” 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 JUST THE WAY A TURNTABLE SHOULD LOOK What a great piece of kit - well built and sturdy. A great look - feels like 'old school', but sounds like 21st century. I was amazed at the vast improvement in sound quality of my favourite records. Crisp, rich and defined - especially the vocal projection. Matched with a Marantz Melody MCR412 receiver and Dali Spektor 1 speakers on the advice of the Brighton branch and am very pleased. Well worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Vinyl has come to life! One week in and I cannot stop playing vinyl. Chose the Audio-Technica LP5X and haven't looked back. Great service from Richer Sounds over the telephone with clear expertise and authoritative answers to my initial questions. Quick delivery via courier. Couldn't be easier to set up and pairs brilliantly with my Marantz PM6006UK Amp and an old but trusted pair of Acoustic Energy AE-1 speakers. The depth and definition sound is stunning and I am hearing things that I have never heard before. Have played rock, metal, synth, Indi and film soundtracks. All have come to life. Cannot recommend this turntable enough and so pleased I bought it at Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sounds also enhanced by Cyrus amplifier I phoned up the Exeter store and was recommended this by Tim. We have been very delighted with it and can't rate this store enough. Tim was very helpful and the service was very efficient. I bought it for my husband's 70th birthday, and we have bought a few things here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product After weeks of lockdown research I decided upon the Audio-Technica LP5X. Why? Well my daughter got a record player for her Uni Room and she loves it. Her passion for vinyl took me back to when I was her age, so made the decision to purchase one myself. Having embraced the Sonos range, looked at turntables which would suit and could not get away from the outstanding reviews of the LP5X. The turntable itself is a well made unit. It has weight and a direct drive motor, the cartridge is of exceptional quality and as well as a USB output it has the ability with the software to record your vinyl to MP3, if you wish. Why is it so good? Just listen to it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Record Deck and Amp I bought a record player and integrated amp from Richer Sounds. Excellent advice over the phone which actually saved me money as they recommended a different amp which was cheaper. Would use them again, without a doubt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Robust Turntable I researched for weeks before taking the plunge with this turntable. I am 53 and last played vinyl around 30 years ago. I did some research on entry level turntables and the ATLP5x came up on quite a few lists. I took the plunge with it and glad I did. Couldn't believe the robustness of this turntable...around 7kg, adjustable feet and feels very solid. Very easy to set up. I plugged it into my new Onkyo A9010 amp using the phono stage and wow it sounds good. No problems yet but I am early days into my vinyl revival. The only concern I have is that the turntable is on a glass shelf and the feet are sort of sticky, which means if I want to move it slightly I have to apply a bit of force to overcome the suction. Apart from that, so far...awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I spent a lot of time searching online reviews before buying this. I’m so glad I did. The sound is good and setup is really easy. The built in preamp makes life a lot easier and the option to bypass gives options for future upgrades. Really happy I purchased this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality and value My old Pioneer PL12D had reached the end of it's useful life and I wanted to change to a direct drive turntable to get rid of the 'rubber band' drive belt. Considered several, but this was recommended and hasn't disappointed. Richer Sounds service was, as ever, brilliant and the turntable arrived in just a couple of days. Set up was fairly straightforward and it integrated will with my Rotel amp and Mission speakers to provide excellent sound from my old vinyl collection. Tyhe sound produced is clear and crisp and the arm and stylus cope will with some old and in, some cases, dusty records. A very good buy and I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent all-round performer I bought this turntable having considered others in the price range such as the Rega Planar and I’m really pleased I went with this deck. The sound is rich, detailed and packs a punch, especially with the easy addition of an upgraded Audio Technica nude conical stylus (though the supplied Audio Technica conical stylus still sounded very good). It has enough useful features without spoiling its good looks and the build quality is good (the speed switch selector feels like that of a more expensive deck for one example). Easy to set up, excellent service from Richer Sounds, a very happy vinyl junkie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, Elegant and a Great Sound After some discussion with Dave in Bristol about various bits of kit, I opted for the LP5x and a Cambridge One mini HiFi to plug it through. Slightly more than I wanted to spend but well worth it. The deck looks good, is easy to setup (check out the AT you tube video) And sounds gorgeous for all my vinyl from ‘30’s blues to the latest Boomtown Rats. If you want bells and whistles look elsewhere but the built in phono and broad sharp tonal sound make this a great birthday present to myself. And thanks to Dave at Richer Sounds for his help and service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound with depths of warmth I have been resisting returning to vinyl in the current form, because I knew that I would become addicted to another format. However during the current climate of working from home I dived in and revisited my old vinyl. What a fantastic sound bringing back memories from way back and it really does sound deeper and immersive than the clinical sound of digital music. I have begun to digitise my vinyl to see what that sounds like, which was another reason for purchasing this model. I have always received excellent service from Richer Sounds and once again they came through brilliantly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! Although I had been looking at another (cheaper) Audio-Technica model, as I particularly wanted a turntable with a 78 rpm speed, when I saw that the LP5X now had that capability, my mind was made up. I ordered the turntable over the 'phone, together with the additional stylus required for 78 rpm records, the latter being a special order to be sent to me direct from Audio-Technica. The turntable arrived promptly. Set up was pretty straightforward, although the instructions supplied by Audio-Technica are not clear. Anyone who has not set up a turntable before, or (like me!) hasn't done so for decades would be well advised to download the full operating manual from the Audio-Technica website and look through that before starting. The 78 rpm stylus arrived in the post just 24 hours after the turntable. Having now had chance to listen to a wide range of music at 33, 45 and 78 rpm, I can say I am utterly delighted with this turntable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Sound Easy to setup and sounds superb (using the phono port on my Marantz amplifier). Even old records bought from the charity shop, with visible surface scratches, sound good after being cleaned up. I've not tried any recording yet, using the USB port, but it's nice to have it as an option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good features and performance Buying this turntable has re-ignited my love for vinyl, enabling me to revisit my vinyl collection which had previously sat unplayed for years. The turntable looks really stylish being a cool matt black and performs really well, was easy to set up straight out of the box and has the added advantage that I will also be able play my collection of 78s too after purchasing a 78 stylus. Overall, a great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service and knowledge I was originally going to buy another turntable, but after discussing this with Richer Sounds at Prestwich it was clear that i needed this turntable instead. What a marvellous product. Once again, and as always, thank you Prestwich Richer Sounds for guiding me in the right direction. It's a wonderful turntable, kind regards, Jeremyjazz

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely sound at a very reasonable price. I purchased this to convert some of my treasured vinyl to digital during lockdown which I’d been meaning to do for at least 10 years (trying to find silver linings in this strange time). It was simplicity itself to assemble (I am hopelessly uncoordinated) and I have been very pleased with the quality of the sound (although less pleased with the quality of some of the vinyl which I had clearly significantly abused in my youth). I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and looks good to I bought this turntable a couple of weeks ago to replace my long broken Aiwa one, ordered it online it came in two days later, was a doddle to set up, and does it sound good with my Denon amp and Q Acoustic speakers (also bought from Richer Sounds), best turntable I've had.
