The landmark Audio-Technica AT-LP5 turntable is proof positive that an affordable turntable can deliver the performance, design and reliability expected of high-fidelity models. A perfect balance of technology and design, the sleek contemporary lines of the AT-LP5 turntable grace any room in the home, while delivering performance features born out of Audio-Technica’s rich analog heritage.
It has received raved reviews all over the world, 5 stars across board from any audio magazines or websites. It is a massive improvement over the lower end AT-LP120-USB. Mid-range is simply clearer and sweeter. Overall a more balanced and accurate sound reproduction. The 5mm mat, AT95EX cartridge, together with improvements in tonearm, motor and gold platted headshell connector, they work wonders in minimising vibration. The result is in larger sound stage, better sound separation and tighter bass.
Audio Technica AT-LP5 has been selected as the best turntable under £400 by What HIFI magazine.
The direct-drive turntable with its precision-engineered cast aluminium record platter, fitted with the exclusive high-performance AT95EX Dual Moving Magnet cartridge, itself mounted on an AT-HS10 lightweight headshell, proves the LP5 doesn’t compromise when it comes to materials and components.
The LP5’s J-shaped tonearm, which helps minimise tracking errors, is based on original Audio-Technica designs from the 1960s and 70s. 33 1/3rd & 45 RPM speeds, phono or line stereo outputs with separate grounding, a low-resonance damped & weighted chassis structure, the heavy 5mm thick rubber-composite platter mat and sleek matte black paint finish create a comprehensive package.
