Best Turntable At This Price,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Audio Technica AT-LP60 Fully Automatic Belt Driven Turntable (Electronics)
You really can't get a better turntable for this price. It wasn't broken or cracked when it arrived, it was easy to assemble, and it sounds great. For under 100 bucks that is more than I expected. The other cool thing about this turntable that is not in the description is that it's easily upgradeable. The turntable comes with a ATN3600L stylus. You can replace that stylus with the ATN3600DLX stylus for even better sound quality and performance. You can also get a better belt for it too but I haven't looked into that yet. It's not going to get any better than this until you hit about the $300 range.

"Are "modern" turntables accurate enough not to warrant pitch adjustment, or should I move up to the ATLP120 with pitch control?" - Good question! I don't think so, but If anyone knows...
I 'think' Pitch Control accounts for minute physical problems, like a slightly stretched belt, anomolies in parts/fit, etc.
For clarity, Speed Selection (33.3/45/78) is for the type of record.

On my Sears it was fun to tweak the pitch so the strobe light showed "perfect" pitch, but don't recall ever noticing a difference in music quality.

Does it need a special cable or adapter? I'm new at this things and I would really appreciate some help with even the smallest things that I would have to know about turntables. Mi great grandfather gave me a HUGE collection of vynils and I would hate to ruin them by some small thing I didn't know.
Thank you very much!

Try connecting a good pair of speakers to it.

My friend recently bought this exact record player along with an amplifier which he thought he needed, and it is not true that you absolutely need an amplifier. You only need an amplifier if you are using passive (aka non-powered) speakers. Active (powered) speakers already have a built in amplifier, and simply need to be plugged in to the record player using the multitude of cords that come with it in the box. Most people these days have powered speakers. You can tell if you have powered speakers if you need to plug your speakers into a power outlet, just FYI.

Is an amplifier the same as an equalizer? Ihave not had a real stereo for sooooo long, I forget how it all works. Seeing this more sorry than ever I lost my really great stereo set and left all my albums with my ex. How in the world, do you replace that. Rhetorical. GOD, so pissed I though CD's were the new age in music. GIVE anything to have my old stuff back? Is this the same? Is it worth it. THanks!

You will need an amp or a stereo receiver. The turntable comes with a built in PREamp which basically just amplifies the signal of the record enough for the actual amp to hear it.
Here's an example of a stereo receiver:
Sony STRDH130 2 Channel Stereo Receiver (Black)
Some of the older receivers have a 'Phono' input. The Phono input has a Preamp in it's signal flow so you can plug your turntable in to that and flip the turntable's preamp switch OFF. I recommend doing it this way because the preamp in the receiver is likely to be of better quality than the one in the turntable. You can always A-B it though. Whatever sounds better, IS better. Just be careful not to have the turntable's preamp ON when you plug it into the 'Phono' input. You will get a loud, awful sounding surprise.
I hope this helped. Have fun
