Hear all the detail that’s been missing from your records, with the beautifully engineered Audio Technica AT-LPW50PB.

Simple design for the best sound
Fully manual, belt drive and featuring two speeds, the Audio Technica AT-LPW50PB concentrates on just the basics – meaning more attention to detail for the best sound possible. Supplied with top quality Audio Technica tonearm and cartridge, the AT-LPW50PB is the complete package and ready for your vinyl adventures.

Vibration resistant base
Getting the best sound from your records relies much on isolating the deck from vibrations. Rather than plastic, the AT-LPW50PB uses anti-resonant, 30mm thick MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard). This gives both rigidity and vibration absorption, for the lowest levels of distortion. Height adjustable, isolation feet provide further protection from harmful vibrations.

Fully adjustable, carbon fibre tonearm
Constructed from carbon fibre, the matte-finish tonearm doesn’t just look the part, it sounds it, too. Carbon fibre makes the tonearm extremely rigid, meaning it helps the cartridge to track as accurately as possible and resists distortion. The tonearm comes with a detachable headshell, adjustable tracking force and anti-skating settings – letting you easily adjust the tonearm to suit a huge range of potential cartridge upgrades. Not that you need to be in a hurry to upgrade the cartridge...

Supplied with the award-winning AT-VM95E cartridge
Another bonus with this high quality turntable is the supplied cartridge – the class-leading AT-VM95E. Featuring an elliptical stylus, the Audio Technica AT-VM95E is a great upgrade over most standard cartridges. Compared to more basic conical cartridges, the elliptical stylus on the VM95E literally gets deeper into the groove – pulling out more music.

Connect to almost any hi-fi – with built-in phono pre-amp
With a phono pre-amp built-in, the AT-LPW50PB connects to almost any hi-fi or speaker system. The phono pre-amp boosts the signal to line level, meaning you can connect it to any device with an AUX input. If you’d rather use your amp’s phono pre-amp, then simply switch off the turntable’s one.

Classic, piano-black finish
Like all the finest grand pianos, the AT-LPW50PB is finished in sumptuous piano-black gloss. Combined with the contrasting, matte black tonearm, it’s a sophisticated design that’s sure to stand the test of time.

With everything you need - done to the highest standards - and nothing you don’t, the Audio Technica AT-LPW50PB puts sound first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great. Sound is marvellous. Bought this a week ago and it has revitalised my interest in my old vinyl. Even bought some new records. Didn’t realise how much improved new kit can be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing turntable and fantastic service Had a really helpful chat (via Zoom) with the store manager who answered all my questions and more, and gave me some really well informed advice about the turntable. I couldn’t be happier with the product - it’s everything I thought it would be and more. The build quality is superb; it looks great and the sound quality has me working my way through my records and enjoying how much better they all sound!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, good sound, looks good Purchased this through Richer Sounds Guildford after asking the team for advice - this came highly recommended and suited me for what I needed Very happy with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish, Refined with warm rich sound. Impressed. Spent quite a while trying to figure which turntable to get. I was set on AT Brand. Looking at the LP120XUSB, LPW30TK and LPW40WN. My decision was to have a good stylus out of the box. The design needed to simple yet elegant. As the unit will sit in full view it in needs to have presence of quality, when static or in operation. The unit is impressive, it replaces my 25 year old Bush Mtt1. The sound is purer with warmer tones. It is significantly heavier coming in at around 5Kg. The movement and refinement is great quality and deserves it status on the top tier of hi-fi cabinet. Down sides the plastic dust cover, it is required, but brings the looks of unit down a tad. If you flip it over, it wouldn't look out of place on the bottom shelf of the fridge with salad and tomatoes on it. The unit has external transformer from the wall socket which is good, the downside is it makes the wall socket rather bulbous in relation to other plugs. As I like to hide plugs I needed to modify my setup to accommodate it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dare to be Different! I replaced my Project RPM1 Carbon with the ATLPW50 being a massive fan of AT cartridges that I use on my Linn Axis and not wanting another bland sounding Project/Ortofon combo. After an initial problem with an imbalanced platter was rapidly sorted by the Middlesbrough store and Web Team, I knew I’d made the right choice. It just plays music in a way that makes me not want to stop. I have the Microline and Shibata styli for the cartridge so instant upgrade available but I can’t believe how good the supplied ATMV95E sounds. So much so that I’ve left it on most of the time. Looks great too and recommend highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Turntable!!! I brought this turntable with the advice from Cibo at the Cambridge store. It is perfect for what I needed. Fantastic looking player and wonderful sound. The ease of changing the AC Cartridge is great and perfect for keeping little hands off of the fragile stylus. The tone arm also has a lock to keep it in place should anyone open up the dust cover. Maybe in a few years I’ll let my son play some records and upgrade to a Linn! Until then this is perfect. Very happy. Photo attached. Child locks are my addition. maybe I need to relax a little?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A stylish addition to my hi fi I bought this a few weeks back and I am absolutely delighted with it. The mechanism is so quiet that I didn’t realise it was working when I first turned it on. It’s easy to set up and the performance is great. I bought it because I wanted the best turntable at the price without any features like USB that I knew I wouldn’t use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great return to vinyl Bought this after a lot of research and needing an integrated pre amp. I feel that this was a great compromise of cost vs performance. Looks fantastic with the gloss base and the lid looks and performs well. Packaging is brilliant too so no issues with posting out

