Audio-Technica Consumer AT-LP5 overview

  • 1Description

The Audio-Technica AT-LP5 Direct-Drive Turntable combines advanced technology with a sleek, contemporary style for a deck that looks every bit as good as it sounds. The AT-LP5 incorporates a J-shaped tone arm, a design that harks back to the 60's and 70's, and utilizes a metallic gimbals suspension system with precision bearings, which mitigate tracking errors. The turntable also features an adjustable counterweight, anti-skate control, and comes outfitted with a lightweight AT-HS10 headshell and high-performance AT95EX dual moving magnet stereo cartridge that was specifically designed for this turntable.

Constructed from anti-vibration damping materials with heavy-mass metal chassis inserts, the AT-LP5 limits low-frequency acoustical feedback, while the 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 unit features a built-in switchable phono/line preamp that allows it to be connected directly to a computer, home stereo, powered speakers, or any other device without a phono preamp. Additionally, the turntable offers a USB output for direct connection to a computer with compatibility with Windows and Mac OS operating systems. The AT-LP5 ships with dual RCA cable with grounding wire, a 45 RPM adapter, USB cable, power cord, dust cover, and Audacity recording software.

    Audio-Technica Consumer AT-LP5 reviews

    AT-LP5 Direct-Drive Turntable (USB & Analog) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My return to vinyl has been a ear opening experience . . . I recently purchased my AT-LP5 as an addition to my Cambridge Audio home stereo. The AT-LP5 matches the understated aesthetics of the Cambridge Audio equipment and while providing a solid price performance turntable. I have augmented the AT-LP5 in my system with a stand-alone phone stage (Cambridge Audio MM / MC stage) but could have easily forgone that upgrade for some time . . . the LP5 line out level is well balanced. I have not used the USB output so I can not comment on that function.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing step-up turntable! BEAST!! I bought this turntable as a step-up from a low-end belt drive table. After making the switch, I am hearing things on my records I couldn't hear before! Acoustic and distorted guitars co-mingle wonderfully now, each wither their own distinct presence, where they used to blend together and get muddy at higher volumes. I will say, if this is your first turntable, it does take some time and knowledge to get it set up, so understand that before you buy. Don't be mad at AT just because you can't read the features. If you are a seasoned vinyl enthusiast looking for uncompromising sound quality, I can't say whether or not this is the turntable for you. But if you are the average to intermediate listener, especially a younger listener, wanting to upgrade or make a first purchase that will last and not leave any gaps in performance, LOOK NO FURTHER than the LP-5 as it is an absolute killer at this price range. I notice NO low-frequency distortion that the belt drive snobs complain about so much. From classical, to country, to rap, to rock, to death metal, the table keeps up with every detail and delivers sweet sound at all frequency ranges. Dynamics are carefully reproduced, from the slightest movement to the loudest crescendo. No dang belts to replace, no removing the platter to change speeds... this thing is a dream to operate and listen to. Simplistic controls mean less to wear out over time. Dampened tonearm lift is very gentle, and the thing tracks like a beast; plays cleanly on records that skipped with my old table. I may not be accustomed to listening on $10,000 hi-fi stereo setups but I do work at a pro audio store and listen to club-quality speakers all day, and this turntable delivers the whole picture with an astoundingly low noise floor and spot-on pitch stability. I gave 4 stars for reliability simply because Ive only owned it for about a week, however it appears to be built like a tank. Good job Audio-Technica.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Audio Technica AT-LP5 I just installed this and its nice to be able to listen to our old vinyl. The setup is fast and easy. we are very happy with this purchase.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Received the first unit and ended up returning it for a replacement due to noise from the motor. As always B&H was great about it. Received the second unit and am hearing the same noise. So much so that you can hear it through speakers during quiet parts of an album. I reached out to Audio-Technica and their service department assured me that this was normal operation. Debating on whether or not to hassle B&H again to return the second unit and move on to another brand.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I want to love it Returning for a new unit. Slight grinding noise on startup and there was a decent amount of platter wobble. Frustrating as I want to love it. Fingers crossed the new unit resolves the issue.
