This great turntable now comes with a clear dust cover lid included!
The Audio Technica AT-LP5 is a perfect balance of technology and design, an attractive turntable delivering great performance.
The direct-drive cast aluminium platter plays both 33 1/3 and 45 RPM records. The ATLP5 has been engineered to minimise resonance, with a thick damping mat on the platter and a body built to reduce vibration.
The J-shaped tonearm reduces tracking error, whilst being a stylish call back to Audio-Technica designs of the 1960s & 70s. It comes fitted with Audio-Technica's lightweight AT-HS10 headshell and the exclusive AT95Ex Dual Moving Magnet cartridge.
The AT-LP5 offers several choices for output. A built-in switchable phono/line pre-amplifier means you can connect to a stereo system equipped with either phono or line-level inputs. There is also a USB socket, for output to a computer. A copy of Audacity recording software is included, so you can transfer your vinyl collection to digital files to play back on the move..

||What HiFi 5 Stars
"A great sense of the setting of the recording, a combination of spacious soundstage and detail." "There is a really nicely poised, natural balance to the sound that doesn’t want for bass." "It is the AT-LP5’s overall character we enjoy so much, something that is unchanging whether using its built-in phono stage or running through a more expensive one." "Audio-Technica has what matters spot on - this is a turntable that is both a pleasure to use and to listen to."