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning sound, easy to setup I bought this following a chat with the store assistant and I couldn’t be happier with the sound. Personally I love the appearance and how easy it was to get up and running!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and easy to set up Bought it to replace an ancient JVC turntable as the auto-return mechanism stops short of the rest now. Basically the mechanics have had it after over 40 years. As for the new one, I like the look and like the uncomplicated operation and surprisingly OK about the manual return. It comes with a good cartridge and sound great. I have not tried it with an external preamp so far but will do for comparison as I suspect the internal one does not quit have the clarity of my previous setup. I'm sure there are classier turntables out there if you have the pockets but the AT is well made and worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted with the quality of my new record deck I already had a Rotel amplifier and Warfdale speakers which served well over the last 40 years! I was very impressed with the meticulous care taken with the packageing of the unit. The YouTube video was particularly helpful assembling and balancing the arm. I am absolutely delighted with the quality of the sound production. Thank you so much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really solid, good-looking turntable I finally got around to upgrading to a decent turntable and have been very happy with this purchase. It looks great, the build quality is really high and it sounds much better than my old turntable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Ever Separates Turntable I bought this a few weeks ago and this was my first foray into separates, so also purchased associated amps speakers etc and couldn't be happier with the turntable itself. It's easy to use, looks fantastic in a shiny classic way, and the pre installed cartridge has even played previously skipping vinyl I tried to butcher on a cheap all in one system. Very Happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Turntable, Easy set-up Decided to re-enter the world of vinyl. After some research decided on this AT turntable. Good advice from Richer Sounds, Arrived promptly after my order, easy to set-up and so far the sound is improving on each play as the cartridge beds-in. I went for this as the stylus options gives an easy upgrade path if I choose to do so. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and easy to set up Was all set to buy an Audio Technica LP5 but after speaking with a representative from Richer Sounds Oxford branch I went for the LPW50PB. Main reasons being it's belt drive, you can switch speeds without removing the platter and it doesn't have a USB out, something I wasn't fussed about. Set up was pretty easy after checking out some videos online plus a little trial and error. The instructions aren't the best but it took me seconds to find what I needed so wouldn't hold that against them. It's the first turntable I've had in 15 years so don't want to compare it to anything but I'm happy with the sound when played through a Sonos Connect Amp

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LPW50PB Turntable Just got this and I’m very happy with it. Build quality is very good and the sound quality is as you’d expect for the price. If you’re playing this through a Sonos you may want a phone pre amp to give the sound a boost. Would definitely recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Audio-Technica AT-LPW50PB turntable Looks great, easy to set up, lovely warm reproduction; just need lots of cleaner for my ancient vinyl before I play it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, looks great, great service This was the second deck I tried as not too keen on the project. In my opinion this AT deck is better looking than the project or rega and has performance and spec that gives it the edge over the latter in that price range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous looking, beautiful sound. The turntable was packed so well, no chance of damage in transit. Set up was quick and easy. The design and construction is beautiful. The sound from the supplied cartridge was limited and not so detailed. When I upgraded the cartridge, the improvement made it all worth it. Crisp, detailed and punchy bass. Perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Turntable I bought this Audio Technica AT-LPW50PB turntable in early February 2020 after a lot of research - and I am glad I did. The sound is wonderful either with the integrated pre-amp or using an external pre-amp. Most of my LP's are nearly fifty years old but this deck has them all singing beautifully. Comes supplied with an excellent cartridge ( AT-VM95E Elliptical). I also took advantage of a free replacement cartridge offer for an In-Store purchase ( AT-VMN95EN Elliptical NUDE Stylus ). Paid top dollar for this deck ( £379.00 ) but it is worth every penny. I would recommend this deck to anyone. Great buy.
