The Audio Technica AT-LP5X Turntable is an example of audio design excellence. Keeping the classic signature Audio Technica design but with upgraded technology, AT-L5PX is performance enhancing, smoother playing and hands on. It features a USB output for digitising your music collection. Plug in and play with ease. You can also connect straight to your computer, speaker and stereo systems with the built in switchable MM/MC phono pre amplifier.

Building on Audio-Technica’s analogue heritage and over 50 years of integral Japanese audio design, the Audio Technica AT-LP5X Fully Manual Direct Drive Turntable feature the latest upgraded technology while keeping the contemporary style and acclaimed performance of its predecessor, the Audio Technica AT-LP5.

The Audio Technica LP5X Turntable preserves the J-shaped tonearm, a design inspired by the classic Audio-Technica models of the 1960s and ’70s, and features a metallic gimbal suspension system and precision bearings to mitigate tracking errors. The tonearm also includes an adjustable counterweight and anti-skate control and comes fitted with a lightweight (9.3g) AT-HS6 headshell and the black AT-VM95E Dual Moving Magnet stereo cartridge.

Constructed of anti-vibration damping materials with heavy-mass metal chassis inserts, the Audio Technica AT-LP5X turntable has been designed to limit low-frequency acoustical feedback. Its precision-machined, die-cast aluminium platter is powered by a direct-drive, low-noise motor, ensuring stable, on-axis rotation at 33-1/3, 45 and 78 RPM. A 5 mm thick rubber damping mat, which isolates from low-frequency feedback while providing a highly stable surface for all LP formats, tops the platter.

The Audio Technica AT-LP5X features a built-in switchable MM/MC phono/line preamp which allows you to connect directly to a computer, home stereo, powered speakers and other components that have no dedicated turntable input, ideal for easy setup. The selection of MM/MC cartridges allows for an easy upgrade to a moving coil with additional equipment. The turntable is also equipped with a USB output for direct connection to a computer.
