Price and availability

The Audio-Technica AT-LP60XBT is a budget turntable that provides quality sound at an affordable price. We love how they’ve been able to keep this feature in line with their previous models, releasing one of our favorite decks – the LP60 – for only $99/£140 (around AU$ 140).

Design

Overall, the design of this turntable is both pleasing and functional with a black plinth that’s sleek in its space-saving dimensions. It also has incredible lightness at just 2.6kg thanks to extensive thin plastic usage; however, you may find it vulnerable because its small size makes storage difficult considering other furniture or large items might harm your record player if they bump into them while walking by without warning!

The AT-LP60XBT is a great turntable for those looking to make their home media party, but it’s not without its flaws. While testing out this vintage record player (you can also use recordings), I found myself worrying that one of the parts would break when in use by accident or on purpose because some components are made with lower quality materials than others; however all pieces functioned very well as expected!

Features and performance

Putting together the AT-LP60XBT is a fairly straightforward process, but it does require some assembly before you can start spinning your records. First of all, place the platter onto the spindle and then attach the belt to the motor pulley for easy transport wherever life takes its course! Once these pieces are in place assemble mat from felt material over the top of them both while holding tightly so as not to have any accidents happen during playback or record time

Audio-Technica suggests that you then “rotate the platter 10 times” using your hands to reset the auto mechanism, get rid of any twists in the belt and make sure it rides smoothly along the drive rim on the underside of the turntable. You do get an instruction manual with illustrations for this process but if unsure check out our guide about how to set up a record player!

You’ll love spinning records on this all-inclusive turntable! Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, the automatic lift and lower of your tonearm will make for easy playing. You can also move it manually if needed–although many beginners find that pressing “start” automatically does everything they need to get started with no hassle at all.

With the Audio-Technica AT-LP60XBT, you can enjoy your vinyl without sacrificing quality. This turntable comes equipped with a built-in phono equalizer so it will work well on its own or wirelessly over Bluetooth without an amplifier of any kind! You’ll be able to plug this baby into anything from speakers through headphones and still get a great sound – no external equipment needed whatsoever (though if your setup requires one for best results then don’t worry).

In order to pair the turntable, all you have to do is put your Bluetooth headphones or speakers into pairing mode and hold down their button on top of this device.

The AT-LP60XBT has a built-in Bluetooth receiver, so it’s easy to take this little guy with you on your next adventure. Pairing is simple and quick thanks to the LED light that indicates when pairing mode has been successfully engaged or not! We didn’t experience any connection dropouts while using this feature; we loved being able to combine old school vinyl warmth through wired headphones without having wires getting tangled up in the sight of course – but if you’re looking for higher quality sound than what can be offered by standard wireless technology then go ahead and connect everything together via speaker cable instead (mad respect).

The turntable supports Bluetooth 5.0 aptX connectivity, so the sound quality over a wireless connection is still pretty impressive. To test it out we played Sufjan Stevens’ Carrie and Lowell album – which you can hear beautifully flowing with his guitar arpeggios sweetly accenting every vocal melody he harmonizes for us to listen to! The warmth of this device’s sonic presentation might be considered an exception as most vinyls tend towards having more attack in treble frequencies, but if you’re looking for crispness from your tunes then maybe seek elsewhere because that was not something found here?

The Audio-Technica ATN3600L cartridge is a high-end, precision tool that has been designed for those looking to really capture and preserve the music they love. It will unveil new depths of sound within your favorite tracks; not many people can say their record player does this!

Conclusion

The AT-LP60XBT brings the expected features for a great first turntable at an affordable price. With its budget-friendly cost, easy assembly, and wireless playback capability this could make it perfect for any budding vinyl enthusiast looking to get started in their collection with something that can sound brilliant but also last long enough without breaking your bank account!

For those who want the sound and look of a high-end turntable without all that budget-priced equipment, Cambridge Audio’s Alva TT might be your best bet. It costs around £1500 ($1700) in UK stores as well!
