For the Vinyl Junkie Dad: AT-LP7 Turntable
Whether Dad is looking for his first turntable or deserves an upgrade to true high-performance record playback, the AT-LP7 won’t disappoint. We built this fully manual, belt-drive turntable around the concept that a cartridge plays a critical role in reproducing high-fidelity audio from vinyl. The AT-LP7 comes with a VM520EB Dual Moving Magnet Cartridge, and the stylus can be replaced with any of the other six styli available in our VM line. More than just an attractive design, the turntable incorporates the finest materials and structures in support of the cartridge’s performance and offers excellent anti-vibration damping and anti-resonance elements for incredible audio quality.

Buying for the dad who always has the latest technology? He’ll be impressed with the ATH-ANC700BT headphones, which offer an outstanding combination of cable-free operation, noise cancellation and immersive sound. Our proprietary active noise-cancelling (ANC) technology greatly reduces environmental noise, while the headphones’ 40 mm drivers supply amazing wireless audio reproduction, with the ability to deliver Hi-Res Audio playback from audio sources when used with the included cable. The innovative design of the ATH-ANC700BT headphones also feature an intuitive touch and swipe control system built into the earcup, so Dad can easily tap to answer calls, play/skip music, and control volume. With memory-foam earpads and a wireless connection that lasts for up to 25 hours of continuous use, he’ll never want to take these headphones off.
