Audio Technica AT- LP5X Direct Drive Turntable


5 Stars, What Hifii?, Jan 2020

When What Hifi? first announced the arrival of the LP5X in Sep 2019, it called it an award-winning turntable improved!

The AT-LP5X direct-drive USB turntable is the direct successor to the AT-LP5, which won a What Hi-Fi? Award in 2016, the year it arrived, for its combination of entertaining, expressive performance and plug ‘n’ play convenience.

The LP5x possesses some of the magic from its predecessor: the J-shaped tonearm, aluminium platter, and a USB output for digitising a record collection, for example. Yet it’s far from just an LP5 with a new name and 2019 packing.

The LP5X uses the next generation cartridge, the AT-VM95E; supports 78rpm playback; sports an external power supply which reduces signal noise; and offers an MM/MC built-in phono stage.

  • Direct-drive, low noise motor
  • Fully manual operation with three speeds: 33-1/3, 45 and 78 RPM
  • AT-VM95E Dual Moving Magnet stereo cartridge (black) with replaceable stylus
  • Lightweight AT-HS6 headshell
  • J-shaped tonearm, modeled after original Audio-Technica designs from the 1960s and ’70s, are engineered to minimize tracking errors
  • Switchable MM/MC built-in pre-amplifier and line enables connection to components with or without a dedicated phono input
  • Anti-resonance, die-cast aluminium platter
  • Heavy rubber damping mat for improved low-frequency reproduction
  • AC adapter handles AC/DC conversion outside of the chassis, reducing noise in the signal chain
  • Elegant matte black finish
  • Includes dual RCA (male) to dual RCA (male) stereo cable, 45 RPM adapter, USB cable
  • Included dust cover and mounting hardware

All turntables come with a one (1) year local manufacturer’s warranty
