3.0 out of 5 stars Good purchase for the money, September 26, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Audio Technica AT-LP60 Fully Automatic Belt Driven Turntable (Electronics)
I bought this when the stylus on my old Soundesign turntable and saw that for $20 more than buying a new stylus, I could upgrade to a better record player. The player itself has 2 settings for autostart" 7" and 12" which covers most of my records. Unfortunately, there is no 10 setting. There are also only 2 speeds: 33.3 and 45 RPM. No 78 RPM setting, so older records will not play on this turntable. Sound-wise, this record player is a big improvement over the player I was using before. Unless a record is very scratched up, you will not hear crackling when using this turntable. Overall, if you want an inexpensive turntable you can't go wrong here. This is definitely the best turntable in its price range.

I have had good luck fitting this player with a 78 rpm stylus, capturing to the computer at 45 rpm, then speeding up and applying the appropriate equalization curve in software. It's more work, but exercising this control (with a good ear!) can result in a superior digital transfer.

Define older records? What is the cut-off for those who cannot be played on this player?

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 2, 2011 5:56:09 PM PDT
By the sounds of it, 78rpm records. Not sure how common those are though.

Any ones which are large and thick and from the 30s. Any of the ones made out of vinyl will play (40s till now).

As other people have said, older means 80 years old. This shouldn't be a problem unless you have some rare stuff and I'd probably be afraid to play it anyway.

Most likely: You have to change the input settings. go to Apple menu, pull down to "System Preferences" go to "Sound" and then go to "input". change from "internal microphone" to "line in"

Since it's USB that means that this can be set up to record records to a computer, right?

And exactly a year later......Did you plug it into the headphone port? Because the headphone port is output only. I'm not sure what ports are available on your iMac, but it would have to be in microphone port. And even then, some sort of software would be necessary to make a decent rip

So this may sound like a silly question, but I have to ask it. Does this turntable come with audio or do I need to get speakers?
