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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Croydon Resident from Audio-Technica LP5X turntable. I recently purchased this turntable after being advised by a friend who had also purchased the same one. He was very pleased with it and he came and set it up for me. It works really well and I am extremely satisfied with it. Richer sounds delivered it the next day. On time and on budget!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snegovikhoroshyi from Great turntable for a reasonable price Easy to use, room for an upgrade, direct drive which is not that common… What is more to want for a little over 300 quid?

Rated 5 out of 5 by al50 from Feels solid, and really nice sound. I'm very pleased with my turntable. It's reassuringly heavy and the sound is lovely, makes me realise how poor the cheaper one I had before was. I'm not experienced at setting up tonearms and the instructions in the leaflet weren't enough for me, but there are better ones on the Audio Technica website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ady Powter from Solid sounding turntable Had this for about 2 months now (replaced a Project T1 Phono SB). Absolutely solid sound. Really impressed with the Cartridge set-up (so easy if you want to replace the stylus cartridge etc). Chose this as it takes the Ortofon Cartridges that I have, and also for the USB copy to PC function. Could do that previously via the AMP but using USB to a PC definitely works for me. All in all, really impressed and pleased with the kit. The team at the Cambridge shop really know their stuff and helped me choose this unit. The demo was also impressive in the audio room. I would choose Richer Sounds and the team every time I want to update my audio kit. 10 out of 10!!
