Best Turntable At This Price,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Audio Technica AT-LP60 Fully Automatic Stereo Turntable System, Silver (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.

Does it have counter-weight balancing and anti-skate? The stylus isn't as crucial as the cartridge.

@ Jstalings: I'm sure you connected the record player to a receiver with the male connectors, and the speakers to the receiver with the raw wire connections- this was my setup I inherited from the 60's. Most modern setups use the RCA cables or the headphone style wires for both inputs and outputs as the raw wire connection tends to go out faster- this way you can also connect speakers directly to the turntable (though it probably would not sound as good).

I'm considering this as a gift for my boyfriend, he has a Harmon/Kardon receiver. Will the turntable be able to connect to that and be heard through his speakers?

I bought this a few months ago, just to see if I would be into the vinyl renaissance thing. I have a nice (but older) home theater system with a built-in phono pre-amp. I tried the receiver pre-amp first, but there was a buzzing sound that was caused by my dimmer switch (bad pre-amp ground perhaps). I then switch on the turntable's self-contained pre-amp and that was 100xs better. I use this turn table every day and buy a new vinyl once a week. I love love love it! I'm not an audio nerd, so I might not be the best judge, but it sounds as good as any music I've ever had in my home.
I have this set up real nice in my man cave. It's not the sexiest turntable in the world... Ugly dust cover (removed), bulky cheap gray plastic. Soon I want to upgrade to the Pro-jec RMP 1.3, if only for the looks.
I love this thing! Totally worth the 80 bucks or so. But probably not my last turntable, I need a prettier unit.

the pre-amp can be used or not, via switch. So it can run straight to speakers (via internal preamp), or through a receiver or external phono preamp)...

Did you get it? Any feedback?
Edit: Asking if anyone got a external amp with the lp60.
