"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 precision 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 What’s not to love about Richer Sounds? Had previously bought a Project T1 not realising it was entirely manual. No problem, they found me an alternative deck arranged a partial refund delivery and collection. A fab turntable for me and yet again fantastic customer service from Richer Sounds, one of my favourite retailers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back into vinyl After a 25 year break from vinyl I decided to take the plunge again, Colin from the Newcastle shop was very helpful and spent time talking me through the options, after deciding on AT LP3 I must say his advice was bang on!, I am loving listening to vinyl again, the LP3 sounds great, was easy to set up, thanks for the demo Colin!, and perfect for someone who didn't want to break the bank but get a good turntable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great turntable Bought this a couple of weeks ago as my sons first turntable. Very impressed with the build quality, although plastic it is heavy and solidly built. The base is well supported with decent damping on the feet. Tonearm was a dream to setup and the instructions are very clear. We are using it linein to an amplifier at the moment but will probably move to an pre-amp later. Very happy generally with this purchase and with the usual great service from richer sounds. All in all I can't fault it at the price and although the pickup is at the lower end of the AT range it produces good dynamic lively sound and there is a clear upgrade path.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Record deck update! I bought this deck for a birthday present to my husband. He was delight . Sound it really good. Nice sleek design compared to oldDual deck. I hadn’t a clue what to buy, but advice given was very useful. Really quick delivery too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and a great sound I was surprised to find that I had to assemble the record player myself, however, the instructions provided meant that it only took a matter of minutes to get it up and running. The one thing that I would say is to follow the instructions especially when it comes to turning the turntable manually 10 times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good recommendation Bought this to replace a broken Sony record deck. Selected on the recommendation of staff at Cardiff Richer Sounds. Slightly more expensive than I had originally planned, however quality of sound is better than from previous deck. Easy to set up, Sounds great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to set up and easy to use and a joy to listen I bought this to replace a bush turntable my wife bought me as a birthday gift a few years back but i never got used to. some of my records played fine but others did not and setting the tone arm was tricky. so frustrated one evening i bought the audio technic LP3 and i am glad I did. it arrived and felt and looked better than my previous turntable. the set up is easy and the instruction understandable and come with illustration (though their are plenty of YouTube videos to show you how). I connected it to my amp and pressed "start" and it landed on the record smoothly and accurately and the sound was clear, crisp and I can hear the bass and treble tones and this using a cheap amp. After it finished, it smoothly and accurately returned to its resting place. I have been collecting vinyl since I was a child and missed playing my records and now I can play them and hear them the way they are supposed to be heard. Aesthetically, it looks amazing and before buying I read all the i reviews and I could not find a single bad review. I am really looking to many years of enjoyment from this turntable and its ignited an interest in building a hi-fi system with a cd player, dab radio and an amp with headset output and possible blue tooth or wifi. I really, cant recommend this turntable enough.
