AT-LP5 by audio-technica

The AT-LP5 direct-drive turntable brings advanced technology and sleek, contemporary styling together for performance that looks as good as it sounds. Born of Audio-Technica’s rich analog heritage, the AT-LP5 incorporates a J-shaped tone arm that takes its inspiration from the classic A-T models of the 1960s and ’70s. The tone arm features a metallic gimbal suspension system and precision bearings to mitigate tracking errors, and includes an adjustable counterweight and anti-skate control. It comes outfitted with a lightweight (10 g) AT-HS10 headshell and high-performance AT95EX Dual Moving Magnet stereo cartridge, created specifically for this turntable.

Constructed of anti-vibration damping materials with heavy-mass metal chassis inserts, the AT-LP5 turntable is a class leader in limiting low-frequency acoustical feedback. Its precision-machined, die-cast aluminum platter is powered by a direct-drive, high-torque motor, ensuring stable, on-axis rotation at 33-1/3 or 45 RPM. The platter is topped by a 5 mm thick rubber damping mat that improves low-frequency reproduction.

The AT-LP5 features a built-in switchable phono/line preamp that enables it to be connected directly to a computer, home stereo, powered speakers and other components that have no dedicated turntable input. The turntable is also equipped with a USB output for direct connection to a computer, and comes with PC- and Mac-compatible Audacity® software that lets you convert your records to MP3, WAV or other digital audio file formats.

A Gem Of A Turntable
An excellent turntable for anyone. There are other reviews out there that I shall not repeat, but I wanted to affirm the positive reviews. To fix my Rega Planar 2 broken tonearm wires was cost prohibitive so I gave this AT-LP5 a shot without any prior knowledge of it. What a hidden gem I stumbled on. With the supplied cartridge [AT95ex] it sounds every bit as good as the Rega. I run it through a Creek OBH-8 pre-amp and if needed it can do USB and standard line out. Easy to change cartridges are a bonus not found on other belt drive tables. Adjustable feet and an actual hinged lid. My only complaint is trivial; the location of the units power switch and line selector is on back of unit (minus half star). Other than that, a carefree well built unit for me.
