"An almost-all-in-one, budget turntable that treats your records as music and not a mere curiosity." What Hi-Fi Award Winner 2017

Automatic for the people

The Audio Technica LP3 is a fully automatic turntable. This means that, unlike manual decks, there's no need to lift the tonearm on or off the record or change the speed by moving the belt. All playback requires is a push of a button or two.

Sounds great
Where the LP3 improves on other fully automatic turntables is in its sound quality. Audio Technica is a leading vinyl company and, with the LP3, their experience shines through. The anti-resonance design reduces distortion while the die-cast platter ensures pitch stability and smooth running.

Quality Audio Technica arm and cartridge
As one of the most recognised tonearm and cartridge manufacturers for decades, the arm and cartridge fitted to the LP3 are both 'best in class'. The tonearm features a removable headshell and adjustable tracking weight making it easy to upgrade the cartridge. Fitted with an exclusive version of the classic AT91 cartridge, the LP3 is well suited to playing back a wide range of music with precison and detail.

Built-in phono stage with MM and MC compatibility
Audio Technica have made it easy to hook up the LP3 to your existing system. A built-in phono stage means you don't have to have a hi-fi with a phono pre-amp built-in - any AUX input will work fine. More unusually, the built-in phono stage doesn't just work with MM (Moving Magnet) cartridges, but MC (Moving Coil), too. This gives you much greater flexibility when updating the cartridge.

The perfect starter deck that's also a sound platform for future upgrades, the Audio Technica LP3 makes music fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value turntable I've had this for around three weeks and have had no issues with it. Great value for money, comes with everything you need; even a built in pre-amp so you can easily connect to any speaker system without extra equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back to the future I bought this excellent piece of equipment on the last day of August and had it delivered a couple of days later! I unpacked it in record time and made a lucky dip out of my substantial vinyl collection! A journey back to the past as far as the music was concerned ,but the way forward as far as playing see it! Superb!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, great sound! So I decided to to get back into playing vinyl records and needed to get a turntable that was in the budget bracket but best in class and I can confirm that I believe I have achieved just that. This turntable is easy to work with, easy to set up with a professional feel to the separate parts that make the magic work and ultimately paired with a nice amp and a good set of speakers plays my new (and old) vinyl collection with a glorious authentic sound that I am delighted with and am sure you will be too. Great looking turntable too, not cheap looking and has pride of place in my lounge. If you are starting out like me you simply can't go wrong with this very nice turntable. I also noticed this was a WHICH award winner and that speaks volumes, so I am not alone in praising this Audio Technica turntable. Enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great budget turntable I bought this turntable to play through an old Denon DM39. Because of this, I didn't want to spend much, saving up for a better system instead. It's really easy to set-up & use. I didn't want an automatic particularly, but it's handy. It's a bit agricultural, the auto function makes a bit of noise as it's operating, but it works well. It sounds pretty good through my Denon & Tannoy Mercury speakers, much better than I thought it would for the price. I'd really recommend it as a budget deck, the auto function is great for beginners & it sounds better than it's price would suggest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent turntable in this pricerange Bought this recently after something went 'pop' with my last one. Seems to be a good choice so far, as it sits very nicely with my amp and CD player and sounds great. Balancing the arm was a bit fiddly, but mainly because I haven't had to do that before. The arm does seem very well balanced now and sits nicely on the record but without a 'heavy' feel.
