” The AT-LP5x is a well-executed design that sounds great for the money. It’s also well built, easy to set up and nice to use. These things make it worthy of a spot on anyone’s shortlist.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

The perfect blend of features and sound quality

The latest turntable in an award-winning line gives you the perfect balance of features and sound quality. It’s ideal as a way in to vinyl or for those already with a cherished collection. For the best sound quality, the AT-LP5X is fully manual and comes fitted with top quality Audio Technica arm and cartridge. Unlike more basic decks, however, there’s a USB output, built-in phonostage and 3-speed switching.

Designed for clarity
With its direct drive motor, the AT-LP5X gives superb pitch stability. Combined with the cast aluminium platter and low resonance chassis, it gives the AT-LP5X ideal speed stability for perfect pitch and the lowest distortion.

Enhanced Audio Technica tonearm
The J-shaped tonearm is a classic AT design that’s designed for perfect groove alignment. Fitted with adjustable dynamic anti-skate control, the tonearm lets the cartridge track the record as accurately as possible, giving the lowest distortion and highest levels of detail.

Latest AT cartridge
The AT-LP5X also benefits from being fitted with the latest Audio Technica cartridge. Featuring an elliptical stylus, the Audio Technica AT-VM95E is a great upgrade over standard cartridges. Compared to more basic conical cartridges, the elliptical stylus on the VM95E literally gets deeper into the groove – pulling out more music.

Three speeds – including 78
As well as 33 and 45 records, the AT-LP5X is now compatible with 78s. Simply swap over the stylus for an AT-VMN95SP (available as a cost option) and you’ve a deck perfectly set for 78s.

Archive your records to PC or Mac via USB
With its USB output, hooking the Audio Technica LP5 to your PC or Mac is a moment’s work. Connect the deck to your PC or Mac, use the supplied Audacity software and you can record all your vinyl to MP3. From here, the choice is yours. Load them on to your MP3 player or NAS drive, record on to CD or just have the records archived on your computer - whatever your choice, your LPs are now more accessible than ever before.

Built-in phono stage
Audio Technica have made it easy to hook up the AT-LP5X 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. Alternatively, switch the built-in phonostage off and use your existing one.

Get deeper into the groove, with the Audio Technica AT-LP5X.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really excellent customer service I purchased this for my son and took out the extra warranty and it was so worth it. There was a problem after a year with the turntable and Richer Sounds (Callum) were brilliant. Did an exchange without any quibblerling and we know how a new unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AT LP5X Best turntable I have ever owned. Great build quality and amazing sound. Looking forward to copying vinyl onto CD for the car journey! Rock on \m/

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bit of kit! I've had this turntable for just over a week now and the step up in quality from my previous TEAC(budget model) is very noticeable. This isn't ready to go out of the box though, take some time to set it up and you'll be rewarded with a sturdy deck with great sound. Also, be aware that this is totally manual - there's no auto return and you need to set the turntable going before you can drop the needle on the record - but it is totally worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clarity of sound across a good range of diff I bought it a week ago as a present for my son, reasonable easy to set up and he has really enjoyed listening to a great range of albums.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep, rich sound (after my years away from vinyl). I was given really good advice by Richer Sounds of Exeter, on replacing the turntable of my Technics system (purchased in 1993). When the system came out of storage a few years ago, the turntable didn't work (loud hum & popping). I didn't have much idea of what to do and considered replacing the entire system (rest of it fully operational), but was advised to try this deck, for both its quality & compatibility with my existing separates. I haven't stopped playing my vinyl, dating back to 1984, since. Certainly been a lockdown blessing. I like the manual stylus arm too and it was relatively easy to set-up and go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well built turntable with excellent features. I bought this turntable about 2 weeks ago and in general I am extremely happy with it. However, at the moment I am undecided about the cartridge supplied with it. I say this because it seems to pick up every 'click' and 'pop' and surface noise from the record. I also have an Audio Technica LP3 turntable with a less expensive cartridge, which I prefer the sound of. Maybe the more expensive cartridge will improve after more us?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ATLP5X Good quality manual features no gimmicks I bought this turntable a couple of weeks ago because i had a collection of records and wanted to re-visit the pleasure of listening to records again. Having looked at reviews i decided this model had a simple manual operation using quality parts and i was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of sound for the money. My audio system uses a Denon PMA-560 amplifier and the phono match is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, good build quality. Easy to setup As the owner of over 100 LPs, many not played for several years I thought it was time to obtain a decent turntable with which to refresh my memory with how good they are. This turntable has succeeded admirably. I'm enjoying it greatly
