lovers to fully appreciate.
The AT-LP60X comes with an included RPM adapter that supports both 33-⅓ and 45 RPM records. It also comes with a detachable RCA output cable and a removable, hinged dust cover that keeps the platter clean in between uses. In addition to the standard black, this turntable is also available in several different color combinations, including brown and black, gunmetal and black, or red and black.
